Pecan Coffee Buying Guide

The first thing one should look out for when buying pecan coffee is to check if it really is pecan coffee or pecan-flavored coffee.

Real Texas Pecan Coffee should only have two ingredients listed. These are coffee beans and pecan nuts. Because of the popularity of authentic Texan Pecan Coffee, it is very easy to find coffee flavored with pecans. In fact, it is one of the most popular flavored coffee variants in the market today.

Due to its popularity and the high price of pecan nuts, it is very common to see pecan coffee that uses pecan flavoring compounds during the roasting process to minimize cost and to make it more accessible. This, in itself, is necessarily not bad. If you can’t find pecan coffee with real pecan nuts, then at least make sure that no artificial pecan flavorings are used to flavor the coffee.

Pecan Coffee Production & Farming in Texas

Pecan coffee, while it has no official history on record, has been a Texan favorite for the longest time. In fact, a quick search on the internet will show that if you search for “Pecan Coffee”, almost all of the results will show you products that feature “Original Texan” pecan coffee.

Authentic Texan Pecan Coffee is made by adding real pecan nuts during the roasting process. Many pecan farmers and plantations in Texas produce and sell pecan coffee. These are the best places to buy pecan coffee as you are guaranteed to get real pecan coffee. Aside from getting it direct from pecan planters, real pecan coffee can also be found in Farmers’ markets all over the great state of Texas.

Many specialty or artisan coffee roasters also produce pecan coffee, but in the absence of fresh pecan nuts, they will use pecan nut extracts and flavorings. While there is nothing wrong about getting pecan-flavored coffee, if you really want to experience authentic Texas pecan coffee, then it is best to get coffee with real pecan nuts.

Packaging:

Pecan Coffee is packed in standard coffee packaging bags with one-way valves to ensure that the coffee degasses properly. While there are many designs and shapes to coffee packaging, they are all made from a combination of paper, PET, LDPE, and aluminum. Commercial coffee roasters as well as artisan coffee roasters all use a standard packaging method to ensure freshness of the coffee.

Enjoying Pecan Coffee

To fully enjoy pecan coffee, it is best consumed brewed, over ice, or ice blended.

Storage:

Roasted pecan coffee has to be stored properly to preserve its freshness and flavor.

The four things you have to minimize when storing coffee beans are moisture, air, heat, and light. This means that you have to store your coffee beans in an air-tight container, away from light and in a cool place. Another good thing to note is that coffee beans, while they retain much of their potency after extended periods, will lose  some of the subtle notes and flavors after two or three weeks.

This is another reason why you should get your pecan coffee from local roasters, as you can be sure that the beans are always freshly roasted. Get enough for two weeks or enough to last you for your next grocery run. Buying those giant bags of coffee beans are is not usually a good idea, yes, it’s cheaper, but unless you can finish all of the beans by two to three weeks, then you’re just wasting money in terms of quality.

Roasting Your Own Pecan Coffee:

Roasting coffee is a very expensive and complicated hobby, and we wouldn’t recommend roasting your own pecan coffee if you have little or no experience doing it. It’s better to purchase pecan coffee straight from the producer.

But if you already roast your own beans, then you should visit your local pecan producers and get tips and tricks from them on how to roast your own pecan coffee. We’re sure that they will provide you with some tips on how to properly roast your coffee beans with pecans as long as you source your pecan nuts from them.
