To get the best out of your coffee, you need to make extra efforts at keeping the taste, aroma and freshness of it. Therefore, it is advisable to use your beans shortly after the purchase.
But, in situations where you cannot completely brew all of them, you need to find ways to preserve their top quality. Remember, the fresher, the better.
You do not want your coffee losing its real essence so it is advisable to grind it right before brewing as this will release the real flavor.
HERE ARE SOME BASIC RULES:
☕ Avoid open packaging - Keep your beans in an airtight container.
☕ Avoid heat - Keep your beans away from direct sunlight, stoves etc.
☕ Avoid light - Keep your beans in a dark container.
☕ Avoid moisture - Keep your beans in dry locations and away from sinks and as a matter of fact - fridges!
DON’T REFRIGERATE ME PLEASE!
While it is important to keep your grounds or beans somewhere cool, the fridge which is being opened several times a day can create too much moisture in the package and because coffee works as a deodorizer, it can also absorb all the aromas from your fridge. So no matter what you ’ve heard - do not make this mistake and keep your beans in the fridge.
DON’T FREEZE ME BABY (UNLESS YOU REALLY MUST)
Yes, yes… we know there are many opinions on keeping your beans in the freezer and even more internet buzz on this subject but we believe it’ s better to stick to the grand rules and just don ’t do it!
If you however decide to break the rules, storing your beans in a deep freezer is better than the fridge ’ s freezer because you won ’t be opening it as often. To avoid freezer-burn, never store your coffee in paper but rather try to store it in its original packaging or in a freezer-safe bag or container. In order to ensure that your beans are fresh, do not store them in the freezer longer than two weeks from the purchase date.
CANISTER – YES PLEASE!
Properly stored, coffee beans will stay good for about a month after roasting. Ground coffee will last for one to two weeks after roasting. Once you ’ve opened your precious coffee, don’t just leave it in the package. Instead, store it in an air-tight container. Minimize air space in the container as much as possible. For best results, use a specially designed air-tight coffee storage container which has air-tight seals to keep air out, along with one-way valves to let carbon dioxide escape.
