At ehya café, when placing your order, you can choose your mix and grind in a personalized way. Here is a brief description that will help you decide better. How to choose the right grind according to your coffee maker or extraction method?

Let's start by understanding what is the degree of grinding?

The degree of grinding has to do with the thickness of our ground coffee, determined by the grinding point that was chosen in our mill, which is determined by the type of coffee maker that is going to be used to prepare coffee. That is to say, it is not the same grind used in an American coffee pot as for a French press.

There are many variables that will affect the flavor of your coffee, such as brew time which is determined by the thickness of the coffee particles. For example, if we take a glass with sand and pour water into it, the time in which the water passes through it will be greater, if we fill it with small stones, that is what is called extraction time and it will greatly affect the preparation of your coffee.

Recommended grinds for each method:
