How to Store Ground Coffee


Question: Should you keep ground coffee in the fridge?

Answer: No, whole beans and ground coffee should never be stored in the fridge or the freezer. Coffee will absorb the moisture in the fridge and freezer and that means the flavor of the beans will be affected.

Quick Tips for Coffee Storage:

  1. Store coffee away from light, heat, and moisture.
  2. Use an airtight container to store your beans.
  3. Buy whole beans and grind them just before brewing for the best coffee experience. There are many affordable grinders on the market. For $60, the Cuisinart Supreme Grind Automatic Burr Mill is a great choice. Only purchase a “burr grinder” because it provides uniform grind and optimum flavor.

Now, go brew some coffee!
