Do I really really really need fresh roasted coffee?
Of course! You like fresh bread, you love fresh juice and eat all your vegtables fresh. Everything is better when it's fresh. Our coffee is roasted just before we send it to you. Every day we roast small batches of coffee so we can guarantee that the coffee beans are fresh when we send them out.
Besides, we just make very good coffee. We test and taste every batch we make, that means little sleep with all that caffeïne but that also means that if a batch doesn't sit right with us, we don't sell it. Every bag of coffee is labeled with the roasting date so you always know how fresh your coffee precisely is.
Another big win for you is that our coffee is not expensive. Trust us or check similair websites. We are cheaper (and nicer!).
Believe us, your taste buds will thank you.
How long ago was the fresh coffee roasted?
We can guarantee that our fresh roasted coffee's are never roasted longer than four weeks ago on the moment of delivery.
In reality most of our fresh coffee's are fresher. We try to never roast more than needed for the week ahead.
The roasting date is written on the front side of every bag of fresh coffee.
When are the freshly roasted coffee beans the best?
We always advise to give the beans one week rest after roasting, this is because the taste is not optimal in the first week after roasting the beans. So check the bag, if your fresh coffee was roasted the day before it might be better to wait a day or two.
How do I store the coffee beans without them getting old?
Fresh coffee's is best kept away from moisture, heat and smells. The best way to keep your fresh coffee fresh is to keep them in a air tight can or box on roomtemprature. If you want to keep your coffee beans longer (weeks or months), it is possible to keep the beans in the freezer. Make sure the packaging is air tight and the moisture can't get to the beans. The fridge isn't an optimal choice. This is because coffee beans tend to attract smells. It would be a shame if your fresh beans smelled like unions all of a sudden. grounded coffee is harder to keep fresh. We advise to never keep ground coffee longer than fourteen days after delivery in an air tight packaging in roomtemprature.
Keep in mind that the advise above counts for fresh coffee. Coffee/coffee beans can be kept quite long (one or two years in an air tight packaging), without going bad. But the fresh taste and nice cream layer will be out of the beans. Thats why we advise to finish your package of fresh coffee within two months of reveiving the package.
What is the difference between light, medium and dark roast?
Depending on how long and how hot we roast the coffee beans we call them light, medium or dark roast. This is how we regularly roast the beans. Almost every type we have in our fresh coffee assortement is medium roasted, with subtle differences between them. Unless of course the product page says different. We put together an overview for you on the page: 'different fases of coffee roasting.'
