If you have your own grinder (Like I plan to one day), or even if you use real coffee that is already ground and wonder what to do with it, where to store it etc…
- Grind only as much coffee as you need at a time — ground coffee deteriorates quickly.
- If you do have ground coffee left over, store it in an airtight container in a cool, dry and dark place.
- Don’t store it in the fridge or freeze it — that it’ll keep fresher there is “an old wives’ tale”, according to experts from our espresso machine test. Unless the container is absolutely airtight, the ground coffee will attract moisture that’ll make it go stale quicker in the fridge, and it’ll absorb odours from other food.
- Coffee needs to be at room temperature so it won’t cool the water as it flows through the grind.
- Don’t keep beans in the grinder, store them in an airtight container. Clean the bean container and ground coffee chamber regularly to remove any residual oils that can go rancid.
There you go
