How To Grind Coffee The Right Way

| March 9, 2012 | 5 Comments


There are those that buy their coffee ground and there are those that make the extra effort to grind their coffee fresh every morning. When the flavor of your coffee is that important to you, you grind fresh everyday because it’s well worth it to have the aroma of fresh ground coffee, there is nothing like it. It’s a wonderful bouquet you look forward to every morning.

Many people don’t know there is a right way and wrong way to grind.

We all know there are three ways you can grind coffee. Course, medium and fine being the most well known settings on any coffee grinder. But there are also more settings like super-fine and Turkish grind.

With all the different ways to prepare your coffee, how do you know which grind works best with which coffee maker?


A Coarse Grind is generally used for the following:

  • French Press (press or plunger pot)
  • Toddy Makers (cold brew method)
  • Vacuum Coffee Maker
  • Percolator (they still have those!)


A Medium Grind:

  •  Auto Drip Makers (with flat bottom filters)


A Medium/Fine Grind:

  •  Drip Makers (with cone shaped filters)


A Fine Grind:

  • Stove Top Espresso Pots
  • Some Drip Makers (with cone shaped filters)


A Super Fine Grind:

  •  Espresso Machines


A Turkish Grind:

  •  Well, uh… that would be for the uh… Turkish Style Coffee, yeh, that’s it!


Here are a few coffee grinders I chose as examples of good to better quality and price range for any budget.
