Legend has it that a goatherd named Kaldi discovered coffee when, taking his goats to the slopes of Abyssinia, he noticed that they behaved in an energetic way after consuming a red fruit that they found in the bushes.

Yes, The Grind Of Your Coffee Beans Matters

Like other adjustable factors in coffee brewing, ground density can affect taste. Key things to consider when adjusting your coffee grinder are brewing method, roast, and bean origin. Brewing methods that involve high heat and pressure for short extraction times call for finer grounds. Other methods involving lower pressure and longer brewing times require a coarser grind. Lighter roasts can be ground finer, while dark roasts work better as coarse grounds. If you’re shopping for a coffee grinder, we recommend a burr grinder as found in De'Longhi Bean to Cup coffee machines.

What Makes Specialty Coffee "Special "

Nowadays, “specialty coffee” is a household name, but it’s not always clear what criteria render the coffee special.
