Keep it Fresh! - Roaster Direct

   Coffee beans, unlike wine, cheese or scotch- do NOT get better with age.  That being said, how do you know your coffee is fresh, and what is the optimal time frame to consume it?  

Click Roast Deliver does NOT warehouse coffees

   Your coffee comes direct from the Roaster to you, ensuring the freshest coffee possible.  Our roasters ship within 2 business days of your order.  You can expect to receive your coffee, depending on your location, within 5-7 days of roast.  To ensure the freshest coffee, try ordering from our roasters that are closer to you.  We’ve listed the roast locations of all our roasters, so you know where your coffee is shipping from.  

Coffee is best 3 days to 3 weeks from roast

   Our roasters care passionately about the coffee they produce.  They invest heavily in their Direct Trade relationships, equipment, training, and green coffee to make sure you get the best coffee possible.  Instead of expiration dates, they put a “Roasted-on” date on their bags.  Coffee is best consumed from 3 days to 3 weeks after roast.  Most roasters use valve-type bags, so your coffee de-gasses (a good thing) while enroute to you.  ClickRoastDeliver’s Roasters ship within 48 hours of roast, and shipping takes 1-3 days.  Major market roasters will put expiration dates 12-18 months after roast on their product.  (In that time you can practically grow your own coffee!)  

Which sounds better to you, 3-4 weeks, or 48-72 weeks?   

Coffee Storage

   Coffee is best stored in cool, dark place, such as a cabinet or pantry.  Don’t put your coffee in the refrigerator or freezer!  This breaks down the oils in the coffee, and dries out the beans.  Airtight containers, or even Zip-loc bags work well, as long as they are kept cool.

Optimized shipping-  2-3 bags

   We have built our shipping process around keeping fresh coffee on your shelf.  Order 2-3 bags at a time, depending on your consumption, and you’ll always have fresh coffee!
