How To Store Your Coffee, So They Stay Fresh For Longer

Coffee lovers know the importance of keeping their belovedroasted coffee fresh. They are constantly looking for better ways to keep fresh, strongly roasted aroma intact. Once roasted, coffee starts losing its freshness quite fast, so it is necessary to store them properly to ensure longevity. Thus, one needs to consume the coffee at a moderate pace and keep it securely to retain its original taste and flavor.

Keeping your coffee beans fresh is a straightforward and basic process, and in this article, we will walk you through this process of keeping your coffee fresh and aromatic for a more extended period.

How To Store Your Coffee, So They Stay Fresh For Longer

  1. Buy sufficient quantity

The best way to preserve your coffee is to avoid buying them in bulk. The optimum amount of coffee is the amount you expect to consume in a month. If you go beyond that, your coffee tends to lose its beautiful aroma and flavor or, in short, its “freshness.” Thus, buying them in moderate quantities will ensure you consume freshly roasted coffee every time.

  • Keep away from air, heat, and light

To preserve the freshness of your coffee beans, make sure you keep them away from the agents of deterioration, namely light, heat, moisture, and air. To keep these agents out, always keep your coffee in air-tight containers after opening your package. We also suggest keeping your coffee in a cool, dry and shaded place to keep the aroma and taste of your roasted coffee intact.

  • Store in an air-tight container

We cannot emphasize enough the importance of air-tight containers for storing your coffee. While kitchen containers do the job well, the best way to preserve your coffee is in specialized air-tight coffee containers like those by KCROASTERS. Their Hario Coffee Canister is specially designed to keep your coffee beans away from moisture, heat, or air, keeping your coffee fresh, aromatic, and delicious for a long time.

  • Avoid moisture

When it comes to preserving roasted coffee, the greatest enemy amongst all those agents of deterioration is moisture. If your coffee comes in contact with too much moisture, they tend to clot together, creating a stony, sour mess. Thus, it is crucial to store coffee in a dry space, preferably in air-tight containers, to avoid contact with moisture.

  • Keep your coffee away from heat

Coffee needs to be stored in a cool area to avoid deterioration by heat. While we do not advise keeping them in refrigerators, they do need to be kept in a place where no direct sunlight or any form of heat can reach them. Places like kitchen countertops, cabinets are perfect if they are away from ovens or stoves. Likewise, we would also advise you to keep your coffee away from any shelves near windows.

  • Even light roasts prefer the dark

Coffee lovers tend to keep their beautiful coffee collections displayed in glass containers on kitchen tops to show off their collection and get that aesthetic appeal. While it does look beautiful and deserves admiration, keeping them displayed on kitchen tops under a lot of light can be very harmful to your coffee.

While the best way to avoid that is to store them in containers and keep them inside dark cabinets, you can keep them in open areas if you store your coffee in unique air-tight coffee canisters. These canisters are specially designed to keep out the heat, moisture, and air and will keep your coffee fresh and delicious.
