Coffee Notes #4: The Bullet Bag

In Starbucks, instead of taking a prepackaged bag of coffee from the display, ask for a one pound bag of whole bean espresso (for example) from the "bullet bag." This is the five pound silver bag the baristas use to make the coffee, and the beans from the bullet bag are fresher and taste dramatically better.

This is absolutely untrue. I'm a barista and can assure you that beans from the bullet bag are, in fact, the EXACT same thing as 1 lb. of Flavorlocked Espresso Roast. Moreover, you lose about a day of freshness for your coffee if you take from the Bullet. This tip should be disregarded. Ask your local barista for verification of this.
