Driftaway Coffee FAQ
Does Driftaway Coffee offer decaf?
Yes. Driftaway decaf coffee helps improve sleep and lowers anxiety, reduces the risk of getting type 2 diabetes, and it’s lower in acidity than usual coffee.
Where are the Driftaway Coffees from?
The company sources their coffees from small farmers worldwide in places like south and central America and Africa before personally roasting them in Brooklyn, New York. To find the list of current coffees they offer, head over to their Current Coffees page. You will also find their older coffees archived on this page.
How long is the Driftaway Coffee fresh?
Driftaway coffees remain fresh up to three weeks after delivery. They stay delicious for a few weeks after, though they lose a small portion of the flavor found from fresh coffee. Please take note that coffee does not go wrong, though it gets stale and loses all traces of distinct flavor characteristics as time goes by.
Make sure you place your coffee away from sunlight and in an airtight container. Coffee usually retains its nuance and flavor for up to 21 days after the roast date when placed under the right environmental conditions. However, density, type of bean, and roast level also play a crucial role in how long the coffee stays fresh. For instance, lighter roasted coffees retain their nuance for longer than the typical 21 days, while the darker roasted coffees do not.
Are the Driftaway Coffees whole bean or ground?
All coffees this company offers are available as either ground or whole bean. The company gives you the option of choosing your coffee from 3 different grind sizes. They, however, recommend that you buy entire bean coffees if you possess a burr coffee grinder. A burr coffee grinder is much more consistent than a blade grinder; they cut the coffee in two stages, making the gains smaller while traveling between the burrs.
