There are popular misconceptions on the way roasted coffee should be stored and maintained. The enemies of roasted coffee are moisture, air, light, and heat. Storing your coffee away from them will keep it fresher longer. Therefore, an airtight container stored in a cool, dry, dark place is the best environment for your coffee.
Purchase whole bean coffee when possible and store in an airtight glass or ceramic container. Keep vacuum-packed coffee unopened until ready to use and store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. It is not necessary to store coffee in the freezer, and it, indeed, may change the body, flavor and acidity.
