Coffee is ground prior to brewing.

Before coffee is brewed, it must be ground to facilitate the transfer of flavor. The size of the grind will strongly affect the results. Typically, coffee is sold whole, since ground coffee deteriorates faster than whole bean coffee. Certain types of coffee, however, such as flavored coffee, must be ground prior to sale due to the way they are manufactured.
