Green Coffee Storage

People in the coffee trade used to say that raw coffee was eternal, and we used to agree. The revised estimate is that green coffee lasts about a year from processing (assuming a six-month rotation of stock). We are unlike most green coffee sellers in that we do not have old stock; we are careful to make sure the coffee you receive is as fresh as possible. If we sell out of the previous crop year (something we always want to do) and new crop has not come in, we will not have that coffee until the new season.

Green Coffee Storage at Home

The most important thing to consider in regards to green coffee storage is atmospheric stability. The ideal relative humidity (RH) is around 60% and the ideal relative temperature is around 75 degrees F. If where you live is more/less humid or hot you need to take some measures to protect your green coffee. Most of us do live in climate controlled buildings, so you are pretty set to keep your green in an airtight container in a cabinet; although, humidity is the big factor in the home.
