Do you grind out stale grounds before before dosing your portafilter? You know; run the grinder for a couple seconds to push out any grounds that were retained from last time and then just throw them away.
It’s something I often do and depending on the grinder you're using and how you use it, it may be the only way to be certain you’re getting a completely fresh dose.
So I have seven well know grinders here and I tested each to see how much ground coffee it retains after grinding. I’ll have detailed results of my tests in a minute - there were a couple of surprises, so be sure and stick around for that. I’ll also have some usage tips and opinions, and things I picked up when working with the seven grinders side by side for a day.
We have quite a few people here who enjoy a good French Press, so Mitch and Jesse, our Product Specialists/Self-Proclaimed Coffee Nerds, set out to test different ratios to see if we could find one we prefer most here at Whole Latte Love.
My job allows me to play around with some pretty cool stuff, but today I had the opportunity to test out something awesome. If you haven’t already heard of the ROK espresso maker, let me tell you a little bit about it. It's a manual espresso machine from Presso, Ltd. and it’s making waves at the London Coffee Festival. Needless to say, I was stoked. So, I grabbed some coffee, our hot water kettle, and a few volunteers, and we went to town.
