Roasted Coffee Storage Tips

Buying Kona Coffee at the Store

Greenwell Farms roasts fresh coffee beans daily. Freshly roasted whole bean and ground coffee are promptly packaged in airtight foil bags.  All 8 ounce and larger bags have one-way valves that only allow air out, and nothing in.  This packaging keeps our coffee fresh.  But what about after you open it?

  • Coffee should be stored in an airtight container away from heat and light.
  • Store whole beans at room temperature.
  • Store ground coffee in the freezer.

 

Here is what I do at home.  After I open my bag of Greenwell Farms whole bean 100% Kona coffee, I fold the open top of the bag down, holding it closed with a “chip clip”.  Then I place it in a Zip Lock gallon bag and put it in my cupboard until the next time I make coffee.  If I buy ground, I place it in my freezer instead of the cupboard.    Aloha and Mahalo.
