What is a Bulk Coffee Program?

A bulk coffee program is a plan that will ship you a predetermined amount of coffee each month. The amounts vary, so make sure you find a plan which suits your needs. Begin by ordering a conservative amount to make sure you aren’t stuck with too much coffee on your hands. Most of the plans offer a house blend brand of coffee which may be imported from Sumatra, Kenya, Central America or South America.

If you buy bulk coffee online, you should be able to find it at a discount. But don’t just look at the discount price – also be sure to checking out what the shipping costs are. The shipping cost may be sizable since bulk coffee ships in bags weighing up to 25 pounds. One way to cut down on shipping costs is to find a local distributor. This will not only save money, but will also get your coffee to you faster. The last thing you want to do is to end up paying high overnight shipping costs for 25 pounds of bulk coffee.

Tips for Brewing Bulk Coffee

If you do own a restaurant, coffee house, or large business and are making a lot of coffee, be sure to use a commercial grade coffee machine for brewing your bulk coffee. A coffee maker designed for home use cannot make coffee fast enough and does not produce hot enough water for optimal brewing. Using very hot water is one of the secrets to the great coffee served at your favorite restaurant or coffee shop.

If you don’t consume a lot of coffee in a short amount of time, purchasing bulk coffee may not be your best option. The best cup of coffee comes from fresh beans, bought within the last month. You may save money with bulk coffee, but if it sits for several months before you use it up, you’ll be disappointed in the quality of your coffee.
