If you’re a savvy coffee drinker who wants to extend the freshness of your coffee beans, the way you store your coffee will be just as important as how you brew it.

Proper storage can help maintain the freshness and flavor of your coffee for a longer period of time, slowing down the aging process (don’t forget, coffee is a food product afterall). 

The key to keeping your coffee beans fresh is to protect them from their four biggest enemies: air, moisture, heat, and light. When exposed to these elements, coffee beans will more quickly lose their flavor and aroma.

To prevent this decline in your coffee beans, it's important to store your coffee in an airtight container in a cool, dark, and dry place. This will help protect it from exposure to air, moisture, heat, and light, which will impact the rate your coffee beans show age.

One great storage solution to help keep your coffee fresh is our Five Star Coffee Airscape Storage Container by Planetary Design. These storage containers use innovative inner lid technology to force oxygen out of the canister (rather than trapping it like traditional storage containers). This airless storage system helps to protect your coffee from exposure to air and maintain freshness and flavor.

The container is reusable, refillable, and is ideal for storing more than just coffee. You can also use it to store other items like tea, spices, pet treats, and more. 

If you want to keep your coffee beans fresher longer, don’t forget safe storage.
