Get your coffee beans ready!

How? By choosing great beans. It’s that simple. In the supermarket, you’ll see many types of beans and brands on the shelves. But how do you choose which ones are suitable for you, and which you should leave on the shelf? We will take a look at the typical purchases you can make.
Ground, Beans, or Brands?
Even choosing whole coffee beans offers a better experience, a fuller flavor and are much more affordable than buying a fresh cup of coffee on a daily basis. Check out Kirkland Coffee (from Costco) or Starbucks Coffee for a wider variety of coffee beans.
Many other wonderful brands are also available, some of which might even be in your own cupboard, some of which you might not even have looked at. Do take a look at the different coffee brands before you decide.
Can whole beans really make that difference?
In short, YES!
Once you find out about the different types of beans from around the world, you’ll really begin to wonder about what has been at the bottom of your cup for all the years before! No more instant, no more 3-in-1 packs!
You will need to do a little shopping before you can really make your favorite Americano, Espresso, or Single Origin, including the right equipment, real beans, and a few odds and ends to help the process along. A few supplies are essential. But we’ll help with the shopping, too!
