New to coffee? We all have to start somewhere, and ground coffee is probably the best place.
After all, we’ve all seen brewed coffee, but ground coffee a bit less. Or, you might just find you you’ve always been looking at it, and didn’t know it.
So what is ground coffee ?
Ground coffee is what brewed coffee is made of. It’s made up of ground coffee beans, much like flour is made of wheat and maize is made of corn.
You use ground coffee like you would use a tea bag: add hot water to it, let it steep for a few minutes, then strain and drink. The resulting brew is what we all know as coffee.
Ground coffee comes in several sizes, depending on what kind of coffee you’re planning to make. We’ll get tot hat in a bit.
Until then though, we need to stress that ground coffee is not instant coffee. It looks very similar, and they might even smell the same. But there is a big difference, and trying to make an espresso with instant coffee instead of ground coffee will be a failure.
