Do you enjoy our premium coffee blends? Is it the pleasant aroma, the rich taste? Everyone can agree that a superb brew always comes down to how fresh the ingredients are. Whether you purchase a single Coffex coffee packet or buy in bulk, as soon as you tear open the packet seal, there is a lot you can do to preserve the freshness of your precious coffee beans.
So how should you store and use your coffee beans?
Check the Roasted Date
It may seem trivial and obvious but it is always worth checking the expiration and roasted dates of your stock. Avoid disappointment entirely by avoiding a packet that has been in storage for too long. Alternatively, you can be proactive in which packet to open next if you are in the habit of rotating your stock properly.
Use a Sealed Container
How often are you dipping into your stash of yummy coffee? Is it worth investing in a secure container? The connoisseurs at home are probably content with a plastic clip or a small plastic container. Baristas and café owners, however, may prefer to use sealed storage tubs to top up their hoppers in a flash without compromising the quality of their product.
Don’t Refrigerate Your Beans
Did you know that refrigerated coffee beans can affect the quality of your product? Refrigeration can form condensation and moisture which can quicken the staleness of the beans.
Protect Your Goods
Proper storage is essential because air, moisture, temperature and light are all factors that affect the freshness of your coffee. For more hot tips, contact the experts at Coffex
