There was an article that I came across recently that listed the 25 “best” coffee roasters in America. The report included lots of companies I had never heard of and only a few of the ones I believe rank up there with the best. As you may know, I have some opinions about coffee, mostly that it is about flavor, not caffeine. Also, I strongly prefer specific methods of preparation to others.
I know, this is quite a “First World” kind of problem isn’t it. Nevertheless… As I’ve written before, I like coffee. I probably spend too much on the beans as well. So, there is a need to store them correctly to maintain the best flavor for as long as possible.
