What is coffee without the bean? Hot water is what it is. The coffee bean is the fundamental ingredient that needs to be brewed to make coffee. The difference between decent coffee and great coffee is the bean's type of roast and when the bean was ground. Every time you buy fresh coffee beans and ask the checkout person at the coffee shop to grind your beans you are opening up the "flavor cells" and causing your beans to begin losing their flavor rapidly. The purpose of grinding the beans is to create a larger surface area that will release the flavor and oils to the surrounding hot water. If coffee is prematurely exposed to air, it "breathes", leaving less and less flavor for the brew, when the water finally hits the bean. It only takes a few moments to grind your own beans. The difference it makes will surprise you. Burr grinders are said to be the best option for grinding coffee beans. Most Burr grinders include a compartment at the top of the grinder that holds the beans. This is an airtight compartment that will keep the beans fresh until you are ready to grind them. When you are ready to grind, simply select the amount of coffee you'd like to prepare and the Burr grinder will release that amount of beans to be ground. Owning a coffee grinder and grinding coffee beans at your own home will give you the maximum experience of the true joy of coffee. Adding the Kitchenaid Pro Line Series KPCG100 Burr Coffee Mill is a dependable way to assure you're getting great coffee. It's what you deserve every moment you brew and taste a cup.
