What exactly is single dosing?
Single dosing has taken the coffee world by storm in recent years so its no wonder single dosing coffee grinders have become some of the most sought after on the market today.
A technique that is truly as simple as it sounds. Leaving your bean hopper empty and only placing the exact amount of beans in before each grind to be ground into your portafilter, typically done by weighing your beans beforehand.
Why a single dosing coffee grinder?
So you are probably asking yourself - what's the benefit to a SD grinder?
One of the most important aspects to creating café-quality espresso is the freshness of your coffee beans. It doesn't matter how expensive or fancy your grinder is, if you're using stale beans, your coffee will reflect such.
Being able to single dose allows you to store your coffee beans in an air-tight container keeping them fresher for longer periods of time instead of storing them in your grinder's bean hopper.
