Ever wondered how our Head Roastmaster Chris enjoys his coffee throughout the day? Wonder no more!
Join us for our first installment of a (coffee) day in the life of Roastmaster Chris and join him as he makes his way through the day, one cup of coffee at a time!
First things first, it’s important to always brew your coffee with fresh coffee. Roastmaster Chris prefers whole bean, but regardless of your grind preference, it’s recommended to store your coffee in an airtight container. Airtight containers are light, easy to keep clean, and feature an airtight vacuum seal. The seal helps to remove to oxygen so it can’t accumulate inside and stale your coffee.
After ensuring that his coffee is fresh, Roastmaster Chris starts the day with a cup brewed using a French Press. He prefers the French Press, as he feels this is one of the best ways to enjoy coffee and experience the true flavor!
Not familiar with the French Press Method or looking for some new tips and tricks? Join Roastmaster Chris for a step by step tutorial!
Start with 2 oz. of coarse ground coffee.
You can adjust ounces to your taste preferences.
Coarse ground is recommended, as finely ground coffee can get stuck in the filter or result in a more bitter tasting cup.
Put coffee into French Press.
Wet the grounds with hot water.
Water should be 200 degrees, never boiling. If you do not have an electric kettle, bring water to a boil then let sit for 2 minutes to reach 200 degrees.
Do not use all the water, just enough to develop a “crust”.
Let sit for 30 seconds.
Stir to break the crust and finish pouring the remaining water in a circular motion. Fill to bottom of the upper band.
Put the top on, but do not lower the plunger yet. Let it steep for 4 minutes.
You may adjust the time to your taste preferences
Plunge slowly with firm pressure.
If you get an air bubble, pull up to break the vacuum then resume plunging.
You may also notice some fine sediment at the bottom of your cup. This is NOT the same as grounds! In fact, Roastmaster Chris encourages drinking the sediment as it is a natural part of the coffee.
Stay tuned for Roastmaster Chris’s next installment of a (coffee) day in the life!

Curious about the coffee trends we’ve been keeping an eye on? Join us below as we highlight a few!
Ready To Drink (RTD) Coffees
The only thing better than coffee? Coffee that can be easily taken on the go! Ready to drink coffee makes it easy for coffee lovers to grab a quick caffeine boost no matter where they are. Fun fact: we also make an RTD coffee that will be back in stock shortly!
Increased Demand for Specialty Coffee
More and more consumers are looking to buy specialty coffee – both at the coffee shop and when shopping for coffee to enjoy at home. In 2021, consumers will be willing to pay more money for better coffee, especially for coffees that support social causes (such as our Café Femenino offerings).
Increased Demand for Single Serve Cups
Many consumers are shifting away from traditional drip brewers, both at home and in the office. This is driving the increase for single serve cups. Single serve machines allow each cup to be customized to the drinker – size, strength, flavor – you name it! At Joffrey’s, we’re expanding our single serve cup offerings with new options–such as our Caramel Mudslide flavored coffee.
Having gained heightened popularity due to the pandemic, many are choosing to have their coffee delivered directly to them, on a schedule they choose. Coffee subscriptions allow consumers to select which coffee varieties they prefer, and have them appear on their doorstep or at their office every month. At Joffrey’s, we offer 3 types of coffee subscriptions.
Nitro cold brew is infused with nitrogen after the cold brew process. In turn, the nitrogen adds a smoother feel to the coffee, creating a velvety foam at the top while also adding a richer and nuttier flavor.
Just like it sounds, cold brew is served exactly how it’s made: cold-steeped coffee grounds filtered and poured over ice.
Our specialized cold extraction process delivers the hottest trend in coffee: icy cold. Contact your Joffrey’s sales representative to learn more!

Bring the taste of seasonal spice to your cup – at home or in the office! Looking to spice up your coffee but not sure where to start? Try your cupboard or store some favorites in your break room!
Add seasonal favorites such as cinnamon, apple pie spice, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and allspice to your coffee grounds before brewing for an extra festive cup this season. If you’re looking for more of just a ‘hint’ of spice, try adding spice to your cup AFTER brewing or sprinkling on top of whipped cream!
