Wilfa Uniform Dialing In Guide

Grinding is one the key elements to achieve a great tasting cup of coffee. What setting to choose on your Wilfa Uniform Grinder depends on the type of coffee you are brewing and your taste preference.
The guide below is Wilfa's guidelines for different brewing methods, but you are welcome to experiment with different settings to achieve your preferred taste.

Wilfa Uniform Grind Guide

Setting 2-8 Espresso

Grinding the coffee into smaller, finer pieces actually increases the surface area of the grounds coming into contact with the water. This is perfect for espresso, where pressure is used to extract flavours quickly from the coffee – allowing maximum development in under 30 seconds.

Setting 14-22 Aeropress

With this method time is increased and pressure, while still present is considerably less than a 9-bar espresso machine. As a result, the Wilfa Uniform produces slightly larger grounds of coffee. This means that during the brewing method, the coffee is perfectly sized to release sweetness, a little acidity and minimal bitterness from over-dissolved coffee solids.

Setting 14-38 pour over/filter

This setting has a large range because there are so many different ways to produce a filter coffee. In this brewing method, pressure is replaced with gravity, meaning that as the water flows through the bed of coffee it picks up oils, flavours and coffee solids along the way. A medium-coarse grind-size keeps the flavours balanced and provides enough resistance to prevent the water flowing through too quickly.

Setting 30-38 French press

When using a French press time is increased to account for the decrease in pressure and aid of gravity. The coffee must be ground coarser to allow grounds to be evenly extracted by the water, without the stewing effect and resulting bitterness from too-small grinds.
