Storing Your Coffee After Purchase...

After you have visited The Drive Coffee Bar at 1670 Commercial Drive and had an awesome coffee and then decided to buy a bag or tow of our special blends; now what?  How do you make sure your coffee stays as fresh as possible?

Some quick tips:

- Buy Whole Bean coffee and don't grind until ready to use.  Whole beans retain freshness longer that pre-ground.

- DO NOT keep your coffee in the fridge or freezer! 

- Keep beans in dry space.  Avoid moisture and temperature fluctuations.

- Store in a cool and dark space - not near heat and not too cold where beans will condense when brought out.

- Store in a air tight and opaque container.

Simple little tricks to make sure your beans taste as good at home as they do in the coffee bar...

Matcha Madness - Give It A Try!

You never had a matcha latte?! Why?!

Come by the coffee bar and give it a try.  You will love these.

Matcha is s finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tree leaves.  It is special in two aspects of farming and processing: the green tea plants for matcha are shade-grown for about three weeks before harvest and the stems and veins are removed in processing. The powdered form of matcha is consumed differently from tea leaves or tea bags, and is dissolved in a liquid, typically water or milk.  We can also miz with Almond Milk or Coconut Milk for those Vegan friends out there.  Come by the bar - 1670 Commercial Drive and give this a try.
