Grind Guide

Sam James Coffee Grinding

Properly grinding your beans is one of the most critical factors in brewing coffee. The temperature of the water, the grind of the bean, and the length of time that the two are in contact determine how strong or weak, bold or mild the coffee is. The same coffee bean can give a variety of flavors depending on how you brew it. 

If you don't have time or a grinder, let us grind the coffee for you.

We have an EK43 grinder by Mahlkonig in all of our locations and at our warehouse. This grinder is known for creating the most even grind possible. Please tell us how you're going to brew it, and we'll do the rest. Just make sure you put the ground coffee in the freezer when you get home to keep it fresh. 

If you're into grinding your own coffee and want a better understanding of how it works, here is your quick guide.
