All of Our Coffee Beans are Freshly Roasted to Order
So why is "Freshly Roasted" best? Coffee beans contain over 800 diverse aromatic compounds. Scientific studies have shown that major changes occur within a few days of roasting. Over the following 10-14 days, changes are progressively significant. After 3 wks a large proportion of aromatics have gone. Oxygen is the enemy of roasted beans. It’s not a steady deterioration. Once it starts, the process accelerates. After 2 weeks a “stale” flavour will be noticeable. Modern packaging controls this process by having a non return valve that allows the coffee "vapours" to escape but prevents the oxygen getting in. However, sooner or later, the coffee will have given up all of it's aromatics. Freshly Roasted means your coffee comes to you within 7 days of roasting. This means you get the most out of your coffee as it's at the beginning of it's "ageing" process. Some well known coffees roasted abroad may be sitting in a shipping container and on a warehouse shelf for weeks before you get it. Therefore, you're not always sure how old it is.
Primo Caffé Guru Coffee Bean Range
In the Beginning...The Coffee story started way back in the 13th Century in Ethiopia. However, there is a story of an Ethiopian goat herder discovering coffee beans in the 9th Century! By the 16th Century it had spread all around the Middle East, Persia, Turkey and North Africa. It then spread to Italy, the rest of Europe and on to Indonesia and the Americas. Thanks to those intrepid explorers and traders, we now have a source of both Arabica and Robusta coffee beans from around the world that provide different characteristics that are influenced by Country, region and climate. These can be blended and roasted in various ways to give a wealth of "Taste Profiles".
