Fox Coffee's Guide to Buying the Right Amount of Coffee


Navigating how much coffee to buy can be tricky. Whether you're a casual drinker or a coffee fiend, this guide is designed to help you determine the perfect amount of Fox Coffee to purchase, ensuring your coffee is fresh and flavorful every time you brew.

Understanding Your Coffee Consumption

  1. Single Cup Daily Drinkers

    • Description: You enjoy a single, splendid cup of coffee each day.
    • Recommendation: Purchasing a 250g bag of Fox Coffee beans should last you about 2 to 3 weeks.

  2. Multiple Cups Daily Drinkers

    • Description: Coffee is your fuel, and you enjoy several cups throughout the day.
    • Recommendation: A 1kg bag is your best bet, likely lasting 2 to 4 weeks depending on your consumption pattern.

  3. Occasional Drinkers

    • Description: You indulge in a coffee a few times a week or when the mood strikes.
    • Recommendation: A 250g bag could last you up to a month or more, ensuring your coffee is fresh when you desire it.

Calculating Your Coffee Needs

  • The Basics: On average, a single 8oz cup of coffee uses about 20g of coffee beans. To tailor this to your habit, here's a simple formula:

    • Weekly Coffee Cups x 20g = Weekly Coffee in Grams
    • Weekly Coffee in Grams ÷ 1000 = KG of Coffee per Week
  • Example for Daily Drinkers: If you drink 2 cups per day, that's 14 cups a week.

    • 14 Cups x 20g = 280g
    • 280g ÷ 1000 = 0.28kg per week, rounding up, a 500g bag is ideal for the fortnight.

Storage and Freshness

  • Short-Term Drinkers: If you consume your coffee quickly, storage in a cool, dark place in its original packaging or an airtight container is sufficient.

  • Long-Term Storage: For those who buy in bulk but drink occasionally, consider dividing your coffee into weekly portions and storing them in airtight containers away from light and moisture.
