Wow, someone still sells a pound of coffee that actually weighs one pound! Impressive!

This coffee quartet was my very first woot after joining back in January. The coffee was excellent, very freshly roasted, and a great value. I especially like the Ethiopian selection, my favorite country of origin for coffee.

In for one. I'd get three if there were a good way to keep them fresh!

The only problem I have with this coffee is that everyone at work expects me to share. This will be my 3rd sampler and I've never been disappointed!

In for three 'cause that way I might actually get to enjoy some of it.

With Starbucks going for $8-9 a pound, totally worth it. Plus, we regularly get good coffee from Athens. (and a favorite beer, Depth Charge, was brewed by Terrapin with coffee from Athens. I like to think there's some kind of standard or competition to make good coffee.)

I know more about coffee than wine. I've been learning a lot here recently, and am glad to be able to give something back. The #1 most important factor in quality coffee is freshness from roast date. Does this coffee have individual roast dates on the packaging? If a bean is more than two weeks maximum from it's roast date, it is stale, and I will not drink coffee made from it. The ideal time frame for consumption is 4-10 days after roasting.

There are some great beans which are routinely ruined because they are stale. For example, Peets coffee can be great if you buy it in the Bay Area at a Peets location and it's fresh. But if you buy it nationally in a vacuum sealed bag? It can be three months old, or more.

Because of all of this, quality coffee beans will always include a roast date on the packaging. Do these beans show their roast date?

If the beans are roasted on Monday they will ship Tuesday. You want freshly roasted beans to rest a day. As I've said earlier, I've never been disappointed with 1000 faces.

Hmm..I don't care for coffee with my wine. I guess the wallet stays safe for another day.

Coming to wine.woot hoping for good wine, or at the very least wine related items and maybe some tasting foods to go with the wine and finding other crap is like waking up on christmas with no presents.

If 4-10 days from roast date is the only way you're willing to drink coffee then:
1 - you are not going to buy this coffee because even if you get it in the allotted time, you'd be pressed to drink 4 pounds of coffee in 6 days...
2 - you had to make that overbearing critique because you drink 4 pounds of coffee every 6 days and are constantly wired; you are going to buy this coffee regardless of the quality...
Just asking the question is enough of a post if you genuinely want the information more than a soapbox ;)

I rarely buy the Thursday wine.woot's, but do love their existence. I have enough trouble keeping my days straight, I run into non-wine on wine.woot and it's like a present. "Oh, my Galaxy! the week is almost over!"

Some day I'll figure out how to operate a calender. Until then though, wine.woot FTW!

Next time you should do two sets, a dark roast and a light roast set... I only buy dark roast. :P

This looks like pretty good coffee. And songbirdjhs says it does indeed have a roast date on the package, and ships promptly, which is good. You are overstating my own preference for fresh coffee - I said I will drink it up to 2 weeks from roast date, although 4-10 days is optimum.

But yes, buying 4 pounds of coffee at once is basically a bad idea unless you have a lot of people available to drink it with you, because much of it will be stale by the time you get to it. I was tempted to try this, but I will pass for exactly this reason - I can't drink it all while still fresh.

Looking forward to a case of rosé here on wine.woot sometime soon!

you can make a 40oz press pot of each, then try them as a pour over, and then as a prep method of choice. share the servings with friends so you don't die- the flavor profiles will vary greatly from one method to the next. you can also use the excess to make cold brew toddy for delicious iced coffee. the concentrate will last an additional two weeks after prep, and is a great way to deal with older coffee that would otherwise go to waste.

Looks to be high quality coffee but the 4 pounds will go stale well before I can drink it all since I average only 1 cup a day.

No. The #1 factor is roasting to the best profile of the bean. A larger screen size will disipate the volitile oils a bit slower, but is unstopable no mater storage. You are correct on peak consumption time, but the taper changing the profile is generally slower. No such thing as "stale", just evolving loss of flaver profile elements. A consistant base cupping process reveals much over time.

No way I'm able to use all four pounds before the beans go stale? anyway to preserve the one's i don't use? I mean what's the word on freezing it?

Can anyone speak to the roasting profile of these batches of coffee? I'm not a fan of the heavily roasted coffees (like Starbucks) with the flavorful oils leaking out . . . I feel like the nuances are burned/roasted out of the coffee.

Does anyone know what kind of roast is used to prepare this coffee?

But how are you able to consume 4 pounds of coffee in 4-10 days?

I do love coffee, but I dont have a place in my town to get fresh roasted, and I currently use 8 O Clock Whole Beans from Amazon. That being said, wouldnt even slightly stale roasted beans be better than what I am currently using?

Those without grinders can find OK ones (blade type) for as little as $10. These will not work for true espresso grind, but for most else, they work well. Even cheaper at thrift stores, often found unused.

javacabana.com (Miami). No added shipping, no tax, with pretty good commercial coffee (vs true high grade) for less money than 8 O'Clock. And they are the supplier, so they roast there own stuff. They even make old "can" brands such as Savarin.

If Starbuck's coffee is 8-9 dollars a pound as you state, why is this such a good deal? Do the math !!

Yes, because you are currently using totally stale beans.
