Question: How do I store my coffee beans?
Answer: How you store your coffee depends on what form it is in, mainly either whole bean or ground coffee. Here is a quick run-down on storing coffee:
- Whole green (raw) beans - In a tightly sealed container, kept in a cool spot out of the light. Will keep for about a year.
- Whole roasted beans - Store at room temperature in a non-clear container, or in a dark place. Will last about 1 to 2 weeks.
- Ground roasted coffee - Sealed container again, but will only stay fresh for a few days at this point. Only grind what you will quickly use
