With coffee lovers around the world becoming increasingly interested in the science behind the perfect cup, every second, gram, and degree is important. However, until now, grind size has been mostly arbitrary. A typical coffee grinder uses a numerical dial that can be set within a range of fine, medium, or coarse. But how does one accurately quantify fine, medium, or coarse in a way that is replicable and reliable? Often, coffee recipes employ vague comparisons such as, sugar or sea salt. Not only is sea salt somewhat of an arbitrary size, but grinders cannot ensure a uniform sea salt size. As a result, many companies set out to improve the grinder itself. However, even the best grinders on the market work by shattering the coffee bean into tiny fragments. This results in uneven coffee grinds that are split into an array of Fines (smaller pieces) and Boulders (larger pieces).
The KRUVE Sifter solves the problem of uneven grind size using a tiered sifting system. With two tiers and up to twelve interchangeable sieves, the KRUVE Sifter can provide up to 66 possible coffee grind sizes without any of those Fines or Boulders. No different than cooking your favourite meal – if you have ingredients of multiple sizes, the smaller pieces will be over-cooked or burnt and the larger sized ingredients will be under-cooked or raw. With the KRUVE Sifter, you pour in your coffee grinds, shake, and voila! A perfectly even grind, every time. As company co-founder Mark Vecchiarelli notes, “Many have tried to perfect the grinder, but we perfected the grind.” That is also not to say one does not need a good grinder. In fact, the KRUVE Sifter compliments and even enhances the very best coffee grinder. Also, in many kitchens and coffee shops around the world, the KRUVE Sifter is being used as a handy calibration tool for all grinders, from the inexpensive home brewing models to the more expensive commercial-grade models.
The KRUVE Sifter has been used by several world famous barista champions in numerous international competitions and has even been called “The anchor of my signature drink!” by Canadian champ Benjamin Put.
