The perfect grind for your coffee

The grind plays a crucial role in coffee preparation. If you feel that your coffee tastes too strong or bitter, the grind is probably set too fine. If the grind is too coarse, the coffee will taste watery and more acidic.

Of course, everything is always a matter of taste, but here are a few guidelines that can help you on the way to your own personal, perfect setting of the grind.


The perfect grind for your coffee 

Very fine grind: espresso machine, portafilter machine

Fine grind: Espresso maker/ stove-top cooker (e.g. Bialetti), Aeropress

Medium grind: hand filter, coffee maker, Chemex

Coarse grind: Stamp pot/ French Press, Cold Brew
