Weekly Coffee Subscription Pricing

We wanted to say a quick word about a recent price change to our weekly subscription offering.  Our long time subscribers will no doubt notice that the weekly subscription price has increased substantially.  There is a very good reason for that and we wanted to share it with our loyal customers. Recently, there had been some confusion about how many bags were included at each subscription level.  When we set up the subscription duration, we presumed four weeks in a month, so a 3 month subscription would be 12 bags, a six month, 24 bags etc.  Unfortunately, 3 months can be either 12 or 13 weeks depending on which three months you count and six months is actually 26, so...

Assessing Our Mahlkonig EK-43's Grind Quality

Quantitative Assessment Of Mahlkonig EK-43 Burr Alignment Written by: Thomas Manion   Disclosure: This project would not be possible without the incredible program written by astrophysicist and specialty coffee brewing enthusiast, J. Gagne, at https://coffeeadastra.com. Much of his original source code, designed to understand the effects of particle size distribution on coffee taste, was used in the following experiment and can be found at: https://github.com/jgagneastro/coffeegrindsize. Supplementary code adapts data collected by his coffee grind size app, stored in .csv (comma separated values) files, into a readable form for multiple grind settings.  Abstract Recent variability in tasting notes during cupping of brewed coffee lead our team at Flight Coffee Co. Roasting Lab in Bedford, New Hampshire to suspect our Mahlkonig EK-43...

Flight Coffee Co. Becomes an Organic Certified Producer

As of this week, Flight Coffee Co, is now certified to sell coffee labeled as 100% organic (provided of course that it was grown organically). Organic coffee is a bit different from the organic fruit you find in your grocery store.  Both coffee and fruit start out the same way  - they are grown in a field that has been certified to be free of non-organic pesticides and fertilizers and during the growth can only be treated with organically approved products.  All harvesting must take place using equipment that either has not touched conventionally grown products or else has been sanitized to remove all traces of conventional treatments.  The organic products are then sealed and sent to market. To retain...

Composting Coffee Bags

60% Compostable?  What Does That Mean? If you've ever contemplated a Flight Coffee bag while enjoying a cup of your morning brew, you may have read our sustainability statement and wondered what 60% compostable means.  You have probably thought that the the tin tie and valve clearly are not compostable, but they don't make up 40% of the bag, so what's going on? Actually, I wondered this one myself when we first ordered these bags.    Fortunately, at this year's SCA Coffee Expo in Boston, I had the chance to speak with one of the VPs at the company that makes our bags and he explained the whole thing to me. Like many more things than you may realize, the...
