    That's a bad idea. Freezing coffee will destroy it... the moisture will move around and screw things up. Just leave it at RT in a cupboard or closet and it'll be in better shape, I can guarantee it.

    Here's a pic of what I've been drinking. It's delicious, moderately priced and looks good with my cans.

    I read that, too. However, after experimenting with several coffees I am not convinced that is the case. FWIW: Some people on coffee geek came to a similar conclusion and caused a bit of a stir in the internet coffee world.

    You can freeze coffee in a sealed container or bag (e.g. coffee bag with vacuum valve covered with tape), as long as you only unseal it after allowing it to defrost completely. This prevents condensation from forming on the beans themselves, so they don't stale. It's quite an effective technique.

    Note that this is completely different from taking a bag of coffee and storing it in the freezer for day to day use. In this scenario, condensation forms on the coffee itself every time you use it, staling it very quickly. Not that it makes much of a difference, since people who do this tend to be buying stale, pre-ground coffee anyway.

    Ideal way to freeze coffee beans:

    Weigh out your serving sizes into snack size Ziploc bags. Place the bags into a Mason jar, and put the jar in the freezer. Remove the bags as needed. That way the beans are not subject to thawing and condensation. I've found this to be good for 2-3 months, but no longer than that. The beans eventually do go stale.

    I am considering buying a AeroPress.
    From what I have read it seems to give a more tasty coffee than a press pot, and be easier to clean. Can not go wrong with that... [​IMG]
