Storing Coffee Beans - How To Store Coffee Beans
Please tell me how long coffee beans stay fresh. Also, how long should they be stored?
Coffee beans are at their peak within 24 to 72 hours after roasting and begin to quickly stale after that (within a week, most of the original flavor will have deteriorated). It is best to buy fresh-roasted coffee in quantities that you will use within 7 to 10 days.
I, personally recommend grinding your beans as you need them and storing the whole beans in an air-tight canister. With that said, following are some guidelines for storing coffee beans:
Store your coffee in the bags it came in if
they are heat sealed film or foil. Once these bags have been opened, you can
either transfer the coffee to a clean, dry,
air-tight canister, or simply
roll the top of the bag closed, forcing out as much air as possible, and
seal the bag with a piece of tape or a rubber band.
