Coffee Freshness Tips

A customer had a question recently about keeping coffee in the freezer. We get a lot of questions about that and other ways to keep coffee fresh, so here are some answers:

Our bags help keep your coffee fresh!  They're heat-sealed with a one-way valve that allows the coffee to release post-roasting gases. They also have a reasealable zipper.

The general rule is keep your coffee away from light, heat, and moisture.

The cool temperature in your freezer does keep heat out, however, you run the risk of getting condensation on your coffee, especially if you're taking it in and out of the freezer regularly.

So if you have an extra pound of coffee you're not going to use for a while, it might help to put it in the freezer until you're ready to use it, but it's not a great idea for a bag of coffee you're using all the time.

Here are our recommendations for keeping coffee fresh:

For best freshness and taste, use your coffee within 2 weeks. Store it in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. No matter your brewing method, we always recommend using a burr grinder, and grinding immediately before preparing your coffee.
