Roaster’s Tips

Tip #1 How you grind your coffee greatly impacts the end result in your cup.

All brew methods require a slightly different grind texture for the ideal extraction from the coffee beans. For AeroPress the rule of thumb is usually medium grind setting.For those wanting to take it to the next level have a look at what grinder you’re using and choose a Burr grinder over a Blade Grinder. Blade Grinders chop the beans up unevenly so that some of the coffee ends up as large particles and some turn into powdery dust. This effects the flavour of your brew. Burr Grinders slowly crush the coffee rather than chopping it, which results in even grinding.

Our Roaster rates both the Bezzera BB05 and Porlex Grinder.


Tip #2 Try the inverted AeroPress brew method for a cleaner coffee.
