Coffee making process starts with amazing freshly ground coffee. So, first you need to prep your coffee beans for grinding purpose. Roast your coffee beans for 15 minutes, either on a pan or in a coffee roaster. Take the beans out after you hear the second crack, and leave them for cooling purpose.
Now, get your coffee grinder ready for grinding. If you’re using a coffee blender, set it up for grinding mode. It is very crucial for the coffee grinder, or coffee blender to be of an excellent quality. So, just put in the coffee beans. Depending on your choice, you could grind it either coarsely or finely.
It is recommended that you don’t store the ground coffee for too long, else it will lose its taste and aroma. The best thing to do is roast the beans and store it, and whenever you’re in need, grind them fresh.
