Choose coffee that is in the middle price: a cheap product is unlikely to be of good quality, but an expensive product will probably taste the same. Good ground coffee is never packaged in plastic containers, only metal or glass. And the expiration date of a natural coffee should not exceed 18 months.

Choosing carrots is very easy: Buy the one that is less colorful, without spots and medium in size.
