If you are an avid coffee drinker then you probably know but for those who do not,
Why should we grind our own coffee beans?
The main reasons we drink coffee is for the taste and caffeine. The flavor components and oils are what makes this happen. The protective shell on the roasted coffee bean is what protects and preserves these ingredients. When you buy pre-grinded coffee these ingredients become exposed to contamination, oxygen, moisture, and carbon dioxide depletion resulting in an aroma and flavor loss. Different grind sizes for different brewing methods, how much coffee you use and how much you make can also influence your coffee experience.
I have only become a real fan of coffee in the past 3 years. I certainly did not know much about home grinded coffee beans. I have heard many times over the years of people doing it, so I was very excited to try the Clara’s Coffee Ceramic Burr Manual Coffee Grinder. This one is manual, so you will have to put a little effort into it. I think this is a plus because now when my family and I go camping or just on vacation I can now bring my own French Press and Coffee Grinder to have the perfect cup of coffee no matter the situation.
Manual grinders also have no electronic parts to make it work. This means that it should last longer. The grinder is made in a very stylish Stainless Steel and works much like a pepper grinder. You change the grind size by turning the knob near the blade. Clockwise to make the grind more fine and counter clockwise for coarse. You fill the chamber and turn the handle. Grinding is almost effortless and I think it is great being able to change the grind size. I hold it in the center and turn to ensure it stays together. The results are fantastic and my coffee is delicious!
