£10 for 1Kg of Italian coffee beans is a very good price.

They can be frozen in an airtight container if you don't actually run a cafe too.

Don't freeze them - it's a myth.

Worth considering if you got the storage space for it.

My coffee supplier says it damages it.

One thing to mention, if you're going to freeze them, make sure they're properly defrosted before you grind them.

Moist beans on your grinder will ruin it.

Agreed.....

Fair enough, but as far as I can see, it looks like opinion is divided and I can't see much actual evidence either way.

A friend of mine just took his hearing aid batteries out of the fridge. I said "Doesn't the cold drain the batteries?" but was told that the hearing aid guy recommended keeping the aids in the fridge. Sounds odd to me.

OK, I digress.

I wouldn't keep aids in my fridge oO

I think that is to keep the waxy deposits fresh?

Years ago it might have been true as it slows the chemical reaction internal leakage, but with todays technology its a much reduced phenomenon.

Better than keeping it in your pen-is...

Cold won't drain the cell, in fact it will slightly lengthen the lifetime. Not to the point that keeping it in the fridge is a must, but it is definitely preferable, all being equal, than leaving it at room temperature. At room temperature, a normal AgO2 cell will lose about 10% of its capacity in a year. It's much less at lower temperatures, so "might as well"

To clear things up: Yes, freezing coffee beans is bad. Buying stale beans from the supermarket is also bad. If you're buying these, you probably won't notice. FYI, it's pretty much pointless buying beans like this. Go to a decent coffee shop and buy freshly roasted, or use Pact Coffee (delivered to your door).

If only the rest of us could be as discerning and sophisticated as yourself...

Air tight container in the fridge in a black bag to stop any light when opening and closing the fridge. If kept in the freezer any moisture will turn to ice and damage the beans. Personally I keep them in my air conditioned comms room at work.

Cheaper in Costco. I think they are about £7/8?

They're coffee beans, not gremlins.

Yes, someone above pointed that out. But, its more commitment and hassle unless you actually want a bag a month.
