Storing your coffee beans properly is essential to maintaining their freshness and flavour for longer.
It is recommended to store them in an airtight container in a cool, dark place, away from heat, moisture, and light. Avoid storing them in the fridge or freezer, as the fluctuating temperatures can affect the beans' quality.

Grinding your own coffee beans just before brewing can greatly enhance the freshness and overall taste of your coffee. Pre-ground coffee may lose its flavor more quickly due to increased surface area exposure. Though, Redber's pre-ground coffee will still be of good quality 2-3 months after purchase.

Grind size affects the extraction of flavours from your coffee. This means different brewing methods require varying grind sizes to achieve the desired taste profile. Finer grinds are typically used for espresso, while coarser grinds are more suitable for cafetiere/French press or cold brew.

The country of origin has a significant impact on the taste of coffee due to factors such as climate, altitude, soil quality, and processing methods. Each coffee-growing region produces beans with unique flavour profiles.

You can expect earthy flavour notes from Asia, fruity and floral notes in African coffees, Chocolatey, fruity flavours in central America, and chocolatey/nutty tones in South American varieties.

To determine if your coffee beans are stale or past their expiration date, use your senses. Fresh beans should have a vibrant aroma and be mostly free from oils (some oiliness is normal). Stale beans may appear oily and dull, lacking the characteristic aroma and flavour. If your coffee tastes flat or bitter, it may be a sign that the beans are no longer at their peak freshness.

Arabica and Robusta are the two most common species of coffee beans. Arabica beans are known for their complex flavours, acidity, and sweetness, while Robusta beans are characterised by their flatter, earthy taste. At Redber all of our coffee is arabica.

Investing in a coffee grinder is often worth it for those seeking a fresher and more flavourful coffee experience. Grinding coffee beans just before brewing helps preserve their aroma and flavour compounds for longer, resulting in a more aromatic and robust cup of coffee. However, pre-ground beans are convenient and will still stay fresh for plenty of time.

Light, medium, and dark roast coffee beans each offer distinct flavour profiles due to the varying levels of roasting they undergo. Light roast coffee beans are roasted for a shorter period, allowing the inherent flavours of the bean to shine through. These beans often exhibit bright acidity, floral and fruity notes, and a light body. Medium roast coffee beans are roasted slightly longer, resulting in a balanced flavour profile with pronounced sweetness and acidity. These beans may offer nutty, chocolatey, or caramel-like undertones, making them a popular choice for many coffee drinkers. Dark roast coffee beans undergo an extended roasting process, leading to a bold and robust flavour profile. Dark roasts typically feature a full body and low acidity.

Ultimately, the choice between light, medium, and dark roast coffee beans comes down to personal preference, with each roast level offering a unique and enjoyable coffee experience. We do not recommend light roasts or African origin coffees for espresso as it usually turns out very sharp and sometimes sour, but some people do enjoy this.

Orders received are added to our automatic ordering system to join the roasting queue. We would normally expect to roast and pack your order within 1-2 working days of receipt.

General

The short answer is No - We roast coffee to order, that's how it's always so fresh!

However - rarely there are some 250g bags available in the Cafe - please do not rely on this, it is never guaranteed.

We don’t have an on site shop, as we are an online store. We do offer a Click and Collect service.
