Grind Levels Explained

Proper coffee extraction is critical for achieving that perfect cup at home. Grind size is one of the few ways to be able to directly affect that extraction rate.

In addition to whole coffee beans, we currently offer 3 different coffee grind levels:

Coarse (Think sugar in the raw, maybe more coarse)
Recommended for

  • Chemex Brewer
  • French Press
  • Cold Brew

Medium (Slightly coarser than table salt)
Recommended for

  • Any flat bottom brewer
  • Kalitta wave
  • Cloth filters

Fine (Slightly finer than table salt)
Recommended for

  • V60 pour overs
  • Typical cone filter coffee pots
  • Aeropress

If you're interested in ground for Espresso, choose fine and mention something in the order comments.

If at all possible, we recommend grinding at home. We prefer Baratza coffee grinders and offer several of their models for sale. Click here to shop for one of their brewers.

In the Cup:

Why the heck is this decaf a Black Label? I’ll tell you why: because it deserves to be. This isn’t only “fantastic for a decaf”; it’s a fantastic coffee period. The delicate berry-like sweetness comes forth with notes of strawberry while a naturally smooth nuttiness brings in a dynamic twist. As it cools, an overwhelmingly sweet fruitiness makes itself known with notes of crisp apple. A smooth-bodied and dynamically sweet coffee makes this the absolute perfect after-dinner treat.

Finca Castellon

This natural Castillo comes from Finca Castellon. Grown and processed by Jairo Arcila, a third-generation coffee producer. Even though he retired in 2019, Felipe and Carlos started Cofinet and aid in producing lots like this one. This Castillo lot was dried before being sent off to the sugar cane decaffeination treatment, in order to strip away the caffeine. Usually decaf coffees are an afterthought, with 83-84 point washed coffees being homogenized into one large (and sometimes boring) decaf lot. Cofinet has taken a different approach, creating a decaf that is worthy of the moniker of specialty coffee.
