Coffee storage at home or at workplace
Not everybody knows how to keep coffee and its taste fresh over time and it’s never enough to draw your attention to the negative impact of a bad storage.
Over time a number of misconceptions has developed on coffee storage and our aim is to provide practical advices on how to store coffee and what you should avoid, such as storing your coffee in the fridge or in glass jars that will bring to results that are exactly the opposite to the desired ones.
- Buy coffee beans not ground, anytime is possible
It is best to grind coffee right before extraction. Using a hand grinder at home is a gourmet practice, that gives great and immediate results and that could really surprise you and your guests.
- Store coffee in a non transaparent container
Coffee should be protected from air, moisture and light. It is ideal to use a container that does not allow light and that seals adequately coffee from the outside.
- Store coffee in a place that is dark, cool and dry
Keeping coffee in a glass jar on a counter in your kitchen is cool but it is not a good idea at all as it will be exposed to light, moisture and heat. Keep your coffee in a place that is not affected by air and sources of moisture, light and heat.
- Buy a quantity that is sufficient for not more than one month
After a month, your coffee will have lost much of its aromas. It is therefore ideal buying it in small quantities that are sufficient to satisfy your short period needs.
- Do not store in the freezer
Coffee oils are an essential part of it and are broken down by freezing the coffee.
- Do not store in the fridge
The fridge is the best place to generate humidity and is full of flavors that are absorbed by the coffee. Not bad your coffe with seafood flavours, isn’t it?
