Storing Coffee Always Worth Revisiting

A good thing to remember and be reminded of is the proper way to store fresh roasted coffee beans. First off it is best to purchase fresh roasted coffee beans in small quantities. The quality of roasted coffee beans breaks down quickly becoming stale and less palatable. When ordering fresh roasted coffee beans only order enough for approximately 3 to 4 weeks of brewing. This seems to be a good amount to keep on hand. 5 pounds seems to be a good ordering amount for most coffee drinkers.

To store your daily supply of coffee it is important to store your coffee in air tight containers that are kept out of the light. After all it is air and light that destroys the flavor and quality of coffee most quickly. Store your newly purchased fresh roasted coffee beans in an airtight container. An air tight coffee canister that light can not penetrate is a great investment. Glass jars work well too.  A Mason style jar with sealing lid is an excellent container as long as you keep the jar tightly sealed and stored in a dark place. Always keep the containers out of heat and direct light. Remember that refrigerating or freezing your fresh roasted coffee beans will destroy the freshness too. The moisture in the cold air will deteriorate your fresh roasted coffee beans quickly. Continue Reading

It’s A Matter Of Habit

coffeeIt is a matter of habit, a mind-set about the routines we follow in our lives. Habits are the way in which we run our lives. We get up in the morning grind our coffee, make a pot, do our toiletries, shower, shave, drink our coffee, and head out the door for work. We shop in the same manner. People tend to go to the same stores to shop. They even follow the same flow through the aisle they buy from. They pick up familiar items that they like, filling their basket. This is the habit of food and drink. We do not always stop and look at what we buy. We do not understand the cycles of manufacturing or the labels of ingredients. We do not always consider the ethical dilemma of the purchase of one brand or type of product over another.

Do you consider the coffee that you drink? Do you consider the brand, where the coffee came from, or the story behind the coffee beans you buy? You probably are like the millions who have the habit of picking up coffee at the grocery store or the corner shop because it is convenient. You recognize the bag. It looks good to you.

I Buy My Fair Trade Coffee Online

I heard from an acquaintance the other day, they live in the UK somewhere. They said that they could buy Fair Trade Coffee at their local coffee shop for less than what fair trade coffee is sold for online. Is this true? I am not sure. From the prices I see in the market place as well as online the prices seem to be very comparable. Maybe it is possible to find fair trade and organic coffee at a local shop for a cheaper price. Then again maybe not.

Here in the United States this is not always the case. Sometimes it is just the appearance of less cost. There is so much that goes into the true cost of a cup of coffee. Of course the retail price of the roasted beans is the big “in your face” aspect. Retail price is what most of us look at and stop at when considering price. However, one must consider the cost of getting to the store in which you purchase your coffee. With the cost of gasoline today if you drive there is added cost. If you are buying your bag of coffee while doing your general shopping then the price of fuel may not be considered. Continue Reading
