How to Keep Your Coffee Fresh
You invested in great tasting coffee, let us help you Keep Your Coffee Fresh. You will notice our bags have a one-way vent. It is there to allow gasses to be released without permitting air to invade. You may see a sealed bag of coffee swell just sitting in your pantry. That’s totally normal. After opening, most people just roll the bag down, taped shut; that is OK. Even stored like that for a few weeks, our coffee will STILL taste better than other store brands. But, for best results, find a way to heat seal it shut. There are devices on the internet you can buy or reseal the end of the bag by running a hot iron over one side at the end and then the other (sealing about the first 1/3 inch from the top)
A better choice is using an air-tight coffee storage container. There are LOTS of over-priced coffee “gator” systems for sale. You will notice they all look pretty much the same! An aluminum can with a fancy graphic and a lid that swings over the top and clips down. These systems all have a one-way valve built-in. The issue with those, other than the price, the one-way valves need to be replaced frequently.
Also, what happens every time you open the can? You let AIR in! And there is no way to get it out. It kind of defeats the purpose! A better system is one that can remove all the air and keep it sealed out.

When using a grinder, only put the amount in you plan to grind and use immediately. Keeping the hopper full of beans, while convenient, exposes them to both light and air, which will affect the flavor.
NEVER store in refrigerator or freezer. Coffee is a deodorizer; it absorbs the odors it is exposed to.
So far, I’ve ordered Breakfast Blend, Brazil, Caramel and Java Gold and Irish Cream. They are ALL fabulous. I find adding flavors with the regular beans are a nice mix. Breakfast Blend and Irish Cream is DELICIOUS, and that’s WITHOUT even adding the Baileys ☘️ Thanks for such fantastic customer service and prompt delivery!
ALSO-loving the thermal travel French Press, it’s the BEST!
Courtnay! Great idea mixing the beans, you are your own Barista!!! Wonderful to hear how much you are loving on the Steel Toe 20 oz Press! It warms my heart to know we can bring you such happiness via great hardware gadgets too! The Bru-Stop technology is incredible, the way it stops the brewing even though the grounds are still at the bottom of the press, magic! BTW – based on our market research, nobody else has a press design, be it for travel or counter top use, that does that. Those people over at Planetary Design are just SO darn smart, hence why we surround ourselves w/their greatness, hoping some rubs off!!! Thank you for your testimony, hope we can keep bringing a smile to your face!!!
Mike, thank you for adding Caramel beans to your shop. I am not a coffee drinker but I have been enjoying this blend. Please let me know when Butterscotch becomes available.
Butterscotch sounds real good! I’ll see what we can do!
My office had 2 oz. bags that were from “donut shop” or something like that, the coffee was bitter.
Mike made up some 2 ounce bags of Kona for the office they absolutely enjoyed the fresh rich taste of Kona. We now have switched and use fresh coffee in the 2 ounce bags in our Company’s drip coffee maker.
While I personally grind my own coffee, this is the next best thing for the office for those who want it fresh and easy in the 2 ounce bags
What a great testimonial on drinking great coffee at work! Thanks Dave!
