Whole coffee beans deliver the most flavorful coffee; to grind the bean releases its flavor, and for that reason, it's best to grind only what you intend to immediately drink.
Whole bean storage is simple: just leave it in its original packaging and put it in dry storage. Because our packaging includes a one-way degassing valve, the flavor and aroma of your coffee is completely preserved. As coffee beans "rest", they expel excess C02 gasses that, if trapped, disrupt the taste of the coffee. There's no need to place it in any other container or in the refrigerator/freezer - those actions will also disrupt the degassing process and potentially ruin your exceptional coffee experience. Just buy a bag and you're all set.
