Bad smell when opening frozen coffee bag - Page 3

Discuss flavors, brew temperatures, blending, and cupping notes.

I kept logs for months on this. Coming to firm conclusions on the type of thing has never been as easy as I would have imagined pre-espresso-rabbit-hole.

For example, whilst I recorded roast batch numbers, roast depth and more, I did not record things like temperature, humidity and more.

For what it's worth though, after more than 100 pours the note that I made at the bottom of the last log sheet reads "Add 1 click to Fresh grind size for Frozen" i.e. grind a little coarser. So it was only a small difference. For example if I had a successful pour with fresh beans at say 5.5 on the EG-1 and I then ground frozen beans (from the same roast batch) then I would grind at 5.6 for frozen to give the same yield.
Some people drink coffee to wake up, I wake up to drink coffee.

No. Once the bag is open I squeeze excess air out the top.

So is this: take bag out of freezer,
open bag and use little scoop to scoop out 2 or so (to correct weight),
squeeze air out of bag, put back in zip-lock and put back in freezer?

ie no concern about it picking up moisture from air?
THANKS!!! This is very helpful and timely for me!

This is my first time doing the freezing--so hopefully someone else can answer your question. I just want to take the entire 12oz. sealed bag out of the freezer & not refreeze cuz I will use the entire bag once I unfreeze it within 7-9 days.

I don't use a scoop, I just pour and also use my fingers. But otherwise, yes.

Moisture is a concern. So I tested it, measuring moisture content of beans treated this way. And I found that it didn't accumulate like I expected it to. Plus, lots of other people do the same as me without problems.

John, one more question - I often get beans that are 2days after roast. I used to think that they needed to outgass a few more days before freezing, Do you have any thoughts about that?
THANKS!!!!!!
