Your coffee beans will stay fresh using our airtight coffee canister with de-gas valve. It seals tightly with a white flexible plastic insert surrounding the lid, forcing CO-2 from your fresh coffee to exit the one-way valve on the bottom.
You can’t beat fresh roasted coffee. But did you know that coffee isn’t at its peak the minute it comes out of the roaster?
Coffee beans build up a lot of carbon dioxide during the roasting process. This CO2 releases naturally through a process called degassing as the coffee rests. Coffee is actually at its peak a day or two after being roasted. Carbon dioxide is released even faster after grinding your beans, which may seem like a good thing at first. Ground coffee will not be fully extracted if there is too much CO2 present, leaving you with a dull or weak tasting cup.
So carbon dioxide is bad for coffee, right? Well, not exactly.
Once enough CO2 has left your coffee oxygen starts to get in. This is when coffee starts to get stale. Flavor components begin to fade. The rich crema and bloom from different brew methods begins to dissipate. A balance must be found to really hit the sweet spot between “too soon” and “too late” when brewing coffee.
This is where our Coffee Canister with De-Gas Valve comes into play. This container allows CO2 to escape without allowing oxygen to get in. Your coffee will stay fresher for longer. Enjoy your coffee at your own pace. Coffee is still always best when ground as needed rather than in advance.
IMPORTANT: This tin should NOT be washed with water! The de-gassing valve has a paper filament and won’t function if it gets wet. Easily clean off any residual coffee oils with a dry towel and reuse!
