Many customers ask, “How should I store my coffee.” This is an important question because if you store coffee properly, it will maintain freshness longer. All our coffee is packaged in vacuum-sealed bags to preserve freshness. Your coffee will maintain an excellent shelf life if you dose out only the coffee you need for any batch, then keep the rest tightly sealed inside its package with minimal air contact. For optimal storage, we recommend a tightly sealed opaque container like an Airscape canister. No, you really don’t need to store your coffee in the refrigerator or freezer. Though if you’re living on a boat for the next year and won’t be able to buy fresh coffee during that time, the freezer might not be a bad idea.
