Q & A

What is the difference between Organic and Non-Organic Coffee?

  • Conventional Coffee is among the most heavily chemically treated foods in the world. It is steeped in synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and insecticides. Not only does the environment suffer from this overload, but so do the people who live in it. Farmers are exposed to a high level of chemicals while spraying the crops and while handling them during harvest.
  • Organic Coffee uses no synthetic fertilizers or chemicals in growing or production, which means cleaner beans, air, land, and water. The coffee is grown with only organic fertilizers. Organic farms also combat climate change by emitting less carbon than chemical farms, while also sequestering significant amounts of carbon. As a bonus, organic coffee beans are richer in healthful antioxidants, and taste smoother. Your health, and the health of the planet, both get a boost.

What Is Micro Roasted Coffee?

  • Micro Roasted Coffee is coffee that is roasted in small batches to exact specifications. The batches of coffee are generally less than 150 pounds, versus the hundred of pound roasted in each batch in commercial factories. The entire roasting process is overseen by skilled professionals with many years of experience in the business. The coffee beans are roasted in a large drum which constantly turns, ensuring an even roast. Once the coffee is completely roasted, the coffee is cooled by cold air being pulled through the drum by a fan. This process takes longer than the traditional method of cooling the coffee beans with cold water, but it ensures the flavor of the roasted coffee remains the same.

How to store Coffee Beans?

  • Keep beans airtight and cool. Your beans’ greatest enemies are air, moisture, heat, and light. To preserve your beans’ fresh roasted flavor as long as possible, store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature. Coffee beans can be beautiful, but avoid clear canisters which will allow light to compromise the taste of your coffee. Beachy coffee bags are resealable.

How Many Cups of Coffee from Whole or Ground beans?

Rule of Thumb for Brewed Coffee Yield

Bag Size (pounds) Bag Size (ounces) Number of standard cups of brewed coffee
1/2 lb. 8 oz. 20-27 (9 oz. cups)
3/4 lb. 12 oz. 30-40 (9 oz. cups)
1 lb. 16 oz. 40-54 (9 oz. cups)
5 lbs. 80 oz. 200-270 (9 oz. cups)

The information above can be used as a rule of thumb.  A lot of things determine the yield from a pound of coffee, including personal taste preferences and how much coffee is used in brewing.  Since most people measure their coffee by volume instead of weight, we have converted weight (oz./lbs.) to volume (ounces) to create the table above.
