Grind Size Reference

By Kimberly Wells Dupries October 18, 2017 0 comments

Knowing which grind size to pick is important in order to get the best result for the coffee you are brewing.

Below we have listed out seven grind sizes which coordinate with specific brew methods.

Not every grind size is best for different extraction methods.  Example: You wouldn't want to use the same grind size for both a French press and for putting in your auto-drip machine.  The grind sizes listed below work best with certain brew methods.

(Note: Some grind sizes can be used for more than one brew method. You just have to adjust the brew time for the best flavor extraction.)
