Frequently Asked Questions
Will the Hamilton Mills Single Serve Coffee Cups work in my Keurig brewer?
Yes. Hamilton Mills is not affiliated with Keurig or the Green Mountain Coffee roasters company but the single serve cups should work in Keurig brewers as well as Coffeemakers.
Should I store the coffee in the refrigerator or freezer?
We do not recommend keeping coffee in the refrigerator or freezer. Coffee may absorb moisture and/or aromas if stored in a refrigerator. It is best to store in a cool, dark place, like a cabinet, to maintain optimum flavor.
Is the coffee gourmet quality?
We offer 100% high-grown Arabica varietals from locations all over the world. Each roast is inspected and certified according to specific standards of each region to be qualified as "gourmet coffee”.
What are “Arabica Beans”
Arabica coffee is the seed from the fruit of the Arabica species of coffee tree. Arabica trees produce a fine quality coffee and require special soil conditions, high altitudes (4,000 - 6,000 feet above) and just the right balance of warmth and moisture.
What is the difference between roasts?
Light Roasts: Produces medium light brown beans. This roast is the norm for eastern USA. This roast is crips, has very subtle flavoring and is the most often used for cupping or professional tasting.
Medium Roasts: Produces more of a medium brown bean almost the color of dark chocolate. This roast is common in the western parts of the USA. This roast is a good choice to taste broad differences between coffees.
Dark Roasts: Produces dark brown beans. The beans will start to show some oily drops on the surface with this roast. Dark roast coffee is less acidic and will have almost caramel tasting undertones.
Do the flavored coffees contain any sugar or sweeteners?
No. Our coffees do not have any added sugars or sweeteners and as such are also calorie free. The addition of milk and sugar in a cup of coffee however, will add calories.
Are the coffees gluten free?
Coffee by nature, is not a source of gluten and our ground coffee is produced in a dedicated facility where no other types of agricultural crops are handled or processed; however, due to the use of common equipment within the agricultural community to harvest, store and transport crops, our coffees may contain trace amounts of grain-based ingredients.
Is your coffee Kosher?
Yes, we are certified by the StarK on all of our products.
