WHAT IS TOO STRONG COFFEE?
We are a coffee for causers. We believe in celebrating honesty, promoting sustainability and pushing for progress. We partner with various independent news outlets, organizations and influencers by bringing you a coffee brand for causers. We started Too Strong Coffee in 2020 so we could support organizations with progressive ideals because we share their vision of pursuing truth, challenging the establishment and driving positive change all the while allowing you to enjoy a tasty cup of coffee.
WHY IS TOO STRONG COFFEE AMAZING?
All of our coffee is USDA Organic and Fair Trade Certified and custom roasted to perfection. Our bags are recyclable and our coffee’s beans are sourced from environmentally conscious organic farming throughout the world. By being Fair Trade Certified, we guarantee farmers with price security, which they are able to use for sustainable production and projects that help benefit their communities and improve their businesses
WHAT DOES FAIR TRADE CERTIFIED MEAN?
When you see a product with the Fair Trade Certified seal, you can be sure it was made according to rigorous social, environmental, and economic standards. FairTradeCertified.org works closely on the ground with producers and certifies transactions between companies and their suppliers to ensure that the people making Fair Trade Certified goods work in safe conditions, protect the environment, build sustainable livelihoods, and earn additional money to empower and uplift their communities.
WHAT DOES USDA CERTIFIED ORGANIC MEAN?
Right now, the most meaningful label on your food, in terms of upholding specific government requirements, is the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) organic seal. For a product to be certified organic, it’s required to meet specific standards:
- Organic crops cannot be grown with synthetic fertilizers, synthetic pesticides or sewage sludge.
- Organic crops cannot be genetically engineered or irradiated.
- Animals must eat only organically grown feed (without animal byproducts) and can’t be treated with synthetic hormones or antibiotics.
- Animals must have access to the outdoors, and ruminants (hoofed animals, including cows) must have access to pasture.
- Animals cannot be cloned.
HOW SHOULD I STORE THIS COFFEE?
The best way to store coffee is in an airtight container in a dark cupboard. There’s no need to freeze! Just keep your beans away from sunlight, air, and humidity. The good news is that our premium bags allow you to do just that because they are opaque black with a one-way valve that does not allow oxygen or humidity inside.
HOW LONG WILL MY COFFEE LAST?
Too Strong Coffee stays fresh longer than many other coffees on the market because our opaque black bags utilize a premium one-way gas valve along with an airtight re-sealable zip top. That valve is there to keep your coffee fresh and delicious for as long as possible. The valve is a one-way gas exchange that lets nothing in but allows carbon-dioxide to pass through and out of the bag.
This does two things that are extremely important to keeping coffee fresh. First, when coffee beans react with oxygen in the air they begin to turn stale. Oxygen might be good for us but is terrible for coffee. By not allowing oxygen to interact with the freshly roasted coffee beans, you are preserving the coffee beans, and as such, guaranteeing the freshness of your coffee for longer periods of time. Second, the valve releases carbon dioxide which is constantly building up inside the bag due to the roasting process and if not released would make the bag explode. Our coffee bags with a valve provides an ingenious way of keeping your coffee beans in good shape so that each cup you make tastes as fresh as ever.
