Whilst our 227g and 1kg bags of beans are both available as whole beans, we currently only offer ground beans in our 227g bags to help you maintain freshness and the perfect cup of coffee. Our ground coffee is a general - purpose grind, which is suitable for all styles of filter coffee, (e.g. cafetiere, drip, V60, Aeropress), but for best results we don't advise using it in espresso machines.
Everyone’s tastes are different so play around with your recipes to find what suits you best but here is a great starting point:
Espresso: 1:2 ratio of coffee to water
V60: 16g coffee to 240g water
Aeropress: 16g coffee to 240g water
Chemex: 32g coffee to 500g water
French Press: 60 - 65g coffee to 1 litre water
