The Best Way to Store Your Coffee Beans
The greatest enemies of coffee beans are air, moisture, heat, and light.
Coffee is hygroscopic, which means it acts like a tiny sponge. Coffee absorbs moisture and odors in the air around it. That's exactly why it is recommended to leave coffee beans close to perfumes bottles, because they will naturally absorb the more volatile fragrant molecules.
Don't leave your beans in your grinder out in the open on the counter, especially if it is near your stove or any other heat source.
The best place to store coffee beans is in a cool, dark place inside an airtight container.
If you don't have an airtight container, keep your beans inside the bag you bought your deTerroir coffee. We offer our coffees in 100% recyclable bags that seal to facilitate storage.
However, this is not ideal for long term storage. If possible, invest in a container with an airtight seal. If you wish to keep your beans beyond three months, keep them vacuum-packed in the freezer.
