After an interesting conversation this morning with one of our customers from Facebook, we just wanted to put out a quick post about our retail beans selections. This will hopefully answer a few questions, and persuade a lot of you wonderful people to buy our beans.
Why do you only stock whole bean coffee?
We stock whole bean coffee to keep it fresh. Once coffee is ground, it starts to lose some of it's delicious aroma and flavour almost immediately. We are more than happy to grind it for you when you order it. This also allows us to give you the perfect grind for your preferred brew method, instead of a lot of places who'll sell pre-ground coffee with a 'one size fits all' grind.
How fresh are your beans?
We endeavour to sell beans that are less than a week from roast and recommend that you consume them within a month. All our bags will have a clear roast date on, something that we believe all coffee roasters should do.
Why do you have so many in stock?!
We recently made a change with our roastery. Instead of having seperate bags for retail and us, we decided to get all our beans in retail sizes. Whilst this costs slightly more for us, it guarantees that we will always have all the coffee that we sell in stock for you to buy. It also helps us to ensure your beans are ALWAYS fresh.
I like trying new beans from well known subscription services?
Ok so that ones not a question, but I'll handle it anyway. Whilst we will always stock our two house blends, Jailbreak and Blake, we also have a constantly changing single origin, similar to a popular coffee subscription service. This normally changes every two weeks, and we're always happy to let you sample it before you buy!
