Storing Coffee Correctly

Maunten Blu Coffee Solutions and Suggestions

A quality cup of coffee either using your plunger, dripolator or quality automatic machine starts with having a quality bean……. Maunten Blu Arabica has the bean and you have the means to make a great cup of coffee.

Airtight BLU and Keeping Your Cool

Greatest enemy for any food product is air and moisture and this is particularly significant to coffee beans. To much light is also going to create a difference as Light creates heat so there are a range of factors that are going to attack your coffee beans so we at Maunten Blu won’t tell you what to do but it’s easy to find all over the internet as a guide.

We have researched a bit of the information and by being a qualified chef we are really talking about preservation of foods which is something I have had many years of exploring.

To save it as much as possible:

  • store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature.
  • Coffee beans can be beautiful to look at and obviously great to drink, but avoid clear canisters which will allow light to effect the taste of your coffee.
  • Keep your beans in a dark and cool location.

Coffee’s retail packaging is generally not ideal for long-term storage. If possible, invest in storage canisters with an airtight seal is usually the best way. Maunten Blu by virtue of its partnership roaster uses the state of the art coffee bags to work in line with freshness an storage as best and applicable as  we can.

Freezing Your Beans?

Really up to the individual and what you have been told by grandma or mum when you were growing up but there is a little bit of science behind the issue so consider the basics for an informed decision.

  • Freshness is critical to a quality cup of coffee. Experts agree that coffee should be consumed as quickly as possible after it is roasted, especially once the original packaging seal has been broken.
  • While there are different views on whether or not coffee should be frozen or refrigerated, the main consideration is that coffee absorbs moisture – and odours, and tastes – from the air around it

If you choose to freeze your coffee, quickly remove as much as you need for no more than a week at a time, and return the rest to the freezer before any condensation forms on the frozen coffee.

Hope this information has been useful in providing guidelines that help you enjoy your coffee.
