Ever wonder if your coffee beans are really fresh? Stale coffee beans are more plentiful than you know. There is a simple test to see if your favourite brand of coffee beans are as fresh as they want you to believe.
You say you buy the more expensive beans because they are fresher? Maybe you better do this just to make sure you’re getting your monies worth.
Get yourself a new ziplock bag and dump in a half cup of your just bought coffee beans; squeeze the air out of it and seal. Let it sit out on the counter for 24 hours and watch what happens. Do you have stale coffee beans? If that ziplock bag didn’t puff up because of gas pressures you most definitely have stale coffee beans.
The test is that simple and gives you an idea if that expensive coffee brand you rave about is actually the best you can do. For freshest coffee we suggest you either buy from a roaster near you or online coffee retailers that normally roasts their coffee’s just before shipping ans has an actual roasting date stamped on the bag.
