You’ve taken the time to select your coffee and now you’ve brought them home. Now how do you store your coffee?

Here are four helpful tips for storing your coffee beans.

The original packaging does a pretty good job keeping your coffee beans fresh.
When you purchase coffee from Red Cedar Coffee Co. you will notice a little one-way valve on the front of your bag. This valve releases gas from the coffee beans while keeping oxygen out of the bag. The foil bag protects the coffee beans from moisture and light. It’s always best to open one bag of coffee at a time.

Grind your coffee right before you brew.
To maximize the lifetime and flavors of your coffee you will want to grind your coffee right before brewing it. Coffee grinding releases gases and aromas which are important when you brew coffee.

Keep your coffee at room temperature.
Coffee beans can be sensitive to temperature, moisture and air. Keep your coffee away from spices as coffee can quickly absorb odors. We suggest keeping your coffee beans at room temperature out of direct sunlight.

Airtight containers are coffee’s best friend.
The best way to keep your coffee fresh is to remove the air from your storage container. Our Tasting Room has a selection of Airscape containers. We love that the Airscape container has an inner lid with air-valve that forces air out and locks freshness in. The Airscape works great for both whole bean and ground coffee which makes us love it even more.

As seen in the photo:
Our Tasting Room stocks two models of Airscape containers: a ceramic version with bamboo lid and a stainless-steel version.
