What Is Ground Coffee?
Ground coffee is ground coffee beans, which is what brewed coffee is made from. Keep the coffee brewing all day with ground coffee beans in bulk or in measured packs. Coffee packets or bulk containers of ground coffee are perfect to keep around the office (including the home office) to ensure office workers are able to stay focused by drinking a cup of coffee whenever they need to.
Be sure to pick up a coffee maker and espresso machine, as well as sugar and sweeteners to make the coffee-brewing process quick and convenient. These are also great to have around the home for quick access to a cup of coffee.
What Kind of Ground Coffee Should You Buy?
There are a variety of different brands that produce coffee packets and you can likely find your favorite brand at Quill. Bulk ground coffee canisters are available in 2.5-pound cans, 1-pound packages and in premeasured coffee packets with 16 to 18 premeasured coffee packs per carton. Here are some of the most popular ground coffee types.
Light Roast Ground Coffee
Light roast ground coffee is characterized by its light brown color, as well as a lack of oil on the beans and light viscosity. Light roast ground coffee has a higher caffeine content than medium and dark roast coffee because lightly roasted beans cook for a shorter time and at a lower temperature.
Medium Roast Ground Coffee
Medium roast ground coffee is brown and has a thicker viscosity than light roast coffee. This variety carries much more of a balanced flavor with a medium amount of caffeine.
Dark Roast Ground Coffee
Dark roast ground coffee is usually dark brown or black in color. Dark roasts are known for their robust, full body, bold and smoky taste. Since dark roast ground coffee is roasted the longest, it is known to have the least concentration of caffeine than medium and light roast coffee.
Where Can Ground Coffee Be Used?
Beat the mid-afternoon slump in the office break room or home kitchen with a full supply of ground coffee beans and K-Cups. These can be purchased individually or in coffee packets in bulk to increase your savings and to make sure a coffee shortage never occurs where coffee is needed most. Besides the home or office, ground coffee can also be kept in waiting rooms for any type of office building so patients can enjoy a nice cup of hot-brewed coffee while they wait, giving your business a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere.
Make sure to add your choice of coffee filters when you order, as they are essential when it is time to brew. And for those who don’t like coffee but want a warm beverage, keep an assortment of teas and other hot beverages for employees.
