  • Bean storage Local specialty coffee shop

    In my local area ive been able to find one coffee shop that freshly roasts beans themselves.
    They store their beans in this fashion.
    I'm a total coffee noob but i was under the impression that any sunlight/moisture/air ruins the beans
    Pic coming soon, awaiting moderation

    We store ours in windowless bags in a wine fridge...

    My pet hate is the old skool let's just chuck 'em into baskets, buckets, greasy window hoppers or something similar approach. Can't understand why roasters do that....

          I used to buy from a local speciality Roaster with a retail frontage. Quite a big commercial operation
          i was never happy that they dispensed roast beans from a large " carousel" of clear plastic hoppers , 10 or 12 different roasts, each with probably 5 kg in. Right in the shop front window.
          what stopped me buying there was their total inability to know the roast date of any of the beans !

                There's one in my locale too.

                Makes you wonder just how many different roast dates are in the open bins.

                  "Just top it up when it's looking low" right? Not a problem right?

                    That's looks like a place at sunny coast that would have moved in the last year.

                    I really like their Columbian espresso blend. I've only bought from them a few times and sometimes they are willing to get fresher stock from out the back for you. I'm general I haven't had a problem with the freshness from there but I guess it depends if it's a blend that sells a lot and gets replenished often or not.

                        Just remember you have 14 days until the bean degrades and losses condition.

                        Blend52 learned the reality of this industry benchmark.
                        There is literally no way around fresh roasted beans for full flavour[emoji108]

                          Not all beans are bad after 14 days. In point of fact some are just starting to come into peak flavor at or even after that amount of time.

                            ....and that that statement is a gross generalisation. We have some that you wouldn't want to even think about for at least 3 weeks.

                            As always, it depends on the beans and also the palate...

                              Just to make plain English clearer.
                              The keywords I wrote were 'until the bean degrades'.

                              Now if both highly sensitive commenters can explain just how the science in my comment is inaccurate or derogatory it would be appreciated...

                              Right...
                              Whatever, just try and explain that to the roasters and premium coffee houses where I live in Melbourne. [emoji52]
