Yes absolutely Dina. Anything, including coffee beans are better stored whole. This includes fruits, veggies, meats, and just about anything else you can think of.

Coffee will absolutely taste better if your grind right before brewing. There are oils on the bean that contribute to the flavor. Those oils dissipate after being ground so the closer to brew time you grind the beans the better.

I am lazy though and usually get the pre-ground stuff though even thought whole beans are much better.

Same here. It's not so much laziness but I'm pretty much brain dead first thing in the morning to even think of grinding and brewing coffee. Heehee It's preset a night before so I just crawl over to the kitchen and press a button.

I have read...but I didn't check Snopes that in the first few minutes when you wake up, you have the same functions (or lack thereof) as if are drunk.

Am I just not seeing the 'wink' graemlin?

It's true for me... It takes me a good five to ten minutes to be able to think a whole thought when I first wake up. I sleep a very very deep sleep. If the house catches fire I'm dead for sure.

not me.

i'm one of those people who wake up to an alarm clock set 7 or 8 minutes ahead.

that way i have to do a little simple mathematics to figure out how much more lazy i can be. by then, it's too late to go back to sleep.

Right now we have a pound of Zambian green beans from Sweet Marias, and some decaf green beans for evening. We forgot to roast last night and we didn't have time to roast this morning so it was tea this am.

We should have a fresh shipment of beans today or tomorrow.

In the winter I like a splash of Baileys in my coffee. Other than that it's black for me - unless it's really bad coffee and then I'll add Splenda and milk.

There aren't too many of us home roasters around. Sweet Maria's is a great source of both coffee and information. How do you roast your beans and how, and for how long, do you store them?
