Are You Purchasing Stale Coffee?

All of Mrs. Bryant's Coffees are roasted weekly and are available only in the whole bean form. Many of our customers ask us why we don't grind our coffee. Our answer - we refuse to sell stale coffee.

What many people don't realize is that coffee will go stale within 1 week of grinding. If stored in whole bean form, at room temperature, in a pantry, Mrs. Bryant's coffee beans will stay fresh for up to 3 months. You can even use Mrs. Bryant's coffee in a K-cup system. Simply grind the beans and fill your K-cup blank. So, stop buying pre-ground, stale coffee. Invest in a grinder, grind your own, and enjoy a fresh cup of coffee!

As you might know March was an incredibly busy month for Mrs. Bryant's Specialty Foods & Sauces.
