The best way to store your coffee

Coffee can be affected by a lot of variants, so here’s our top tips to keep your coffee fresh.


The four elements that cause coffee to break down are – heat, light, air and moisture.

To keep your coffee fresh, you’ll need to store it in an airtight container or a special Merlo Coffee tin or bag.

Our tins and bags are equipped with a one-way valve to let the gas released by fresh coffee out, without letting moisture or other gases in.

If you live in a hot and/or humid region your beans are best kept in a fridge or frost-free freezer.

If stored correctly, whole beans will keep their freshness for about six weeks.

Once ground, this is reduced to two or three weeks – a perfect excuse to buy yourself a grinder and grind your beans as you need them!
