Whole Bean Coffee

Written by Karen Bates (last updated February 24, 2020)

For coffee drinkers, a daily cup of hot coffee is just a part of the day. Enjoying a cup of this hot beverage first thing in the morning or as a pick-me-up during the day allows you to take a break and relax for a moment.

There are many kinds of coffee out there. Different roasts and flavors can add variety to your daily coffee and might even make your coffee experience a bit more exciting as you try something you wouldn't normally have. Every person knows how he or she prefers coffee most of the time, but it's always fun to experiment with different ways of preparing this much-loved drink.

When it comes to enjoying the very freshest coffee possible, there is one standard rule: brew coffee as close to the time you grind coffee as possible. If you buy coffee that comes in a package pre-ground, or if you grind it at the grocery store, it is likely that your coffee won't stay fresh for very long. Within a week or two, coffee becomes stale and loses some of its delectable flavor. It doesn't matter how good the coffee was to begin with, or how well your coffee machine works. If the coffee isn't fresh, it just isn't going to taste as good.

That's where buying whole bean coffee comes into play. These whole beans—the ones you grind at the store or purchase already ground—keep freshness and flavor far longer than ground coffee. If you buy your coffee in bulk, it's especially helpful to buy whole beans so that it won't go stale as quickly.

You don't want to drink coffee that is made from whole beans, so of course you'll need to grind these beans before use. There is a simple and easy option for dealing with whole bean coffee at home, and that is to get a coffee grinder. Although, some may shy away from grinding their own coffee, it does not have to be an expensive or stressful process. In fact, many coffee grinders are quite inexpensive, and the results can be just as good as a grinder you'd use at the store. Try purchasing whole bean coffee and grinding it at home right before brewing for the best taste possible.

Having whole bean coffee in your home is a great way to enjoy the best cup of coffee you'll ever have. Next time you need to purchase coffee, skip the pre-ground bags and get whole beans instead—the difference in taste makes it totally worth it.
