Are you one of those people that turn up their nose at canned ground coffee? I’m not. Like I’ve said before – I’m a middle-of-the-road coffee lover. Meaning, I like ALL types of coffee. (Mayyyyybe with the exception of instant. Perhaps if I were locked in a cave for a month or more, I’d consider it. But then again, how would I heat up water in a cave anyway??)

Canned Coffee – what’s your take?

For me – I do feel canned coffee has its place. And so do many others, otherwise it would not have stood the test of time. Is it the freshest. No. Does it taste stale? Definitely not. An unopened can of ground coffee will stay its freshest if you use it before about 5 months. Once opened, it’s best to use within 3 months, tops. And keeping it in an airtight container is also key. Canned ground coffee companies do a pretty good job about making tight-fitting lids, however they will loosen over time, which is why it’s a good idea to transfer the coffee grounds into an airtight container for best storage.

Best Canned Coffee Brands?

Coffee in general is a very subjective topic, and this one is no different. But if you are a middle-of-the-road coffee person like me, you may enjoy Folgers, Maxwell House, and Chock Full O’ Nuts. Those brands are always delicious – you can’t go wrong! I also recently delved into the Amazon canned coffee world, to give it a try. I found a canned ground coffee from Amazon that I now purchase for the office consistently. It’s also great for home, when you need coffee delivered in a day! It’s Amazon brand’s canned ground Colombian coffee, and it is SO delicious! Give it a try, I think you will love it!  A large, 24 ounce can of ground coffee is VERY reasonably priced.

At first I was hesitant to try Amazon’s Happy Belly brand of coffee, but hey – I’ll try anything once! And I’m so glad I did. A reasonably-priced medium roast ground coffee that is delivered the next day? Yes, please!

Why Canned Ground Coffee, anyway?

A few reasons:

  • Sometimes buying whole beans can be a bit expensive
  • Sometimes when people are sleeping in the morning, I can’t make a ton of noise by using the coffee grinder
  • When making a huge pot of coffee for a lot of people who aren’t really ‘into’ coffee like I am, using the grounds is quicker and less expensive then wasting whole bean coffee on people who don’t really care (lol!)
