Coffee Fact: A coffee in a can from the supermarket often contains major debris, so you be careful when you choosing, stay with good brand names.
Coffee Fact: Once you have freshly roasted and the ground coffee, filtered the water and cleansed the equipment free of oil residues from the last brewing, then this will also determine the quality along with the actual coffee beans, this makes a huge difference in taste and coffee quality.
Coffee from a can in the supermarket will often contains a blend of Arabica and robusta coffee beans, while most coffee houses sell only Arabica coffee beans. Arabica beans are usually much more flavor rich, while the robusta beans will contain more caffeine but with less flavor and are much cheaper to produce.
When you are purchasing coffee, whether in a coffee house or in a supermarket store, you want to get pure 100% Arabica beans, except for the espresso blends, which can a combination of both beans. From my personal experience I say that a 100% arabica espresso blend is better, but many people will disagree on this point, so go just go with what you like best and .
For coffee freshness at a coffee house, it is better to buy the more popular blends that move fast, while the supermarket store bought vacuum packaged containers with expiration dates are your best bet when it come to coffee freshness.
Chances are you will not get truly fresh coffee in a supermarket. This is an absolute fact if it is pre-ground. In a coffee house look for a coffee shop that roasts in-house and ask what was roasted that day. If the person behind the counter does not know, best find yourself another coffee shop. Just so you know ground coffee only really lasts a few hours or one day tops.
