How to Properly Store Your Green Coffee Beans and Roasted Coffee Beans
Do you about want make your own roastery house but you confused how to keep your green beans stay fresh for a long time? then this blog page is right for you.
Green coffee beans are porous and hygroscopic. This means they readily absorb and retain moisture. For example, if you store your fresh green coffee beans near garlic – the beans will take on the aroma and flavor of garlic! so stay away your green beans from something like that to keep your green beans are fresh and not contamination.
Keep them in containers or sealable plastic bags in a place that is pretty fairly temperature stable, dark and not particularly humid then your green beans will stay fresh for months even years! while for roasted coffee beans they`re easier to store. Roasted coffee beans will maintain most of their coffee quality for 1 to 2 weeks at room temperature. It is best to keep the roasted coffee beans in an airtight coffee container. If you choose to store the coffee beans in a glass container, keep it away from the light. A glass container of coffee beans should be kept in a cupboard.
Do not store your coffee in the refrigerator or the freezer.!!
Some of people still think that leaving your coffee inside your refrigerator or freeze them is a good way to store your coffee for long time BUT Like I wrote before that leaving your coffee in the freezer can cause the beans to absorb the odors and flavors from the air around it. Additionally, the move from the counter to one of these colder settings is especially bad for your beans because the coffee absorbs the moisture.
Roasted coffee beans create carbon dioxide gas, which can degrade the flavor of the coffee if not allowed to escape. In the first few days after roasting the coffee beans, the coffee container should be opened to vent out the carbon-dioxide gas. There are also "valve bags" that can be used to store the roasted coffee beans. Valve bags will allow the carbon dioxide gas to escape from the bag of coffee without letting oxygen in.
