my bad, should have been more specific. This is what i meant, when you  are 
done roasting your coffee beans how long will the freshly roasted beans  
produce carbon dioxide.  Also does any body store their fresh roasted beans  in a 
carbon dioxide release bag like the ones on sweet  maria's

I personally love the valve bags and use them almost exclusively.  And this
is after I went out and spent about $60 on fancy jars.

Oh, my- I thought you made reference to the factory that cooks up coffee
beans like you would Pinto beans, and more so, in fixing one of the musical
burritos: "...how long will it take the beans to release the CD?"
Right away, when you put the beans through the warehouse fire they call
roasting and serve the resulting Coffee Dreck. (CD)
I find that a C+ to FC+ roast will keep outgassing a Phoosh! of CO2 and
Aroma! for at least a week after I can it in a fruit jar, post roasting and
That would be a good measure of the "freshness" of purchased whole coffee
beans from the coffee emporium.

Like Ray, I put my roast into pint canning jars, with the two part lids. 
I wait 12 hours before screwing the lids on tight, and I get that lovely 
little pop every time I open the jar for about a week with the city+, 
full city roasts I tend to gravitate toward.
I use the valve bags when I give home roast to other folks. I recently 
sent some to a friend in the US, and she was simply amazed at how much 
more aroma she got from the beans than when she buys coffee, similarly 
bagged, from her local "gourmet" roaster.
It was her first experience with home roast. She will be ordering her 
roaster and beans from SM any day now.

"...every time I open the jar for about a week..." And then what? High time
for more roasting!
It's a sad clatter when there's only a few beans left in the jar. Of course,
it was that desperation that forced me to blend...

Sometimes my sense of humor beats my brain to the email...  I've sent
an apology offlist, and agree that Scjgb3 asked a very appropriate
At the same time, on Amazon , I did a music search for "The Beans" and
found 84 Results.  YMMV.
