If roasting coffee beans is an art, then turning them into perfect ground coffee is a science.
If the grind is too coarse, the coffee will brew too slowly, and the flavours will not fully develop. If it's too fine, the coffee will lack aroma and tend towards bitterness. Too much grinding is as bad as too little, for perfect coffee only 'just right' will do.
Different coffee machines work best with different grind sizes, so what works well in a cafetiere will produce dreadful coffee in an espresso machine.
Coffee can be ground with either a blade (chopped) or a burr (crushed). Blade grinders chop and re-chop each bean turning them into thousands of coffee fragments. The longer you chop the finer the blend becomes.
