I’ve been a Nabob fan for a long time, in terms of the pre-ground coffee, it had the best flavour and I’ve been through many different varieties at home and at work. I don’t think there is much that comes close (of what is available in the local grocery store) to Nabob fine grind coffee. However, the other week I was looking at grinding my own coffee, we already had a grinder, had to get one because someone, sometime got us some whole beans – I forget exactly why.. anyways, we have a grinder already. So, I figured, grinding my own should be much fresher and tastier in theory, plus, if I’m doing the grinding, it should be a cheaper way to buy coffee too?
So I bought a big bag of whole beans, I forget what kind, not important, and it does turn out to be 1/3rd of the cost I think, I need to check again. Anyways, for less money, I can be snobby and grind my own stash – this looks good for visitors, they think ‘wow, must be good coffee if hes grinding it himself’ :P. So its cheaper, fresher, and just plain fun to do.
You should check it out too. Here are the pros:
- saves on packaging
- ends up being cheaper
- You get the fun of grinding yourself
- the fresh ground aroma is great
- you get a more fresh tasting brew
- you can grind as needed according to how you’ll be brewing, ie, do you use a french press for yourself, and maybe a drip type when company is over?
- Beans stay fresher for longer because they are whole – saving much of those aromatic and tasty oils
Does it make sense for you? Any reason why you do or do not grind?
