If you got them on July 10 and even if you assume they were roasted a few days prior, theyd be going on about four weeks old now which means theyll be long past their best.
It depends on what you store them in, but theyll deteriorate rapidly (and instantly) if not stored correctly.Originally Posted by 20233C3C3F36530 link=1280908255/0#0 date=1280908255
Even when stored correctly theyll generally (it varies by the bean) start going south rapidly after about 12-14 days and will be bordering on undrinkable by about 21 days.
Ive seen a couple of CSers mention them and they seemed to be getting good results from them.Originally Posted by 20233C3C3F36530 link=1280908255/0#0 date=1280908255
The key is obviously to avoid exposing the beans to air and light, so for me the best option are 250g one-way valve bags (available through Beanbay and numerous sponsors).
They work beautifully and are quite cost effective.
