Good advice: The best way to enjoy every coffee is to grind it properly. Ethiopian coffee requires medium-fine grinding, on a scale of 1 to 10 (1 finest, 10 coarsest) about grade 3-4, depending on the type of grinder and its wear. In espresso machines, we recommend setting the grinder to the finest grind and only if the coffee flows slowly use a coarser grind. It is best to enjoy freshly roasted coffee beans – preferably 2 weeks to two months after roasting (depending on the storage of raw and roasted coffee, when storing raw coffee in a vacuum from the farm to the roaster and proper packaging after roasting, even roasted coffee can maintain freshness for several months).
