We take pride in all of our coffee.
Each and every one of our blends has been through rigorous tasting processes by our expert coffee roasters. As some of the highest-rated coffee blends on the market, we know our customers love our coffee beans as much as we do.
From farm to door, every step of the Presto coffee making process has been designed to offer the most delicious, fresh coffee possible.

We sell different arabica coffee beans from a range of farms across the world, and we have a number of internal policies that we share with the roastery to ensure our customers get the best quality beans possible (at Presto we are absolutely obsessed by the quality of our beans).
1. All of our arabica coffee beans are screened both at the farm and at the roastery to ensure they are equal in size in preparation for roasting and grinding.
2. All of our coffee arabica beans have moisture testing at each point of the supply chain journey. The perfect humidity point for green beans is between 11 and 12%. Above this and the beans run the risk of becoming maouly and below this the beans start to dry out and become tasteless.
3. All of our arabica coffee beans are roasted in state of the art roasting machinery to ensure that each bean comes out roasted to perfection.
4. All of our coffee arabica are hand packed into our recyclable kraft bags. The beans are flushed with nitrogen to ensure they stay fresher for longer.
5. All of our coffee arabica beans are expertly taste tested by an army of Q graders and cuppers. Ensuring that the beans that were initially sourced match up to the quality of the beans that the customer get.
6. We launched on Amazon to provide customers with awesome tasting beans and we welcome feedback from Amazon on anything that we can do to improve our customer experience and the quality of our coffee beans.

Instant coffee once upon a time was the nation’s favorite kind of coffee. However Instant coffee and coffee bags are very different. Frozen dried instant coffee undergoes a lot of processing and refinement before being packaged into tins. Instant coffee comes in a few variants, and Presto is going to explore some of these instant ranges in the next few months so watch this space! Coffee Bags on the other hand are different from instant because of the processing. Coffee Bags are simply good fresh ground coffee put into brewable bags, that's it.
All the delicious ground coffee in our coffee bags is sourced from our roastery and our farms. Our 100% rainforest alliance Espresso blend is smooth and delicious in bean form, and all we’ve done is ground it up and pack it into these handy little coffee bags.
James (Founder of Presto): "For years I have enjoyed the taste and quality of Lavazza's coffee beans. Their dark roast 'Gran Espresso' has been a favourite of mine for a while. However, at Presto Coffee Beans I feel like we take experience and sustainability that little bit further. Presto offers customers that little bit more, not just an open pass to our relationship with our coffee farmers, who work hard to grow each bean, but with recipes, grinders and a range of collections that are tailored to our customers taste buds. We might not be able to compete on price on places like Amazon, but when it comes to quality of our coffee beans we're really proud of every bean that goes into our packs.”
There are four main types of coffee beans available in our markets today. These are Arabica Robusta, Liberica, and Excelsa.
Arabica: is the most produced coffee bean accounting for over 60% of the world’s coffee production. These beans are grown at high altitudes and are the most delicate of the four. For them to grow properly, they need to get steady rainfall and have shade. They are influenced by their environment and prone to diseases.Arabica beans of high quality are identified by having a bright body, they also enough amounts of acid and have a multi-layered intricacy of flavors and aromas.
Robusta: is the second best from Arabica. These beans are immune to diseases and tolerant to their environment as they can withstand myriad altitudes but they require hot weathers where rain doesn’t fall constantly.High-quality Robusta beans are identified by having a smooth texture, low acidity, and a bit of chocolate taste. Robusta beans are excellent for cream and sugar lovers.
Liberica: These beans are the largest, they have a unique aroma consisting of floral and fruity notes. Many people don’t like the coffee from these beans, they say it doesn’t taste like coffee.
Excelsa: These beans grow in southeast Asia. Their taste is unique as they combine light roast traits like tart notes and fruity flavors. They contain small amounts of caffeine and are low on the aroma.
You can buy beans either from:
Your local shops: Find out if your local shops sell beans and if they do you should ask about where they get them and the roast date. This will help you know if you're buying high-quality coffee beans.
Local internet listings: If can’t find beans from your local shops, then the internet can be of great help. Try on Facebook and other social media platforms as well.
Online shops: Online shops are not cheap because of shipping costs and so on, but they are very reliable and can get you the best coffee beans you need. Presto is one of the online shops that can provide you with the best fresh coffee beans.
Coffee beans should be stored in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature because they do not get along with air, moisture, heat, and light. Keep them in a dark cool location, storage canisters are the best for storing beans.
There are four ways to roast coffee beans at home. You can roast in a pan, in the oven, in the popcorn popper, or the purpose-built home coffee roaster. However, roasting in a pan or oven is the easiest and cheapest way since we all have pans and ovens in our homes.
Roasting coffee beans is a simple process with a few necessary steps to follow. The equipment you’ll need when roasting with a pan is an electric or gas burner, the pan itself, oven mitts, stirring device i.e. wooded spoon or wire whisk, and metal colander. The coffee roasting process for the best coffee beans is as follows:
Measure out your coffee beans and put an amount that will be easy to stir, half a cup is enough for starting, then preheat your pan over medium heat
Pour the beans into the hot pan and then stir continuously. After 5 to 10 minutes the beans will start changing their colour from green to yellow, golden brown to light brown and light brown to dark brown. You'll notice the first crack when the beans turn from golden to light brown, and when they change from light brown to dark brown you’ll hear the second crack.
After they are ready, cool them and store them in an airtight container. The best tasting coffee will then be ready for you to enjoy after 5 to 8 days.
There are many benefits of drinking coffee, its high in antioxidants is linked to a reduced risk of many diseases. However, coffee has high amounts of caffeine, a stimulant that can cause anxiety and disrupt sleep. Caffeine is also addictive; therefore, coffee must be consumed in the right amounts to avoid these problems. Choosing the best coffee beans is of super importance. Many consumers prefer to stay clear of the supermarket coffee brands & instead look for online speciality coffee companies like Presto Coffee beans.
Buy freshly roasted beans online from the best coffee roasters such as Presto. With Presto Coffee Beans, you will never run out of fresh coffee again, they will deliver the coffee directly to your door whenever you need it.
Unroasted green coffee beans can last for about 2 to 3 years while roasted beans will last for 3 to 6 months.
Coffee beans don’t go bad, that’s the reason why you don’t see expiry dates on the package. They’ll take years to be stale but they will lose their freshness about 5 to 7 after being roasted. We are speciality coffee makers & pride ourselves on the quality of our coffee beans.
