From Our FAQ

Which coffee grind is right for me?

- Use drip grind if you plan on making your coffee using a coffee machine, in a pour over brewer, or if you want to try a newer way to make your trusty French press.

- Use espresso grind if you have an espresso machine at home. This grind will be very fine and will over-extract (in other words, taste bitter and chalky) in other methods.

- Use French press grind if you are making a coffee in the more traditional French Press method, or making cold brew, or do very large batches in a Chemex (greater than 60 grams of coffee).

Fine, Drip, and French Press Grind Settings

Why isn’t my favorite coffee being offered right now?

Coffee is a seasonal crop and when we choose to offer coffees, we buy them at the peak of their season. Coffee crops by region vary throughout the year, so African coffees will be offered at different times than South American coffees. See more on our Sourcing page.

What do your flavor notes mean?

Taste descriptions on our non-flavored coffees are notes that we found were most prevalent within that unique coffee. They can be used as a guide on notes you may experience when brewing. None of these coffees are flavored post-roast in any way, but should be thought of as taste experiences you would find outside of coffee. For example, Ethiopian coffees tend to have a light, tea-like drinking experience, and Central American coffees generally have a nutty-like sweetness. Your experience and taste notes you pick up on will likely be different than ours and you should use our notes as a guide to choose coffees you think you would enjoy.
Our single origin coffees come with "Spider Charts" that break down a coffee by its different tastes.
