Many coffee lovers rise from coffee beans to order and rave about the aroma of freshly ground coffee. Modern coffee machines with grinder facilitate the preparation of the beans it clear because the grind is often determined by the machine or may be set individually.
However, the user of a simple coffee grinder could tease out from the coffee beans many flavors. The finer the coffee is ground, the more flavor is released. The fine consistency, the water needs namely more time to go through the powder and the more flavor to the cup. The coarser the grind, the less flavor in the coffee and usually this is expressed in a slightly sour aftertaste.
It is also important the dose. Take more powder than usual, the coffee is not stronger but more bitter. Therefore, you should take time to find the right dosage. That one finds the best beans for themselves, is clear anyway. For “beginners” are best suited pure strains. Do not buy mixes but only Arabica or Robusta beans and try something around with the dosage.
We tried to start various beans and then landed vigorously at the Tchibo Crema beans at the end. The beans we weigh every morning from a pot of coffee and grind it very fine in our little coffee grinder. We have found that is almost 20 grams less Tchibo beans for a pot need as other beans. And the Discounter coffee had a strange aftertaste, which we did not like. Therefore, it is clear to us that you can spend quiet for good coffee beans a little more – saves at the end of the amount that you have to grind for good coffee.
