Keeping Coffee Fresh

KEEPING COFFEE FRESH

One of the most important aspects of a good cup of coffee is the freshness of the coffee you start with. Think of coffee like an apple: once you slice it (grind it), you don’t want to leave it out very long, because, like with an apple, oxygen will start to strip away the flavors of roasted coffee.

Keeping Coffee Fresh Myth 1
  • MYTH

Coffee doesn’t really expire.

  • FACT

Unopened, whole-bean coffee will last in our FlavorLock™ sealed bags for 34 weeks. Once opened, grind the coffee, store it in an airtight container, and drink within a week.

Keeping Coffee Fresh Myth 2
  • MYTH

Keep coffee in the freezer to prolong the freshness.

  • FACT

Coffee is best kept at room temperature. When you store it in the freezer or refrigerator, moisture condenses on the coffee and can extract the flavor.

Keeping Coffee Fresh Myth 3
  • MYTH

Once you open the bag, it doesn’t matter where you store it.

  • FACT

Coffee should be stored in an opaque, airtight container at room temperature. FlavorLock™ sealed bags are an excellent, convenient option for storing coffee but any container that blocks the light and keeps out air will work nicely.
