Thread: Overcoming Bad Coffee Experience
- 03-20-2017, 07:53 AM #21
Ensoluna, I'm on to my next coffee brand and have done an amateur cupping. It's a Guatemala Huehuetenango. I've never purchased from this company before and they have pretty decent ratings as far as the product is concerned. One of my concerns is freshness and working with an online company how can I ensure that what I'm actually getting is fresh coffee? I've done that baggie thing as well and not much gas coming from these beans. So what do you do in cases like this?"There's coffee in that nebula."- Katherine Janeway

Make sure you don't have a hole in the plastic bag. Do the beans have a date on the bag when they were roasted? I decided I'm only buying beans that have a roasted on date, but also realize that's not a guarantee, they could put any date on there they want, so I'm interested in hearing some more on how you tell if the coffee is freshly roasted. I just started trying different vendors and this is a concern.
The other thing I never see on these sites is them mentioning how old the green beans are they are using.
Please help us out here guys!

also, they try to hide the old bean flavors, so they tend to roast dark.
Getting the "freshly roasted beans" is one thing, but no one can tell those green beans are too old green beans.
