May 21, 2004, Newsletter Issue #3: How Much Coffee to Grind

Tip of the Week


When you grind your coffee beans, grind just enough to brew right away. It`s often tempting to grind enough beans to last for two or three days. The trouble is, as soon as the beans are ground, you start to lose flavor. Much of the flavor of coffee is found in its aromatic oils. As soon as coffee is ground, those oils are exposed to the air and start to dissipate. So if you truly love your coffee, grind for immediate use only.

I mentioned last week that you can now save up to 30% on our gourmet coffee beans at

We have now applied that offer across all our coffees.

Here`s how it works:

Buy 4 bags of coffee... and save 10%
Buy 8 bags of coffee... and save 20%
Buy 12 bags of coffee... and save 30%

What could you possibly do with 12 x 2lb bags of coffee?

The easiest thing is to get together with some friends, neighbors or colleagues and share it among yourselves. Then you`ll all get the 30% saving - even if you only take two or three bags each.

Alternatively, buy 4, 8 or 12 bags and then store all the unopened bags in your freezer. That way they`ll stay fresh for months.
