Please store your coffee in an airtight container in a cool dark place (kind of like your spices). Try to be certain that your container does not have any residual acids from anything that was stored in it previously. Please do not store it in the fridge or freezer. Coffee is porous and will absorb the flavors around it. Using a metal container will impart a metallic taste to your beans, so please avoid those. We suggest that you drink your coffee within two weeks of the roast (ship) date to ensure you will have the best drinking experience possible. We roast to order daily.
