The best way to enjoy your TnT Fresh Roasted Coffee is to order whole bean coffee.
Roasted coffee beans continue to emit CO2 up to two weeks after roasting but then reverses the process and seeks to absorb the elements in its environment leading to oxidation and the beginning of a loss of freshness. No matter where or how you store your Fresh Roasted Coffee, it will begin to deteriorate after two weeks.
Roasted whole beans stored in a cool,(NOT FROZEN) dry, air-tight and dark place will help preserve your Fresh Roasted Coffee flavors.
Once the coffee is ground you have around 20 minutes before the flavors begin to deteriorate. Ground coffee is super-hygroscopic making it is very difficult to keep fresh no matter how it is stored. (i.e. it wants to absorb all the moistures and airborne aromas in the atmosphere that surround it).
So what does all this mean!
The best way to purchase TnT Fresh Roasted Coffee is whole bean.
Buy a grinder! It only takes about 2 minutes to grind your Fresh Roasted Coffee before brewing. (We will talk about brewing methods next week!)
There are two kinds of grinders for you to choose. The Blade Grinder and the Burr Grinder. Blade vs Burr? Coffee experts agree: A great cup of coffee starts with the grinder. You can have the highest-end coffee or espresso maker money can buy, but if you don’t start with an even, fresh grind from high-quality beans, you may as well save your cash.
Burr grinders are more expensive than blade units, but most experts agree that the added expense is worth it to get the most precise grind — a necessity for specialty coffees and brewing techniques like espresso, French press, pour-over, or Turkish.
However, plenty of people manage to Soldier on with a less expensive or less high-end coffee grinder and are very satisfied with the resulting brew. And don’t forget, you still need a good coffee brewing method as well. (Next Week)
We have used all of them over the years and have been using the Baratza Virtuoso Burr Grinder for years. It is on the high end for home users, but if you are looking for an even grind every time and a good cup this is the grinder you want.
If you are not wanting to spend $24.99 for your grinder you can get the KRUPS F203 Electric Spice and Coffee Grinder with Stainless Steel Blades, Black
The one I use when I’m traveling or enjoying my all expenses paid vacations from Uncle Sam I take the Hario Coffee Mill. This one is manual but it is reasonably priced at $26.75.

Hi, TnT! Thanks for this discussion on grinders. We use a Krups burr grinder that I bought for my husband several years ago. I think it was only around $50 at the time. I suppose it’t not a deluxe grade but we’re happy with it.
The other TnT! Thanks for your comment! Yes I was just looking at the Krups GX500. I have not personally used this model so your input is welcomed! I have found this model in our Amazon Store and you can purchase it at this link —> http://amzn.to/2D7Sjzu for as low as 29.99. This would be a good find and I would highly recommend you make this purchase to enjoy TnT Fresh Roasted Coffee!
