Our coffee is best used within 3 months after its roast date.

We recommend to keep it in a cool, dry place, avoiding heat or direct sunlight. Ensure to always keep it sealed in its bag, or in an airtight container.

Try to avoid chilling or freezing your coffee as this can take away the fresh flavour faster. We only recommend freezing under special circumstances – for long term, uninterrupted periods.
