Does this help? Maybe ask them when they feel that their coffee is best and why.
Cafe Fantastico says they roast every day but the last 2 bags I bought were dated 4 days old at the time of purchase. When I asked about that they said it takes that long to \"set up\" or off-gas CO2 or whatever... Do any beans actually take that long to become ready to use? Would it be rude to ask for beans no older than 2 days old?
I find coffee (espresso or drip brewed) is at its best between DAY 3 and DAY 6.
Much after that it is a one way trip to STALE-CITY.
For this reason, places that sell WHOLE BEAN coffee in Victoria (or anywhere for that matter) who claim that their fresh coffee was roasted 10 days to 2 weeks ago are selling rubbish.
