How should I store my coffee purchase?
Whole bean coffee will stay fresh at room temperature in a sealed container for about 23 days. Ground coffee will lose freshness much faster. We suggest using a glass jar in the refrigerator for extended life. Glass prevents outside odors from absorbing into the beans, and does not produce it's own smell. Grind beans just before brewing for peak freshness and flavor. For even longer life, you can keep whole beans in the freezer. They do not need to be thawed to brew.
