The grinding of the coffee blend
- An espresso grind is a very fine grind yet still granular.
- Coffee loses its flavour rapidly once ground therefore only grind as much as is needed for the next espresso beverage.
- Temperature, humidity and wearing of the grinder burrs all affect the accuracy of the grind setting, therefore each morning you may find you need to ‘dial-in’ your grinder (make the grind setting coarser or finer) This will be the difference between good coffee and great coffee.
- It is important to have a good burr grinder with a fully adjustable grind setting.
