Fresh-Roasted Coffee Beans In the Philippines From Plain Sight Coffee Roasters

You may have the misconception that fresh is best when it comes to coffee, but this isn’t necessarily the case. At the same time, you certainly don’t want to consume stale and dull-tasting coffee. But what exactly makes coffee beans fresh? When you’re trying to find fresh-roasted coffee beans in the Philippines, or anywhere else, this is one question you’ll want to ask yourself. We give a quick guide of what “fresh-roasted coffee beans” means and how you can buy higher quality ones for your brew.

What Are Fresh-Roasted Coffee Beans?

Contrary to popular belief, knowing the roast dates alone aren’t enough to tell you if your coffee beans are good —however, they’re still an important indicator. There are other ways to tell if your coffee is roasted fresh:

Smell the Coffee Beans

Dark roasted coffee beans will typically have a glossier appearance. During the roasting process, the heat brings out the oil from the beans, effectively coating them with a shiny gloss.

Another way to check for freshness is to smell the coffee beans yourself. Fresh-roasted beans have a much more intense smell. Depending on the roast, this can range from fruity, burnt, caramelized, and the like. When touched, they also leave a residue indicating that they’re at their best aged-period for brewing.

Here at Plain Sight Coffee Roasters, we make sure that you receive your order within 10 days of the roast date. We want our customers to have the best experience, which is why we work to provide only fresh-roasted coffee beans in the Philippines.

Why Should I Buy Fresh-Roasted Coffee Beans

Knowing what makes fresh roasts special can make your brewing experience more fulfilling. Below is a quick rundown of why you should make the switch.

 

Improve The Quality of Your Brew

When coffee beans are roasted, their chemical structure also changes. The high temperatures cause the compounds, oils, and nutrients to fall apart while producing a distinct flavor. Depending on the roast level, you will get a variety of notes from your coffee beans. For example, light roasts taste more citrusy while dark roasts have a richer and sweeter flavor.

Fresh-roasted coffee beans need to undergo a period of rest to get their optimal flavor profile. Some coffee beans reach their peak within minutes after the roast, while some will need to be rested for days or even weeks before brewing.

If you want to improve the quality of your brew, always go for fresh-roasted coffee. Remember to brew them within the recommended period. Our fresh-roasted beans in the Philippines are best for brewing 14-28 days from the roast date. Choose from different blends or single-origin variants that you can enjoy at home or proudly serve to your customers.

 

Explore Different Types Of Roasts

Various coffee roasts affect the flavor and the caffeine levels of your brew. Now that you have some idea about fresh-roasted coffee beans, we can help you choose a roasting type that suits your preferences well.

Light Roast

Light Roast

Light roast coffee beans are characterized by their light brown color and non-oily surface. This is because they’re not roasted long enough for the oily substances to break through. Short roast times allow light roast beans to have a higher caffeine content and acidity.

Medium Roast

Medium roasts have a brown color and a non-oily surface just like the light roast. These are popular because of the balance of flavor, aroma, and acidity.

Medium Roast

Medium-Dark Roast

Medium-Dark Roast

As the coffee beans are exposed to higher temperatures, oils on the surface will start showing. The taste of medium-dark roast beans is richer, fuller, and less acidic compared to the other roasts.

Dark Roast

The high heat brings out visible oils on the surface of the bean. Other than a dark brown color, you will notice a sweeter taste now that the sugars in the bean have caramelized due to the exposure to the heat. Dark roast beans have the least amount of caffeine and acidity but a more pronounced smoky flavor.
