@mit_hirani - I have a small 250g ceramic airscape on the counter which I fill from the big 1kg metal one stored on top of a kitchen unit. Means I can get the cheaper deals on buying bigger bags

I use a white ceramic airscape, wood lid, really nice container! 👍 was interested in atmos 

Airscape metal or Ceramic.

@hubcap

Ah sorry yeah was reading half asleep I meant the valve for expelling CO2. Personally I don't keep coffee for long enough for it ever to be an issue I don't think. I'd be interested to see if there is a blind taste test with vacuum sealed vs not.

thanks, I’ve seen you sold some gators previously..how long did the valve things last/how much were replacements? 

atleast with airscape/atom they don’t need replacing 

The valves were about £12 for 6 (Amazon) I didn't keep the canisters for long enough to change a valve (I did change when I sold them)

I much prefer the Airscape Ceramic as they do a better job (imo) and look cool as well.

I'm interested in the Fellow Atmos too. Not sure what size to get though. Was thinking about buying beans 1kg at a time for the best value, but would probably need 2 to be able to fit a kilo of beans in.

Drink more coffee more often. Then it doesn't matter about special storage solutions. 
Seriously, I think unless you are planning on keeping it around for more than a month then I'd probably just use a mason jar. 
I experimented with Vac packing etc. but I didn't find any better results from it.

Do you think it's better to get 250g beans fresh each week, or 1kg at once using a tin to keep beans fresher?

I've got two of the small Airscape Lights and they're pretty good. They hold 250g of beans with the plunger fully sealed but the top lid doesn't seat fully until you're down to around 220g. Not a problem though and they stack without issue. Main reason I chose them over the normal cylindrical versions was that the shape's more efficient for limited cupboard space. That, and they're about £10 cheaper.
