What is the shelf life of the coffee?
Oh hell, we just drink as fresh as possible!
The general industry standard says 1 year from roast date, this is what others in the industry suggest but we say the fresher the better and that is why we roast upon order, because it just tastes so much dam better when its fresh.
How to store Coffee to extend its shelf life?
Coffee does degrade over time and degrades faster depending on the surface area - which means that whole beans will keep longer than ground coffee. This is the same concept as with spices. So, it is best to buy whole beans and then grind them as needed for maximum freshness and coffee flavor.
The best way to store these beans is to place them in a tightly closed container in the freezer and grind fresh only the amount you plan to use that day. Storing coffee in this way will keep out moisture and other contaminants.
The best way to store ground coffee to keep it fresh longer is by also storing it in your freezer immediately after use. Storing coffee in the freezer does not actually freeze the coffee, so it is always ready for use without any defrosting.
