If you are having issues for your order, here are some common questions and answers that may be helpful.

How should I store my coffee?

We recommend storing coffee in a cool, dry place, away from heat and light, in its original packaging, or an airtight container.

The levels of moisture present in the refrigerator and freezer can greatly accelerate flavor loss. We don't recommend storing beans in the refrigerator and can only recommend storage in the freezer under specific circumstances as in long term or uninterrupted periods storage unfortunately it may impose the flavor on your coffee.

What is the best temperature to brew coffee?

According to chemical studies, the optimal water temperature for drip coffee is 195-205 F. Colder water doesn't extract enough caffeine/essential oils from the beans, and above such temperature the acidity increases wildly.

How much coffee should I use per cup?
We recommend using 1-2 level measuring tablespoons of coffee per six (6) ounces of hot water 195-205 Fahrenheit. Using this coffee to water ratio brews a full strength cup, to which you can add hot water if the taste is too strong. Remember, you can always make coffee weaker by adding hot water to your cup, but you can’t make it any stronger once its brewed.

What’s the best way to brew coffee?
There are lots of ways to brew coffee, some of which taste better than others. Cone drip and Coffee Machines are okay. However, We like to drink French press pot coffee because its direct infusion produces fuller flavor. In addition, French press pot coffee allows the dissolved coffee solids to remain in the brew, which also contributes to flavor.  

Does water matter?

Yes! The water is a critical factor in the taste of your brewed coffee. Filtered water is normally the best choice to help avoid the minerals and chlorine that can be found in the municipal water system. However if your water tastes good, then if should be good for your coffee.

What can I do with used Coffee Grinds?

You can sprinkle it in your garden or compost or you can start your own body scrub line.  

Do you have Decaf?
