    Hi there
    For long term storage use the cotton bags and store them in a cool dry location.

    Hi Megs 8888

    I found this info on Coffee FAQ *http://www.thecoffeefaq.com/

    5.3.1 Storing green beans
    Processors and importers store their unroasted beans in cloth (or plastic mesh) bags in cool, dry, and dark locations, with good air circulation. Storing unroasted coffee in airtight plastic is a special issue. Unroasted coffee does best in moderate humidity, mild temperatures, and ventilated storage conditions. If you have these conditions, then storing the beans in breathable containers should work well. However, sealing the beans in airtight plastic may well be superior to exposing them to humid storage conditions, especially if you are able to vacuum seal the container. For general conditions, the average person should be able to simply store their green beans in airtight plastic.

    Hope it helps - Carrie

    Starter packs come in plastic glad bags because you should get through the 4 varieties in a couple of weeks.

    All other BeanBay beans come in 2.5 cotton bags and this is the perfect thing to store them in a cool dry and dark location.

    Punchline is... dont store your starter pack, just roast em!
