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:

Sweet, sweet, sweet, and tangy. This coffee is reminiscent of our prized “Panama Lotus” bean that we had available in the winter of 2022, except it’s a fraction of the cost. With only a slight *fermented shadow behind a plethora of fruited flavor notes, the fruity sweetness and acidity create an extremely fun cup of coffee that keeps you guessing as it cools. Lots of berry sweetness right off the bat with a touch of malic acidity finished off with an almost alcoholic essence similar to that of red wine. To anyone who enjoys the crazy profiles of fermented coffees, this will knock your socks off.

Aricha is the name of the washing station where this coffee is processed. Edido is the village, or kebele, where this coffee is grown and processed, in a microregion of Yirgacheffe. Aricha is about 8 kilometers from the center of Yirgacheffe Town. The soils in this region are red-brown clay soil, about 1.5 meters deep. We like the complex, almost tropical quality of coffees from Aricha and their juicy fruitiness and sugary, floral sweetness.
