If you’re buying bags of pre-ground coffee, consider starting with fresh, whole beans. Coffee begins to lose freshness almost immediately after roasting! Coffee beans will usually have a roast date on it - this will tell you how fresh it is. Coffee beans, like most foods, will oxidize over time which changes the flavor profile of the bean. In fact, it reaches its peak flavor a few days after it’s been roasted. So it’s ideal to buy freshly roasted coffee from local coffee shops in smaller batches more often - enough for 1-2 weeks at a time. The more fresh your coffee, the better the aroma and flavor!
The smell and taste of great coffee can be one key ingredient to a productive day. We bet you could never resist the charm of cold brew on a sunny morning. Without a doubt, the uniqueness of your coffee brew comes down to your choice of beans. We also recommend that you find the best coffee grinder for your brewing style.
Parp… we think someone’s got gas! It’s your coffee beans, giving off a little gas after their roast! This process lasts for a few days, which means super fresh, just-out-the-roaster coffee isn’t great to brew with. Wait… so fresh isn’t best? Maybe not…
