    nitrogen and coffee beans

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    can anyone tell me why hermetic nitrogen plastic bags is or seems to be the new way to store green bean.???
    And is there real proof of this system and that it works?
    Or is the normal burlap bag enough to store?

    ...and the hermetic bags that you speak of are not used with nirtogen, instead the air is squeezed out by hand and then cable tied leving a small amount of air in the bag.

    Far better than hemp/burlap/jute bags on their own.

    Proof? I just said so!
    ;D

    More proof? Try the difference yourself!
    ::)

    I thought he might have been referring to Penta (vac) packs. ;)
