What Is the Best Way to Store Coffee? - Deepstash
Properly Storing Coffee

The National Coffee Association certainly believes that the best way to store coffee is to put them in an airtight container.

Coffee should be kept in an opaque container that is able to protect it from light and then stored in a cool place.


Purpose of Proper Storage

Different types of coffee lose their freshness easily, such as coffee grounds lose freshness faster than whole beans due to it having a surface area that's exposed to oxygen while whole beans will lose freshness almost as soon as they're done roasting.


Freezing Coffee Properly

Some coffee advocates argue that freezing your coffee will prolong its shelf life but moisture is the enemy of fresh coffee. Storing your coffee in the freezer might also lead to having freezer-burnt coffee.

However, freezing your coffee can keep it fresh for up to a month if you take the right steps:

  1. Divide the product into individually portioned bags before putting it in the freezer.
  2. Seal coffee bags as airtight as possible to prevent air from coming in and out.
