100% arabica coffee beans.
for optimum results, pre-ground coffee that is not sealed in a nitrogen-flushed package exposes the entire bean to oxygen, which causes rapid staling. whole bean coffee could be compared to a loaf of bread, while ground coffee is like bread crumbs that quickly dry out and stale.
use cold, fresh water to make your coffee. do not use mineral water. the minerals will coat the heating element of the coffee brewer and eventually ruin the machine. nor should you use distilled water, as some mineral content is required for proper flavour extraction.
it’s important to use enough coffee to make a good cup of coffee. the minimum coffee to water ratio is 7g of coffee per 6fl oz of water, though many coffee lovers prefer a ratio of 10g of coffee to 6fl oz of water.
if using a glass pot machine with a burner, the coffee will only be good for a maximum of one half hour (20 minutes is recommended). after that, the burner will have cooked off the flavours of the coffee and it will start to taste thick and muddy. do not judge freshness by temperature. coffee that is still hot will not necessarily be fresh.
while coffee will never go “bad” in the way other perishable foods will, coffee’s flavours and aromas will fade as it ages. the best way to keep coffee is in an airtight container in a cool place, not in the fridge or freezer, as cold temperatures will dry out the flavour oils and the coffee may pick up unwanted odours.
