BEANS to BAGS

-   BREWING TIPS  -

The Beans

  • Freshly roasted coffee beans create the best flavor 2 weeks after they are roasted.  Purchase the right amount of coffee based on your consumption.

  • If you are puchasing whole beans, grind only the amount being used and follow the industry recommendation on grind size based on the different types of brewing methods.

  • Burr grinder is the preferred choice over blade grinder in the coffee industry because it provides more uniform grinds.

 

Storage

  • To preserve the freshness of your coffee beans, store them in an airtight container at room temperature.

  • If you cannot consumed within the recommended time period (2 weeks), coffee can be stored in freezer using an airtight container - make sure that it is a true airtight container to prevent freezer burn.  It is not recommended by experts to store coffee in the refrigerator because coffee absorbs moistures, ordors, and tastes.  

 

Brewing Method

  • For lighter coffee, use 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces of water.

  • For stronger coffee, the coffee industry recommends 2 tablespoons per 6 ounces of water.
