We care about coffee! The Coffee Beanery has the highest standards in the industry when it comes to providing the finest coffees in the world. We believe the real artistry in producing the perfect bean is in the right roast for each variety. Our master roaster roasts each of our coffees to the peak of its taste potential — choosing from a wide range of roasts. The result? Some of our coffees are slightly sweet. Others have a bit of snap.
Coffee Beanery only sells the highest grades of Arabica coffees—only 3% of the world’s Arabica crop qualifies as Specialty Coffee. Arabica beans are delicate and flavorful and sell at higher prices because of their quality and limited availability.
Most decaffeination processes use chemical solvents like methylene chloride and ethyl acetate to strip caffeine molecules from the green coffee bean. It can also strip out a lot of the flavor!
We care about your health so we ONLY use Swiss Water Process Decaffeinated Coffee (SWP), which uses water from the
- Always start with fresh coffee beans.
- Use the correct grind for the particular brewing method used. If possible, grind close to the brew time.
|Type of Grind||Brewing Method||Looks Like|
|Coarse||Percolator/French Press||Chunky, Kosher Salt|
|Medium||Auto/Drip Methods||Coarse Sand|
|Fine||Espresso||Slightly finer than granulated sugar|
|Very Fine||Turkish Ibrik||Almost Powdery|
- Use fresh, cold, filtered water. Hot water from the tap is flat and stale and usually has chlorine in it. If using water from the tap, let it run for a few seconds before filling your coffee pot.
- We recommend one to two level tablespoons per six ounces (one cup) cold water for regular-strength coffee. Adjust slightly for individual taste preferences.
- Serve coffee immediately after brewing.
- Freshly brewed gourmet coffee allowed to sit on a warmer will begin losing flavor immediately. The longer it is held, the less desirable it becomes. Brewed coffee stays fully flavorful for only 20 minutes.
- Never reheat cooled coffee or allow it to sit on a heat source-the coffee will lose its flavor quickly if the brew begins to boil.
Paper filters are super convenient, but coffee purists will tell you that there is a flavor difference to be had by using metal and/or gold re-usable filters. What you lose with a paper filter is flavor oils and colloids (brewed coffee that is not fully dissolved) resulting in a slightly less-bodied cup of joe. Be green, go gold!
The main difference between the two types of
Coffee Beanery coffee
Contrary to popular belief, the fridge is not a good place to store your beans/grounds. Coffee is incredibly absorbent and will pick up flavors of food and other items nearby (Ever had onion-flavored coffee?). The change in temperature will also zap out some of the

All of our coffee is certified Kosher Pareve with the exception of Crème Brulee and Sinful Sundae which are certified Kosher Dairy.
An 8 oz serving of brewed coffee will have between 100 and 150 milligrams of caffeine, depending on brewing method and variety of coffee.
According to the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA), they contain the same amount of caffeine.

The moment that coffee beans are ground, you start losing flavor and aroma. The purpose of grinding the beans is to create a larger surface area that will release the flavor and oils to the surrounding hot water. If coffee is prematurely exposed to air, it leaves less flavor for the brew.
If you buy ground beans, we recommend brewing your beans within 2 weeks to achieve the freshest flavor.
For the very best flavor, buy whole coffee beans and grind with a burr grinder moments before brewing.
Yes! We do have Singlicious Servings to be used in the Keurig coffee maker (not to be used in the Vue or Keurig 2.0 coffee maker). Due to the limited amount of flavors available we also sell the reusable filter which allows you to grind many more flavors.
Start with a coarser grind similar to a French press grind
Experiment with grinds similar to drip brewing
Avoid a fine espresso grind setting that could clog the screen or result in poor extraction
Place the filter basket in the filter holder and screw on the lid.
Place the assembled filter holder in the brewer.
Lower the handle and brew as you normally do.
After brewing, lift the handle, remove the filter holder, unscrew the cap and throw away the grounds. You may need to wait a minute as the holder will be very hot.
Rinse the filter basket and replace the original filter basket.
