How to choose the best coffee beans 2019

How can you tell if you have bought the best coffee beans? Can we say it is the best coffee beans if the cost is more expensive than the other? Does the roasting influence the degree of the coffee beans, and does origin matter? Let us take a look at the best practices on how to choose the best coffee beans when buying.

Whether you buy coffee beans to the local grocer or shopping online here are few things to take into consideration on how to choose the best coffee beans.

Every basic thing is all in the label.

When shopping, whether it is skincare or food, the first thing we always do is to read the label. So when deciding on which coffee beans to buy always check the label, do not only pick and put things on your shopping cart. Like when purchasing coffee beans read the information, and check whether it is pre-ground coffee or whole beans because there is a divergence between the two.

Pre-ground vs. Whole bean

When you are after for convenience of course without a lot of explaining the pre-ground coffee is the best choice, but if you are looking for quality and freshness in every cup, the best selection is a whole coffee bean.

The secret to a great cup of coffee is keeping the flavor and aroma intact which what’s the whole beans have, they preserve the aroma and flavor of the coffee through its hard outer shell, unlike with pre-ground beans the flavors and aroma have already oxidized because there’s no more outer shell to preserve the quality of the beans. That is why when you ask coffee aficionados, which coffee beans are best they will recommend whole beans because of the richness of the beans still tightly sealed, and only a few of its components oxidize during the brewing process.

Roast Date

The roasting date is also crucial when choosing coffee beans. Well, you will not get intoxicated when drinking a year old coffee after its roasting date, but of course, do not expect to get the freshness, flavor, and aroma of the coffee.

Ones the coffee beans are out from the roasting chambers it’s chemical components change where the beans release carbon dioxide which the process is called degassing.

Origin

When selecting coffee beans, it is important to read the coffee origin. The soil, altitude, water, and sunshine are important factors to the quality and taste of the coffee.

There are more than 50 coffee producing countries, and if you are a beginner in coffee, it is better to select the well-known single-origin regions to get familiarize with their characteristics before trying other exotic bean varieties.

Fare Trade Coffee

It is best to choose fair trade coffee for you are not only supporting independent farmers, but you are also getting the best quality beans. Fair trade is recognized in cultivating coffee under fair trade standards, which are then uphold across the network of producers, organizations, consumers, and companies. 

Choose Organic Labeled Coffee

It is best practice to choose organic coffee when buying beans, thou the price is more expensive, but the taste, flavor, and aroma is at high-quality.

On a side note, some labels indicate 100% coffee, but that does not portray to be the best coffee beans because there is no such thing as 80% coffee, all coffee beans are pure coffee unless they are coffee alternatives like chicory or rice coffee.

The Hidden Coffee farm In the Pearl of the Orient

Columbia, Brazil, Ethiopia, Vietnam, Indonesia are known to be the top producing countries of coffee. But did you know in the history of coffee the Pearl of The Orient, the Philippines was ones on the leader board of coffee producers? For many of us only know Columbia, Brazil as the producers of coffee, well that is a fact, in Columbia alone produces 11.5 million bags annually which gives them the reputation as the third-highest coffee producers. But in the early years during,1740 when the Spanish colonization introduce coffee in the Island of the Philippines it became paramount of success, which put the Philippines on the pedestal as the fourth top producing nation of coffee all over the world.

The Island of the Philippines has a fertile soil which is capable of producing four different species of coffee that are: Arabica, Liberica (Barako), Excelsa, and Robusta.

Coffee was introduced in the Philippines by the Franciscan Monks in early 1730, and the first-ever coffee tree was planted in the province of Lipa Batangas. The first coffee species that had implanted in the Island of the Philippines is from Mexico, and because of the successful germination of coffee trees in Lipa Batangas from there coffee cultivation is widespread in the entire province with the help of Augustinian friars Elias Nebreda and Benito Varas, coffee is acknowledged to Ibaan, Lemery, San Jose, Taal, and Tanauan. Because of coffee, the province of Batangas owed its wealth to it, and Lipa became the coffee capital of the Philippines.

