Finer for espresso, coarser for filtered
Are you buying your coffee as beans? If not, you might want to give it a thought, as getting the right grind for you can make a huge difference. Why is this important? Well, it will allow you to extract all the flavour quickly (before they lose their aroma after grinding) to allow for that perfect cup of coffee. Finer for espresso, coarser for filtered.
Lose up to 60% of it’s aroma within 15 minutes
Some studies say that ground coffee can lose up to 60 % of it’s aroma within 15 minutes after grinding, so if you’re wondering why coffee at home doesn’t taste as good as at your favourite cafe this could be one reason.
Brew with care and before taking the first sip
Coffee brewing itself is a chemist-like process that you can spend your whole life studying, but covering basic things is enough to many of us. Brew with care and before taking the first sip, take a second and appreciate the long journey it has travelled, just for you and your health.
