For best results: Your taste buds are the best judge on how to make the best cup of coffee; so experiment until you find what you like. The fresher the coffee, the better the taste; buy only what you will use within 2 to 4 weeks. Keep it in an airtight glass or glazed ceramic container, perhaps in the fridge, but definitely away from direct sunlight and heat. Be sure your brewing water tastes good; try filtered or bottled water if it doesn't. Measure water and coffee accurately every time. Drink it within 20 minutes after brewing, or store it in a thermal container to keep it hot and fresh for longer periods of time. Clean (decalcify) your coffeemaker frequently.
The Fair Trade Certified label guarantees: A fair price, Quality products, and Care for the environment. Look for coffees with this label.
