On the Grind
In coffee, a great grind is essential.

That said, we've heard from so many people that their best investments in coffee have been grinder upgrades, as opposed to fancier brewing equipment.
For me personally, I'd rather have a great grinder and zero brewing equipment than a super fancy brewer and a bad grinder.
All of that said, if you're new to fresh whole bean coffee, using a blender is a great way to open your taste buds. Work sharp simplifies.
