How do I properly store coffee?
Coffee is best stored in a sealed bag or container at room temperature and out of the light. All Signal coffee is packed in specially sealed bags to preserve freshness.
How long will roasted coffee stay fresh?
Roasted coffee requires 2-3 days of rest after it has been roasted to be at its best. Coffee is ideally consumed within 4 weeks of roast date, but is perfectly fine and still delicious for 6 months or longer, provided it has remained sealed and been properly stored.
How quickly should I use coffee after it has been ground?
Coffee quickly loses freshness once it's been ground, so for the best coffee experience we recommend grinding only what you need, right before you need it. The first and quickest way to improve your home coffee game is to grind your own coffee.
Do you sell pre-ground coffee?
Because coffee stales so quickly once ground, we sell only whole bean coffee. Some of our wholesale and retail partners will be happy to grind a bag of whole bean coffee for you without additional cost; if you take home a bag of ground coffee, you'll want to go through it within two weeks.
How does your shipping work?
All of our coffee is shipped within 48 hours of its roast date. Orders received on Fridays are pushed to the following week.
