What is whole bean coffee?

Whole bean coffee is simply when the coffee beans have been deseeded, dried, and roasted, but not ground into a powder. The coffee beans are left whole and must be ground at home before making them into a cup of coffee. Because whole bean coffee is ground so close to the time of brewing, it tends to taste fresher and more complex than the pre-ground coffee you can buy.

Buy whole bean coffee and you can have a perfectly fresh batch of coffee at any time. With whole bean coffee, you get more flexibility and control. You can use different methods of brewing to achieve different results. By modifying the size of the grind you can affect the flavor of the finished coffee. The finer the grind, the slower the water will pass through and the stronger the coffee will be.

If stored properly, whole bean coffee stays fresher for longer. You’ll need a coffee grinder if you want to buy whole bean coffee, but it’s absolutely worth it. Grinding your own coffee will fill your kitchen with the most amazing aroma. We bring you the very best whole bean coffee to awaken your senses and the rest of you too!

Facts about whole bean coffee

  • Coffee is thought to date back to 800 A.D. The legend goes that some goats in Ethiopia ate the fruits of the Coffea plant, and the goat herders noticed the effect it had upon them. The goat herder shared his findings with local monks who then used the plant to develop a drink that was found to keep them awake for longer.
  • A cup of black coffee has only around 1 calorie! No need to worry about your coffee habit if you’re looking to lose weight.
  • The two main varieties of coffee are Arabica and Robusta, though there are subtypes of each of these beans. Arabica coffee beans have a smoother, sweeter taste, with notes of chocolate. Robusta is stronger and harsher, with a slightly bitter taste.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does whole bean coffee taste?

How whole bean coffee tastes depends firstly on the type of bean you are using. There are 4 types of coffee beans: Arabica, Robusta, Excelsa, and Liberica. Each has a different taste profile. Arabica is smooth and complex, without any bitterness. Robusta is stronger and slightly bitter. Liberica beans are less common, with a nutty and woody flavor. Excelsa coffee beans have fruity flavors and a great depth of flavor.

How whole bean coffee tastes also depends on how you grind and brew it. There are so many options for how to make your best whole bean coffee. Buy whole bean coffee online from PlantX and start experimenting to find your favorite method!

How long does coffee stay fresh after brewing?

After brewing, your coffee will taste best if consumed within 30 minutes or stored for up to 4 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator (though, again, it won’t taste as good!). Whilst it won’t be unsafe to drink after that first 30 minutes, it won’t taste quite as good because the coffee will continue to oxidize. But, it’s safe to drink coffee several hours after it’s brewed, when stored at room temperature unless it contains milk or creamer. Cold-brewed coffee will last for longer in the fridge than hot-brewed coffee. In an airtight container, cold brew coffee will keep for up to 7 days in the fridge.

Is coffee harmful to teeth?

Like any drink, coffee can affect your teeth if consumed in excess. Drinking a lot of coffee may lead to discoloration of the teeth. This is due to “tannins” which are also found in drinks like wine and tea. Tannins can cause color compounds to stick to your teeth, which may leave a yellowish stain over time.

However, coffee staining is easy to remove. A regular clean at your dentist will remove much of the discoloration. Using a whitening toothpaste or whitening strips can also help reduce discoloration. An electric toothbrush provides more cleaning power than a manual one. And don’t forget to brush twice a day! 

Does whole bean coffee cause anxiety?

If whole bean coffee is consumed in excess, it may exasperate sensations interpreted as anxiety. This is particularly true for those who already suffer from anxiety. Symptoms of anxiety may include restlessness, increased heart rate, and trouble sleeping.

It is easy to avoid caffeine-induced anxiety by consuming only the best whole bean coffee in moderation. It is thought that up to 4 cups of coffee per day is a healthy amount, but if you are sensitive to caffeine this will be too much. The ideal amount will vary from person to person so act with caution and find the caffeine level that works best for you. If you have any concerns, speak to your doctor.
