Five Reasons Why….You Should Grind Your Own Coffee
I always bought ground coffee because it was convenient and readily available (sometimes I still do if it is a good deal). I never really thought about grinding my own coffee until I came across some specialty coffees that I wanted, but you could only buy a whole bean. If you know me, then you probably know that I love kitchen gadgets. I’ve got’em all (not really); cherry/olive pitter, garlic press, lemon zester, electric can opener that is stored in a drawer, etc… so it isn’t difficult to convince me to get new gadgets. However now that I live in a smaller space, I find myself interested in only the most useful ones that take up the least amount of space. That is why I present to you…
Mo’s Five Reasons Why You Should Grind Your Own Coffee
- Your coffee will be fresher. When you buy ground coffee it has had more exposure to the air and is losing flavor. When you grind it yourself you can grind as much or as little as you want at a time (usually depending on how fast you consume your coffee).
- A grinder is multipurpose! Most grinders can be used for other things like spices, I have ground up many spices in mine.
- It is easy to use and clean. Pour beans into cup, attach cup to machine, press button, brew newly ground beans, wipe clean with a dampened cloth.
- Fresher coffee = More flavor! And after all, isn’t that what you want from your cup of coffee?
- Control. You can control the grind size of your coffee. From espresso to French press to drip coffee makers, you can make all of these out of one bag of coffee if you grind it yourself!
