FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How can I stay informed on new coffee offerings, seasonal offerings, or exciting news?
A: Subscribe to our newsletter at the bottom right footer of every page. We publish a newsletter monthly that has all the Vesta Coffee Roasters updates!
Q: How long is your coffee good for?
A: We bag our coffee right after roasting into nitrogen flushed bags, meaning that our coffee is technically good until about 90 from the roast date. We think it shines right at about 20-30 days off roast!
Q:The fresher the coffee, the better – right? Well, yes… but also no, it’s important for coffee to degas and here’s why.
A: When you roast coffee, gases – including a lot of carbon dioxide – form inside the bean. Escaping gases can affect brewing by creating bubbles and air pockets disrupting contact between coffee grinds and water leading to uneven extraction.
Q: How long should the coffee rest for?
A: We recommend letting the coffee rest for at least 5 days after the roast date, however our coffee really starts to shine around 20-30 days off roast. Nitrogen flushed bags help lock the awesomeness inside each and every bag.
Q: What coffees do you offer that are organic?
A: Gersi Orsi - Ethiopia (Natural), Agusto Calle - Peru
These are what we currently offer, changes throughout the year. Most are harvested with organic methods. Reach out to our team if you have any questions about specific coffees!
Q: Why is your coffee so expensive?
A: All of our coffee is specialty grade which is drastically different from commodity coffee. We truly value offering coffees with full traceability to our customers. Above market value offers the ability for farmers to continue to grow their product while receiving a livable wage.
Q: What’s the best way to up my coffee game?
A: Seeing as coffee is 98% water, starting with high quality water will often be the best and cheapest way to upgrade your home coffee game.
