Vac Sealing Roasted Coffee

This morning, while doing a bit of packing, I vacuum packed three ~44 gram ‘doses’ of beans for my trip. I’m going to approximate the 22 gram/ 10 oz ratio mentioned on the HR list. Sealing 22 grams in those ‘bags’ looked too much like waste. So, we’ll see how it goes. The knee mill, AP, and coffee are packed and ready for departure.

A joyous and blessed 4th o’ July to all! Rejoice in the blessings God has granted to our nation! And remember, in all, give thanks.

Solo Deo Gloria,
jason

    I have never had vacuum-packed coffee. Does it affect the taste? I know a lot of people grind their coffee now. I’ll have to try it. Thanks for the post.

    You can vacuum seal the roasted coffee to eliminate at least one of the enemies of roasted coffee: air. I only did it for two primary reasons: 1. Portability. 2. Doses. They packed nicely in the travel gear and were predosed to the proper mass for my setup.

  3. One important thing to remember with vacuum sealing – if done right after roasting – the bag being sealed should have a one-way valve. If it does not, and your coffee remains sealed for more than a few days, it will explode. Spoken from experience đŸ˜¦

    To David Miller – It is very true, vacuum sealing pulls out all oxygen and then only leaves the beans with a blanket of CO2 as they de-gas. The flavor is well preserved in this manner. And, we never recommend that anyone put beans in a refrigerator or freezer as it is detrimental to the oils (our opinion).
