Coffee starts to lose approximately 40% of its essential oils and aroma under 15 minutes after grinding. Through the grinding process, about 1000 various aromas and flavors contained in a coffee bean are exposed and start to escape once the seal has been destroyed. Hence brewing immediately after grinding is the only way to ensure you get a good number of these aromas into your cup. Give it another 24 hours, and your coffee will have a different taste. That is why it is essential not to store coffee after it is ground and only grind the quantity you need just before brewing.
Besides being free of electricity, the manual burr coffee grinder offers several advantages over the traditional electric grinder; the manual coffee grinder doesn’t shred the beans roughly like the electric grinder, usually leaving lumpy and coarse fragments in our grind. Also, manual grinding doesn’t get the beans hot and hence does not have any adverse effect on flavor. They also have longer shelf-lives compared to the electric ground ones because of their simple design and high-grade ceramic components. It allows you to grind just the quantity you need for the moment rather than grinding a large number of beans you don’t need immediately. The hand-grinding process is so quiet and helps you avoid the loud cringing sounds made by electric grinders.
