The Coffee Ground Guide


Have you ever heard someone talking about their coffee and that they want a “medium” grind? Ever wondered the “coarse-grind” marking on the side of a coffee bag is for? These terms can get confusing if you don’t know what you’re hearing, so we’re here to help you out!

Coffee is ground in different consistencies depending on how you’re brewing it. Here at Finest of Coffee, you can order your coffee whole bean, and grind it yourself if you’re selective about your coffee grind,  or you can order it in one of five different grinds we have available on our website! 


Our Espresso-style grind is designed especially to work with espresso machines to bring you the richest flavor possible. It’s a fine blend that will work with any machine, and you don’t have to worry about getting this right by simply ordering this grind from the product page!


Coffee ground in our fine blend is great for standard pour-over cones (yum!) or a Moka pot. If you’re working with a manual coffee brewing solution (other than a French press) this grind is perfect for you.


Most of you will be able to make perfectly delicious coffee with Standard grind! This is for standard drip coffee pots, like are found in most homes, and will provide you cafe flavor in the comforts of your home.

Medium Coarse

This grind is perfect for specialty coffee brewing methods like the French press and Chemex. It guarantees a richer taste that will leave you coming back for more. 


If you’ve ever wanted to make your own cold brew at home, a good coarse grind is essential. Order this grind if you want to use your coffee to make cold brew, or if you prefer a coarser grind for your French press and Chemex brews.


Which grind is your favorite? We love making cold brews and keeping our French press busy making our morning pick-me-up. Let us know what your favorite is in the comments below!

(Also, as a sneak peek...we’ve got something exciting coming up later this week! If you never want to worry about running out of coffee again, stay tuned!)
