better to get locally roaster beans - which would be fresher than this stuff
Some people say this, but I find no evidence that it matters.
I started with pre-ground, and found when I opened a new pack, it tasted better than the last of the old pack, presumable loss of aromatics.
So I got a grinder, stored my beans properly, and have not noticed a problem since.
Got any links to double-blind tests?
No doubt, but….
1) this is $15, a local roaster will start at $40.
2) unless you consume the coffee beans quickly, any benefit derived from buying locally roasted (fresher) beans quickly diminishes.
I used to roast my own beans, I used to buy local, now I just buy aldi single origin.
