Default Coffee College

About our coffee:
How is my order prepared?
Each batch of coffee is roasted on order! Your coffee is so fresh that we actually recommend waiting about 7 days off roast to brew it so the coffee can properly degas. With that, the time it takes for the coffee to degas to reach optimal flavor coincides perfectly with the time it takes for the coffee to ship so you're receiving the freshest coffee possible! Cheers!

When can I expect my order?
We like to get all orders processed within 4-5 business days. Excluding holidays and weekends. We do sometimes have delays if our fresh delivery is behind but it is worth the wait!

Should the coffee have a vacuum seal?
You'll notice that our coffee isn't vacuum sealed. And the reason why is because you don't need it because we roast your coffee on order. A vacuum seal is only needed when buying coffee off the grocery store shelf where the coffee has been sitting for weeks if not months! Our bags that contain a one-way valve allowing the coffee to de-gas while minimizing oxidative degradation!

As the coffee you order from us is roasted to order, you're getting the freshest coffee possible! And not coffee that has been roasted 30+ days ago!

How much coffee is in each bag?
Each bag weighs 12oz - whether bean or ground!

What elevation is your coffee grown at?
When coffee is grown at higher altitudes (at least 5,700ft above sea level), it has a number of beneficial effects on the beans. When you grow coffee at a higher altitude it slows the development and ripening of the beans. This is because the temperature of the environment is cooler which causes the beans to develop more slowly. The slow growth of the beans allows them to absorb more nutrients and become much more dense and harder than coffee grow at lower elevations. This means that there are more antioxidants in the beans, which means you will get more out of the coffee you are drinking. Not only is the coffee much more nutrient dense, it is also superior in taste. Most expensive high quality coffees are grown at higher elevations to maximize their flavor.

What does Shade Grown mean?
By growing coffee plants under a sun filtering canopy improves the quality of the coffee bean for a number of reasons. The trees provide shelter for the coffee plants from the sun. This allows the beans to mature at a slower. This allows them to become more nutrient rich, denser, and harder than coffee beans that are not shade grown. This means that the final coffee product will be much more nutrient rich and have a much better flavor.

The trees that shade the coffee offer other benefits than just protection from the sun. The leaves that fall from the branches of the trees provide a naturally occurring source of nutrients for the coffee plants. When the leaves decompose they become part of the soil which the coffee plants use to grow. This helps to improve the nutrient density of the coffee plants. The fallen leaves also provide protection for the coffee plants from weed growth. The fallen leaves act as a “mulch” making it hard for new seeds from other plants to grow. This means that there is more nutrients in the soil that are readily available for the coffee plants to use which will improve the nutrient richness of the coffee beans when they are fully developed.

Is your product tested for mycotoxins?
Yes we send our beans off for 3rd party testing to ensure our coffee is Mycotoxin free!

Is your coffee gluten free?
Yes, our coffee is gluten free including our flavored coffee!

Where is your coffee produced?
Our coffee is grown in Nicaragua.

Is your coffee single origin?
Yes, all of our coffee comes from the same farm. Coffee being from a “single origin” means that all of the beans come from one area of one farm. This helps to ensure you that every bean that goes into your coffee is of the same high quality as all of the others. This also means that all of the beans are processed in the exact same way and roasted the same way. This keeps the other beans from mixing with others, which can affect the flavor of your coffee and introduce foreign things like mycotoxins that may be present in other coffee beans that could be blended in.

How is your decaf processed?
We use the swiss water method The Swiss Water Process (SWP) is a non-solvent method for decaffeinating unroasted coffee beans.

How to take care of your coffee:
The best way to store your coffee is…?
An airtight container that is NOT clear. Place it in a cool, dry place like your pantry. You want your coffee beans or grounds to be away from light, heat, and moisture. Ground coffee and beans can last 6 months in the pantry.

Can you refrigerate your coffee beans or grounds?
No. Coffee grounds will act like baking soda and absorb odors from your fridge which will change the taste profile.

Can you freeze your coffee beans and grounds to make them last longer?
Yes. BUT make sure that they are in a vacuum sealed bag. This can make the coffee last indefinitely if it’s truly in an air tight container.

If you are only storing for a short amount of time, there is no need to freeze the coffee. Let coffee thaw for an hour after you pull it out of the freezer.

Shipping
What are your shipping destinations?
We currently only ship to U.S. and Canada addresses. We are looking into adding other shipping destinations soon. Please check back with us!

What is the shipping policy that you have?
Orders shipped using Priority mail usually take 5-7 business days, but due to the unpredictable nature of Covid-19, the holidays and the effects on the shipping industry, deliveries can be delayed.

Just to confirm. You are not the actual "Coffee company" but someone selling it through a referral (affiliate) link here: affid=817 So while you refer to the company as "order through US" you're not a principle of the company or your wouldn't need a affid. Transparency is the key.

The info in your "college" while interesting is obtained through their affiliate program and not from your actual investigation or first hand knowledge or attendance in "coffee college" ?

Sorry for the negativity and no reflection on the quality of "your" coffee just the way it is presented (especially after reading some of the other threads).

Is this coffee only sold in The Villages? Why is this thread in "The Villages, Florida, General Discussion?"

The OP is a TOTV Sponsor as indicated by the red username and title under their username. As such they have paid to promote their company or product. Anyone not interested in said product may just skip to the next thread.

Neither ... just curiosity since I had recently seen the OP's last coffee thread and saw the same question (with an answer) from the same user who posted it here again. Since the poster only had one other post since joining I simply looked at posters "previous posts" of which there was only one and it was coincidentally the identical question as this one which was answered by the advertiser in his other thread. Sometimes those types of posters are known as sockpuppets.

Having been a moderator in a couple other forums over the years this (and other) posts like it just make me look just out of habit. Some forums choose not to allow sockpuppets not saying that person was one.

Hope that explanation answered your question and satisfied your interest.

And to keep this on topic ... I like Starbucks for my "expensive" coffee. That's why Keurig was invented!

Shouldn't promotions be placed in the actual promotions/commercial section of ToTV? This particular part of the forum is General Discussion. This poster isn't trying to have a discussion. They're advertising their product.
