It is important to have the correct grinding equipment for the perfect cup of coffee. Different brewing methods require different sizes for coffee beans. Identify grind size based on the following:


  • Coarse: Distinct, chunky, pieces of coffee beans. Similar to coarse sea salt.
  • Medium: Gritty texture with visible flakes. Similar to very coarse sand.
  • Fine: Much smoother texture. Similar to table salt, but a little finer.
  • Extra Fine: Coffee grains just barely discernable. Finer than granular sugar.
  • Turkish: Powered with no grains. Similar to flour.


  • Coarse: Plunger pot, French press, Vacuum coffee pot, Percolator
  • Medium: Drip coffee makers with flat bottom filters
