Brewing Coffee 3 - Freshness

Whole bean coffee has a shelf life of two or three weeks after roasting, although modern packaging technology can extend shelf life. The fresh, vibrant aroma of whole bean coffee is unmistakable, while old coffee beans lack aroma. Consume coffee within one week to 10 days after grinding because coffee begins losing its valued taste characteristics the moment it is ground.
