Good coffee storage is essential for getting the most out of your morning brew. Here are a few tricks to keep your coffee fresh.
Store your coffee in an airtight container. Exposing your coffee to oxygen will make it go stale quickly and even cause the natural oils to go rancid. If you've ever had a coffee go from chocolatey and delicious to bitter and sour, this is why. Oxidation. Coffee needs to be stored in an airtight container. Paper bags with tin ties will not do the trick. We recommend a container with a one way valve. This allows gasses to leave the bag without letting any fresh oxygen in. The canister pictured above even has a built in vacuum to suck the air out for optimal freshness.
Store your coffee in a cool, dark place. Heat and UV rays damage the coffee and will cause flavor loss over time. Additionally, coffee can pick up flavors from food and spices nearby. If your coffee storage area smells funny, there's a good chance that smell is getting into the beans. We recommend storing your coffee in a pantry or cabinet away from the oven and any other spices.
