Should I put my coffee in the fridge/freezer?
NO! Whether you have bought whole bean of ground coffee the fridge and freezer will only do damage to the flavour and richness of your coffee. One of the main reasons is that coffee is hygroscopic, which means it absorbs surrounding fragrances and moisture which a fridge and freezer has in abundance. The only exception to this rule is if you were to vacuum seal some coffee, and once removed allow to completely defrost in ambient temperature 24 hours before allowing air back in contact with the coffee.
Is fresh coffee best?
In short, the ideal consumption time is between 7 to 21 days from roast date. Coffee outside of these parameters aren’t going to be bad but they will not be at its best. The reason behind this is when you turn coffee from green to brown you create carbon dioxide as a by-product, the carbon dioxide will seep out of the porous coffee bean over time, also known as resting the coffee. Brewing with coffee that is too fresh will add bitterness and sharpness to the coffee. On the other side of the spectrum coffee more than three to four weeks old will have lacklustre or dull taste. To ensure a delicious cup we recommend buying the right amount of coffee for the consumption in your household and buy beans on the fresher side of the 7-21 days. The FELLOW Atmos Vacuum Canister 1.2L is also a great way to preserve the coffee at it’s ideal as it significantly slows the aging process.
Is it better to buy whole or ground coffee?
The purist in me will say always grind fresh as you are about to use the coffee. Ground coffee will age much faster than whole beans. This is due to much more of the coffee being exposed to air to which dries out the coffee which results in the coffee loosing significant amount of body and complexity. Being pragmatic, I understand not everyone has a grinder at home, the next best thing is keeping your coffee in an airtight container away from direct sunlight or any sources of heat. Depending on your coffee habits another great option is to start with a hand grinder like the Rhino Coffee Hand Grinder, as it’s an inexpensive way to ensure you get the most out of every gram of your coffee.
