Coffee Grind Size Chart

The Coffee Grind size is a huge factor to the quality and taste of your coffee, it directly affects how much time the coffee ground is in touch with water. If the grind is too fine, your coffee can be over-extracted, and tastes bitter. If the grind is too coarse, your coffee can be under-extracted, and tastes weak and flat.
