Default Goffee storage

We just got our first 5 pound bag of Costa Rican coffee beans and are faced
with a storage issue.
We plan to grind 1 pound or less at a time and store the remainder as whole
beans.
What do you coffee guru's use for (roasted) bean storage?

Thanks,

Cea, if one is going to grind only a pot's worth of beans at a time,
does one thaw the beans first (a short time, I presume) or just put them
from freezer into grinder and go?

Hi Barb,

Because coffee has so little moisture- it is reduced to 12% and then
roasted at 400 something or other, the accepted method in my world,
is take the beans from the freezer to the grinder, despite the
condensation on the outside of the bag.


Good to know.
Thanks!
Happy Holidays Barb.

Keep your beans in the freezer if you must but not necessary if you
drink as much coffee as I do :-) A pound barely lasts a week around here.
You should let cold beans warm a bit before grinding and definitely warm
before brewing. You want to be sure to release all the flavour. If the
hot water has to warm cold coffee first, it may not be able to extract
all the flavour - for espresso this is critical.

Just went out and bought some of those freezer bags with the vacuum pump
and they seem to be working just fine. We now keep the beans in the wine
cabinet.
Nice and cool and dark. We go through a pound in a week as well!
