Our standard bulk package size is five pounds whole bean except Espressos, which are in two pound bags. We use a specially designed, three ply foil bag with a one way de-gassing valve. The valve allows the natural gasses produced in the roasting process to escape while not permitting air to enter the bag. This allows us to package the coffee fresh from roasting. Additionally, we vacuum the air from the bag and gas flush with nitrogen, greatly extending the shelf life of our coffees. Nitrogen gas is used in many food processes to preserve products without the use of chemicals.
Natural carbon dioxide produced in the roasting process is what gives coffee its freshness. This is also why it is better to not grind the coffee until just before use, to preserve the gases and flavor trapped inside the bean. Since we roast daily, we do not package any order until it is received. This means we are shipping the freshest coffee possible.
Prepackaged Retail Bags
We also offer 8, 12 or 16 ounce retail packaging in the same type valve bags as our larger bags, available in the following colors: Black, Blue, Copper, Forest Green, Gold, Purple, Red, Silver and White.
Fractional Packaging (Frac Pac’s)
These are small pre-ground pre-measured packs of coffee perfect for whatever size batch you are brewing. Great for restaurant use, or for situations where you go through a lot of a particular coffee in a short time. These come in limited sizes and quantities, are sold by the case and not all coffees (no flavors) are offered in this type of packaging. Call for more details.
Air, light, heat and cold are coffees enemies when it comes to freshness. Once opened, coffee should be stored in an airtight container in the cabinet. Coffee should never be stored in the freezer or refrigerator. It is best to purchase whole bean and grind just before using.
