How to Store Coffee - Useful Tips!

Coffee can quickly lose its flavor if not stored correctly, here are some useful tips for making the tastiest brews:

Grind your own beans and do it right before you brew, rather than buying ready ground coffee.

Use an airtight container for storage. Ceramic, glass and stainless steel containers usually work well.

Store the coffee away from direct sunlight and sources of heat, i.e. somewhere relatively dark and cool.

Do not freeze or refrigerate the coffee. This will cause it to lose flavor

Percolators are excellent makers for those who like their coffee drinks to have a robust and full flavor taste.  It is highly recommended that you grind your own beans too, if you want your beverages to have maximum flavor.

  • Coffee beans are not actually beans. They are berries that have undergone a roasting process.
  • Before it was a drink, coffee was eaten. People would chew on the berries from the plant mixed with fat for extra energy.
  • Although coffee was first consumed in Ethiopia, it was the Arabs who first cultivated the plant, and also the first to introduce roasting.
  • There are two main types of coffee: Arabica and Robusta. 70% of the coffee drunk is Arabica, the more aromatic and milder type. The other 30% is Robusta, which is much stronger, but more bitter-tasting.

  • New Yorkers consume nearly 7 times as much coffee as people of other cities in the US.
  • Coffee can kill you if you drink too much. The lethal dose is around 100 cups.
