Ok, I know this is a recurring old topic, so forgive me for revisiting it.
But I'd like to know from several seasoned roasters here (Ed, miKe?), just
how can I store beans for a loooong time (as in 1-2 years)? I've discovered
one of my uber beans and I want to get a long-term supply of it. I'm
currently trying two of the methods below (vac. and freeze) on four 1# bags,
but they've only been stored 6 months.
Has anybody experimented with long term storage?
-deep freeze (I have a non defrosting type so it doesn't thaw)
-inert gas flush (there's a moderately easy way to do this thanks to y2k
-all or some of the above
-none of the above, because you just have to drink'm fast.
If one could arrest moisture levels, temp, and oxidation, shouldn't long
storage work well?
