Where to store your coffee – the freezer, fridge or pantry?

Containerphoto_JPGThis is a popular debate among many coffee enthusiasts for some time.

The best place to store coffee is neither the freezer nor refrigerator, because they are moist environments. Moisture, and in some cases other odors inside the fridge or freezer will ruin your coffee beans or grounds. The coffee flavor will deteriorate.

Placing coffee in an air tight container protecting it from air, moisture, heat and light while keeping it in a cool, dark place will help preserve its fresh roasted taste. Thus, the pantry is the ideal location for storage far from its flavor robbing nemesis’.
