There are a million coffee brands and some come from the same farmers, but are marketed differently. That’s why the prize sometimes were different too. Coffee after all is a culture onto itself, some say an addiction.

Here are things to consider before buy coffee brand :
  • The Roast : Ensure you choose your favourite roast. Find out other coffee roast if you are not sure to that brand.
  • The Country of Origin : There are different flavors from different countries due to growing conditions.
  • Arabica and Robusta Coffee Beans are different. Find Out which one is your favourite.
  • The Grinder : What kind of beans do you require if you have a burr coffee grinder or a blade coffee grinder?
  • Freshness : How long have the beans been in their package?
  • The Water : Do you have a charcoal filter in your coffee maker, do you use already filtered water or tap water. These all change the taste of the coffee. I highly disapprove of using distilled water.makes the coffee flat.
  • The Price : Are you paying a reasonable amount? Sometimes price does not equal quality.
  • Fair Trade Coffee : Are you environmentally and socially attune?
  • Organic Coffee : Do the coffee beans have the organic coffee stamp of approval symbol and not just words.
  • Ordering Coffee Online : Are the shipping fees expensive? If you ordered a bulk order would the fees be less? Does the site have a secure payment system? What are the returns policy?
