Grind:

The coffee equivalent of a big, full-bodied Cabernet, Empire is as bold as the famous Corsican empire-builder that inspired the label. While this coffee is what is known in North America as a French roast, it's much darker than a traditional French coffee.


The coffee is roasted to the point that the beans reach a deep, dark brown color and aromatic oils coat the surface of the beans. Roasting beyond the second crack to develop this color brings out bittersweet, smoky notes in the beans and mutes the brighter, winy notes. All the coffees used in our Empire blend were selected to contribute to its full body and dark cocoa flavors. These beans are hand-picked from high-altitude Rainforest Alliance Certified farms in Latin America. To highlight the robust character of Empire, we suggest using a French Press as the ideal brew method, though it works well in an auto-drip brewer for larger groups.

Whole Bean Grind Chart

If you are purchasing a bag of whole bean coffee on our website, you can select your grind method of choice (at no extra charge!) from the dropdown and we will grind and ship it to you. We grind the beans freshly for you at our warehouse in ECS Coffee Burlington right before your order is shipped, and reseal the package to maintain optimal freshness in transit.

If you are visiting us in store, you can also request for your beans to be ground in store before you take them home.

We use a commercial BUNN Burr Grinder to grind the beans.

Please note: Freshly ground coffee is non-refundable and not returnable. To ensure that you receive a ground coffee that is consistent with your brew method of choice, refer to our Grind Chart below! 

FINE

For use with espresso machines. Fine coffee grinds will have the size and feel of sand.

MEDIUM FINE

Choose a medium fine grind if you are brewing with a Moka Pot, stovetop espresso brewers or an Aeropress.

MEDIUM

Cone Filter - We use two medium settings depending on your brewer. The Cone Filter medium setting is a bit finer, and is suitable for pour-over drip brewers (cone style) such as Hario, Melitta, Clever. It is also used for cone style automatic brewers.

Flat Bottom Filter - This setting is suitable for coffee machines with a flat bottom basket filter, such as commercial automatic drip machines. It is also an appropriate setting for if you have a refillable coffee capsule for use in Keurig® machines. Medium coffee grinds will be around the same size as sea salt.

PERCOLATOR

If you are brewing with a percolator, the grind setting is a bit coarser than your standard medium grind, to minimize grinds making it through the filter. We use a percolator-specific setting on our grinder.

MEDIUM COARSE

 Vaccuum brewers, Chemex. 

COARSE

For french press, cold brew coffee. A coarse grind is very chunky in look, like crushed peppercorns.

Remember that this coffee grind chart is a guideline! If you use a coffee brewing method that is not listed here, feel free to reach out and we will let you know which grind is the best for your brewer.
