Make café coffee at home - buy a coffee grinder

Grinding your own coffee may seem like a tedious and unnecessary process to many. But with the right equipment and the right ingredients, it's a simple job that opens up whole new doors in the world of coffee.

The main reason to use a coffee grinder is simple: freshly ground beans make the best and most flavorful coffee. That's because half of the substances that give coffee its great taste disappear quickly after grinding. That's why it's also important to grind the beans as close to brewing as possible. Then you'll get the best and most flavorful result.

Correct storage

By storing your coffee in beans and not pre-ground, as well as protected from sunlight, heat and moisture, the flavors will be preserved much longer and the shelf life of the coffee will be optimized.

Grinding provides greater flexibility

Grinding the beans yourself also gives you greater control over the coffee you make. First and foremost, it allows you to brew all types of coffee from the same beans by adjusting the grind level on the grinder. Wilfa's coffee grinders grind from fine-grained "espresso grind" to coarse-grained "coca grind".

The grinding degree can also be adjusted to customize the contact time the coffee needs with the water. A finer grind needs less contact time to extract the flavors, and is well suited to brewing smaller amounts of coffee. At the same time, the degree of grinding will have a big impact on the final taste. If you think the coffee is too bitter, grind it more coarsely. If you find it too watery and acidic, grind the beans finer.

Good equipment doesn't have to be expensive

There is a sea of different coffee grinders on the market that promise gold and green forests. The challenge is to separate the good ones from the not-so-good ones, and to avoid buying a pig in a poke, it's a good idea to start with what needs the grinder will meet.
