Whole Beans or Ground Coffee - Which Is Best and Why?

What's the best way to get your coffee? You can either buy whole beans and grind them yourself, or opt for pre-ground varieties.

The process of deciding which option is right for you will depend on how much time (and/or money) that suits your schedule; however there are some other factors too!

Coffee Freshness Matters

There's no better way to start your day than with a fresh cup of coffee. But did you know that grinding too soon can reduce the quality?

Freshness is key when it comes down choosing what kind or roast, flavor profile and brewing method so make sure not only do they have great taste but also stay fresh as well!

Whole beans wins the freshness factor

Whole beans are more delicate than ground coffees because they have a smaller surface area. This means that whole bean coffee can stay fresh much longer, so it's best if you store them in an airtight container or vacuum pack for storage!

OK Coffee First is known for having the freshest gourmet coffees online because they're packed with vacuum tight storage and shipped immediately after!

How fast do you use your coffee beans?

If you're going through your coffee beans quickly, ordering the whole bean and grinding just before brewing is recommended. As we mentioned above because of their smaller surface area when ground up into powder form they have an increased chance at staying fresh longer than pre-ground coffees do which will allow for more servings from one batch depending on how many people are drinking it or if there's any leftovers!

Do you use a modern coffee machine?

French Presses, single-serve machine like a Keurig are all great for making coffee. However our coarse French press grind is preferred because it allows water to stay in contact with grounds longer without causing over extraction which leads too much bitterness or sourness when brewing correctly on other types of appliance/machines.

Whole beans give you the most control over your coffee

Whole bean coffees are the ultimate in control, since you can grind them to suit your preferred method of preparation. If it's a French press day tomorrow then simply grind up some beans for that instead! Grind your own beans if you want complete control over all aspects, from type and quantity down right through how much water goes into it!

If you just want a quick cup of coffee - use pre-ground coffee beans

Would you like your coffee quick and easy? If so, pre-ground beans are for YOU! Just be aware that not all stores carry this product. You'll want to check before buying anything else at the grocery store or gas station since they might sell only whole-bean coffees in order of convenience purposes (and because we know how busy life gets).
