It is thus opposed to the " blend ", a mixture of several terroirs which has the advantage of harmonizing the taste of the coffee.

Arabica is known to offer better aromas . As for Robusta , its main quality is to favor crema ( ideal in Latte Art ) on your espresso and the power of the body of your coffee. The more intense and "strong" coffees generally contain Robusta , with a more advanced roast, while the softer and more aromatic coffees are most often 100% Arabica, with Medium roasts, also called "monk's robe" .
Ground coffee is the most widely consumed form of coffee. It takes the form of coffee powder resulting from the grinding of coffee beans . All coffee comes from the coffee tree. The cherries of the tree are picked and processed to access the seeds inside, called green coffee beans. These coffee beans are then roasted before they are ready to be consumed and are called whole coffee beans. In order to extract as much flavor as possible, the beans are ground into fine particles .
How much coffee powder for a cup?
For a cup of coffee, we usually say that you need 7 g of coffee, whether it is ground or in beans. Depending on your taste, you can use a little less if you prefer a milder coffee, or a little more for a stronger coffee.
The manufacturers take care to deliver your coffee at the ideal grind and therefore adapted to your machine. This saves time in your daily life while offering you a unique moment, all the aromatic complexity of an Arabica for example, all the balance of flavors and taste notes that it has to offer.
Even when roasted to perfection, if it is not used correctly , it will only reveal part of the aroma it contains. It is thus necessary to really take into account the grind size according to the method of extraction . Moreover, even when well preserved, the grind remains in contact with the ambient air , which can alter the taste of the coffee even slightly. It is preferable to keep it in an airtight box .
Which ground coffee to use when preparing an Italian coffee maker, a piston coffee maker or a Chemex for example? Each " coffee maker " requires a different grind for a balanced coffee. To begin with, you need to know: With a coarse grind, the water flows too quickly and it will not have time to impregnate the coffee's aromas. This is called under-extraction: the result in the cup will be very diluted, with an extremely weak aromatic intensity. In the jargon, we call this ... sock juice! If the water flows too slowly, the grind is too fine and the result will be overloaded with aromas. This is called over-extraction: the result in the cup will be extremely concentrated and will develop a very strong bitterness.
Grind for manual espresso machine
It makes the fastest coffee extraction: between 20 and 30 seconds only! This is why you need a very fine grind, which will slow down the speed of the water flow and will allow to moisten the whole coffee cake.
Grind for Italian coffee maker
The coffee brews more slowly in Italian coffee makers than in a manual espresso machine ( a few minutes ). With its very atypical operation, the Italian coffee maker requires a fine grind, nevertheless coarser than the one used for the espresso.
Grind for filter coffee maker
Depending on the water diffusion system, the coffee brewing time generally ranges from 3 to 5 minutes . I therefore advise you to choose a medium fine grind.
Grind for piston coffee maker and "SlowCoffee"
And finally, a little focus on two types of equipment that are becoming more and more widespread: piston coffee makers (French Press) and SlowCoffee carafes (Chemex, D- Kanta, Hario V60...). With these coffee makers, the brewing time of the coffee is between 4 and 5 minutes . Thus, for these methods of extraction, the water flows more quickly: it will be necessary to use a rather coarse grind. Don't be afraid of an uneven and deliberately coarse grind.
Unlike pods, capsules... Coffee beans and ground coffee are more environmentally friendly ! In addition to not producing biodegradable waste , it is also more economical in the long term.
A bean cultivated without care, on plots without character will not offer a good coffee: at best, you will have a flat coffee, thus without much interest. To obtain beautiful gourmet aromas, always opt for coffees with real identities. And finally, adapt your coffee according to your drink and your own preferences!
