If you are purchasing a bag of whole bean coffee on our website, you can select your grind method of choice (at no extra charge!) from the dropdown and we will grind and ship it to you. We grind the beans freshly for you at our warehouse in ECS Coffee Burlington right before your order is shipped, and reseal the package to maintain optimal freshness in transit.

If you are visiting us in store, you can also request for your beans to be ground in store before you take them home.

We use a commercial BUNN Burr Grinder to grind the beans.

Please note: Freshly ground coffee is non-refundable and not returnable. To ensure that you receive a ground coffee that is consistent with your brew method of choice, refer to our Grind Chart below! 


For use with espresso machines. Fine coffee grinds will have the size and feel of sand.


Choose a medium fine grind if you are brewing with a Moka Pot, stovetop espresso brewers or an Aeropress.


Cone Filter - We use two medium settings depending on your brewer. The Cone Filter medium setting is a bit finer, and is suitable for pour-over drip brewers (cone style) such as Hario, Melitta, Clever. It is also used for cone style automatic brewers.

Flat Bottom Filter - This setting is suitable for coffee machines with a flat bottom basket filter, such as commercial automatic drip machines. It is also an appropriate setting for if you have a refillable coffee capsule for use in Keurig® machines. Medium coffee grinds will be around the same size as sea salt.


If you are brewing with a percolator, the grind setting is a bit coarser than your standard medium grind, to minimize grinds making it through the filter. We use a percolator-specific setting on our grinder.


 Vaccuum brewers, Chemex. 


For french press, cold brew coffee. A coarse grind is very chunky in look, like crushed peppercorns.

Remember that this coffee grind chart is a guideline! If you use a coffee brewing method that is not listed here, feel free to reach out and we will let you know which grind is the best for your brewer.

I was hoping that this coffee was going to be a deeper and smoother finish than I experienced. It had too much of a tangy taste for my liking. It is decent enough to drink but I would search for other beans rather than buy these again.

Not so sure

Mostly likely (my) human error, but far too muddy & dark for my liking. Will return to lighter roasts for aero press. Probably suits espresso based drinks far better

Full-Flavoured but very approachable

This has become my go-to dark roast. I brew it in a French press and usually drink it black - there are no acrid too bitter flavours. I’m personally not a fan of coffees that have a slight tart/acidic taste (I think they call it “bright”), and this one is low on that brightness scale, which is perfect for me. It has hints of something toasty and sweet and has an overall balanced flavour to me (noting the lack of tartness, which I do prefer). The roasting date varies a bit, so I’ve had some batches that were fresher than other times, but overall the freshness is quite good.


Nice clean dark roast

I tasted this at a cafe last year in the before-time and have been buying it since, tastes great with both the french press and regular brewer. I recommend.
