According to the SCAA...

According to the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA), coffee freshness, water quality, ratio of coffee to water, and grind are the most important factors when preparing your great cup of coffee.


Coffee Freshness

Coffee freshness is NOT an issue with Still Roasting. We source all our organic, specialty grade beans from a reliable and trusted importer - the Blazac Brothers. Additionally, all coffee is roasted within a maximum of 30 days of your order though it has typically been roasted within a matter of days.

Water Quality

Water quality is arguably the most important variable that affects the quality of your cup, since 99% of your coffee is actually water.

For many, the use of cold, bottled water is the easiest (though not optimal) way to deal with this issue. Testing your water, and more importantly, knowing what to do with the results, is complicated at best.
