Tips for grinding coffee beans
Regarding the grinding of coffee beans, a lot is about what your own preferences look like - and how the coffee should be prepared after grinding. The beauty of grinding your own coffee beans is that you can easily go from a finer grind to a coarser one and thus also adapt the coffee to, for example, a coffee press or a perculator. The choice of coffee beans is of course also something that you have every opportunity to experiment with and find your own favorite.
If you look at the degree of grinding, a finer grind is usually recommended for those who have mocha brewing or if you want to make an espresso - even for a regular brewer, the coffee should be a little finer ground. Coarse grinding, on the other hand, is suitable for coffee press and boiling coffee. But, as I said: you can try it yourself and find the degree of grinding that is best for the coffee machine you use.
