How to Store Your Coffee

1. Keep beans airtight and cool
Coffee enemies: air, moisture, heat and light.
If you want to preserve your beans’ fresh flavor as long as possible, store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature. Clear containers will allow light to enter and will compromise the taste of your coffee. Keep your coffee in a dark, cool location. If in the kitchen, keep it away from the oven anddirect sunlight. This will dry out the coffee.
 

Typical retail packaging for coffee is not ideal for long-term storage. Consider investing in opaque storage containers with an airtight seal.

2. Buy small batches
Coffee loses its freshness right after roasting. Buy smaller batches of freshly roasted coffee more often, usually for 1-2 weeks.
If you do choose to get a lot of coffee at once, make sure to separate old from the new batches to ensure freshness. If using bean coffee, grind up the beans right before brewing. This will bring the freshest
coffee.

3. Freezing or refrigerating coffee

We do not recommend to refrigerate your coffee due to moisture being absorbed into the coffee. Store in a dry room at room temperature.Freezing coffee is also discouraged. If you do choose to freeze your coffee, it must be in an
airtight container. If not, moisture can get into the coffee and the coffee can be
compromised.
