Hey you! 👋 follow me and my coffee journey here —-> @baybeans where you'll see less proud dad pics and more coffee pics, I promise 😂
I am your typical instant coffee person, but after I received a coffee grinder for a present I thought I would try grinding my own. I went online to see what coles and woolworths had when I ran into your article online. Thank goodness I did, based on your article I had no idea how different in-store beans could be in relation to freshly roasted beans that Baybeans supply.
I bought 1kg of your Decaf and 1kg of your Caffeinated coffee. The freshness was fantastic and the flavour was unbelievable, it is different from the instant coffee I have been drinking until now. As different as a colorblind person suddenly seeing in colour for the first time.
The aroma after opening the pack was intense. 2kg is a lot for me to get through and still be able to retain that ultimate freshness so I repurposed my home brew plastic bottles and filled them up with the excess coffee beans. Then I pressured the bottles to 60 psi with CO2 (they can take up to 100 psi), then squeezed them and regassed it one more time to get maximum CO2 saturation. That removes up to 96% to 99.9% of the oxygen and creates a pristine environment that prevents the beans from oxidizing and in the absence of oxidizing stays premium fresh. Also because I am at home and not on my yacht, I then place the bottle with coffee in the freezer chest. I am very satisfied that I always have the best tasting beans ready to grind for my perfect cup of coffee.
I pre-boil the water for my Mocha Pot so when it percolates on the gas stove it does not burn the coffee and I tamp down the medium ground coffee so the flavour is extracted to the maximum. I have been so inspired that I have bought a camping 9 cup percolator and a double insulated stainless steel french press that keeps the coffee warm for up to an hour.
Coffee is not just an experience it is an adventure. Thanks so much for the care and attention you give to your coffee.
