Two years ago Mike and I both stuffed some roasted coffee into vacuum bags and froze them. Last year I opened one of my three bags. It was great coffee, but the coffee began losing its flavor after two days in the air. I have just brewed a pot with the two year old freezer/vacuumed coffee. Its flavor is a little flat but still good. The tastes could be effected by the fact that I've been drinking freshly roasted CRLM the past couple of days (Its Tom & Maria's fault). I have concluded that coffee that is vacuum packed and frozen can endure for quite awhile. However it isn't going to become my practice because it does fall off pretty sharply.

<Snip> John, my officious, err .. official title here at the office is "Senior Scientific Information Analyst", so I'll volunteer to take over some of your duties. Just ship that fresh roast up here. Might as well send the Hot Top, the Solis, the Cona and your bags-o-beans too! Dave Westerville, OH

<Snip> Well it was...right up until I got your note, John. Seriously...thanks for your concern. Gene Smith riding the wild learning curve in Houston
