    Coffee bean storage, opinions pls

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Gday Guys,

    Ive purchased some roasted coffee beans in anticipation of the impending arrival of my much awaited Sunbeam 6910 and grinder (please, make it THIS week).

    Anyway, whats the best means of storing my beans? Fridge, or room temperature, air tight or not, plastic, or something else.

    Thanks.

    Cheers, darky.................

    This has been discussed a few times.

    or do a search.

    Basically - if they are FRESHLY roasted, the one way valve option is best.
    Otherwise, airtight container out of direct light is probably best.

    Thanks mate. Will check the link. I purchased them before Christmas (when I ordered my machinery) and they are currently in a valved looking bag. After opening should I leave them in this bag, and store in an airtight???

    Sounds like the best option for them. Given their age, the bag is probably not going to do much apart from keep coffee oils off the inside of the container.

    Any idea how old they were when purchased? IE: Are they supermarket or large coffee chain beans or from an actual roaster?

    Thanks Mate.

    A friend of mine is close to retirement in his (our) current profession. Over the past 12 months or so he has researched, trialled, errored, and with the importation of a large coffee roaster from Turkey (I think) has set himself up for is "next job". He is currently the only coffee roaster in a large provincial Victorian country town.

    Id tell you more but with CS site sponsors etc here, Im fairly sure Id get the "coke n sarse" quicker than a Nescafe Blend 43 drinker if I went on.................... ;D ;)

    Cheers, darky.....................
