Truth in Coffee


Tips for extracting the Truth from our coffee.


Freshness and Storage

Rule of thumb, only purchase the amount of coffee you will use in a week’s worth of consumption. Freshness is key. Store your Galileo Coffee in the bag or air tight container. A cool, dark place is ideal. No fridges or freezers, they have odors and moisture the beans like to absorb.


Make sure you are matching your grind with your brewing system. Different systems call for different sizes. If possible wait to grind the beans until right before you brew. We recommend burr grinders.

Remember these are suggested brewing and storing techniques. There are great suggestions and resources out on the web. We encourage you to explore them.
