USING OUR COFFEE AT HOME
We always say that coffee is a personal thing and the way you prepare it is entirely up to you. Whether or drink it back or add cream, prefer a single serve cup or a full-pot, whatever gets you to the joy that a cup coffee brings is all up to you. We do however have some best practices and suggestions that we offer that can certainly help lead to a wonderful cup of coffee more consistently.
How much coffee should I use to make a pot of coffee?
Of course everyone has their own unique preferences for how strong they like their coffee, but we have created our full-pot bags to create what we believe to be the best-tasting pot of coffee for most folks. Simply use the 1.5oz as is measured out for you in the full-pot bags to make a fantastic 8-12 cup pot! Again, this can be adjusted per your personal preferences, but this is a great place to start.
Why Choose Whole Bean? Freshness is the key to great tasting coffee. Exposure to air will impact the fresh taste and grinding does expose the coffee to air. So, grinding your beans right before you brew is the best way to get the freshest, most flavorful coffee each and every time.
Why Choose Ground? For the convenience of course. When you purchase Door County Coffee already ground, it is ready for you to brew in minutes. With our superior packaging process combined with the fact that we do roast each and every day, you can be confident that is some of the freshest ground coffee out there. So, no worries if you don't want to go through the process of grinding - we'll make sure they coffee is still fresh and flavorful for you.
What is the best way to store Door County Coffee to keep it fresh?
You are a smart coffee drinker to be asking this question! Storing your coffee properly is essential to keeping it at its maximum peak flavor so each and every cup you enjoy is just as good as the first.
Air, heat and light are the three main factors that will affect the freshness of coffee, so keeping it away from all three as much as possible is the key. Storing coffee in an airtight container in the freezer is the most ideal scenario, but an airtight container on your kitchen counter will also keep coffee fresh for quite some time. Of course, coffee will never really expire, but as time passes, if not stored correctly, coffee can lose the great taste you are hoping for.
