Bean Vac

If you are a coffee lover, you know how much of a difference the smell of a great cup of coffee makes in your day. There are probably days that it is the only reason you get out of bed. The smell drifts upstairs as you have the timer on your machine and there is nothing you can do to resist that first cup of roasted fresh coffee to start your day.

This is a great way to keep your coffee beans fresh and tasty. If you want to get the best flavor and aroma in your cuppa, you can’t do without a vacuum coffee bean sealer. Just place coffee beans inside, pull the handlebar shut, and watch the powerful motorized vacuum and soft silicone seal create a precise fresh-guarding environment.

Coffee Storage Tips

Never store your coffee in the refrigerator. Coffee will absorb flavors and aromas from other food products in your refrigerator. Freezing coffee can also have a damaging effect, and we do not recommend this practice unless you will not use-up your supply of coffee for a prolonged period of time [two weeks or more]. Coffee should be stored in a clean, dry, airtight container, in a cool, dark place.

Buying Smart

It’s important to buy coffee in smaller quantities, rather than to stock up. The sooner it is consumed after roasting, the fresher and more aromatic the coffee will be. Exposure to air and moisture will begin to degrade the quality of the coffee beans, so it is ideal to purchase freshly roasted coffee beans in quantities that you will consume within two to three weeks of buying, keeping the coffee stored securely in your Bean Vac.
