The Best Bags of Coffee Beans You Can Buy Online
There are endless ways to ruin a good cup of coffee (the grind is wrong, the pour was not stable enough, the water is too cold), but the surest way to make a bad coffee is to use bad coffee beans. All the sophisticated coffee-making devices in the world can't turn junk into deliciousness. Money spent outfitting a kitchen with fancy gadgets would be wasted if you're bringing beans home from the supermarket. It's something I've learned the hard way since I fell in love with coffee after a roommate broke a Chemex when he was in college nearly a decade ago.
Choosing your beans is really where the fun begins in the coffee-making process. Putting your foot in the door may seem like a great undertaking - I once received a bean bag with the "avuncular" tasting note, but it's a ultimately satisfying endeavor. Once you have the platform, you can start to properly experiment with what you like. There are endless permutations between regions, varieties, and the way beans are processed. For example, a coffee from Ethiopia, typically very sweet and fruity, will taste very different from the beans from a farm in Central America, which generally produces coffee with more nutty and chocolatey notes. You get real funk with a 'natural' process, where beans are allowed to dry and ferment on raised beds, and a more predictable and balanced cup of washed coffee, where coffees are pulped (remember: coffees are a cherry and grains are in the center!) through a wet mill. Look, we're already having fun. But finding the best coffees requires more than just walking into local specialty cafes and throwing a dart.
