So, since we’ve gotten so many questions about “why whole beans only” and “well what grinder do you recommend” we figured we’d write a blog…so here it goes, all the reasons for grinding your own beans and the tools to do it...by Clay Snyder.
Grinding your coffee as close to the time when you brew it is a simple way to improve any cup of coffee. The main reason for doing this is to preserve the many flavorful oils and other compounds that are released when grinding. These are not preserved with pre-ground coffee that has been sitting on a shelf for even a short amount of time. Another important reason is for consistency. A more consistent grind allows for better quality.
So excited to welcome a bandana company to our very small line-up of vendors. Stumbling upon them, I knew they were the perfect fit for North Fork Moto – as riders (and as COVID fighters) we all need as many rad bandanas as we can get. Unfortunately the market seems limited - with COVID and more people making bandanas part of their wardrobe, good ones are hard to find. Well, we scored with Bandit Bandanas – they are all beautiful, unique designs and for every bandana sold, they donate 10% to the charity of the artist’s choosing.
