Tips
  • Store in cool, dry area and keep package tightly sealed at all times.
  • For best results, transfer the coffee beans to a canister that blocks out light and has an airtight seal.
  • To extend shelf life, freeze the coffee beans — freeze in covered airtight canister or place beans in heavy-duty freezer bags.
  • Storage time shown is for best quality only — after that, the coffee beans' texture, color or flavor may change, but in most cases, they will still be safe to use if they have been stored properly.
  • If coffee beans develop an off odor, flavor or appearance, they should be discarded for quality purposes.
  • "Best By," "Best if Used By," and "Use By" dates on commercially packaged foods sold in the United States represent the manufacturer's estimate of how long the product will remain at peak quality — in most cases, the coffee beans will still be safe to consume after that date, as long they have been stored properly and the package is not damaged.
  • Freezer time shown is for best quality only — foods kept frozen at 0° F will keep safe keeps indefinitely.
