Frequently Asked Questions About Astonishing Coffee Co.
Where do you get your coffee beans from?
Green coffee beans are sourced and imported around the world. This enables us to offer a unique taste profile from different regions of the globe.
Where are your beans roasted?Our beans are roasted locally in Houston, Texas. After roasting is complete, the beans are then allowed to degas the carbon dioxide that naturally occurs in the roasting process.
How is the coffee packaged?
After the coffee is degassed, it is packed in resealable foil bags that have been air vacuumed and flushed with nitrogen gas in order to preserve the freshness of the coffee. Additionally, our bags contain one way valves that enable the coffee to release any additional carbon dioxide from the roasted coffee.
How should I store the coffee?
Coffee should be stored in a dark cool place within an airtight container. This helps ensure sunlight or oxygen can’t increase the rate of oxidation that naturally happens with coffee. Our packaging blocks out any external sunlight and our one way valve blocks any oxygen from entering the bag.
How should I brew my coffee?
We’ve received praise from customers from all ranges of coffee brewers. Personally, pour over and French press machines are our favorites to use. However, we have also received wonderful praise from our drip machine users. We use a medium grind in order to accompany most user's preferred coffee brewer.
