If you love brewing your own coffee, you know that grinding beans yourself is an important step to ensuring a perfect cup. But even more important than that is to ensure that your coffee is ground evenly. Uniformly sized grounds are critical to making superb coffee.

And if you suspect your old workhorse isn’t grinding like it used to, you’re in luck. These steps will confirm that too.
