Should I Buy Ground Coffee Beans or Whole Coffee Beans?
Should I buy whole coffee beans or ground coffee beans? A question we get on almost every Roasterie factory tour! The Roasterie answer is whole beans, whole beans, whole beans! Whole beans are more flavorful and produce that “fresh” quality everyone looks for in a delicious cup of coffee. Ground beans, on the other hand, tend to lose the fragrance we’re looking for when we open a new bag of beans. So the sooner you use coffee after grinding it, the more of the original intended flavors there will be. Ground Coffee Beans: The Pros & Cons But what about the person who prefers convenience over flavor? Obviously, ground coffee is the next best thing! Keep in mind that when you buy ground coffee you may be sacrificing a little flavor but you’re saving yourself valuable time (in the morning that can make all the difference in the world—we’re talking to you sleepyheads!). If you prefer the convenient route, we do have a few tips to get the most out of the grounds you buy:
- Buy a week’s worth of grounds at a time to insure you’ll get the most flavors out of your ground beans.
- Store your grounds properly away from coffee killers. Our Roasterie AirScape Container is like a coffee bodyguard.
