Neither! Coffee should be kept in the pantry to maximize taste and ensure that your blend or bean’s flavor is uncorrupted.

Keeping your coffee in the fridge or freezer creates moisture in the package and if you know anything about coffee, you know that moisture is coffee’s kryptonite. Too much moisture in the package will dull your favorite blends’ flavor and turn your beans bad before you get a chance to enjoy it.

Additionally, coffee in the fridge or freezer will always fluctuate in temperature when you take it out and put it back in daily. The condensation that occurs when your coffee is out in room temperature will turn into even more of that dreaded moisture, leading to a dull, lifeless cup of coffee. Why soil one of the best parts of your day?

So, what’s the best way to store your coffee in the pantry? An air-tight container will keep your favorite blend or bean fresh longer.

“But, I bought an extra package of Grumpy Goat’s Brazilian Medium Roast?”

The only time it’s acceptable to place your coffee in the freezer is when you’ve bought in bulk. (And, honestly, if you haven’t tried our Brazilian Medium Roast, you don’t know what you’re missing!).

According to The National Coffee Association, you’re in luck! Coffee can be stored in the freezer for up to one month. Once you’re ready to crack into our Brazilian blend, keep it in a cool, dry cupboard or pantry to keep it as fresh and tasty as possible.
