The green coffee beans keep for a long while so the time to buy Monsoon Malabar Coffee or any other type of coffee does not depend on the harvest time and there is no aging process for coffee. After reaching maturity on the coffee plant, age actually is an enemy of coffee after roasting since air and moisture immediately begin to deteriorate coffee.
Q: How do you reduce cholesterol from coffee?
A: Paper coffee filters remove some of the coffee in cholesterol so I recommend that you used paper and not a metallic coffee filter which are included in some coffee makers.
Q: There is mentioned in the internet that decaf coffee affects your cholesterol level?
A: It appears that those finding did not identify the type of decaffeination process that was used that led to increases in LDL. I do know that the Swiss Water Process is a patented, non-chemical method of decaffeination, and is the best choice for gourmet coffee. Most of the major brands are chemically decaffeinated, even if it says “naturally decaffeinated” on the container. It is possible that some of the chemicals used by other brands led to the increases in cholesterol in the previous findings. I do not believe that a water process will increase it.
Paper coffee filters remove some of the coffee in cholesterol so I recommend that you used paper and not a metallic coffee filter which are included in some coffee makers.
Q: I had a question about decaf promoting heart problems. Is the decaf coffee you have better in that regard? Also the process of decaf is it the swiss water metnod?
A: The Swiss Water Process is a better method of decaffeination because it leaves more of the natural coffee flavors. The issue with heart problems usually has to do with amount of caffeine consumption. Most decaffeination processes do a good job removing caffeine but the method we use is the best one in our opinion because it leaves the coffee with a better flavor.
Question from a customer:
I eagerly await my Peaberry Coffee beans….I’m “addicted” to them…!!! Is it O.K. to keep my “extra” unopened bag of beans in the freezer????I have heard yes and no…What’s your opinion???
Thanks for your question. Yes we recommend that you keep your unopened bags of coffee beans in the freezer. That has much better preservation than at room temperature. We do not recommend that you store them in the refrigerator because the moisture will deteriorate the coffee at a faster rate.
If you have a questions please send it to us at our contact us page.
Another good question from a customer.
Are real hazelnuts used in the flavoring or just a flavoring substitute? The reason why I ask is because my allergy doctor informed me that I am allergic to hazelnuts and to stay away. I am wondering if the hazelnut flavoring is something I should avoid.
We do not use real hazelnuts in our flavoring. We only use natural substitute ingredients for our coffee flavoring. All of our gourmet flavored coffees are all made with all natural ingredients and have no sugar, no calories and no allergens. For me information and to order please visit our Hazelnut Flavored Coffee page.
Another good question received from a customer.
Does flavored coffee have sugar? What are the ingredients in flavored coffee?
Our Volcanica gourmet flavored coffees are all made with all natural ingredients and have no sugar, no calories and no allergens. The ingredients are just fine fresh roasted coffee beans and the particular coffee flavor additive that is sprayed over the beans and then mixed in by tumbling them in a special container.
We have had some questions and confusion from customers regarding Celebes Kalossi Coffee and how it relates to Sulawesi Coffee. Simply put Celebes Kalossi Coffee is another name for Sulawesi Coffee.
Sulawesi or Celebes Kalossi Coffee is grown by the very old Toraja region coffee trees on the island of Sulawesi located located in Indonesia. Celebes Kalossi Coffee is named from the Island of Celebes which was the old Dutch name for the island.
Another good question from a customer.
Say I have a question that I hope you may be able to answer for me: I will be going camping – what would be the best way to make my coffee? No electricity or propane, just camp fire. I’m thinking maybe a french press?
You got it. I go camping often as well and the French Press is the way to go. Boil the water over a camp fire then four minutes over your coffee in the French Press. Don’t forget to grind your coffee beans before you leave.
We live in South Florida and grinding a week’s worth of coffee is also on our hurricane preparedness check list. I learned after one storm that left us without power for a couple of days and no coffee. It was almost as bad as not having water.
Have you ever wondered why your coffee maker that use to quickly make a pot coffee now seems to take forever? Well you are not imagining things. The problems is with lime and other water deposit build ups that slow down the heating process and flow of water.
The solutions is to buy a special coffee pot solvent at your local merchandise store. Wal-Mart sells Brew Rite Cleaner for a about $4 and it will last you for about three cleanings. Just follow the directions and flush out the coffee maker with water. You need to clean your coffee maker anytime you see it starts to slow down or every 4 months depending on how often you use it.
Your coffee maker will be brewing again like new. The most important part is that your fresh gourmet coffee will then start to taste better than before.
