FRESHNESS Coffee’s enemy: Air Whole roasted beans are the freshest and air is their enemy. Once you grind your beans or open the vacuum-sealed package it goes down hill from there. Once you open your container you have two weeks maximum to consume the coffee. Now is the time to store your coffee in a sealed container and limit the quantity you are storing. Some companies ship coffee within 48 hours after it is ground. Storing beans in the freezer or refrigerator is not recommended because they can absorb more new flavors. How long has that broccoli been in there, anyway? In Boca Grande, the Boca Bay Pass Club has several special blends of coffee from South America, Indonesia and Africa, all selected for acidity and full-bodied flavor. General Manager Terry Bissett and Chef Michael Klocinski went to Stan’s coffee, a coffee roaster in Fort Myers, to taste some blends. They came back with their own selection which is served at the Pass Club. If you are lucky enough to be a member, the beans are available for sale to the club’s members for home consumption. CAFETIERE à PISTON The French Press The French Press makes a great cup of coffee. Most coffee in New Zealand’s restaurants is served at your table in a French Press. Most people are too quick to hit the plunger before the proper extraction takes place - wait two to three minutes. The only negative is that the coffee may cool to quickly if making several cups so get a stainless steel insulated French Press, like the one on the right side in the image.
