Grind Guide 

Every grinder is different, this guide will not necessarily give you the best results for you specific grinder. This is a comparative scale intended to help you discover the difference in grind settings for different methods and ultimately the best grind on your grinder. It works on a 1 to 10 scale, if you grinder has 10 grind settings and grinds from turkish (1) to french press (10) then you can simply use the guide recommendation and adjust to taste. If your grinder has 30 grind settings then you should multiply the recommended grind setting by three. For example if you are brewing flat bottom filter coffee (7) you should start with a grind setting of 21 on your grinder with 30 settings. 

1 finest to 10 coarsest 

1 Turkish

2 Espresso 

3 Moka Pot

4 Aero Press 

5 Hario 

6 Kalita, Cone Electric Drip

 7 Flat Bottom Electric Drip 

8 Chemex

9 Cold Brew, Toddy 

10 French Press

Adjusting Grind to Taste

After brewing, taste your coffee, if it is delicious, great news, enjoy! If it is lacking in some way, then adjusting your grind can be a great way to improve your brew. 

If you find your coffee to be flat, lifeless and have ashy or dry aftertaste you are probably grinding too fine and should adjust your grind coarser.  

If you find your coffee to be sour, papery or watery you are probably grinding too coarse and should adjust your grind finer.
