Whole Beans Are Just Better

April 16, 2021

Whether you're buying Humblemaker's single-origin or blend roasts, you have a question to resolve: Whole bean, or ground for drip?

But really, there's no question.

Whole beans are better.

Don't just take our word for it. 

HuffPost recently spoke to several brewers, and they were unanimous in their expert opinion: Flavor and aroma are two of the key components of your coffee experience, and if you buy pre-ground coffee, you're missing out on the best of both.

Why? Oxidation sets in as soon as coffee is ground, and oxidation means flavor loss.

So, what do you need to do?

  1. Buy your favorite coffee as whole beans, freshly roasted (all Humblemaker whole bean coffees are roasted to order).
  2. Get a coffee grinder. You can find them for as little as $20, and they'll last for years.
  3. Pour beans into the grinder, and grind away -- grind enough for your brew that day.
  4. Repeat daily!
