About storing ground coffee
by Richard D.
I keep my ground coffee in an airtight container. Should I store it in the fridge, or freezer, or neither between uses?ANSWER:
It depends on how long it takes you to use the ground coffee. If you finish off each batch of coffee within about a week, and keep the container tightly sealed, then simply leave the container on the kitchen counter or in a cupboard.
If you have a large volume of ground coffee, store most of it in the freezer, also in a sealed container. And then "decant" enough coffee into your kitchen counter container for the next few days.
If you buy whole beans and then grind them yourself, keep the whole beans in the freezer and grind enough for just one or two days at a time.
NEVER put your coffee in the fridge, ground or whole bean.
