 How To Store Coffee?

 

Store your coffee in a cool, dark place. The best way to store coffee is to store it whole bean (not ground) in an airtight container in a cool, dark place. We suggest that you avoid storing coffee in a fridge or freezer. Moving beans in and out of the freezer every time you make coffee can introduce moisture to the beans, resulting in potential mold growth and degradation of the coffee.

Similarly, coffee easily absorbs the flavor of things around it. Take care in choosing a container to store it in (might want to rethink reusing pickle jar), and be mindful that storing near odorous foods, spices etc, may change the flavor of the coffee.

Buy The Right Amount


Coffee begins to lose freshness almost immediately after roasting. Try to buy smaller batches of freshly roasted coffee more frequently - enough for one or two weeks.

Exposure to air is bad for your beans. If you prefer to keep your beans in an accessible and/or attractive container, it may be a good good idea to divide your coffee supply into several smaller portions, with the larger, unused portion in an air-tight container.

This is especially important when buying pre-ground coffee, because of the increased exposure to oxygen. If you buy whole beans, grind the amount you need immediately before brewing.
Depending on frequency of your daily brew, start with 12 oz bag of 1378 Coffee Co's freshly roasted to order whole bean coffee and slowly increase to 2 lb bag or if you are planning for an event, 2 or 5 lb bag would be a great start.
