    Wine fridge?

    Got a few small thermoelectric wine fridges. I have them set to 14 degrees but suspect they’re more like 16-20. How would beans go in there in air tight containers. Only a few weeks at a time at most.

    Probably okay. The only time you get real troubles is when your beans get wet from condensation and then they go bad. Excessive heat/cold isn't great, but the moisture is the real killer (that and light).
    The beans will be slightly below room temp at 16-20 but probably fine. The only other consideration is why? More hassle when they keep fine in a dark cupboard.

    Only because it get's really hot in our kitchen area in summer.

    If you’ve got a hot kitchen area then the wine fridge will be a far better option than a hot pantry.
