The answer to all your coffee questions.

How do I store coffee?

Coffee is best when it is fresh. For us this means for espresso coffees; about 1 week after roasting to 6 weeks after roasting date, for filter coffee immediately after roasting to about 4 weeks after roasting. You can find the roast date on the packaging. When coffee ages it will loose most of it’s flavors, but is still consumable. Store the coffee preferably in a dark place in a sealed container.

Which coffee should I use for which machine?

Most coffee beans that we supply are suitable for espresso brewing methods. When we roast a coffee specifically for filter coffee, we will mention it at the product description.

Do you sell ground coffee?

All our coffees are shipped as whole beans. Ground coffee ages faster and therefore looses flavor. In addition, the desired grind sizealways depends on your brewing method or espresso machine. Quickly boost your coffee quality: order a coffee grinder.

How sustainable is Single Estate Coffee Roasters?

We buy over 80% of our coffee directly at the coffee producer. We call this Direct Trade. For us this is the most honest way of doing business. Not only do we pay directly to the producer in this way, but we immediately see what kind of producer we are dealing with. In addition, it offers us an enormous number of opportunities to develop and choose the best coffees together with the coffee producer. Many of our coffee producers are also certified by UTZ, Rainforest Alliance or carry a BIO certification. You can find more about the way we work here.

What is the difference between Arabica and Robusta coffee?

Arabica and robusta coffee are 2 different varieties of the coffee plant. Arabica coffees are generally more delicate and tastier, while the robust robusta often has more dark, earthy flavors. For taste reasons, we therefore often choose Arabica coffees.
