Burr upgrade for Breville grinders?

FWIW, Breville is marketing these burrs as "Baratza European Precision Burrs." Etzinger has made Baratza's conical burrs for quite a few years now.

Any Reason Not To Freeze Coffee?

My impression about any warning suggesting NOT to Freeze Coffee (or refrigerate) is based on the assumption that the roasted coffee is stored in an open bag (i.e. not airtight).
