QUESTIONS ABOUT COFFEE

What are your different grind options?

Coarse is the largest grind size that we have. It is great for french press and cold brew coffees.

Medium Coarse is in between coarse and the standard grind that you see in ground coffee at grocery stores. This can be used for pour-over and drip coffees.

Standard is what you typically see when you buy ground coffee from the grocery store. The pieces are small, and this grind is best used for pour-over and drip coffees.

Fine is one step above the standard grind. This is best used for Pour-Over Cones, Vacuum Pots, and Siphon Brewers.

Espresso is the smallest we offer. This grind is used mostly for espresso coffees and stovetop Espresso / Moka Pot.

How much coffee should I use in my coffee maker?

We recommend starting with about 1 to 1.5 tablespoons per cup. If you like your coffee with stronger flavor, use 2 tablespoons (adjust to taste as always). Because our coffee is very fresh and offers bold flavor, you probably do not need 2 tablespoons for 6 ounces of water.

How is your coffee any better than store-bought coffee?

Store-bought coffee is often 3 weeks to 2 months old before you get it. Ours is roasted the same week you order and is quite possibly the freshest coffee you have ever had! Don't be fooled by those coffee shops on every corner either — that coffee is rarely less than 3 weeks old before you buy that morning cup.

How long is coffee good for? Does coffee expire?

All coffee should be stored long term between 50 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit, at about 30 to 50 percent humidity. Roasted coffee beans, as well as ground coffee, should be kept in an airtight container. You can store roasted coffees without much flavor loss for about a year unopened, or 2 years in the freezer. Coffee is still good past these dates if kept properly, but flavor fades away quickly over time. Once you open roasted beans or ground coffee, you should plan to use it up within a week for the best flavor. This is why it is always best to buy smaller amounts more frequently.

How can I tell if coffee is bad?

The best way to tell if coffee has gone bad is to use your sense of smell. If coffee has gone bad, the pleasant aroma will be gone and with it much of the taste. Using this coffee will not harm you but will just not have much flavor if the smell is gone. It may also lose its deep, dark color and appear a lighter brown.

How should I store coffee beans to extend their shelf life?

Coffee does degrade over time, and it degrades faster depending on the surface area — which means that whole beans will keep longer than ground coffee. The best way to store these beans is to place them in an airtight container, and only freshly grind the amount you plan to use that day to avoid unnecessary exposure. Storing coffee in this way will keep out moisture and other contaminants.
