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:

We cupped this coffee a few times in different contexts (mostly just because we wanted to keep trying it), and it was a showstopper every time. But, the most eye-opening cupping happened during one our local cupping classes, when we used some Mama Cata coffee that we had from a sample roast to feature what a Gesha bean tastes like. Amongst our other standard gold labels and brown labels, the comparison was unmatched. This truly is one of the best Guatemalan coffees we’ve ever offered. Tea-like consistency in the body is the first thing to take note of as you are then met with various berry sweetnesses and acidities. Direct notes of raspberries, blueberries, and cranberry reduction are front and center. The consistent sweetness can only be described as chocolate truffle also sits underneath it all to round out a light, smooth, sweet, delicious cup.
