Why We Should Freeze Our Coffee Beans

A recent study has proven that freezing coffee beans before grinding results in a tastier brew. A study published in Scientific Reports has revealed that cold beans “produce smaller, more consistently sized particles when ground, yielding more flavor from less coffee.” The issue of consistency is key, because during brewing, water extracts flavor at different rates from larger and smaller grinds—an inconsistent grind can lead to an inconsistent taste with both sour and bitter flavors. So in order to get a great cup of coffee (cold or hot) every time, just chill your beans.
