What's the next-best thing to having an actual barista make your coffee? Brewing it at home!

Here are a few tips when brewing a cup of McMenamins house roasted coffee:

It is essential to keep coffee away from light, heat, odors and moisture. Store in a dry, dark place and use within two weeks.

Grind Fresh
Coffee should be handled like a perishable culinary item. Grind and brew your freshly roasted beans within 7 to 10 days of purchase. After that, the beans are susceptible to oxidation and will quickly go stale and start to sweat. 

Brew Fresh
Coffee is best brewed with 200°F water. After brewing it will be at about 185°F. A pre-warmed urn can hold that temperature for 45 minutes. After 90 minutes, coffee may still steam, but the temperature will have dropped significantly and the coffee may not taste as fresh.
