    Default Storage

    What do people recommend for storing your beans? Vacuum containers? If so any in particular?

    Thanks

    Is it better to keep beans in these, rather than in their packets they come in? Also, how long do people keep beans for?

    I find those resealed bags fine. I've bought all manner of bean storage equipment over the years and I think they're a waste of money. I'm from Yorkshire though.

    I store them in the bag they came in. Most are used within three weeks.

    I use Airscapes and find them one of the best forms of bean storage, better than keeping them in the bag they came in, very convenient and they do keep the coffee nice and fresh. I have 4 of them now, thanks o some Christmas pressies

    Fresher than storing them in the original bags? Could you tell the difference in a blind test 2-3 weeks after opening?

    I've been using a Coffee Gator. Really impressed but the beans don't stay in there long!!!
