Is Ground Coffee Better Than Whole Beans?

Used ground coffee is the residual product left after brewing coffee, is the byproduct of hot coffee, and is the by-product that are thrown away or recycled. Used coffee ground is normally discarded and is usually composted or thrown away. However, in the late 20th century, used coffee ground was used to chemically adulterate commercial coffee with a taste that was much like coffee without its roast. This new coffee was called “Kraft Coffee” by its producers.

Today, there are a number of coffee purists who will insist that whole beans are better than pre-ground coffee. They will argue that whole beans contain more robust flavor, contain more natural oils and do not use the water-based process that pre-ground coffee uses. This can be both true and false; depending on how the beans are roasted, whether or not they contain sufficient oils, the amount of water used in brewing, and the method of extraction used. For instance, whole beans may contain more or less beans than the amount of beans used in the brewing process, resulting in a more robust coffee flavor. Similarly, the amount of water used may be greater or lower than the amount used in the process, resulting in a lighter or darker cup of coffee.

 

There are two common methods of coffee brewing: ground or whole. Ground coffee is available anywhere coffee shops are located; however, whole beans are readily available only at specialty shops. It is important when choosing between ground or whole beans that one make their purchase from a trusted supplier that does not use an airtight carafe or one that contains plastic filters. Airtight carafes are expensive, thus they often attract consumers with promises of freshly ground coffee with just a touch of a button.
