Storage Tips

How To Get The Most From Your Coffee

Whilst we may go to extreme measures to source and roast and blend you the best coffee, ultimately the true quality depends on overall factor…freshness This is why at Crema we package all our coffee in specialty designed ‘one way valve’ bags, this allows any gas’s (carbon dioxide) released from freshly roasted coffee to escape and prevents any oxygen from getting in.

We feel the best way to store coffee is in a ‘one way valve’ bag in a cool, dry place, away from heat and light. However if you wish to use a container make sure you keep the smallest air space between the top of the coffee and the lid of the container as this will reduce exposure to oxygen.

We wouldn’t recommend storing coffee in the fridge or freezer, particularly ground coffee as it can absorb odors easily or can be damaged by condensation.

Ideally the best solution to keeping your coffee fresh is to purchase smaller amounts more often and only grind the beans as needed.
