The very last thing you want to do with coffee or anything else high in anti-oxidants is to heat it other than for preparation and immediate consumption.

Yeah, I don't like microwave ovens either. Oh well, I'll just buy ground coffee in bulk and store it in my air tight jars that I use to keep herbs in. What willl be...will be.

Fill the jars as full as you can. You want as little air as possible. Oxygen "burns" the beans over time. That is why the good stuff is always vacuum sealed.

Is it obvious I love my high-quality coffee? I actually pay alot of money for my coffee and don't want it to go bad in storage.

LOL, yes we appreciate a great cup of coffee in the morning. We found a wonderful and cheap Italian roast incredibly cheap and soo good! The crema is wonderful, yes we have a coffee machine and are spoiled rotten coffee snobs. And JR gives it to me with creatively crafted patterns with my organic full fat milk, just as I like it!

I agree, do not freeze and seal roasted beans in a bag. I left the oilfield business in 1991 and started a import/export company with a Guatemalan friend who is a coffee broker. He developed his own formula of beans and roasted them a darker roast before we got together. A coffee company did a very poor job of marketing his product and asked me if I could try. Knowing I'm from the oil and gas business he thought I'd have a good line of bullshit.

He sent me samples from different lots. What we experienced was roasted beans over 2-years tasted terrible where 1-year still very good. So I ended up selling everything to a roaster at deep discount prices for him to add to his coffee's as fillers.

Then came the import of fish/seafood

Then came investment in the sportfishing trade on the west coast.

Then finally he owed me money, never paid me and never heard from him again.

Then back in the oil and gas biz...

My wife hated it but liked the money

Also I would say the darker the roast the shorter the shelf life. Just a guess...

Probably good advice Taco cheers.gif

Back in ye olde days chicory was used as a coffee substitute. My dad told me they had difficulties adjusting to coffee again after the war because they got so used to the substitute.

There's even a chicory museum in this godforsaken town

Those coon asses/cajuns love their chicory in their coffee. Community coffee is laced with it.
