Frequently Asked Questions

Just how much ground coffee do I need for ‘x’ amount of coffee?

About two teaspoons of ground coffee for every 6 ounces of coffee. (Approximately 0.38 oz. or 10.6 g of whole coffee beans.) If you're preparing more than one cup, simply multiply the recipe by the number of cups you'll need.

Why aren't our coffee bags sexy?

We believe in great coffee without the added expense of marketing costs, and unlike most other coffee companies… a full pound of coffee does not include package weight.

How much caffeine is in regular and decaf?

Decaf is short for decaffeinated coffee. It’s coffee from coffee beans that have had at least 97% of their caffeine removed. United States standard for decaf coffee is 97% caffeine free; the European Standard is 99% caffeine free.

A six-ounce cup of regular coffee typically has around 95 to 200 milligrams of caffeine, (depending on the Arabica- Robusta mix). According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Decaf coffee typically only has between two and 15 milligrams per six-ounce cup, according to the FDA.

FAQ’s Should I Buy Whole Bean or Pre-Ground?

There are three things to consider when purchasing whole beans or ground: (1) Your brewing method, (2) how much time and patience you have, and (3) how much and how frequently do your drink coffee.

For the drip brew method, (common to average coffee makers), and manual pour-overs, pre-ground coffee might be the one for you because it has the level of coarseness that’s perfect for these machines.

Opting for whole bean coffee means you must prepare everything yourself, from calibrating the grind size according to your brewing method, to measuring the right amount of beans, to the actual grinding, to cleaning your grinder. If you have the time and patience to do all these, you’ll find that it’s worth it.

Compared to whole bean coffee, ground coffee loses its freshness quickly, usually losing freshness after 7 days. The more exposed coffee is to oxygen, the faster it starts to go stale; and because ground coffee has much more surface area that is exposed to air, its complex flavor begins to decline after two to three weeks.

Fresh roasted coffee starts to lose freshness after 30 days.
