Since coffee loses flavour gradually after grinding, we always recommend buying whole coffee beans and grinding them shortly before brewing. We recommend the following two coffee burr grinders as they are equipped with an accurate disc mill:

amazon-logo_spiegeleffekt  Severin Kaffeemühle KM 3874 mit Scheibenmahlwerk (a low-price option)

amazon-logo_spiegeleffekt  Rommelsbacher Kaffeemühle EKM 200 mit Scheibenmahlwerk (a more pricey option)

 

There are two basic rules for grinding coffee:

1. The finer the grind, the more intensive the flavour.

During grinding the coffee beans are split in small parts. The smaller the parts, the more surface area is available for the water to absorb the aromas. A very coarse grind gives an almost tea-like bright brew, and a very fine one gives a stronger dark coffee.

2. The shorter the coffee powder comes into contact with water, the finer the grind should be.

For example, because the brewing of espresso in a portafilter takes only 25-30 seconds, the espresso beans must be ground very finely. On the other hand, the coffee for the French Press, in which the extraction time is up to 4 minutes, needs rather a coarse grind.  

 

The right grind for each coffee brewing method:

- Fine grind is best for: espresso machines, manul coffee filters, compartment for coffee powder in automatic coffee machines

- Medium fine grid is best for: moka pots / espresso makers, coffee filter machines, AeroPress

- Coarse grid is best for: French Press, round filter coffee machines, Karlsbad coffee pots

- Whole beans are best for: coffee machines with an integrated grinder / fully automatic coffee machines, coffee grinders.
