The unforgettable lingering aroma and rich taste of the renowned Africafe Coffee coffees is why so many people cherish our collection. Properly storing our beloved coffee and tea is imperative for the fresh taste and satisfaction.
Organic coffee comes from a living plant, so they have a limited life span. You can increase the shelf life and the flavor by properly storing them.
Keeping coffee fresh is of utmost importance to great taste and aroma. Coffee is porous, which means it can absorb other flavors and usually stays fresh for about 2 weeks. For the best results, purchase your coffee on-line and store it in an air tight container that has a rubber or silicone seal. Store in a cool dark place, light and heat will compromise the flavor and aroma of the coffee.
Refrigerating coffee is not the best choice. Since coffee is porous it can absorb flavors, such as fish or garlic. Moisture deteriorates coffee and will make it taste like the refrigerator.
Freezing coffee is acceptable. If you have bought coffee in bulk and will not be using it within a couple of weeks, just try and keep it away from moisture. Freezing breaks down the oils in coffee, diminishing some of the flavors. If you plan on freezing a lot of coffee it is best to divide it up into smaller portions and wrap it in plastic and then store it in a sealable freezer bag. Never refreeze coffee; the frozen moisture is absorbed into the beans when they defrost, refreezing would add even more moisture.
Always purchase organic coffee and tea from a qulaity on-line merchant. At Africafe Coffee we only have top of the line fresh products, straight from our farm to your home.
