TnT Coffee Roasters

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.

For all of you who enjoy TnT Coffee! We will be roasting on Wednesday evening this week! I get to play GI Joe this weekend with some of our future leaders!

Who reading this remembers GI Joe? I’m talking the barbie size GI Joe! Man those were the days, planning a war in my parents back yard! Blowing things up! Romin the Rooster!Well times have changed I’m often planning a peace keeping mission with the YardBirds we have roaming our property! I tell you these roosters can get mean! Well enough about chickens!Be sure to order your favorite coffee before tomorrow night! This will ensure you have Fresh Roasted coffee for this coming week!

Well we at TnT Coffee Roasters have been very busy with preparations for Spring and transition. With spring comes new life! We are excited to announce a few choices to our customers. We currently have three coffees available for you to choose!

We have added another Ethiopian favorite from the Sidamo region. This coffee comes from Oromia Coffee Farmers Cooperative Union (OCFCU). A group of small-farmers owned cooperative union which has members from all coffee growing areas in Oromia regional state. The Union pays 70% of its net profit back to the cooperatives, who in turn pay 70% of their profit to the member farmers. Farmers benefit by being paid three times in one season, allowing for greater stability. This strategy of support has enabled OCFCU to grow from 34 primary cooperatives representing 22,691 household farmers to 217 primary cooperatives representing 200,000 household farmers.

What is amazing is when you purchase coffee from TnT Coffee Roasters you are supporting this Union of farmers who have the same passion for coffee as we do here in little ole Texas.

Another we are trying out is from Honduras. Today, more than 100,000 families across Honduras are involved in coffee production. 95% of these are small-scale farmers and 70% farm on fewer than 2 hectares (representing some 30% of the country’s total production). The vast majority of farmers (95% or more) rely on family labour for all aspects of agricultural and harvest labour. Perhaps most notable (and unusual for Central America, where an aging population presents real challenges to long-term sustainability for coffee), the average age of producers in Honduras is falling. With an average of 46 years old, the composite Honduran coffee farmer is 10 years younger than they were 10 years ago. Barring the Benjamin Button effect, several factors have aligned in keeping younger people in coffee, including investment and promotion in accessing speciality markets.

This is where TnT Coffee Roasters comes into play! Yes you are apart of supporting the Honduran Families with every purchase! Our Honduran coffee comes from a couple who has taken out the middle man and has established relationships with the farmers.

As you can see I am very excited to bring these coffees to you! Take your time and read more about each coffee and the countries they come from.

Until next time! Have a blessed week!
