Guide To Buying Ground Coffee As A Gift

One of the most influential drinks in our lives is coffee. You can give a gift of coffee to a girlfriend, a parent, friend, and anyone really as to either expose a coffee lover to a new level of coffee or to impress a coffee aficionado. There are some very important details to consider when buying a ground coffee as a gift so that you give the freshest most delicious ground coffee you can find.

Where is the coffee from?

Coffee beans grow really well in mountainous tropical areas. Places like Brazil, Hawaii, Jamaica, and of course Columbia make some of the best coffee beans in the world. They are also major exporters of coffee all over the world. The Brazilian coffee bean is an excellent choice for giving a gift of ground coffee as there are both chocolate and caramel flavors to the beans as well as creaminess to the flavor.

How fresh are the coffee beans?

Freshness is key for a coffee bean. You want to have a bag of beans as close to the time that they were roasted as you can. A valve in the coffee bean bag is an excellent indication the beans are fresh, because coffee beans give off carbon dioxide after they have been roasted, so a good bag of coffee beans always has a valve on it to let the CO2 out. A sell by date always helps to you. You want to buy one that is the farthest away from the day you are buying the beans.

From boldness to flavor

Coffee beans are always judged on their boldness. A coffee bean can produce a mild cup of coffee to extremely bold roasted coffee bean that satisfies only a bold lover’s taste. It is food to know what the person you are buying for likes. You do not want to give a bold ground coffee to someone who likes mild coffee. The coffee will be too strong for them. It is best to choose a plain coffee and then let the coffee lover put in the flavors they love.

When to grind the beans?

If you are not sure whether the person you are buying the gift for has a coffee bean grinder, you can do one of two things. You can either buy them a small coffee grinder to go along with the coffee beans you have chosen for them or you can stop at the grocery store or a gourmet coffee shop and ask if you can grind the coffee beans you have brought in.

The bag is everything

A great looking coffee bean bag can really make a ground coffee gift even better. As mentioned earlier make sure the bag has the little vent on it. You want to make sure you do nit just buy a good looking coffee bean bag and not a good coffee. Get both an excellent bag of coffee beans in a good looking coffee bean bag.

Where to buy the best beans?

Believe it or not the large grocery stores have actually improved their selection of excellent coffee, so you can check the coffee isle in your grocery store for both coffee beans and a nice selection of ground coffee from around the world. A local coffee shop is always an option for good roasted coffee beans. The internet is also a good source for having ground coffee sent to your door or the person’s door who you are giving the gift to. Gourmet shops as well, usually have a nice selection of ground coffee and coffee beans, but always watch that they have not sat in the barrels for too long.

K-Cups and fresh ground coffee

The newest trend of course is the K-Cup machines, the best coffee maker for a gift. If you are buying a ground coffee for a person who has a K-Cup machine, you can share with them how fresh even their K-cup can be. The grocery store sells K-Cups that have lids. You can make a gift with a beautiful fresh bag of coffee beans or ground coffee and include the refillable rubber K-Cup. You can handwrite a small card to explain all your friend or loved one will do is fill the K-Cup to the indicated line and then close the lid. The refillable K-Cup will fit right in the K-cup machine and then a delicious cup of coffee will come out of the K-cup machine.
