Did you know that there is a proper storage method for each period to maintain the quality of the coffee beans themselves? Deterioration of coffee beans progresses due to conditions such as light (ultraviolet rays), heat, oxygen, and humidity, and the delicious aroma and flavor are lost. In particular, roasted coffee beans easily absorb moisture, so it is necessary to put them in a closed container so that they are not exposed to the outside air.
No matter how good the coffee extraction technology and cupping are, coffee beans that have not been properly preserved and deteriorated will not taste better than their quality. Therefore, those who are particular about coffee should have knowledge about how to store coffee beans.
