Your Household Coffee Maker.

The vast majority of coffee drinkers prepare it at home, but did you know that a Nationa Science Foundation study found that 50% of household coffee machines contained mold and yeast? Yep, they do. And though it may be a hassle, it is important to properly clean in between each use to minimize this.

How You Store Your Beans.

Have you ever given how you store coffee in your house a second thought? Well, you might want to, a similar study found that 52% of tested coffee beans had mold in them before they even reached the household coffee machine! It's extremely important to store your coffee in a dry location away from direct sunlight. This can help reduce your chances of developing mold.

Quick Tip:

Household coffee must be stored in a dry location away from direct sunlight.

3.

Where your coffee beans are produced.

Mold tends to grow in moist locations, and most coffee comes from the tropics - where it's moist all the time... see where we're going with this? Furthermore, coffee's slight acidity helps mold grow and thrive. Put all of these factors together and the result is that coffees produced with a prolonged storage period before roasting tend to have a higher concentration of mold before they're even packaged for sale.

Quick Tip:

Harvested coffee beans with a long storage period before roasting tend to have higher concentrations of mold.

4.

So.. How can you ensure there's no mold in YOUR coffee?

First, it's important to purchase coffee from companies that test for mycotoxins or "mold." Second, it's important to store your coffee with the least amount of heat and humidity possible. And third, using methods to brew at-home coffee outside the standard at-home coffee machine can reduce the risk of mold growing your machine itself.
