However, deciding which of the 325 gourmet coffees you’re going to enjoy might not be the hardest choice you make.
|To grind or not to grind, that is the question. |
Why does it make a difference if we grind it here and then send it to you, or if you grind it at home once you get it? That’s a really great question and it’s what we’re going to talk about. Gourmet coffee has incredible taste and it’s important to do what’s necessary to get the best cup of coffee you can. A little bit about grinding.
Grinding roasted coffee beans can be done at a roaster, a retailer, or in your home. Coffee beans can be ground to several different specifications. A burr grinder uses revolving elements to shear the bean, while a blade grinder smashes the beans. A burr grinder is considered to be the better of the two options as it leads to a more consistent grind. It also has less of a chance of overheating the beans.
The type of grind is often named after the brewing method for which it is generally used. Turkish grind is the finest grind, while coffee percolators or French presses are the coarsest grind. The most common grinds are found in between the extremes; a medium grind, or automatic-drip, is used in most common home coffee brewing machines. We at JL Hufford offer 9 different grind settings for your Gourmet Coffee.What to do.
For some, grinding here, there, or everywhere makes no matter. For others, it could make all the difference in the world. Grinding at home allows for many positives with few negatives. The biggest three I have identified are freshness, less chance of waste, and optimal performance.
Gourmet coffee beans produce the freshest cup of coffee if brewed right after being ground. When you pre-grind beans, you are letting valuable gasses and oils escape from your gourmet coffee unnecessarily. With grinding at home, you can guarantee when your coffee was ground as well as using only what necessary. This allows for more of your gourmet coffee to be used during its optimum taste period.
With utilizing your gourmet coffee more, you will need less over time. This results from needing to throw less of your coffee away because it has gone stale. While we at JL Hufford would love to sell as much gourmet coffee as possible, we believe in taking care of planet. This is why we stand behind practices that promote reducing waste.
The most beneficial reason behind grinding at home lies in optimizing your home brewing system’s performance. Not all home brewing systems function the same way. This means that each coffee machine could need a specific grind size. With grinding your own coffee at home, this allows for multiple opportunities to find out exactly what your machine needs and continually get the best coffee that your machine can produce.
We are big proponents of grinding at home as it allows you to have as much control over coffee experience as possible. Here are three suggestions for grinders that we find consistently meet and exceed the expectations of our customers.
