From Bean to Cup
For more than 80 years, the Nicholas tradition of
roasting coffee starts with selecting the finest coffee beans worldwide.
Our owners carefully select the highest quality Arabica beans from the
growers who export them to us in 150 lb burlap sacks. The beans are then
shipped directly to the Nicholas Coffee Co.'s store where
they are roasted under close supervision and inspection to ensure
consistency in flavor and color. The freshly roasted beans are
re-bagged for retail and wholesale customers. Most of our coffees are
shipped the day they are roasted ensuring our customers the freshest and
best tasting coffee to grace their lips.
For three generations, the Nicholas Family has had the
privilege of serving its loyal customers with only the finest coffee and
teas available. Your continued enjoyment and satisfaction will remain our
Brew Up A Perfect Pot
When you purchase fresh roasted whole bean coffee,
you're on your way to a great cup of coffee. The flavor and aroma of whole
bean coffee isn't released until you grind it. Once you taste whole bean
specialty coffee sent fresh from the roaster to your home, you'll never be
satisfied with canned coffee again!
Whole bean coffees retain their flavor three times
longer than ground coffee. You'll find that a pound of whole bean coffee
yields 25% more than a one pound can of commercially ground coffee with
more flavor and aroma.
If you have a grinder at home, grind your coffee beans
just before brewing. Be sure to use the proper grind for your coffee
brewer and grind only what you need. If you grind your coffee at the
store, don't worry. The storage methods listed below will help keep your
Nicholas coffee as flavorful as the day it was roasted.

Next, add fresh, cold water. The water you use really
does make a difference. If your tap water tastes good it will enhance the
rich flavor. Otherwise, you may consider purchasing bottled water.
(Please note that water and other minerals leave a residue in your coffee
maker which can greatly effect the flavor of your coffee.)
Measure your coffee accurately. A good starting point is
one level tablespoon of coffee per 6 oz. cup of water. After brewing,
remove and discard coffee grounds.
