Making Better Food

When I started cooking at home more, it occurred to me that I didn't really know what I was doing. I was essentially throwing together meals without a lot of thought, and it was really discouraging. My family didn't always love the food either, which made my cooking seem like a waste of time. I wanted to improve my cooking skill set, so I started focusing on making better food for my family. This blog is all about making better dishes and using higher-quality ingredients. You never know, eating better might help you to feel better and keep your family healthy.

3 Things To Do To Store Your Whole Bean Coffee

Buying whole roasted coffee beans can give you the best possible coffee you can get at home. Part of that is because you are going to grind it right before you make it, so you don't have to worry about anything oxidizing or any oils being lost. But, if you invest in good Colombian whole bean coffee, you need to make sure that you can store it properly. You don't want to go to make your morning coffee and find out that your beans don't taste as well as they should. So how do you store your coffee beans?

 Dark

When you store your coffee beans, you want to keep them in the dark. The light can affect the taste of your coffee. So you want to keep the beans in a cabinet or in a container that will block out light. For example, some jars are amber-colored or dark-colored. You can put your coffee beans in one of those jars, and the light will have a hard time getting to the beans, especially if you put them in a cabinet.

Airtight

You also want to make sure that you are storing them in an airtight container. The more air that gets to your coffee beans, the faster they lose their freshness and the faster their taste will degenerate. Look for containers that close tightly. Glass jars are a good option here, especially if the lid has a rubber gasket around it. That will keep a good, tight seal, keeping the air away from your coffee. If you get a large enough amount of beans, you may want to put some of them in a vacuum seal bag and seal it. Doing that will make sure there is no air at all reaching your coffee beans until you open the bag. 

Cool

You also need to keep your coffee beans nice and cool. Don't store them on your counter near your stove or in a place that gets a lot of afternoon sun, even if they are in a dark-colored, airtight jar, because they will heat up. A nice dark pantry in a cool part of your kitchen can be the best place to store your coffee beans.

You should buy whole bean Colombian coffee if you want the best coffee. Just make sure to store it properly so that you will get the most out of your coffee possible. For more information on how to store a 2 lb bag whole bean Colombian coffee, contact a company near you.