The success of the Philippine coffee production skyrocketed, making them able to export coffee in the 1860s. After the Civil War, there is a high demand for Philippine coffee in the United States because it is cheaper to import coffee from the Philippines than importing from Brazil. Back then the Liberica or “Kape Barako” as known in the Philippines is the biggest export from Batangas to Manila and shipped to San Francisco. Almost half of the Philippine coffee had transported to San Francisco after the Civil War. Because of the low cost of export of Philippine coffee, the country had started to export in Europe when the Suez Canal in 1869 had opened.

Due to high market of the Philippine coffee, the province of Batangas started to introduce coffee production to its neighboring province of Cavite. In the town of Amadeo Cavite, the municipality also has begun cultivating coffee. But Lipa Batangas is still the chief generator of Philippine coffee, and Barako or the Liberica, is the top coffee choice for export, making it five times its price than the Java beans. During that time, the Philippine competitor regions like Brazil, Africa, and other Asian countries were on the edge of coffee declining when the coffee rust plague hit the neighborhoods making the Philippines as the fourth top producers of coffee the only country survive the epidemic. From 1887 to 1889, the Philippines was the only source of coffee in the world.

But in 1889, it became a bittersweet time in the Island of the Philippines, when the land was hit by coffee rust, and increased incidence of insect infestation. The county experienced a vast decline, in its coffee production, destroying all coffee trees in Batangas. In two years, the coffee production in the country went down to 1/6, from the original amount. By that time Brazil is already recovering from the coffee rust, and infestation regaining their position, as the top coffee producer country. The Philippines by then is making an effort to save few of the surviving coffee seedlings transferring them from Batangas to Cavite.

The glory days of the Philippines on the leader board of coffee producers have come to an end, but the Philippines did not completely stop the coffee production, but numerous farmers shifted into cultivating different crops.

The Philippines did not regain its position, and in the 1950’s the Philippine government with the help of Americans introduce a new species of coffee that are more resistant. During this time a high demand on instant coffee was needed that is why numerous farmers shifted back into coffee cultivation in the 1960s. However, coffee export was stopped because of the sudden proliferation of coffee farms that resulted in a surplus in the world market. And in 1980, the Philippines became a member of the International Coffee Organization (ICO).

Today the Island of the Philippines produces 30,000 metric tons of coffee a year. According to PhilMech, an agency under DA, Mindanao is the leader of the local production of dried coffee beans. Sultan Kudarat is the province that produces the most coffee on the island.

Salt in coffee? Yup that sounds weird adding salt in the coffee, but this condiments can be your new best friend to your coffee, especially when you are still a coffee beginner.

What does salt can do to coffee?

One of the qualities of coffee is bitter this is because of its chemical compounds such as caffeine– although caffeine is not the primary factor why coffee is bitter, 15% of it contributes to the bitterness of coffee. The mass substance on the bitterness of coffee is the chlorogenic acid, and phenylindane, which are commonly found, in roasted coffee beans. Thus this explains that the darker the roast of the coffee beans the harsher and bitter taste it produces.

A lot of coffee drinkers are not fond of the bitter taste that is why they put some ingredients to their coffee to counteract the bitterness like adding sugar, milk, cinnamon, creamer, etc. Another circumstance that adds to bitter taste in coffee is the brewing method. Over brewing the coffee, or letting the coffee steep for a long hours results to bitter taste, and sometimes incorrect measurements of coffee and water will have a bitter result.

According to Alton Brown, a very popular cookbook author, adding a quarter teaspoon of kosher salt to 6 tablespoons of coffee grounds neutralizes the bitterness and acidity in coffee and enhances its inherent sweetness. 

Is their a measurement on how much salt to put in coffee?

None there is no exact, measurement of how much is too much salt to put in coffee. A recommendation from those who tried this method is you can put a pinch of salt before brewing or a dash to your cup of coffee to balance the flavors.

Is there health benefit of adding salt to coffee?

Coffee alone is pack with health benefits, and adding salt to your coffee is better than putting sugar into it. Salt in coffee can help to replenish some of the sodium your body loses after drinking coffee.
