What Is Auto Drip Grind

Perfect grounds equals great coffee

The backbone of great coffee = the perfect coffee grounds (1). Don’t underestimate the importance of grinding:

The coffee grinder is a supremely important link in the chain that extends from the coffee cherry to an exquisite espresso!

Your grounds are your most valuable and overlooked tool, until today. I’m going to share with you where you have been going wrong, and everything else there is to know about grinding coffee. By the time you have finished reading this post, you’ll be brewing the best coffee of your life.

First we’re going to take a quick look at the different grind sizes, when you should use each, and with which settings you can achieve them with your coffee grinder. Needless to say, you must find the best coffee grinder to suit your needs.


Before you read any further: if you’ve been using a blade grinder for your coffee beans, you’ve been making the most common coffee grinding mistake that exists. Do NOT grind your coffee beans with a blade grinder. Doing so is WORSE than buying pre-ground coffee.

Yes, worse. Why?

First of all, the key to brewing a great cup of coffee is consistency, and if your little grinds are not all the same size, some will be over extracted, some will be under extracted, and the result will be, well… shit coffee.



Blade grinders leave your grounds inconsistent. This makes brewing good coffee hard.

Shake your blade grinder around all you want, you’re never going to get them 100% consistent…but if you’re stuck somewhere with nothing but a blade grinder, there is something you can do…but be prepared to work for it. James Hoffman nailed it with this video:

Aside from a clear lack of consistency, blade coffee grinders have another pitfall: they can only work by spinning extremely fast, which causes heat and friction. This heat and friction, as you guessed, is bad news. This means your coffee is already heating up so it won’t taste as fresh and the end result will be overcooked.

Now, compare all that nonsense to a burr grinder, which use uniform pressure and rotation to essentially ‘crush’ beans into a perfect consistency. They can achieve this at low speeds, meaning no added heat, and maintain a precise and consistent uniform grind.

Too sum it up

  • Choose a conical burr grinder, not a blade grinder (both hand or electric grinders are fine, as long as they grind with burrs)
  • Blade grinders suck at achieving uniform grounds. Uniform grounds make even coffee extraction easy.
  • If you’re stuck with a Blade grinder, there are a few hacks you can use to make the grounds better

Brewing for espresso? It’s even more critical that your grinds are uniform/consistent.If you use something like a blade grinder, here’s what is likely to happen, and don’t say we didn’t warn you:
