Baked in Bosnia Coffee Guide

1) High quality, premium beans

2) Freshly roasted beans. Whole bean starts to become stale 3-4 weeks after roasting. Avoid the staleness found in grocery stores. We offer the freshest coffee on the internet: roasted the same day it ships out direct to your doorstep.

3) Freshly ground beans - it matters. We offer a few grind varieties, but we recommend buying whole bean and investing in a quality grinder. For fine grinds like espresso and Turkish, you should use grounds within 1 hour for best results. Within 12 hours for standard grind. So yes, that pre-ground grocery store coffee is stale... and the finer the grind the faster it goes bad.

4) Proper grinding equipment. Conical burr is king, please for the love of coffee: do not use blade grinders. Quality and freshness of grind is one of the most important aspects of the perfect sip.

5) The correct grind and brewing combination. See chart below.
