I recently discovered the French Press which I知 loving the coffee that it produces.

Now I知 thinking I need a grinder so that I will have more coffee brand options for coarse ground coffee if I grind my own.

My question is, if I own a grinder, is it better to grind what I知 going to drink daily or just grind a full package of coffee beans?

Daily is fresher. Better flavor.

Less time for the grounded-up coffee to sit the better, imo.

I grind enough for 3-4 days and put the grounds (grinded) in an airtight container.

There is that saying: "coffee does not like air."

More important is getting the right grinder. Absolutely stay away from blade grinders. They will scorch the beans. You need a burr grinder. Here's where it gets a little tricky. There are two types...wheel (or flat) burr and conical burr. The best one is the conical burr, so make sure somewhere in the description it states that it is a conical burr grinder. If it doesn't say anywhere, it's probably a wheel/flat burr.

Small amounts. Daily or weekly. Store in an airtight jar in a dark place.
I roast beans on a stainless steel pan before grinding. Refresh the taste...

We grind every day, for that day’s coffee. If you grind a pound of beans at the store, what is the point of buying beans?

This Vietnamese shop makes the most amazing french press coffee. So I watched this lady make coffee and she uses a cheap $10 grinder, she dumps the grind out and put it in a peculator coffee pot. Tastes amazing, bold and so flavorful. Didn't matter she used the cheap grinder but it worked. I guess the key is the right grind and she uses a metal peculator espresso kettle instead of some fancy espresso maker.
