Storing Coffee Truths and Myths

The key to great coffee is freshness with oxidation as a fact of life, you need to take preventive measures. Buying whole bean is the first step to freshly grind before you brew your cup of joe. oxidation begins when newly-roasted beans are exposed to the air, this impacts the taste (unwanted bitterness) and the aroma. Klatch Coffee is a ‘roast to order, roaster. We roast and bag the same day to deliver you freshness and goodness. Coffee needs time to rest before use, so the window of delivery works out great.

Myth: This everything you should not do to store your specialty coffee. Storing in the freezer, and or refrigerator, is the best way to keep freshness.

Truth:  Avoid these four points to ensure fresh coffee beans.

1. Moisture: Keeping the beans dry – Not just any coffee container will do the job. You need an airtight vacuum.

2. Air: Air tightness – Don’t assume that the more complicated the coffee container is, the better it will be for your coffee’s freshness.

3. Heat: Protect from heat – Keep away from stove and windows. Store in a cool place.

4. Light: Keep away from light – This means natural light too. Store in a dark place.

You want to store your coffee in a moister free, cool dark place such as a cabinet in an airtight Klatch bag. To maintain freshness coffee beans needs their oils that keep the flavor in the coffee. Storing coffee ideally in a cool and dry place, with our Klatch Coffee bag it has a re-lock able pocket zipper and one-way degassing valve. This one-way valve is designed to allow pressure to be released from an airtight package while not allowing external atmosphere to enter the package. Bags block out moisture and UV rays.

Coffee is hygroscopic meaning that coffee will absorb moisture from the air around it, as well as any odors and tastes in the air. This is how you ensure you will have the freshest.
