  1. I buy my beans monthly and grind them freshly every morning, and put the ground coffee in an airtight container to top my coffee put up during the day.

  2. We keep ground coffee in its original bag as it came from the store. Then we close it up tightly (I use a rubber band), put it into a ziploc freezer bag, and store it in the freezer. Judging purely by smell upon opening, it stays fresh until used up. We use it straight from the freezer. The process of taking the bag out of the ziploc, weighing out the coffee in its filter, and then pouring water into the coffee maker takes long enough so the coffee is pretty much room temperature.

  3. By keeping it in as airtight a container as possible. Coffee, however, doesn’t have time to go stale in my home. I’ll make another mugful presently. The all-plastic Folger’s ™ cans make great containers for the foil pack coffees.

  4. keep your coffee airtight and cool. Your coffees’ greatest enemies are air, moisture, heat, and light. To preserve your coffee and it’s flavor as long as possible, store them in an opaque, air-tight container at room temperature.

  5. I could grind my coffee, but I don’t bother just for myself.
    I used to put it in a large jam jar. If there was any left in the bag, I rolled it up tight and held it shut with a rubber band, until there was some more room in the jar.
    Now I have started buying it in sealable cans with a plastic lid. The can is only open for a few seconds while I spoon some into my cafetière.
    It is used up quickly anyway.

  6. Use containers called “Tight Vac”. You can find them online. I do this when I am camping or going somewhere that does not have electricity or when I cannot take a grinder. Grinding your beans fresh every day is the goal when freshness is concerned. Ground coffee tastes acceptable for three days max then a “roundness and smoothness” takes over for the next week leaving out the bright notes that some of us really enjoy.

  7. You pretty much don’t – Grinding coffee increases its surface area and all the aromatics will be gone in no time flat. If you want fresh coffee, start from beans, then grind to order every time you make coffee. If for a particular batch of beans you can’t figure out the roasting date, avoid them. Try to get beans that were roasted less than a month ago (as home roaster, I find that beyond two weeks most beans have lost much of their vibrant flavour).

  8. You don’t
    coffee is best used freshly ground
    it starts to deteriorate immediately
    the best you can do is attempt to slow down the deterioration by keeping it in an air-tight container

  9. It is very hard to keep ground coffee fresh due to the fact that once it has been roasted it starts an oxidation process, on the other side, whole beans stay fresh for longer.
    Now if you can’t grind coffee at home and you buy some ground coffee or you get it ground at your local coffee shop the best way to delay this process is by keeping your coffee airtight and away from any source of strong light and if you could remove most of the air containing oxygen inside of the canister. There are some solutions like canisters with systems that pull air out of them.
