Glad you are okay. Agree if i got Coronavirus i think coffee would be least of my worries if i am okay though will need folk roasting and delivering for my daily fix

Water will be my friend if ill perhaps a touch of dilute juice of some type doubt much isotonic drinks will be available and often a bit sugary for me ?

A cocktail of paracetamol and ibuprofen made a decent difference. Agree plenty of water, crackers and simple foods. 

None of our stocked booze would get tapped as on high alert for our young kids.

So looking for tips at freezing a few beans just in case lol

Are zip lock bags okay for over say 250g bags or de bag them first

Once out of freezer and defrosted should they be stored as normal

Is it practical to remove small amounts of frozen beans and leave rest in freezer like say peas

Thanks

I just purchased this from Amazon, bags are perfect size for the amounts we are likely to freeze,

It worked fabulously as long as you use the bag sealer which I didn't, found and used it and worked a treat.

I've had these a while and on average about half of them worked! (using the bag seal too) the other half leaked.

I don't know whether a sharp bean punctures the bag, but once they start to leak they won't be airtight again and after a coupe of hours after pumping the air out, they start to leak again.

Funnily enough the ones that don't leak seem to last for many different bean fills, so whether it's a manufacturing problem or a sharp bean at the 'wrong' angle piercing the bag, I don't know?
