How to achieve the perfect grind

The backbone of great coffee lies with perfect coffee grounds. This is achieved with a quality grinder that is cleaned daily and looked after on a regular basis.

Don’t look at grinding as just another step in coffee preparation. See it as an instrumental way to control your coffee brew, flavour, and ultimately the reason your customer will come back on a daily basis.

Finding the perfect grind is critical to producing the perfect cup of coffee. It is important to note, however, that no matter how good the quality of your coffee is, or how smooth your espresso machine operates, if the grind is not set correctly, your coffee will lack flavour, body, taste, and aroma.
