Frequently Asked Questions


How are our beans packed?

We use a highly specialised process that removes the oxygen from the bag during packing. All our bags have a one-way valve allowing off gassing of the beans, with no contact with oxygen once sealed. This ensures that the beans remain fresh and continue to develop naturally in the bag.

In fact, they will still be fresh 30 days after roasting in an unopened bag.

What is the shelf life of your coffee?

Due to our specialised packing process our beans have a much longer shelf life and a natural development of flavour in the bag once packed.

Unopened, our beans will remain fresh for at least 5 weeks. The optimum time to use our coffees is from 2 weeks for our blends, and from the roast date for our single origins.

Once opened, the beans will start to oxidise from the exposure to oxygen. As Oxidation is the fastest form of flavour degradation in coffee, the coffee will then last 2-5 weeks depending on your method of storage. For best results use within 6 to 8 days once opened. After this time it won’t be stale but it may be flat.

What is the best way to store my beans at home?

Store your coffee in an airtight container, in a cool, dry place, away from heat and sunlight.

If you receive our 250gm bags, they are resealable, so it is best to leave them in the bag they came. The 1kg bags are best kept in their bags with the top folded over and stored in a vacuum sealed storage container.

What is the best age to use the coffee?

For Milk Blends - our beans begin to truly develop their full flavour potential from 2 weeks onwards.

If used too fresh, the flavour will not have developed to its full potential.

For Single Origins, fresh is best, so they can be used immediately from roast date. However each bean will develop at a different rate as the bean degases and the body and character changes.

I want the latest roast date.

If you do want a product that is the freshest roast date, please note this on your order and we will be happy to accommodate your request. We will confirm shipping dates for all special requests.

Can you grind my beans for me?

We can only grind in 250gm zip sealed bags for you with a range of grinding options available on our website for different brew methods.
