Storage and Freshness

Storage and Freshness

How long does roasted coffee stay fresh?

We recommend consuming roasted coffee within two weeks of it being roasted.  This will ensure you get a fresh and flavourful cup of coffee. After two weeks, roasted coffee, especially when it is ground, begins to lose its flavour and aroma.  If your roasted coffee beans do go stale, you don’t have to throw them away. Stale coffee beans can be used to make cold brew coffee without compromising taste. 

How should I store roasted coffee?

As with green coffee beans, proper storage is key to maintaining freshness for as long as possible.  After roasting the beans you should allow them to rest and cool for four to six hours. Once the roasted beans have rested they should be stored in a sealed, dry container.
