There is a local "upscale" grocery store that uses Stumptown in their coffee shop and also sells their beans. I liked the one version I bot a lot and will buy Stumptown beans again. I think I need to put them in an airtight container though. They seemes to dry out really fast, and are in a paper bag. Another brand I love and buy comes in the "plasticky" bag that seems to re-seal better and stay fresh longer.


I agree the paper bags don't lend themselves to long storage, Bill. I'm not certain how much it helps, but I put my 3 unopened bags into a larger plastic bag, squeezed out as much air as I could, and sealed it with a twist-tie.

I understand that it's not good to keep beans in the fridge, as the essential oils tend to ooze out at very low (or high) temperatures, so plastic bag in a dark cupboard is the best I can do. I much prefer the vacuum sealed plastic bags as well.
