When storing coffee beans it’s important to use a coffee storage canister that eliminates each of the four causes of flavor loss in whole bean and ground coffee - CO2 gases, moisture, light and air. The key to rich, full-flavored coffee is limiting the effects of these external forces through proper storage. The Friis Coffee Vault is the recommended storage canister as it releases trapped carbon dioxide gases and blocks out moisture, light and air that destroy the flavor of coffee


How to store and keep your Coffee Beans Fresh: The Friis Coffee Vault


Standard canisters do a good job of preventing oxidation, but it also seals in the carbon dioxide gases that are constantly coming from roasted beans or grounds. When you trap CO2 in with your coffee, it breaks down the flavor you love. The Friis Coffee Vault not only prevents oxygen from getting in, but it lets the CO2 out. It is the only canister designed to take care of the four external factors that break down and destroy the original flavor coffee drinkers’ desire. Coffee shouldn’t be stored in the refrigerator or freezer because each time you take coffee out of the fridge, you create condensation in your coffee, which causes it to spoil and lose flavour much faster.


The Friis Freshness Valve is the key to the coffee vault it eliminates trapped CO2 gas. The valve is constructed with a unique filter that allows carbon dioxide gas to pass through without allowing oxygen or other gases back in. This one-way valve removes the trapped gas that breaks down and destroys coffee flavor over time.
