Should I order whole bean or ground coffee?

Whole bean and ground coffee?

One reason is freshness. Whole bean coffee stays fresher longer than ground coffee because the beans are not exposed to as much air. When coffee beans are ground, the surface area of the beans are increased, which increases the amount of air that comes in contact with the coffee.  As a result, ground coffee gets stale faster than whole bean coffee.

 It also depends on your brewing method. Some brewing methods, such as espresso, work best with finely ground coffee, while others, such as French press or pour-over, work best with coarsely ground coffee. If you are using a specific brewing method that requires a certain grind size, you may need to purchase pre-ground coffee or you would need to purchase a higher quality coffee grinder (like a conical burr grinder).

Whole bean coffee is fresher and can produce a better-tasting cup of coffee, but there are also some advantages to using pre-ground coffee, such as convenience and the ability to get the right grind size for your brewing method. It all depends on your opinion.  

If you prefer whole bean coffee but need a new grinder then consider searching for that perfect fit to your kitchen at Amazon.

What are the most common ways to brew coffee?

There are many different ways to brew coffee, and the method you choose will depend on your personal preferences and what you have available. Here are a some of the most common brewing methods:

Drip brewing: This method involves using a drip coffee maker, in which hot water is poured over ground coffee and filters into a carafe or mug.

French press: In this method, coarsely ground coffee is placed in a pot or carafe with hot water, and the mixture is allowed to steep for several minutes. The coffee is then pressed through a metal or nylon mesh filter to separate the grounds from the liquid.

Pour-over: This method involves pouring hot water over ground coffee that has been placed in a cone-shaped filter. The water filters through the grounds and into a carafe or mug.

Aeropress: This method involves using a handheld device to press hot water through ground coffee, which produces a smooth and concentrated brew.

Espresso: This method involves using an espresso machine to force hot water through finely ground coffee at high pressure to produce a concentrated, flavorful shot.

Cold brew: This method involves steeping coarsely ground coffee in cold water for an extended period of time (usually 12-24 hours) and then filtering out the grounds to produce a smooth, low-acidic brew.

Moka pot: This method involves using a stovetop espresso maker to produce a concentrated, full-bodied brew.
