Grind Type Guide
These days coffee shops are on every corner, but still, many people choose to make their morning coffee at home. It saves money and you can make it just the way you like it. There are different types of grinds that go with the different types of coffee makers. I will go over all of the grinds we offer.
French Press Grind
First off we have your French Press. This process of brewing is an immersion. The grinds are immersed in the water together to extract that yummy goodness. A French Press is easy and makes a delicious cup of coffee. The grinds are coarse. The beans should be ground in a burr grinder versus the blade grinder. When using a French Press, you will just need water, coffee, and the press. You measure out the grounds: 2 Tablespoons of coffee to 8 ounces water. Boil the water. Add the grounds and water into the press and let the coffee steep. After about 4 minutes is up, press down on the top of the press. Press slowly. It will separate the grinds and you are now ready to pour and drink.
The French Press Grind is perfect for making Cold Brews too. You just need some water, a mason jar, and time to get this Cold Brew creation to come to life. Pick any coffee in this grind to try out a cold brew. Once you have your base, add milk or water to dilute and enjoy the rush! You can also use the Percolator Grind for Cold brew as well. It is a little bit more coarse. You can play around with the grind to see which suits you best.
Next up, the auto drip machine. This is the Bunn or the Mr. Coffee pot. We call this the Standard Grind. This is the most widely used grind. If you use the trusty ole "coffee pot" then this is a process of running the water through the coffee grounds to create the magic we call coffee. The standard grind is medium. This is what is sold at most groceries stores and is most commonly used. Also this grind can be used in a Siphon coffee machine.
Espresso grind is exactly that. It should be used for the Espresso machine and also the Moka pot method. If you have an espresso machine at home, this is what you want to use. These grinds are fine in texture. Espresso is a delicate process. If this is your choice of coffee, you can perfect your method how you choose.
Turkish may be your method of brewing. This is a very delicious way to take your morning coffee. You will need your favorite Ibrik, 3 oz of water, a spoon of sugar and a stove. Once you add these together, let it foam up 3 times and it is ready to pour. This grind is very fine, almost a powder. Beautiful brewing method and is the oldest to date. We use stoves now versus the hot sand to heat the coffee.
Classic Drip Grind
Lastly, we have the Classic Drip Grind. It is a medium-coarse grind that works for coffee methods of brewing by Chemex or a pour over. These are both great ways to brew your coffee grinds. When doing this use a burr grinder to ensure it does not get too fine and pass through the filter with these methods.
These are just a few different types of grinds that are most popular and we carry at Zodiac Girl Coffee. The type you choose should depend on the machine you will use. This is why it matters. The best cup comes from getting the right grind.
We always suggest that you order whole bean, but if you cannot, we will grind it just like you want. Just one more personal touch. Whichever option you choose, it is all coffee and we approve!
