How to Store Coffee

You’ve got your coffee, now what? Learn about how to store coffee to make sure it’s at its best when you’re ready to brew.

My coffee storage rules were set in stone. Buy only whole bean, buy only what I needed for a week and grind it just before brewing. Store any extra beans in an air tight container; keep that container in a cool, dark and dry place. And no matter what, don’t store coffee in the fridge or freezer, no matter what some might say. The rules worked well for me, keeping my morning supply of coffee fresh and flavorful. Then last week, Don Francisco’s shared the results of their coffee storage study that sent me off balance. Most of their results made sense to me, but there were things that I just couldn’t understand.”
