When coffee lovers first decide to take things into their own hands and begin to improve the coffee they brew at home, one of the first pieces of equipment they buy is a coffee grinder, because coffee made from beans that are ground just before brewing has significantly more aroma and depth of flavor than most pre-ground product. Now, many coffee experts say that the quality of the grind is way up there in importance with the quality of the beans when it comes to the effect, for good or ill, on the end product.
Certainly, great quality coffee, roasted carefully and bought fresh, is the bedrock of any outstanding cup of coffee. There is no way to make delicious coffee from bad beans. It is possible, however, to take good beans and not do them justice, and this can happen for many reasons, and often it’s because the grind isn’t quite right.
Conical burr grinders are a big step up from other home grinders for two important reasons. It grinds at a cooler temperature than many other home machines, which preserves aroma and flavor for your cup, where it belongs. It also grinds much more consistently, meaning most of the particles are of similar size. Consistent grind is important because of extraction time; all of your coffee grounds will be exposed to the water for the same amount of time, so pieces of bean that are too large will not fully extract, while too-small pieces and dust will over-extract (which means bitterness).
So, treat your coffee-loving Dad (or yourself!) to the Capresso Infinity Conical Burr Grinder this Father’s Day! It is a solid performer and is built to last. Your coffee will have lots of aroma and will be smooth and sweet; just like Dad. :)
