Two of the most common questions I am asked by customers is:
1.) How long does coffee stay fresh for?
2.) Whats the best way to store coffee to preserve freshness?
Well, freshness is entirely subjective really. What one person considers fresh, another might consider stale. Coffee doesn't go bad like Milk or Eggs. It does however get stale from oxygen,
Lets see, Where do i begin? Its been quite a while since my last post. A lot has happened in the past 4 months. The most significant is our house fire. Some of you who were unaware of our fire, have probably been wondering why we were almost impossible to find on the store shelves until 2 or 3 weeks ago... So I am sorry I didn't make it more known, that we had suffered a fire.
I've noticed selling coffee, that a lot of people are really into dark roasts... I wish it was easier to convince people that really good coffee is usually much better roasted light. Dark roasted coffee has that wonderful bold flavor, but its missing all the nuances from the particular origin the coffee came from. As the roast gets darker it tends to get more of a generic roast flavor which is great for hiding imperfections in not-so-great offerings; But if you take extra care to find the best offerings you can for your customers... It almost pains you to roast it dark for them.
