Frequently Asked Questions
Our Beans and Pods
How should I store my coffee?
You want to protect your coffee from light, air, heat and moisture. The best way to do this is to keep it in a resealable bag or an airtight container, and then pop it in a cupboard where the temperature is most stable. Don’t store your coffee in the fridge or freezer and be sure to grind your coffee, only as you need it.
How long should freshly roasted coffee last?
Coffee doesn’t go off like milk, but it does go stale, meaning all the good characteristics, like the sugars, gases and oils will deteriorate. Look for a roast date rather than a best before date. This will give you the best idea of freshness. We always recommend purchasing whole beans, in small quantities, and consuming within 3 or 4 weeks of the roast date. For optimal flavour we recommend drinking our coffees between 7-30 days.
How do I choose the right blend for me?
Coffee is all about experimenting and discovery, so we encourage you to try as many blends and different origins as you can. That's half the fun after all. The best place to start is by checking out the tasting notes. Once you find a coffee you like, you can look for these flavours in others blends or origins.
How much coffee is in each pod?
Sourced coffee pods contain 5 grams of fresh coffee in each pod.
How long can I store coffee pods?
Our coffee pods have a shelf life of 12 months. Refer to the side of pack for best before date.
What coffee machines are compatible with Sourced coffee pods?
Sourced coffee pods are compatible with all Nespresso and De'Longhi coffee pod machines.
I like my coffee strong; can I get a strong coffee from a pod?
Yes of course! A coffee that you purchase in a cafe will most likely contain around 10g of coffee per shot. If you like your coffee strong or like to drink it out of a large mug, we recommend using two pods. If you don't want a large cup of coffee but still want the strength in taste, try only filling the glass 3/4 full with milk.
What does intensity mean? Does it affect the caffeine content in the blend?
Intensity is how we define the profile of a coffee blend and is based on the degree of roasting, its body and its bitterness. Intensity does not refer to the amount of caffeine found in the coffee.
