    Hi Tej,
    I must admit I do love my morning cup of coffee. I don’t think I would be able to start my day without it. A sweet addiction I would say. Anyway, I freeze my excess coffee that I won’t be needing for a week or so. This seems to keep it pretty fresh. I also use inexpensive vacuum sealing bags to keep what I have out fresh. I’ll try your suggestion of keeping my excess in a cool dark area and see how this goes. Thanks for the info.

      Hi Jerome,

      I am the same way in that I don’t think I could start my day without my morning cup of coffee. 🙂

      I usually use air-tight containers to keep what I have outside fresh. I am curious to see how the vaccuum sealing bags will work out – I will try experimenting with those soon to see the difference.

      Thank you for taking the time to comment and for dropping by.

    Hi Tej,
    I love to drink coffee in the morning and I don’t like to go to the grocery store every day, I plan my shopping for every week or very two weeks.
    So your article about how to keep coffee fresh at home comes on the right time, as you said a good idea to do is to keep it in the freezer, my question for you is this: do I put the coffee container in the freezer just like it, but at the moment I want to take it out of the freezer I need to take the whole coffee container, would be a better idea to place small amount of coffee before I put it the freezer so when I want to take out some coffee I would get one container at the time, what do you think?

      Hi Alejandra, you ask a really good question. If you do decide to put coffee in the freezer, I would make sure that you’re using an air-tight container or air-tight bag. The national coffee association recommends not to keep the coffee in the freezer for more than 30 days. So to answer your question, I think it’s a better idea to store smaller amounts of coffee in the freezer if possible. Since the coffee’s taste is affected by air, moisture, heat and light there is a chance of the taste being affected if you were to take out what you needed and put the rest back into the freezer.

      Hope this helps out and thank you for commenting.

    Hi Tej,
    There was some great information here about coffee bean storage. I usually get two 2lbs. bags of gourmet coffee beans at a time and store one bag in the freezer while using the other bag from the refrigerator. Once I’m done with the first bag I get the second bag from the freezer and keep it in the refrigerator. I grind the beans each time for the best tasting coffee and I never store ground coffee because it always tastes awful.
    Thanks,
    Lauren
