Whole Latte Love Monaco Whole Bean Espresso
Whole Latte Love Monaco Whole Bean Espresso

Ever since I had to wait six weeks before getting my Delonghi Magnifica back from service because of a grinder problem, I've been paranoid about putting oily beans in it. I recently ordered some Monaco because it was advertised as a light roast and I thought WLL would be sensitive to SuperAutomatic issues. But Monaco seems to be pretty oily (compared to say, Lavazza Supercrema), especially some of the beans. I ground some up in a separate grinder to try it and actually liked it a lot. Do you think it's safe to use directly in a superautomatic? Thanks.

mjackson ♦ Diana,

I like that coffee a lot as well and I would not worry about using those beans.

TechMilanoItalia Steve, the shelf life all really depends on where you are storing it. If you have a cool, dry place that is out of the sunlight, you will get the longest life out of the beans in storage. Also, the 1-pound bags tend to store a little better due to there being less airspace in the bags. A one- to two-month storage time would be about the longest you would want to go.
