Topic: Keeping coffee beans fresh (5 msgs / 79 lines)
1) From: Tomenid
All this talk about keeping beans from contact with air made me wonder if  
you couldn't just put the beans in an old wine bottle and then use the vacuum  
pump and plug that you use to keep opened bottles of wine from going bad? I'll  
try it since keeping coffee and wine fresh are too of my goals in life.

Tom,
Any vacuum is better than no vacuum.

It's not just oxygen that makes beans change or lose flavor.

Ed,
The only point I was trying to make was a vacuum was a step in the right
direction for a home roaster with a limited budget.
If you have any thoughts on flavor loss prevention here please fire away.
