Stop drinking stale coffee or throwing away unused beans. A few simple practices will keep your coffee fresh until you consume it. You should enjoy your favorite coffee beans to the last brew! Give our hints a try!
Remember, Coffee is Perishable.
The lifespan of a newly opened bag of coffee, left exposed to the air, is a few days (about the same as a loaf of fresh bread). If left exposed to air, coffee will become noticeably stale after only a few days. Unopened bags will keep for about a year.Freezer Burn is Bad (for coffee and other foods).
We’ve always refrigerated or frozen our whole coffee beans. However, ensure they are well containerized and protected from air flow to avoid freezer-burn. The danger of putting them in the freezer is that your coffee beans can get freezer-burn like other frozen items. So it you want to protect your beans while in the freezer, make sure they are well protected!Keep you beans Air-Tight.
Once you open the package, air will start to diminish the freshness of the coffee beans and they will go off-taste in a few days. We recommend using a clip to keep the package sealed tight or pour the beans into an airtight container. We’ve found many coffee bean bags come with a resealing mechanism that works pretty well.
So drink up–but make sure to keep your beans fresh until used for super taste!
