Proper Hemp Coffee Storage to Maximize Freshness and Flavor 

  

Keep beans airtight and cool

Your beans’ greatest enemies are air, moisture, heat, and light. To preserve your beans’ fresh roasted flavor as long as possible:

  • store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature. 

  • avoid clear canisters which will allow light to compromise the taste of your coffee. 

  • Keep your beans in a dark and cool location. A cabinet near the oven is often too warm, and so is a spot on the kitchen counter that gets strong afternoon sun.

  • Coffee's retail packaging is generally not ideal for long-term storage. If possible, invest in storage canisters with an airtight seal.

 

Buy the right amount

Coffee begins to lose freshness almost immediately after roasting. Try to buy smaller batches of freshly roasted coffee more frequently - enough for one or two weeks. If you prefer to keep your beans in an accessible and/or attractive container, divide your coffee supply into several smaller portions, with unused portions in an air-tight container. This is especially important when buying pre-ground coffee, because of the increased exposure to oxygen. If you buy whole beans, grind the amount you need immediately before brewing.
