The Villages Coffee Roaster
The Villages Coffee Roaster Challenge
At my age, I didn’t fight my way up the food chain to retire in a community where I couldn’t get a decent cup of coffee. Here in central Florida, all I can find are remixes of Seattle’s burnt and bitter industrial coffee.
I figured out a long time ago, that if you want good coffee, you’d have to make it yourself. And I’m ok with that. But I still have to find local fresh whole bean coffee. That means finding The Villages Coffee Roaster that knows what they’re doing. Yeh, good luck with that.
Perfect Whole Bean Coffee
Before I tell you where to get the perfect coffee, let me tell you my definition of perfect coffee.
- Organic green beans from Central America
- Not burnt to a crisp
- Fresh, i.e. sitting on my table within 48 hours of roasting.
Did you know that a vast majority of the roasted coffee sold in the US has been sitting in warehouses or on store shelves for months if not years. And here’s the kicker. All coffee goes stale in 30 days. Yep! And it doesn’t make a lick of difference how the coffee is packaged or stored. That means two things. Nearly all coffee in the US is stale, hence the bitter taste.
To compound the bitter taste, the large industrial coffee companies burn the snot out of their beans to increase the shelf life and to hide the bitter taste of the beans. No wonder your stomach doesn’t handle coffee well. That’s all fine and dandy for Seattle. If that’s what they like then good for them, but not for us and not here in central Florida.
So, where can we find The Villages Coffee Roaster that “gets it”? You can’t. The best we can do is look online. Check out Lake City Coffee. They buy the best Central American beans that money can buy; lightly roast them; and deliver them to our door within 48 hours of roasting. This is perhaps the best coffee available anywhere in all of Florida.
Additionally, Lake City Coffee is owned by senior citizens, managed by senior citizens, their roasters are senior citizens.
