Mello Joy Coffee Company takes pride in offering the freshest products to its loyal customers. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions and answers about product freshness and brewing the optimal cup of Mello Joy coffee.
A: Despite the belief freezing coffee beans and ground coffee prolongs freshness, Mello Joy products never should be frozen. Freezing coffee can damage the distinct flavor of the product. Also, when removed from the packaging, frozen droplets can form. These droplets contain oxygen and can make coffee stale. It is best to store Mello Joy products in an air-tight, glass container.
Q: How is the flavor added to Mello Joy flavored blends?
A: Mello Joy offers a line of flavored coffees and seasonal products that use what is called the “wet method.” While some companies use dry powders and ingredients to flavor their beans, Mello Joy uses liquid flavoring to retain the high quality and original flavor of its products.
A: Mello Joy Coffee Company seals its products using the latest technology for ensured freshness. In sealed packaging, Mello Joy products stay fresh for up to one year. Once the package has been opened and exposed to air, it should be consumed within two weeks.
Q: What is the best way to store my Mello Joy products?
A: Mello Joy ground coffee and coffee beans should be stored in an air-tight, glass container for optimum freshness and prolonged quality. While other air-tight containers can be used, glass will not retain the odors, which can damage the quality of future product stored in the same container. Make sure the storage container is kept in an area that is not exposed to sunlight, as this also can reduce freshness. Once Mello Joy products are removed from their original packaging, they should be consumed within two weeks for optimum quality.
