Have you ever had a deeper morning ritual than spending caffeinated gold? coffee! Work, marriage, and even having a child before 7 am all beat the hearts of many. Let’s be honest. Dealing with our daily lives without the bliss of a hot, toasted, aromatic liquid is less desirable than hearing the nails dragged across the blackboard in a 10-hour loop.
Think only for drinking coffee. One of the things you can invest more time in is how to prepare it. Coffee has become so essential that we build temples and lights to worship it. Every day, the priests, or take care of their herd, as we call them “baristas”. People from all over the world are eager to get together in these temples, called cafes, to be respectful and full.
When we find the perfect cup, we come back and continue to be in awe of how they achieve a taste-pleasing, rich and velvety taste. Next, we will consider ways to imitate such reassuring results ourselves.
Several elements dance together to deliver good coffee. However, today I will talk about “The Grind”. Accidentally crushing beans can affect the taste of the drink. If it is too natural, the drink can be weak. Too fine, it can be bitter and ruin a small opportunity to start the day with positive notes. And we rely on a good coffee grinder to deliver the maroon granules that are very sacred to us.
But what if there is no factory? Are there common alternatives in everyday homes? Can I grind coffee beans with a food processor?
The answer is “yes”. Most food processors can be used to grind coffee beans. Even better, the smaller the option, the easier it is to save. And if you need to take it to work with you; it’s convenient to carry and doesn’t take up too much space in the dining room.
There are some fun benefits to grind your own coffee. Freshly ground beans have a strong aroma, avoiding the old taste associated with aged coffee. In addition, you can control the required density by grinding with a food processor. With a little experimentation, you can determine the right grit for brewing.
Before using the food processor for grinding. Make sure it is appropriate. Most single-blade processors will suffice. One of the important things to remember is that you need a processor with a pulse button. This allows you to flash in short bursts without constantly switching the processor on and off.
Now is the time to rotate those blades. Just add the amount to brew. Example: If you want to make two cups, add 3.5-4 tablespoons of beans. This frees the blade to move and avoids excessive movement. Press the pulse button briefly. A short pulse flashes the coffee, but prevents the coffee from forming on the sides of the processor. Be careful not to mix it too often. Friction may occur and the final taste may change. Portable processors are convenient because they can be shaken lightly when mixing. This allows for smoother mixing. Medium to fine particles are considered a good start (similar to sand). Medium ground coffee is ideal for brewing poreovers, drips and siphons. Coarse grain is suitable for French press and cold brew, and fine grain is suitable for mocha and Turkish pots.
From here you can try a few other factors in your quest for the Holy Grail of Coffee Enlightenment. With clean appliances, fresh, pure water and high-quality coffee beans, you can enjoy espresso, macchiato and cappuccino right away. Soon there may even be your own little temple dedicated to the freshly brewed sky.
