AMA - Coffee Industry Expert

Been working in the coffee industry for over 10 year. Travelled the world working in the wholesale coffee industry (B2B).

I've worked as a barista (never competed) and also touched on commodity trade (green bean buying) as well as logistics, marketing etc.

I'm having a few beers and am open to any questions you might have about the industry of coffee.

I will answer to the best of my ability.

    Why does instant coffee taste so much better than high quality coffee?

    • 4 weeks ago
      COFFEE OP

      Taste preference. But it's a different drink. I consider instant a completely separate category of coffee beverages.

      That being said, my first ever coffee experience was working night shift in a supermarket as a manager, and I still drink instant some mornings because I like the flavour and want something different.

      why does instant coffee taste so much better than the stuff at starbucks?

      General Starbucks is what it is. It's the McDonalds of coffee. Their reserve stores in Chicago, Milan etc. are actually pretty good, like those Instagram reels you see where someone takes a cheese burger and makes it gourmet.

        That sounds kinda like the Starbucks in Shanghai. Why are the starbucks in Shanghai better than the ones in the great USA?

    what's the dropoff for how "fresh" beans are after roasting? i remember seeing this graph where it starts off slow, but then quickly drops off and then your beans are effectively stale

      OP here. Not sure why some homosexual is trying to hijack this thread but my responses are below...

      Rule of thumb is 7 days to degas. Most "quality" roasters say 6 months. Most commercial roasters say 2 years.

      how are bean quality rated?

      What region of the world makes the best average coffee bean?

      Do you think you can curb China's tea culture with coffee culture?

      >how are bean quality rated?
      Currently they use the SCA scoring sheet which rates green bean defects and then scorers them - over 80 means they're "specialty". There is a push now towards the new Coffee Value Assessment, but I'll leave that up to you to decide if you agree.

      >What region of the world makes the best average coffee bean?
      most people would say panama geisha, and that's pretty true, their coffee is exceptional. However, coffee is very subjective.

      >Do you think you can curb China's tea culture with coffee culture?
      It's already happening. China is the worlds largest coffee market. for beans. for machines. for everything. Chinese will always drink more tea but by sheer population alone they will be the largest coffee market.

      >doesn't say "bean working in the coffee industry for over 10 years"

        Chinese already have Starbucks and Starbucks has lots of competition in China. The spending power of China is huge and now can drink a lot higher quality things than America. Chinese mog the shit out of USA hence why the Chinese consume so much luxury goods compared to the average Americant.

    Good morning, good afternoon, good evening, and good day to you, OP. What two (2) halves constitute "half and half"? The assumption is cream and milk, yes, but what strength cream and what strength milk? If I use up half the carton of half and half am I legally required to call it quarter-quarter? Maybe I can just call it cream at that point as the milk half is gone, would you agree OP?

    A Starbucks opens every nine hours in China. Since the coffee giant opened its first store in China in 1999, it has launched 6,000 stores around the mainly tea-drinking nation and plans to increase its number of stores to 9,000 by 2025.
    While American Starbucks are closing due to "societal issues", Starbucks is doing quite well in China. You American female dogs are getting mogged by China and even Starbucks probably likes to operate in China more than USA.

            No, my good man. The Chinese like Starbucks, because when serving the Chinese, Starbucks only procures the best beans and products. Hence the Chinese know they will be purchasing a satisfying product. Unlike the Starbucks in USA, there are no homeless people and weird colorful flags hanging over the counter. There are no "union strikes" because the Starbuck workers in China are not mentally deficient Americans. "Fast food" is in China from an American is actually good enough to eat.

                What does China and USA compete with? China is the largest manufacturing of automobiles competing with USA? No. China is the largest exporter of EV cars and will lead the whole world in EV production. Is USA a competitor. No. China will be the biggest and most important producer in R&D in semiconductors in no time. Does that mean China competes with USA? No. China will be the leading nation in AI revolution. Is USA a competitor? No. So I think the American government should not overestimate its impact on the global scene and view China as a rival of USA. China is not, China is a fact. China is a megatrend for Americans to cope with and get a long with. Let's make peace rather than agitate the inferiority of the Americans.
