Coffee Vocabulary Lesson #5

ground coffee:

  • coffee that is ready to be brewed
  • the product after grinding roasted coffee beans
  • can be found in a variety of forms as grind size determines how fine or coarse the grounds will be
  • do not confuse with coffee grounds

It was not until I had to sit down and read, research, and think about coffee vocabulary that I realized before and after had their own terms–ground coffee (before) and coffee grounds (after). Funny how these connections came about–I love what this coffee blog is providing me!

  • my best friend (meme)
  • beautiful (me . . . and a whole lot of other people I imagine)
