We make people smile. Coffee, properly roasted and prepared, is a heady brew. It is both earthy and ephemeral. Freshly roasted coffee contains an interplay of phenols, terpenes, oils, and acids that are equal in complexity to fine wine or beer.
We roast coffee fresh. We don’t pre-roast anything or keep roasted beans in inventory. We roast your order after you place it. Check our selection and call 877-977-1337 to place an order.
Most of us were taught to drink pre-packaged ground coffee. Here’s the truth: Coffee is just as perishable as milk, even when purchased as whole beans. The oils go rancid quickly. Once ground, peak flavor is gone in 30 minutes or less. Once brewed, the complex aroma dissipates in a few minutes more.
Green coffee beans stay fresh for months, but once roasted they begin a complex chemical change. Immediately after roasting, the beans continue to release carbon dioxide. During the first few hours or days, depending on variety and roast level, the coffee will taste acidic and sharp. The flavors quickly mellow after a couple days and the beans reach peak flavor. Stored properly, they remain flavorful for several weeks, perhaps as much as two months. Past this point, the coffee becomes increasingly rancid and begins to pick up the familiar smell of store-bought coffee.
