Answers for Common Brewing Questions
Does the type of grinder matter?
It absolutely does!
The grinder you buy does not have to be expensive, but it needs to be a burr grinder and not a blade grinder.
Blade grinders can not control the consistency of the grind size. When doing a pour over, which is our recommended method, the grinds need to be between a medium and fine grind size to get the best results.
Whats the difference between a French Press and Pour Over?
When doing a French press you need a coarser grind to help keep the grinds from escaping through the plunger device and into your coffee. A French press takes anywhere from 8-10 minutes to complete, while with a pour over all you need is a cone shaped filter. The device to hold the filter and hot water is heated to approximately 200 degrees.
