Topic: VacPack and Freeze -Re: Organic Yirg (2 msgs / 61 lines)
1) From: Tom & Maria - Sweet Maria's Coffee
After traveling for a week with George Howell (Terroir coffee, who 
vacuum packs and then freezes lots to save from year to year) the 
logic of his method seems to have proven itself. And for samples he 
is simply using the Foodsaver from Costco and stock bags like it 
comes with - nothing special. for his larger lots he might be 
gas-flushing. He is freezing samples in a chest freezer - not any 
special Sub-zero commercial freezer or anything. I started some tests 
of this method for samples, but it will take a while to know the 
results.
We have tried to hold coffees sometimes but (sadly) we sometimes get 
stuck with unclaimed lots. And it kills me to see really nice coffee 
sit there and age. Of course, if people paid, they would have great 
incentive not to abandon the coffee with us!
But this vac-pack and freeze ala Mike McGuinness is one way to 
address "vintages". Of course, it might lead one to simply have MORE 
coffee in their stash!

Indeed FoodSaver vacuum sealing has many uses, even vacuum sealing and
