Frequently Asked Questions


How long will my coffee stay fresh?

Coffee should last two weeks if properly stored. We recommend storing coffee in an airtight container, in a cool dark place. Keep in mind air, moisture, heat, and light may compromise freshness of coffee.

Can I store coffee in the refrigerator or freezer?

Short answer: no. Coffee must be stored in an airtight container within a cool dark place such as a pantry. If coffee is stored in a refrigerator or freezer, the temperature change can compromise the integrity of the coffee. Also, coffee can absorb food flavors and odors in a freezer or refrigerator which will also affect the taste of the coffee.

How long will my tea stay fresh?

The tea should last 12 months if properly stored.

How should I store my tea?

We suggest storing tea in a sealed airtight container which blocks all light. Glass jars are not the best option for storing teas because sunlight can damage the leaves. Like coffee, store tea in a dark cool place as exposure to heat will subtly change the flavor of the tea.
