It is easy to spot truly fresh beans; just look for a glossy appearance due to their oils still escaping from the beans. Contrary to most other products, seeing oil residue on your hands or in the bag is a good thing.
There are a couple of exceptions to the glossy bean rule:
Another indicator of fresh roasting is in the packaging. Freshly roasted beans emit gases, if the bag in which whole beans are stored is heat sealed and does not have a valve it means that the beans have stopped off-gassing. If you receive a heat sealed bag of Serious Coffee beans you’ll always see a valve, they’re that fresh. Look at your package of coffee, is it heat sealed requiring you to cut it open? Does it have a valve? If not, how long has it been since it was roasted and left to sit on the shelf?
The fridge is not the place to store coffee in any form, ground or whole bean even if in an airtight container. It isn’t cold enough to keep your coffee fresh, and because coffee works as a deodorizer, it will absorb all the aromas in your fridge. This will definitely have a negative impact on the final taste of your cup of coffee.
It is always best not to store ground coffee.
Ideally, in order to ensure the freshest cup of coffee possible, do not store more than one week’s worth of beans at a time. This isn’t always practical, so if you know you will have beans for longer than that, you can store them in your freezer.
Here are a few things you need to do to keep your beans from becoming freezer-burned.
Buy the best quality and freshest beans possible to ensure that you have a café-like experience at home. By purchasing the freshest beans you will have delectable scents, rich crema, and bright flavours waiting for you to enjoy…Seriously!
