Caring For Your Coffee

Three Steps How NOT To Store Your Coffee Like a Polar Bear

Because, like many humans, polar bears store their coffee in their freezer. We know. We know. HAAAARDY HAR HAR. But it’s true. Many coffee lover’s mistakenly store their coffee in the freezer, thinking they are preserving the freshness of their coffee. Instead the extreme cold deteriorates the oils in the coffee as well as the humidity created going from cold to warm. This ruins what gives your coffee its great flavor.

1.  Don’t expose your coffee to extreme temperatures.

 Don’t store your coffee in the refrigerator, freezer or the oven.  That’s right the oven is just for cooking.

2.  Don’t expose your coffee to direct sunlight.

The sun can cause your coffee to fade in appearance and taste.  So keep your precious coffee in a non-translucent container.  Just think – Fort Knox.

3.  Don’t expose your coffee to oxygen.

Coffee is kind of like bread.  If you leave it out it will go stale.  In fact, if you don’t use it within 6 to 8 weeks it will start to go stale too.  So, oxygen deprivation is extremely important to maintaining the quality of your coffee.

Bonus Tip:

You can store your coffee in it’s packaging.  Just place the packaging in a zip-lock bag and keep in a cool dry place.

Unlock Your Senses!

Unlock your senses to the 800 flavor compounds of coffee!  We guarantee the best taste and this is  how – by roasting only the best 1% of all the shade-grown coffee beans in the world!  The Top 1% is a promise that governs your partnership with Political Grounds Coffee.

Certified Organic

Every single Coffee bean you receive is Certified Organic by the United States Department of Agriculture. This gives you a safer and healthier coffee bean that tastes significantly better than the rest.  Coffee that’s grown in the shade tastes better because it grows slower.  You see, when industrialized coffee production came about in the mid-20th century, coffee began to be grown in rows in an open field directly under the sun.  Kind of like corn.  So the coffee grew faster and developed a bitter, acidic taste and brought huge profits for big coffee corporations.  In addition to growing coffee directly in the sun, big coffee companies also began using pesticides to increase their yield.  This wouldn’t be so bad except that coffee is one of the most absorbent crops on the planet.  So the coffee tree absorbs these pesticides and they chemically become part of the coffee beans growth.  Besides the fact that these pesticides are cancer-causing, they also change the flavor of the beans.  With Certified Organic you are guaranteeing the Top 1% flavor.

Drink USDA Certified Organic Coffee

Not only should you drink USDA Certified Organic Coffee, but also shade-grown coffee.  Shade-grown coffee grows slower and develops less acidity, while giving the coffee a smoother taste.  Acidity can cause all sorts of health problems.  Drinking shade-grown coffee not only tastes better, but it’s healthier for you!  Why is shade-grown coffee so rare?  Well, big coffee companies have figured out ways to make the coffee tree grow in conditions previously unfavorable.  What this does is change the flavor and makeup of coffee.  We’re about a better life!

Shade Grown Helps Protect Your Body From Caffeine Abuse

Research concerning caffeine abuse has been around for years. Many of us ignore warnings of increased risk of hypertension and insomnia, but there are also mental health concerns related to caffeine abuse. Recent studies point to worsening of depression and schizophrenia. Shade-grown coffee, however, grows slower and develops a better amount of caffeine. Protect yourself from the harsh side effects of caffeine abuse with shade-grown coffee.

Shade Grown Helps Protect Your Esophagus from Cancer

Another threat to your health is heartburn and acid reflux.  Both of these conditions damage the lining of your esophagus and can even lead to esophageal cancer.  Shade-grown coffee protects you from this by containing low acidity.  Since acidity and caffeine contribute to increased heartburn and acid reflux, shade-grown coffee can help to protect your esophagus.

Your Taste Buds Will Thank-You For Drinking Shade-Grown Coffee!

While You’re Sipping on the Best Coffee…

Know that not only do big coffee companies spray flavor killing pesticides, they also short-change the farmers who work hard to bring us coffee.  Because big coffee companies dictate what they will pay, coffee farmers are forced to live on an unlivable wage.  This results in 21st century slavery.  When coffee farmers are paid a fair, livable wage we benefit.  Because they aren’t reliant on big coffee companies, coffee farmers can do what’s best for the coffee.  They don’t have to produce huge yields using pesticides and bitter sun-grown coffee, they can focus on producing coffee that tastes great because it’s grown naturally

Above Fairly Traded coffee provides the coffee grower with a way to maintain his superior crop and provide for his family.  So while you are providing superior coffee for your family or friends, you are also partnering in a process that provides for the coffee grower’s family and you can rest easy knowing our farmers receive an above-fair-trade wage for the remarkable coffee experience they help deliver in every cup.

3 Absurdly Insane Things About Decaf

1. The Majority of Decaf is Chemically Decaffeinated.

The Decaf Coffee market is comprised of nearly 60% chemical decaffeination.  So what, right?  Well coffee is chemically decaffeinated by soaking it in the carcinogen, Methylene Chloride.  That’s right carcinogenic — or in other words — cancer causing.

2. Methylene Chloride is Used in Aerosol Sprays, Paint Remover, and Dry Cleaning

To give you a more complete picture of Methylene Chloride, you should know some of its other uses. Methylene Chloride, or Dichloromethane as it is also known, is a component in Aerosol Sprays, Paint Strippers and Dry Cleaning.  This chemical compound not only causes cancer, but it is also thought to exacerbate respiratory issues. “Hmmm,” paint stripper, “cough.”

3. Water Processed Decaf coffee is safe and removes 99.6% of the caffeine.

But you still need coffee, right?  Water process decaf removes caffeine from your coffee beans using nothing but water.  Water Process decaf methods like the Swiss Water Process remove 99.6% of the caffeine.  Unless you want beans soaked in cancer causing chemicals, you should only drink Water Process decaf like Swiss Water decaf process.
