DOES USING A COFFEE GRINDER MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Yes. By grinding beans at home, you limit their exposure to oxygen which means you’re using the freshest grounds possible. Plus, you can adjust grind size for brew methods like French press, pour over or espresso. Freshly ground beans will help create coffee with a richer flavor and aroma.
Freshly ground coffee can have a more robust flavor because the grounds start oxidizing immediately, a process that drains flavor from the beans. Pre-ground coffee is also typically prepared for the drip method only. If you want to make specialty drinks with espresso or cold brew, for instance, a customized grind can deliver a more full-bodied, flavorful beverage.
