Fresh roasted coffee can be compared to fresh baked bread—it tastes best right out of the oven! As soon as coffee is done roasting it begins to get stale, so coffee is best when it is consumed within two weeks of roasting.
We recommend that customers buy smaller portions more frequently to ensure freshness. Once you're used to drinking fresh roasted coffee, there's no turning back!

Coffee beans are green as they are placed in the roaster. As the heat increases, they turn a lighter yellow and emit a grassy smell.
When the temperature rises above 360 degrees you will hear the "first crack", which is an audible cracking sound as there is a rapid release of heat, steam and carbon dioxide gas from the bean. It sounds like popcorn popping. Sugars begin to caramelize and water escapes. This is the point that the roast can be considered Medium.
Sugars continue to caramelize and oils migrate to the top as the beans expand and you will hear a "second crack". This is when the beans are at the Medium Dark stage and as the roast becomes very dark the smoke is more pungent as sugars burn completely. If you roast too dark, the beans will burn completely and the roast will only result in a thin-bodied cup of charcoal water.
Fresh Coffee Storage and Brewing
Wait 12 to 24 hours before brewing fresh-roasted coffee. Store coffee in an airtight container at room temperature. Grind beans just before brewing. Use 1-2 tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water.
