High Quality Coffee Beans
Friday, May 30, 2008
Getting a great cup of coffee is a combination of many different reasons. These reasons include what equipment you use, if the equipment is clean, the water used and its quality, when the coffee beans you use were roasted and ground, and how high of quality the coffee bean is. When it comes to getting that perfect cup of coffee, the coffee bean quality is the most important of all.
A good thing to remember is that to find high quality coffee beans you have to look for them. Those cans or jars of coffee you find on the shelves of your supermarket are not going to be at all fresh. Think about it, would these manufacturers have or take the time to roast, grind, and ship their coffee all over the country and still preserve freshness? No, what you get are beans that are old and extremely low quality.
When you are looking to buy coffee and buy freshness, you want to be looking for one hundred percent Arabica coffee beans. Sometimes these can be found in your local supermarket, but specialty coffeehouses are more popular for a completely Arabica blend.
When you do buy coffee beans from a specialty coffeehouse, you want to look at the blends that are popular and faster moving. This will ensure the blend is stocked regularly, giving you the best chance to get maximum freshness. While in the supermarket, you will want to look for vacuum-sealed package. These typically come with expiration dates, which ensure that you will get the best possible freshness.
Some supermarkets grind coffee in-house, if you are looking for that kind of coffee bean, you will want to ask workers when the coffee was ground. The best thing to do is if they cannot tell you, go elsewhere. You could even get excellent coffee beans and grind your own coffee; this is the best possible freshness you could ever get. Remember to use the coffee grounds within a day, to keep that freshness.
