Grind Guide

Having the proper grind size can have a big impact on how your coffee tastes. If it’s too coarse or too fine, you can end up with an over or under extracted cup. Use our grind guide to make sure you get the grind right every time, we’ve included a visual comparison to help! Need a grinder? We love the Baratza Encore or the Porlex Mini Hand Grinder.

French Press – coarse (size of polenta)

Cold Brew – coarse (size of celery seed)

Hario V60 – fine (size of ground black pepper)

Aeropress – fine (size of ground black pepper)

Chemex – coarse (size of polenta)
