Coffee has four age-old enemies; heat, light, air, and moisture. The way coffee is stored is essential to keeping it fresh and ready to enjoy. Storing coffee in conditions that expose it to these elements will cause the coffee to rapidly lose its flavor and freshness.
We suggest our new Airscape Coffee Bean Storage Container. It might surprise you to know that most "airtight" containers aren’t actually airtight. Although they keep additional air from reaching your beans, they don’t expunge the existing air from the container, which means that your coffee will still stale, only at a slower rate. Regardless, no one wants stale coffee. If you like stale coffee, kindly reconsider. We think you’ll like fresh coffee even more.
Our FRC-emblazoned Airscape canister features the patented Airscape lid, which actively forces air out of the can. You’ll even hear a cool swoosh sound when you press down on and lock the lid. All this translates to fresh coffee that stays fresh longer. The Airscape container is made of culinary-grade stainless steel and is resistant to odor retention and nasty coffee stains. This is the premier coffee storage solution.
If you intend to purchase coffee in bulk, the best way to store bulk quantities of coffee is to separate a large quantity into smaller, appropriate containers, like our 1 or 2 lb. Airscape Coffee Bean Storage Containers. Keeping the smaller batch of coffee you intend to use first away from the rest of your bulk coffee helps to ensure the entire quantity is not constantly being exposed to air, light, heat, and moisture.
