Coffee storage

 

Airtight and Cool

Storage is integral to maintaining your flavoured and non flavoured coffee's freshness and flavour. It is important to keep it away from excessive air, moisture, heat, and light -- in that order -- in order to preserve its fresh-roast flavour as long as possible.  Coffee beans are decorative and beautiful to look at but you will compromise the taste of your coffee if you store your beans in ornamental, glass canisters on your kitchen top.  Doing so will cause them to become stale and your coffee will quickly lose its fresh flavour.


Storing Your Daily Coffee

It is important not to refrigerate your daily supply of coffee because contact with moisture will cause it to deteriorate, sealing the coffee airtight container in the freezer is better than the fridge.  Instead, store coffee in air-tight glass or ceramic containers and keep it in a convenient, but dark and cool, location. Remember that a cabinet near the oven is often too warm, as is a cabinet on an outside wall of your kitchen if it receives heat from a strong afternoon or summer sun. The commercial coffee containers that you purchased your coffee in are generally not appropriate for long-term storage. Appropriate coffee storage canisters with an airtight seal are a worthwhile investment.
