Any coffee pro will tell you that whole beans give you the best coffee. If you had never considered buying coffee beans and grinding them yourself, you're missing out on a great opportunity. Although pre-ground coffee is convenient, whole beans provide so many benefits other than getting a quick cup of caffeine. Here are some of the reasons why you might make the switch.
Whole bean coffee is fresh
Coffee is at its freshest one to two weeks after it is roasted. By the time the bags hit the shelves, most grocery store brands will be past that point. What's more, these manufacturers pre-grind their coffee, and this type of roast loses its natural flavor in 20 to 30 minutes.
Pre-ground coffee would have lost much of the natural sugars and gentle aromas that give the beans their distinctive flavors. You'll have a fuller experience of the bean if you drink it right after grinding.
You can use any brewer for whole beans
If you want to make home espresso or pour-over coffee, you need to have a brewer that can accommodate the right grind size. If you have an auto-drip coffee, it's OK to use pre-ground beans. However, if you're thinking of getting specialty coffee makers, pre-ground won't cut it.
For example, if you have an AeroPress, you can only use coarse to medium grinds. Meanwhile, Turkish coffee and espresso will need a machine that processes extra fine grinds.
If you have pre-ground coffee, you cannot customize your blend to make the best coffee for you. If you're considering whole bean coffee, get a burr grinder; it gives you flexibility on your grind's coarseness.
Using whole beans lets you control the flavor
When you use whole beans, you can determine the brewing speed, one of the most critical factors. Large grounds take longer to extract than small ones; when you adjust the grind size, you affect the time it takes to roast, which influences the coffee's flavor.
For example, if your coffee tastes bitter, you can change it. If you have fresh beans, there's no reason for the roast to be bitter; when that happens, it means you extracted too much. Coarsely grinding your beans will reduce the total extraction and bring balance to the flavor.
Meanwhile, if the coffee is sour, it's likely that you under-extracted. Your grounds did not brew enough. If you use a finer grind size, you can increase the extraction speed and make your coffee taste a little less acidic. If you have whole beans and a burr grinder, you are in greater control of how your coffee cup tastes every morning. You don't have to put up with a bitter or sour grind.
When you have rich, fresh, and flavorful coffee, it makes your day a little better. Your daily cup of coffee will be more than a dull ritual. If you drink a cup that you blended for yourself, it gives you an extra push to start your day on the right foot. Try it; get yourself a burr grinder and some whole beans, and brew your perfect cup of coffee today!
