Storing Coffee

There are a few golden rules when it comes to coffee storage.  Consider these to ensure your coffee is kept fresh for longer.  

* Once the bag has been opened, reseal the bag ensuing you squeeze out any excess air.

* Most coffee bags will have a one way valve on them.  This allows air to escape and avoids air entering the bag again.

* If you want to decant your coffee into another container, ensure it is free from smells from other food stuffs.

* Coffee does not need to be kept in the fridge or freezer.  Simply store it in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight.  Like any food with a shelf life.

* Ideally, buy whole bean coffee and grind the coffee fresh your self and grind it just before brewing.
