How to Choose a Ground Coffee in the UK – Buying Guide

Key Points to Consider

  1. If You're Looking for a Complex Cup, Opt for Arabica Beans
  2. Compare Flavour Profiles by Looking at Region and Processing Method
  3. Blends Offer a Mixture of Flavours While Single Origins are more Distinct
  4. Think About Whether You’d Prefer a Lighter, Subtler Roast or an Intense, Darker Roast
  5. Make Sure to Check the Grind is Suitable for How You're Preparing Your Coffee

1. Arabica Beans Have More Time to Develop and Give You a More Complex Experience but You’ll Find Robusta Is More Common in Blends

1. Arabica Beans Have More Time to Develop and Give You a More Complex Experience but You’ll Find Robusta Is More Common in Blends

Arabica coffee has a sweet, soft taste with complex tones of sugar, fruits and berries, which is one of the reasons why it is often the only type used in the speciality coffee industry. The acidity in Arabica beans is higher than that of Robusta beans, and also has a winey mouthfeel synonymous with top-quality coffee. 


Robusta, on the other hand, is the more hardy bean, with a stronger, more bitter, and somewhat harsher taste that some find not as palatable. It is characterised by grainy overtones and a peanutty aftertaste and produces a strong crema. 


Although Arabica is known for being easier to drink and generally the superior bean, Robusta is commonly used in coffee blends throughout the world, mostly because it is cheaper to produce – which will usually make it cheaper for you as the consumer.

Generally, Robusta is of poorer quality as it's grown at lower altitudes which means that they mature faster and don't have as much time as Arabica beans to develop more unique flavours. So you are more likely to find Arabica beans in a good specialty coffee shop.

2. When Choosing Your Coffee, Consider Your Preferred Flavour Profiles by Looking at Region and Processing Method

2. When Choosing Your Coffee, Consider Your Preferred Flavour Profiles by Looking at Region and Processing Method

Opt For Ethiopian Coffees if You Like to Experience Different Flavours From One Region Ranging From the Wine-Like Heavy Bodied to the Mild and Floral

The coffee plant has its origins in Ethiopia, where there are three main coffee growing regions: Harrar, Ghimbi, and Sidamo (Yirgacheffe). Harrar coffee beans are dry-processed and are often used in espresso blends due to their rich, winey aroma and heavy body. 


Conversely, Yirgacheffe and Ghimbi coffees have been wet-processed, or 'washed', which results in a cleaner, brighter flavour. Yirgacheffe is grown at high altitudes from 1,700 to 2,200 meters above sea level and is the most favoured coffee from South Ethiopia. Mild and light with a floral aroma, it's perfect for an afternoon filter coffee or cafetière.

I love Ethiopian coffees, especially if they are good quality, and roasted expertly and not too dark. Each process lends to different flavours; one of my favourite processes is a "natural" process where the whole coffee cherry is sun-dried and ferments in the fruit and skin of the cherry. It means when it breaks down it has all the lovely sugars to add flavour to the coffee bean. 


My favourite way to drink a coffee like this is as a pourover or filter coffee!

Kenyan Coffee Has a Rich Flavour With Vibrant Complex Notes, Whereas Rwandan Coffee Has a More Silky, Buttery Texture

The Kenyan coffee industry is known for its cooperative system of production, with around 70% of its beans being produced by small scale holders. Rwandan beans are also known for their small scale grinds, so if this is something you look for when buying coffee, Kenyan and Rwandan varieties are the way to go. 


Known for its consistently rich flavour and wine-like acidity, Kenyan coffee is considered top class and has a distinctly bright, vibrant taste with complex fruit and berry notes. 


Floral, berry and fruit tastes are also present in Rwandan coffee, but it boasts more of a silky texture, a creamier body and slightly buttery overtones, with hints of cinnamon and caramelised sugar. Acidity-wise, it's also high and bright like Kenyan coffee, due to their similar altitudes and growing climate.

Buying coffee from small-scale farmers or micro-lots can be interesting because it means that they can pay more attention to the limited crop and often results in good quality coffees. 


Sometimes the farms are too small to sell on their own so cooperatives are great because it means the farmers can group together a larger quantity of high-quality yield to sell which means they still get good prices and also get to carry on with their good farming practices.

If You Enjoy More Chocolatey Flavours or the Sweetness of Caramel, Go for South American Coffees From Brazil or Columbia

Brazil is the world's largest coffee producer, producing a third of the world's coffee, and has been for the last 150 years. Brazilian coffee is soft and nutty with low acidity and a bittersweet chocolatey taste that makes it perfect for espresso lovers.


Colombian coffee is also extremely popular and a good place to start when buying a ground coffee, due to its classic profile of a strong caramel sweetness and a nutty undertone alongside a mellow acidity. Many other South American countries also produce top quality coffee and are worth trying if these flavours tempt you, such as Ecuador, Guatemala and Peru.

