- Distinct Flavours. Every Country has a different variety and flavour. Coffee is meant to be different with each crop, even the way it is roast creates a difference in the outcome of flavours.
- 'Fresh' is Best? This word is used over and over to advertise coffee, but what should you really be looking for? Look for packages that have a roasting date.

Most coffees out there don't even put a roasting date - only a best before date - which is usually more than a year since it was roasted.
