I also recently purchased the Barista Express, and bought the super crema. Came smelling very fresh, and the beans are delicious.
Have been using this to store it before placing in the grinder every morning.
I use something called the "Coffeevac". It was on sale for ~$7 on Amazon one day so I picked it up. Works pretty well, and I have noticed prolonged freshness when buying freshly roasted beans.
I rinse mine briefly. Maybe 3-5 seconds under the faucet. They are already 90% liquid. It' not like the 5 seconds they are under the water is going to do much. Plus fuck perlite. I hate the stuff. Get it off!
Also, I agree with the others in saying to get a dehydrator. They aren't that expensive. You've already invested months in getting those bad boys to sprout... may as well spend the $50-$60 to make sure the final product is good. To me it's like raising a calf from birth, massaging it daily, feeding it organic oats, letting it roam the pasture, and ensuring it has the best life possible. Then you hire a talented butcher to perfectly process the meat. Do you really want to fuck up when it comes time to cook and serve the steaks because it costs an extra $50?
I like to dry mine they throw em in a magic bullet and turn it into powder. I keep mine in one of those vacuum containers that make it impossible to smell anything outside of it.
Also, you'll be surprised how easy it is to pluck a finished mushroom off of the substrate. Apply a tiny bit of pressure and they just pop off usually. You might get a bit of substrate with it so just be careful. No need to cut into the cake.
Congrats on your first grow!! It's crazy exciting so I'm stoked for ya.
I keep my beans in these.
There's an air-release button that you have to press to close, so it pushes all the air out, and doesn't let light in either. It's what I use to store loose leaf tea, as well.
Thanks for the info, I ended up going with [link].
I was looking at it before and since you mentioned tightvac's were good for the money I went with it :)
Thanks for the advice.
I use these that hold 1lb (16oz) at a time. For me they store great for weeks even
Coffeevac 1 lb - The Ultimate Vacuum Sealed Coffee Container, Black Cap & Body [link]
Kilovac - 8 oz to 2.5 lbs Airtight Multi-Use Vacuum Seal Portable Storage Container for Dry Goods, Food, and Herbs - Clear Body/Cap [link]
Nothing special, they're made that way. There's a button that releases the air so that the lid can slide down and once you release the button the vacuum seal is created in order to get the lid off you simply push the button allows the air to escape. I've used both the gel and the Boveda packs in them and either work well.
I use a CoffeeVac. Keeps my coffee fresh and I love sticker bombing the hell out of mine.
I use this and it works great.
What is the best storage container between the Santa Cruz Shredder container, the tightvac, and Freshness Seal Aluminum containers?
I need to store up to a max of one pound of herb in the containers and need advice on which one to buy.
Alright, that seems like a good idea. Just got this one on amazon
Forget Mason jars.
These things are awesome
I ended up going with [link]
since it's close in price.
Thanks for the info :)
tupperware was actually my first thought, but then I wondered about something more coffee specific, looked up amazon and got confused as to what the right thing to do was :)
tupperware is like duct tape, it fixes everything. And if it doesn't, it just means you didn't use enough.
