Selecting the Right Coffee Grind Size

Selecting the Right Coffee Grind Size

The coarseness of your ground coffee depends on what brewing method you are going to use. Basically, if you brew coffee that is ground too coarse your coffee will be weak. If the coffee is ground too fine your coffee will be strong and bitter. The coffee grind size can greatly affect the taste of your final brew.

Identifying the grind

  • Course
    • Distinct chunky pieces of coffee beans
      • Think kosher salt
  • Medium
    • Gritty texture with visible flakes
      • Think coarse sand
  • Fine
    • Smooth texture
      • Think table salt
  • Extra Fine
    • Barely discernable coffee grains
      • Think sugar
  • Turkish
    • Powdered with no grains
      • Think flour
