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:

It was exciting to get a portion of the Cup of Excellence lot from Bella Vista since we had just recently featured a different lot of their coffee. That black label pushed the threshold of a traditional Guatemalan coffee, so we were extremely excited to see how Bella Vista would treat a Gesha bean. We were not disappointed in the slightest. The way this coffee balances delicacy with complexity is mind-blowing.

Notes of fruited bitterness from cacao nibs alongside a perfect sweetness of pear or plum make this cup a pleasure to sip. Taking a step back on the palate helps display the underlying aromatics of white tea. The best parts of a traditional Guatemalan flavor profile come together with the best parts of a Gesha bean.

Bella Vista

Arcenio Castillo started to help his father, Felino Castillo, grow and process coffee when he was just 10 years old. When he was 18, his father gave him a small plot of coffee which he cultivated for several years. His dream was to expand his small plot and, years later, his dream has come true.

That dream of his has a name and it's called Bella Vista Farm. Together Arcenio, his wife, Rosa Lopez, and their three children have dedicated hard work to the farm which is shown in the quality of their delicious beans.
