What is Single Origin Coffee?
Single origin coffee beans are primarily sourced from the same geographical location, and they are viewed as the purest form of coffee by some individuals. A strong attraction to these beans can be traced, in part, to the uniqueness they provide. Single Origin does not provide the generic flavor that many have accustomed with coffee over the years. The flavor profiles can be ranged on the opposite end of the spectrum and provide a special cup of coffee that highlight different characteristics. Many will change the way you view coffee and give you a new outlook on a beverage that does more than keep you awake. The complexities of Single Origin are far reaching and offer an adventure for the purchaser in trying a new bean from a specific region. While blends are able to cover up the lack of flavor for another bean, Single Origin is forced to stand out on its own. This is a very rewarding experience for the coffee drinker. Make some Red Clover Coffee Single Origin from around the world and try for yourself.
What is a Blend?
A blend is a combination of 2 or more coffee beans that produce a consistent flavor.These are more established than Single Origins, and can do some things Single Origin cannot.Our African Safari, for example, is a blend of 3 high grade beans from Africa and offers a mind-blowing experience.When blended together they contribute different flavor profiles into one drink to offer a custom experience for our customers.
Should I Buy “Whole Bean” or “Ground” Coffee?
What is the difference between whole bean and ground coffee? The differences go far beyond what the names suggest. Whole bean is the preferred method for many who want to have a superior cup of coffee. Here is the science behind it: When coffee is roasted it immediately starts to change in flavor, and this process continues throughout the life of the bean. It is imperative to get the freshest bean by not breaking it down further (grinding) until a cup of coffee is ready to be made. One of the reasons for this is because after the bean is roasted, it begins to emit oils. These oils are released throughout the life of the coffee. When the bean is ground, the oils released are increased at a substantial rate. Grinding also increases the surface area of the bean and which in turn allows it to oxidize further. We recommend buying whole bean coffee and grinding it as you are ready to make a cup or a pot to get the best coffee possible.
How do I store my coffee?
Your Red Clover Coffee comes in a resealable bag. Our bags are designed to let carbon dioxide release and keep flavor-stealing oxygen out. Once you have opened your coffee keep it airtight and away from light and moisture. A dark cabinet or cupboard works great! If you did not get the zippered 12 oz. bag, any airtight container will do. Storing your coffee beans in an airtight container will help maximize the freshness of your gourmet coffee.

What is the Best Way to Grind My Red Clover Coffee?
We use burr grinders versus blade grinders. The main difference? A burr grinder will uniformly crush the bean, while the blade grinder cuts them. Many, if not all, professionals prefer burr grinders to extracting the maximum amount of flavor from their beans. Please see our HOW TO MAKE COFFEE section on selecting different types of grinds for brew method.
Will Red Clover Coffee grind my coffee for me?
