Strictly Coffee has a strictly fresh policy.
No, we're not going to get fresh with you, but we are full of beans … and we prefer them fresh!
KEEP IT FRESH
Whatever your choice of bean, method of grinding, or kettle of choice, your beans are best enjoyed within two weeks of roasting. Thereafter some of the aroma and taste dissipates and if not used within a month, the original characteristics are lost. Within two months of roasting, beans can be classified as stale.
The freshness is what sets apart purchasing your whole beans from a micro-roasting, speciality roaster like Strictly Coffee, from buying your coffee at more commercial outlets. Specialty coffees are delivered whole and in quantities conducive to consuming the entire stock while still fresh. Due to the personalised nature of our specialty coffees, not only can you obtain single- or unblended coffees, but a much broader variety of blends can be achieved than that on offer from the commercial coffee market.
The coffees are supplied in a variety of packaging, ranging from portion packs ground for filter machines (eg 90g) to beans for espresso machines in kilogram packs. For the retail market, a foil pack with non-return valve ensures that the coffee stays fresh for longer on the shelf.

THE ROASTING PROCESS
Roasting is not an action, but an art. Although there are many ways in which to use the coffee plant – from berries to husks and even leaves – the success of coffee in the modern world lies in our ability (the discovery) to roast the beans.
A delicate process in which beans must be heated and kept ‘moving’ until they are not too hot, not too burnt or not too over exposed. An artisan roaster will know the exact moment at which the transformation of the green bean is complete – when it begins to crackle and it delivers a brown bean, almost double in size - rich in aroma and flavour. Beans are then cooled and stored, ready for you to collect and enjoy.
