We believe that there is no one-way of making the perfect cup of Coffee. The four main factors that determine the quality of your coffee: -the brewing method, the origin of the coffee and the type of roast and grind. You are the best judge of what particular brewing method is most likely to produce the kind of coffee most pleasing to your taste buds.

A few of our frequently asked questions:

1. What is freshly roasted coffee and how is it different from coffee sold at big establishments or other stores in the country that do not roast their own coffee?

Many of the flavor and aroma compounds that make coffee delicious are fragile and begin to break down within weeks of roasting. When you buy coffee at most stores or large coffee chains, that coffee has been roasted weeks but more likely months ago a large facilities and goes through a chain of intermediaries before reach the customer. By the time you open the bag, the beans are stale.   We do things differently.  All of our coffee is roasted fresh on order, twice a month and sent it out to you as quickly as possible so that it can be enjoyed at its freshest.

2. What is the quality of coffee you use?

We use Robusta/ Arabica beans. These coffee beans must exhibit distinctive attributes in one or more of the following areas: Aroma, Flavor, Acidity, or Body.

3. When will I receive my order?

We will roast your coffee as soon as possible. We roast a once in 15 days and typically orders placed will be executed with 10 days. All coffee is shipped within 24-48 hours of roasting.

4. Is Indian coffee of a lower standard than coffee sold elsewhere?

The Indian farms is the highest quality of coffee globally. However, India’s tradition of tea culture and the more recent introduction of instant coffee (which uses cheaper, low grade coffee beans) has left the country’s premium coffee offerings somewhat undiscovered. Ironically, although select Indian coffee farms are starting to gain recognition abroad, they are still not well known in the country.

5. What’s the best way of storing coffee?

Oxygen and moisture are coffee’s biggest enemies. Keeping coffee in the fridge is not recommended especially since condensation in the fridge pulls oils to the surface of the coffee, which breaks down the coffee. Also coffee is highly absorbent and will absorb the smells of other food items in the fridge. Ideally, it’s recommended that you buy coffee every 2 weeks and store it in an airtight container. If the container is transparent or translucent, place it in a cupboard or dark area. For more information, check out our blog post on coffee storage
