1. Airtight Containers: The Key to Freshness

Upon receiving our freshly roasted Fox Coffee beans, transfer them to airtight containers.

These specialised containers are essential in protecting the beans from oxygen, the main culprit behind flavour degradation.



2. Shun Light and Heat

Light and heat are not friends to coffee beans.

Keep your Fox Coffee containers in a cool, dark place, steering clear of direct sunlight and heat sources.

Remember, refrigeration isn't the best option due to moisture and temperature variations.


3. Moisture-Free Zone

Store your beans in dry, cool spots to avoid humidity, which can lead to mold and a loss of that rich Fox Coffee flavour you love.


4. Grind Just Before Brewing

Grind your Fox Coffee beans right before brewing to maintain the utmost freshness and flavour.

Whole beans last longer than pre-ground coffee, so keep them intact until brew time.



5. First In, First Out

Follow this rule for rotation: Use older beans before opening new ones. This practice ensures you always enjoy our coffee at its freshest.


6. Skip the Freezer

Freezing can compromise the integrity of the beans, leading to a loss of the distinctive Fox Coffee flavour. Freshly roasted beans are best enjoyed within a few weeks.

7. Portion Control for Freshness

Divide your beans into smaller batches to limit air exposure. If you're a slow coffee drinker, consider buying smaller quantities for consistent freshness.


8. Choose Opaque Containers

Transparent containers might look nice but aren't ideal. Light exposure degrades coffee quality, so opt for opaque storage solutions.


9. Freshness Window Wisdom

Fox Coffee beans hit their peak between 7 - 30 days post-roasting.


Enjoy them within this window for the best taste experience.

By following these tips, you'll ensure that your

Fox Coffee beans remain as fresh as the day they were roasted, delivering a superior coffee experience with every brew.
