How to keep coffee fresh and in the best condition:
Coffee beans don’t have a fixed expiry date as such, but a 6-month coffee bean won’t make the same standard of coffee that a freshly roasted bean would make. Here are some guidelines about coffee life and how long it will last before losing its aroma and freshness:
Ground coffee should be used as soon as it’s made, it can last up to 1 or 2 hours.
Research shows that quality coffee branding supports quality perception, use branded cups with a spoon on a clean saucer (no coffee or milk drips!) and partner the coffee with a small biscuit or chocolate.
Ideally, coffee should be served at around 85°C in cups that have been pre-heated for the best taste experience
When serving coffee in a pot or pitcher, make sure it is clean and not too big! When serving over a litre of coffee, it is better to use multiple pots.
