How to Properly Store Coffee

Quality, freshness, education. That’s what The Roasterie is all about. Here are some usefull tips on how to store your coffee so that it is fresh and ready to brew when you are.

•Make sure that you have the right grind for your coffee, as well as the right filter for your brewer.

•We suggest not pre-grinding any coffee. Coffee contains CO2 which keeps it fresh. As soon as the coffee is ground it immediately loses its CO2, causing it to become stale. This is especially true for espresso grind.

•Oxygen breaks down the flavor profile of ground coffee within 48 hours

•Once a bag of coffee has been opened, it should be stored in an air-tight container at room temperature.

•Avoid extreme temperature changes, such as storing coffee in the refrigerator or freezer as moisture will attach itself to the coffee and deteriorate the beans.

•Coffee absorbs odors that are around it. Be careful not to store your coffee near anything that may be absorbed by the coffee.
