How To Grind Your Espresso Whole Bean
Grinding your espresso whole beans at home gives you the freshest possible brew. The grind releases the aroma of the bean, and the fresh grinds interact with the water for a smoother pull. But you need to grind your espresso whole beans to the right coarseness, otherwise you won’t see results. This can be a delicate process, so we’ll go through some tips to make it as simple and effective as possible.
- Not all grinders are created equal. Different grinders will grind your espresso whole beans differently, so you’ll need to get to know and love your grinder specifically.
- In general, you want an espresso to produce 2 to 2.5 oz of coffee in a 20-30 second pull. This creates a creamy espresso that’s not too watery or too bitter.
- Your espresso grind should usually be slightly finer than granulated sugar.
- If the espresso pull is too fast, filling the cup in less than 20 seconds, you’ll need to grind the beans finer. If it pulls too slow, you’ll want a coarser grind.
- Keep experimenting until you find the grind that works for you. Pull a shot, see what it looks and tastes like, and then keep trying. Keep all the other variables the same including temperature, dosing, and tamp force. Only change up the grind size so you can see which setter on your grinder will work best for your espresso maker.
- Keep in mind that different espresso coffees and blends may require different coarseness. You may need to experiment each time you purchase a new bag to find the right grinder setting.
