Grind Types Chart
The freshest and most preferred method for those who have a grinder at home.
Coarse (French Press)
This grind size is what you need to make a mean french press or a smooth well extracted cold brew.
If you are brewing that Mayorga magic on a Chemex this is the grind size for you. This grind is also great for units with metal filters.
If you are brewing on any home brewer or a flat bottom pourover system (Kalita Wave) this is the grind size that was made for you.
This is our favorite size grind for anyone using a cone pourover system with a paper filter (Hario v60, Melitta, Clever, Beehouse). Our baristas call this one, "the sweet spot."
If you are using a vacuum pot, siphon or refillable k-cup pod you want this grind size for optimal brewing.
This grind is suitable for home and commercial espresso machines and stove top espresso, like a moka pot.

The Capucas Cooperative is arguably one of the most progressive organic coffee cooperatives in the world. Their leadership has been almost obsessive about protecting the environment and focusing on growing the best quality coffee--and complimentary crops--that they possibly can. This quality is reflected in every cup of coffee and noticeable as you drive through the community and see the carefully manicured and meticulously managed organic farms. We're proud to have a relationship with Capucas that goes back many years.
