Medium particles and looks and feels like beach sand. This is the right grind for brewing in an automatic drip brewer with a flat bottom filter. A good choice but you may have to experiment a little with different grinds if you use an electric maker as that is the only way to control the extraction.

Drip brew is a method for brewing coffee which involves pouring water over coffee contained in a filter. Water seeps through the coffee, absorbing its oils and essences, solely under gravity then passes through the bottom of the filter. The used coffee grounds are retained in the filter with the liquid falling (dripping) into a collecting vessel such as a carafe or pot.

Paper filters are commonly used for drip brew all over the world. One benefit of paper filters is that the used grounds and the filter may be disposed of together, without a need to clean the filter. However, metal filters are also common, es- pecially in India or in home brewers. These are made of thin perforated metal sheets that restrain the grounds but allow the coffee to pass. Brewing with a paper filter produces clear, light-bodied coffee, which is free of sediments, but lacking in some of coffee's oils and essences, which are trapped in the paper filter.
