A roast date informs when coffee was roasted

What is the Roast Date?

I recommend you only buy coffee with a coffee roast date displayed on the front of the packaging. The roast date indicates when the coffee roast took place, so you can determine how old the coffee roast is. Coffee reaches its best or Peak flavor on day 8-14 past the roast date. Older coffee will start to oxidize and deteriorate in smell and taste as coffee ages beyond 14 days.

Buy a 2 week coffee supply to keep a fresh roast fresh

How to Keep my Fresh Roast Fresh?

I recommend you never buy more than a 2-week supply of fresh roasted coffee. Finding and buying fresh roasted coffee is not easy. You will not find a fresh roast in the grocery store because larger coffee brands need more than 14 days to get their coffee distributed nationwide.

Find a small, local coffee roaster, who roasts fresh on demand and buy 1-2 weeks supply. Most households with two persons consume 2 coffees per day, which amounts to about 8 Oz of coffee every two weeks.Β 

Some coffee shops roast their coffee on-site and you can ask the barista to prepare your favorite coffee with a fresh roast. In most coffee shops, however, your favorite brew will cost $5 or more per cup. So why not order your fresh roasted coffee online for home delivery. You’ll be indulging in a fresh roast before long at only $0.59/cup instead.

Fresh Coffee Facts

#1: Coffee is similar Produce: Better Fresh!

Everybody agrees that fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and fresh bread taste better than aged fruit, old vegetables, and stale bread. When it comes to your morning caffeine fix, however, we never think of coffee as a fresh food product. Coffee from the supermarket will often be 120 days past the roast date. Imported or specialty coffees are sometimes even older. Coffee perishes when it gets old. Get a fresh roasted coffee instead.

#2: Coffee is Shelf Stable

Coffee is a shelf-stable product and safe to consume for up to 2 years after coffee roasting.

Although coffee might be safe to consume by the best before date, by that time, coffee smells rancid and tastes bitter.

To avoid bitter coffee, brew a fresh roasted coffee that states the roast date on the package. you'll notice that a fresh roast tastes better.

#3: Your Coffee at Home is Stale

Except for the coffee consumer, it is more convenient for all participants in the coffee supply chain to ignore coffee freshness as the most important contributor to delightful indulgence and abundant flavor, which only fresh roasted coffee can deliver.

Grocery store coffee is often more than 120 days old and tastes bitter, sour of rancid, no matter what you do.

Why buy whole bean coffee instead of coffee grinds?

Grinding coffee starts the oxidation process and increases the speed at which coffee smell and taste deteriorate. At Peak Flavor Coffee, we recommend you buy a home coffee grinder first and always only grind what you really intend to use immediately. Leaving the beans in an air-tight sealed coffee canister will keep your fresh roast fresh for some time. Learn more about coffee oxidation.
