Whole Bean Coffee
We offer numerous grinds for all GROSCHE coffee beans, but we recommend shipping all of our coffees as whole bean coffees. This allows you to custom grind your beans for your preferred brewing method. It also means, that you get the freshest and most aromatic tasting coffee every time. Use a coarse to medium grind for French press and pour over coffee makers and a fine grind for stovetop espresso makers.
What is the Difference Between Dark, Medium & Light Roast Coffees?
Our Costa Rica Rainforest blend is a medium roast custom blend coffee. When choosing your roast you have three options; light, medium and dark. During the coffee production process, darker roasts involve keeping the beans on the machine longer or at a higher temperature compared to lighter roast coffee beans. When this happens the coffee beans will lose more moisture and become less dense. In the end, this gives the dark/medium roast beans more flavour by taking away some of the bitterness.
So, any coffee lovers’ preference will depend on their preferred taste and caffeine content. A lighter roast is dense with a higher caffeine content, a dark roast will bring out more of a single-note flavour and is less caffeinated. And a medium roast is a happy middle-ground between density, caffeine content and falvour.
How to Store your Coffee
A common misconception about storing coffee is that is good to put it in the freezer. Freezing your coffee puts it in contact with moisture which ends up draining it of its flavor. The best place to store your Costa Rica Rainforest coffee is within an airtight container, somewhere cool, dark and dry.
This could be a pantry or a cabinet, just as long as it’s somewhere away from heat and light. If you really want to store your coffee on your counter, keep the coffee in a canister that is opaque, airtight, and away from direct sunlight. Use it up within 1-2 weeks of opening to enjoy a coffee with the freshest, fullest aroma.
