Know Your Coffee

Made from a special house blend of Central and Western Valley arabica beans, this light roasted coffee has noticeable fruity and floral notes. Because the Central Valley's beans are grown at high altitudes, they are higher in acidity - a quality that brings out the best aromatic characteristics of a coffee. For this reason, you will notice an aroma of freshly sliced limes that is coupled with a tart acidity upon the first sip. The flavor notes include caramel and apricot and even sometimes a hint of malt.

Soft, well-balanced and full-bodied, this light roast accentuates the best qualities of the blend of beans and makes for an ideal morning cup. This is a 'sophisticated' blend that will maintain its flavor from start to finish.

Questions Answers

An unopened bag will stay fresh for one year. Once a bag of coffee has been opened, it will stay fresh for up to 6 months if stored properly.
In the short term, keeping your coffee in its original bag, sealed tight and kept in a cool and dry place is always a best practice for coffee storage. For long term, it is possible to store your coffee in the freezer, however, once removed from the freezer, store it in airtight container in a cool and dark place.
The packaging we use for our Café Britt coffees is a durable triple-ply material that protects the coffee from sunlight and oxygen. Each bag has a one-way valve that allows gases that are produced during roasting to escape and prevents any air or oxygen from entering the bag.
Don’t worry! Your coffee is fine. What you’ve experienced are the effects of subjecting our one-way valved bags to a non-pressurized atmosphere, such as the baggage compartment of an airplane. When our bags are subjected to a low-pressure environment, the gas inside the bag expands and exits through the one-way valve. A properly functioning valve won’t let the gas re-enter and “inflate” the bag as it was before. This effect preserves the quality and freshness of the coffee. Sometimes, as the coffee continues “breathing” and expelling gases, the packages may even inflate again. But it’s perfectly fine to store your coffee in these brick-hard packages until you’re ready to use them.
Strictly Hard Bean is part of a classification system for Costa Rican coffees cultivated 1200 meters (4000 ft.) above sea level. In Costa Rica, coffee plants that grow at this altitude produce higher quality beans that have a higher density that holds in the nutrients and flavor during roasting. At Britt though, we go above and beyond just offering you Strictly Hard Beans. We have our own classification system that ensures we’re buying the highest quality strictly hard beans available.
