How to store fresh coffee…

Coffee BeansIt’s vitally important to store fresh coffee in the correct way in order to maintain its pungency and flavour. People can invest a significant amount of money in a coffee machine; therefore, it makes sense to use coffee that’s in peak condition.

  • Coffee beans in whole form stay fresh for a longer period of time than ground coffee. If you’re a regular fresh coffee drinker, it’s worth investing in a coffee grinder – these are available in a range of different sizes depending upon your consumption
  • Don’t grind a large quantity of coffee at any one time, only grind enough for one or two days worth of consumption at a time. Any ground coffee that you’re not intending to use straight-away, place in an air tight container and store in a cool, dry place
  • Coffee is not a product that can be bought in bulk. If you do a weekly shop, try getting into the habit of only buying what you’re likely to use over the course of that week. This way, it means that you don’t have coffee sitting around losing its pungency and flavour. Don’t put coffee beans or ground coffee in the fridge or freezer
  • If you use a coffee grinder, make sure that you give it a clean after each use. This will prevent the fresh coffee ground being cross contaminated with stale coffee ground
