The Secret Storage Dance: How We Keep Your Craft Coffee Fresh from Roast to Sip

Ever wondered how your favorite craft coffee manages to stay fresher than a daisy despite its journey from roast to cup? Well, it's not magic (though we like to think of it as coffee wizardry). At I Prefer Craft Coffee, we take the freshness of our coffee beans seriously – and that means handling them with care, even behind the scenes. From the moment they're roasted to the instant they reach your mug, we've got the perfect storage tango down pat to ensure your coffee's flavor remains top-notch.

Chapter 1: Pre-Roast Adventures: A World of Control

Before our beans even hit the roasting party, they bask in ideal storage conditions. Picture this: a place where temperature, moisture, and UV light exposure are under strict control – the coffee's version of a luxurious spa retreat.

  1. Temperature Tampering: Our beans chill (literally) in an environment where the temperature remains constant, preventing any unwanted flavor changes caused by extreme heat or cold.

  2. Moisture Management: Moisture is the enemy of fresh coffee! So, we keep it at bay by storing our beans in a dry atmosphere, shielding them from any moisture mischief that could tamper with their taste.

  3. UV Light Lockdown: Just like a vampire recoils from sunlight, our beans shy away from UV exposure. They're stored away from any light that could potentially mess with their delicate flavors.

Chapter 2: Post-Roast Safe Haven: A Freshness Fortress

Once our beans have danced their way through the roasting process, they continue their freshness journey in a specially designed storage sanctuary.

  1. Temperature Control Continues: The freshly roasted beans are stored in a cool, dark, and dry environment. We maintain that ideal temperature to lock in those aromatic oils and flavors right before shipping.

  2. Airtight and Secure: As your fresh coffee is processed for shipping, they are placed into our coffee bags that are as airtight as Fort Knox, ensuring that no external elements sneak in to sabotage the flavor party.

  3. Fast Shipping: We believe in swift delivery, ensuring your coffee reaches you while it's still practically crackling with freshness from the roaster.
