What kind of (coffee) grind should I use?

For the freshest tasting coffee, Pooki's Mahi recommends starting with whole beans and grinding them fresh for each pot.  Espresso machines are grind-sensitive and require a very fine grind that is best achieved with a burr grinder.  Coffee presses require a coarse grind, as the coffee is in contact with water for a longer brewing time (3-4 minutes).  Drip coffee makers perform best with either universal grind that is available in pre-ground coffees or with a grind specifically for a flat bottom or cone type filter.
