How to Store Coffee


To preserve the freshness of your roasted coffee beans as long as possible, store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperative. Avoid clear canisters which will allow light to compromise the taste of your coffee. Keeping them in a cool, dark location will be your best bet to maintaining the flavour.

We recommend consuming our coffee 1-2 weeks from opening the bag, however it might be 4-6 weeks before they start going stale.

Most home storage containers still let in small amounts of oxygen, which is why food frozen for extended periods suffer freezer burn. When refrigerating or freezing your beans, be sure to use a completely airtight container.

Divide your coffee beans into weekly portions so the beans freeze and defrost once. Use an opaque, freezer-safe bag and remove as much air as possible from the bag. Allow at least one hour for the frozen coffee beans to defrost completely before grinding. Use defrosted beans within 7-10 days.
