Let's Keep The Coffee Fresh

Posted on February 18, 2016 by Ernest Tong

How long does coffee stay fresh after opening the packet?

Here at Coffex Coffee Roasters we want you to enjoy your coffee and have the best experience with each and every cup. So here are some pointers on keeping your coffee fresh.

Roasted coffee is a perishable product. There are four main enemies of roasted beans:

  1. Air
  2. Moisture
  3. Temperature
  4. Light

These culprits are the biggest cause of stale, flavourless brew. We recommend storing your coffee beans (or ground coffee) in a clean, dry, airtight container in a nice cool and dark place. It is not recommended that you store you coffee in the refrigerator, because coffee tends to absorb flavours and moisture and the fridge is quite humid. Freezing coffee is not recommended as taking the coffee in and out of the freezer each time you brew will cause condensation and not allow for airtight storage.

If you follow the above pointers then your coffee should last at least 10 days to a fortnight after opening. After this, the flavour will generally start to fade as the coffee releases gases and becomes stale.
