Benefits of Purchasing Whole Bean Coffee vs. Pre-Ground Coffee

Is there truly a difference between pre-ground fresh coffee and whole bean coffee? Yes, but which route you choose depends entirely on your distinct coffee likes and dislikes.

Whole Bean vs Ground Coffee

Coffee beans go through a very long process from seed to plant, and plant to fresh coffee bean. Once the bean is ground up, it starts to age rapidly.

The main difference between pre-ground and whole-bean coffee is freshness, flavor and scent. When using pre-ground coffee there is the convenience of not having to grind your own coffee and doing it improperly. Although, you are taking away from the freshness of your home brew and the length of time it has until it goes stale.

The benefit of whole bean coffee is having the freshest cup possible every time if properly stored. It is hard to compare the freshness of pre-ground coffee and whole-bean coffee if you have never experienced a fresh cup of whole-bean coffee when ground just minutes before being brewed. The aroma and flavor of the fresh brew is highly noticeable. A great comparison is freshly baked brownies out of the oven. When they are first taken out and cooled to an eatable temperature they are at their best. Once left sitting the aroma dies down as well as the overall flavor of the brownie. This is exactly how grounded coffee is. The first moments it is grounded up it is at its best.

Do you prefer to play it safe and take advantage of the convenience of pre-ground coffee or enjoy the freshness of a cup of whole-bean coffee that has a taste which far exceeds convenience? The choice is entirely up to you.
