How To Buy Good Coffee Beans

Download File --->

The best coffees in the world can be spotted by the packaging or coffee ecommerce page - if you know what to look for. Here are some elements that let you know that the coffee roaster is highly concerned with freshness and quality.

Flavor Descriptors - Roasters that provide specific flavor descriptors for their coffee are roasters who are confident and not afraid of being called out for fake flavors. These roasters want to empower you to taste the nuance in coffee.

Cliche Flavor Descriptors - The easiest way to describe over roasted, ashy coffee is to say it tastes like dark chocolate (accounts for the bitterness), citrus (accounts for the acidity), and nuts (accounts for bad flavor - sometimes). If you see these flavor descriptors, the coffee was probably not roasted to perfection.

An online subscription offers you stunning freshness that local shops and supermarkets can't compete with. Instead of going somewhere and buying beans that may be weeks post-roast, you are sent beans that were roasted and shipped within one day of each other.

It doesn't get any fresher than that (unless you go through the trouble to your yourself). And since coffee tastes soooo much better when it's uber-fresh, this is a clear advantage of coffee subscriptions.

As I already mentioned, single-origin has become the de facto standard among hardcore coffee snobs. Single-origin means that coffee comes from a single estate or, at least, a specified geographical location. This is the case in places like Ethiopia, where most farmers are smallholders, and coffee from different farmers will be mixed at the processing station.

"Kicking Horse packs a lot of flavor into its coffee. The company also does a great job of differentiating its various blends, which makes it easy for customers to choose the one best suited for their taste buds."

In selecting the best whole bean coffee, we considered price, availability, variety, and (most importantly) flavor. Stumptown's Holler Mountain scores highly in all areas, making it a must-try on your next trip to the grocery store. Espresso drinkers will likely prefer Lavazza's Super Crema, a bold and slightly sweet espresso roast.

As time goes on, this harmony starts to fade and several things happen to your coffee that impact flavour. Sugars will disappear; oils and aromatics will evaporate; and, certain unpleasant flavours might start to appear, such as added bitterness.

While some people enjoy going further towards the darker end of the roasting spectrum, it can take you further away from the natural and wonderful flavours of the original coffee bean. And subtle notes can be easily lost.

As specialty coffee roasters, our approach has always been to bring out the intrinsic flavours of the bean rather than ch
