I just received a 5 lb. bag of Redbird Espresso that was roasted two days ago (1/18 roast date). I obviously won't go through all of it before it goes stale, so I want to freeze a portion of it. I have read the article by Ken Fox and Jim Schulman about their test results ( /store-coff ... eezer.html
), but I wanted to ask a few additional questions.
1. It seems that freezing immediately, even if the coffee has not degassed, is likely the best option. Is that true?
2. Once I take the beans out of the freezer, should I give them another few days to degass or should I assume that will happen in my freezer?
3. Do people find any difference in the use of mason jars versus ziploc bags? I have some mason jars that I can use, so I figured I would start there.
