Next up, know the very basic tip-off about roast – bear in mind, the darker it is, the milder; the lighter it is, the stronger.

Our canisters which come in seven vibrant hues are equipped with lids designed with AirFresh Valve Technology guaranteeing to completely lock out air and in turn, keep the fresh flavors and aroma of beans and grounds in.
Another helpful pointer would be to buy only the right, easily consumable amount of beans and grounds and replenishing as needed instead of hoarding huge quantities. Buying smaller bags will make for a good deal to keep the contents fresh. You can also divide your supplies into different smaller containers. This is a good and healthy practice, too.
