There are popular misconceptions on the way roasted coffee should be stored and maintained.
The enemies of roasted coffee are moisture, air, light, and heat. Storing your coffee away
from them will keep it fresher longer. Therefore, an airtight container stored in a cool,
dry, dark place is the best environment for your coffee.
Some people store their coffee in the freezer thinking it is going to keep the coffee fresh.
Here are a couple of reasons why storing coffee in your freezer is a bad idea:
      flavoring syrups and oils that are used to make flavored coffee. However, if given the chance, coffee
      can also absorb other things like the flavor of seafood or the moisture that your freezer produces.
      This moisture will in turn deteriorate the coffee and even make it taste like, well… like a freezer.
    * When coffee is roasted, the beans release their oils and essences to give the coffee its distinct flavor.
      You’ll notice these oils are more prominent on dark-roasted coffee and espresso. When you break down

oils by freezing, you are removing the flavor.
Think about it…. if coffee tasted better and fresher from the freezer, then you would buy it in the frozen food
section, your local coffee shop might look more like an ice cream parlor, and our power bills would be through
roof trying to maintain a meat-locker the size of a warehouse.
When to Freeze Coffee
When to Refrigerate Coffee
Never, unless you are conducting a science experiment on how long it takes to ruin perfectly good coffee. The fridge

is one of the absolute worst places to put coffee.
