Kevin Devin and I have been trading emails on coffee bean (whole or ground) storage options since we are both purchasing some beans from Kevin's brother who lives in Alaska and works at roaster Cafe Del Mundo.
Kevin found this recommendation, which I have summarized to:
- Store beans (whole or ground) in an air tight container
- Store the air tight container in a cool place like a pantry with no direct sunlight on the container. If pantry gets warm, then use a refrigerator but not a freezer.
- The sooner you go from bean to grounds to brewing the better.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Other opinions?
