Roasted coffee beans are like little flavor vaults, protecting the tasty oils and nutrients that provide all the great flavor and richness that coffee lovers crave. Grinding fresh coffee preserves all of the flavor and aromas that coffee beans are intended to deliver. It may take a few more minutes to make your coffee in the mornings, but it’ll guarantee better-tasting coffee with more body, flavor, and aromas.
After years of buying pre-ground coffee from the store I decided to try grinding my own coffee, and I can say definitively that I will never go back to using pre-ground coffee. Grinding your own beans right before brewing a batch of coffee delivers a level of fresh aromas and flavor that you just can’t get with pre-ground beans.
