GRIND GUIDE

We will happily grind your coffee to order if you can't access a grinder. To truly appreciate the best of your coffee however, you really need to start with whole beans. Pre-ground coffee loses its flavor quickly. If you don't have a coffee grinder, we think it's the best investment you could make for your coffee game.

Coffee grinders come in two basic forms: blade grinders, which use propeller-type blades that work like a blender, literally chopping the beans as they spin; and burr grinders, which use grooved discs that grind the beans like the interior workings of a pepper grinder.

Even though blade grinders are normally cheaper than the burr grinders, the ground results are uneven and poorer quality. We recommend you invest a little more in a burr grinder. You will lift your coffee game to the next level and never look back!
