BUY JUST ENOUGH
Like fresh produce, it is best to purchase only enough whole coffee beans to last you a week. Grind the beans as you need them.
KEEP IT DARK AND COOL
Store your whole beans in an airtight, opaque container - away from moisture, heat and light.
TO FREEZE OR NOT TO FREEZE?
If you do not use your beans up within a week or two, your next best option is to freeze your beans (never store them in the fridge). Double bag the beans in ziploc bags, making sure to get all the air out. You can store whole beans in the freezer for up to a month. Once your beans have been frozen and thawed, do not refreeze.
