We have recently adjusted our grind options. With that in mind, we wanted to offer this primer so that you can choose the best grind-style for your preferred brewing method.

Whole Bean-- While we are happy to grind your beans, your coffee will stay fresher longer if you grind it as you go. There are many great home grinder options out there and many are surprisingly inexpensive.

Drip-- This is a medium grind that is the most versatile. Brewing methods using drip include home coffee drip machines, pour-overs (like Hario), Chemex, and AeroPress.

Espresso-- This grind is generally used for espresso makers. This includes home machines and stove-tip espresso pots. The grind is the most fine and is optimized to work with a high pressure extraction system.

Coarse-- Coarse is for percolators, french press, cold brewing, and sometimes AeroPress. Coarse is the biggest/loosest grind and enables water to move more freely steeping coffee for extraction.

All of the above, while generally true in the industry, also should be adjusted for preference. Feel free to experiment and please contact us if you have questions and we will be happy to work with you.

Rich, smoky, dark, bold blend of smooth caramel-chocolaty Indonesian and sweet, fruity Ethiopian beans presented in a French Roast - not for the timid. If you need to burn the Midnight Oil,

Available in a variety of grind options.

EYES WIDE OPEN

Great cup of liquid gold!! Ron

Its like delicious jet fuel

A truly delicious dark roast with a heck of a flavor kick. One of the best coffees I have ever had and absolutely wonderful regardless of preparation method. 10/10 my favorite non-cold-brew coffee Emily

Midnight OIl Rocks

This is by far the best dark roast coffee we have ever had. We only buy this now and have it shipped across the country because it really is superior to all others. We use a French press and have it ground by Sweetwater and it turns out just perfect. Smooth, rich, tasty. Ann