You will often find Brazillian and/or Columbian coffees in espresso blends because they provide a really good base. They offer slightly heavier, rich and chocolatey notes that can be added to other coffees from other origins that have contrasting characteristics. Though one of my favourite coffees of all time I have had from South America was a Guatemalan Atitlan bean from a tiny micro-lot.

3. Choose Single-Origin if You Want to Appreciate the Distinct Flavours of One Region, but Blends Give You a More Complex Experience

3. Choose Single-Origin if You Want to Appreciate the Distinct Flavours of One Region, but Blends Give You a More Complex Experience

When it comes to choosing between single-origin and blended ground coffee, it isn't necessarily a matter of one being superior – they both have their draws, and both will appeal to different tastes. Single-origin beans come from one specific region or estate and are loved by coffee connoisseurs for their unique and distinct qualities. Single origins are a great way to immerse yourself in the tastes of a region you like.


Blends, however, combine beans from several origins, and when done well, will offer up the best of each bean and generally a more complex coffee. Skillfully pairing beans that complement each other can be akin to creating a delicious, signature dish.

These days more cafes are using single-origins for espresso than they used to, and there are a few reasons for this. One being that coffee bean quality is generally higher, as are roasters skills and equipment. Though it is still very common to have blends for espresso than it is for filter coffees. 


Espresso coffee requires higher pressure, higher temperatures, and faster extraction. I personally love a good espresso blend. There's so much scope to mixing different flavours and characteristics together which I think can give an espresso a different journey when drinking. Though, a single-origin coffee can give a really consistent, clean drop.

4. Think About the Flavours You Enjoy Before Choosing the Roast That Ranges From the Light and Vibrant to the Deep, Nutty Notes of Dark Roasts

4. Think About the Flavours You Enjoy Before Choosing the Roast That Ranges From the Light and Vibrant to the Deep, Nutty Notes of Dark Roasts

Ground coffee quality is constantly getting higher with the demand for a world-class taste, and lighter to medium roasts are now getting their time in the limelight. Most coffee drinkers have a favourite, but we'll list their characteristics below to lend a hand with your choice. 


  • Light roast: usually has a crisp acidity, mellow body and vibrant flavours, preserving the characteristics of the bean. 
  • Medium roast: has medium acidity and body with a well-rounded flavour and the beginnings of a rich, caramel sweetness. 
  • Dark roasts: are characterised by a heavy body, with deeper flavours and nutty or chocolatey notes.

Isn't it wonderful that there are so many choices within coffee to suit our tastes? Many of us are used to slightly darker roasts because, in the past, that's often what has been more widely available. But now there's been a trend toward lighter roasted coffees and this has offered new and different flavours.


If a roast is too dark, sometimes it can mask the underlying flavour characteristics of the bean. I often liken it to cooking meat. Sometimes you want to cook it slowly so that it's soft, moist and sweet, and others you might want to flash cook for a different texture and so the flavour is locked in. Either way, different coffees lend better to different roast profiles, but ultimately drinking one profile of coffee over another is up to your own preference!

5. Those Who Use French Press Should Go for Course Grinds Whereas Pour-Over and AeroPress Users Require a Medium/Medium-Coarse Grind

5. Those Who Use French Press Should Go for Course Grinds Whereas Pour-Over and AeroPress Users Require a Medium/Medium-Coarse Grind

To get the most out of your cup, it's important that the grind of your coffee is suitable for your preferred brewing method. Each packet should mention whether it is fine, medium, or coarse, or, to take the guesswork out, will helpfully note exactly which coffee gadgets it can be used with. 


The most common method is the cafetière, or the French press, which is best used with a coarse grind to avoid over-extraction. Filter machines and percolators are in the same family of 'slow-brewing' methods, so also suit coarser grinds. 


Medium or medium-coarse grinds should be chosen if you favour pour-over coffee, siphon coffee and AeroPress coffee. Lastly, go for a fine grind for espresso and stovetop Moka pots. A lot of everyday ground coffees do create a 'one grind fits all' consistency, but if you're serious about your Joe you may like to stay a bit more precise. 


While you're here, take a look at our french press coffee makers too!

A good grind is probably one of the most important factors that can affect the taste and quality of your coffee. I suggest that if you are interested in seeing the difference for yourself, try one recipe using the same brew method, water, dose of coffee, extraction time etc three times, but each time only change the grind size (fine, medium, or coarse) and see what happens. 


You might find that a finer grind gives you a stronger flavour, or a coarse grind is sweeter. Coffee beans last longer if you grind as you go. So investing in a decent grinder might be more important than the equipment you use to brew on. Though if you are going through your coffee relatively quickly (1-2 weeks for a small bag), then getting it pre-ground is totally fine!

Celeste's Tips on Storing Your Ground Coffee

Celeste's Tips on Storing Your Ground Coffee

"I generally advise people to treat coffee similar to potatoes. Store them in a dark, dry place. It's best they are kept in a container or the bag they come in to stop oxygen and moisture from getting in. The bags usually have a valve that releases the CO2 that is constantly released as the beans age."
