How to Keep Your Coffee Fresh and Delicious!

Everyone loves a good cup of coffee – whether it’s in the morning or late at night, hot or cold, cappuccino or espresso. But one thing that nobody enjoys is stale coffee. Over time, most coffees lose their flavor and aroma, which can be a real letdown for those who look forward to their daily cup of coffee. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to ensure that your coffee remains fresh and delicious for weeks or even months.

Store in an Airtight Container

The key to keeping your coffee fresh is to keep out as much air as possible during storage. The best way to do this is by storing your beans in an airtight container. This keeps oxygen from entering the container and ruining the flavor of the beans over time. Glass jars with tight-fitting lids work great for this purpose, but make sure they’re food-safe so you don’t end up with any nasty surprises when it comes time to drink your coffee! Metal containers also work well if you prefer something more durable—just remember not to store them near strong magnets or high heat sources like ovens or microwaves.

Keep it Cool & Dark

Heat and direct sunlight are both enemies of freshly ground coffee beans, so make sure you store yours in a cool place away from any sources of light. Refrigeration isn’t necessary for short-term storage (1 week) but may be beneficial for longer periods (up to 1 month). Just make sure that before you put them in the fridge, you transfer them into an airtight container—plastic bags aren't ideal since they don't protect against moisture very well. Longer term storage should be done in a dry place at room temperature with no direct sunlight exposure; properly stored beans can last up to 6 months this way!

Grind Right Before Brewing

It may sound counterintuitive, but grinding your coffee right before brewing will actually help it stay fresher longer! That’s because once ground, the oils and aromas inside the beans start breaking down almost immediately—the finer the grind, the faster this process occurs—so grinding only what you need right before using it guarantees maximum freshness every single time. If you don’t have a grinder at home, we offer pre-ground options that are just as good as freshly ground beans.


Keeping your coffee fresh doesn’t have to be complicated – just remember these three simple tips: store in an airtight container; keep cool & dark; and grind right before brewing! With these guidelines in mind, you can enjoy all of your favorite coffees without worrying about losing any of their delicious flavors. So go ahead – pour yourself another cup – it should taste just as good today as it did when you bought it!
