Topic: vacuum packing coffee for shipping (7 msgs / 158 lines)
1) From: Patrick S. Harper
I wanted to roast some coffee and send it to a friend and I figured that
sealing it in a vacuum sealed bag might be the best way to do that.  I was
wondering if I should rest it before I seal it?  I normally rest it open air
overnight and then put it in a glass jar with a seal on the lid.  Thanks for
any advice.

Ok here is my thoughts on that.. If you seal right away it will puff up
with the CO2 Degassing... No harm in that... Or you can rest for a day
and minimize the puffing up... I have gotten coffee sent to me both ways
and I couldn't tell a noticable difference....

I also send roasted coffee beans to friends.  After roasting, I let  the 
beans rest for 2 days in a jar with the lid placed on top, not sealed.   After 2 
days, I vacuum seal the beans in vacuum sealer bags and send it to  friends.  
I've been doing this for several years, it's always been  successful.

While I've been sometimes called a FoodSaver shill, I don't FoodSaver vac
bag when shipping roasts. Instead use valve bags, heat seal then vac 'em and
usually ship the same day as roasted. This gets the recipient the beans in
usually 2 to 3 days from roast just coming rest ready and in a ziplock valve
bag to keep the beans in while consuming. The ones I'm using now are covered
in a roasted coffee bean motif with a coffee cup for the viewing window.
Google "Signature Bag" if interested. (case orders only) They have quite a
few different bags choices in various sizes with various plain colors,
different designs, Holidays themed, to even custom made with your logo/art.

Of course, they've also said they don't want to be in the bag business =
per
se, so if you want a lot, this seems like a legitimate post. At least =
IMHO.

It looks like you have to order a minimum of 2,000 bags from that Signature
Bag company.  Price per bag is good, but that is more bags than I need right
now.
