What is coffee? A coffee is 98% water and 2% coffee beans. If the water does not taste good or is from the tap, it would not taste good in the coffee as well. Another thing is coffee beans which provides the main flavor to the coffee.

It is better if you buy coffee beans from the market or from online every two weeks, instead of buying them in bulk and storing for long periods, because the flavor of the beans degrades pretty fast.

If you cannot purchase small supplies of coffee, then divide the large amount of beans into two or three week proportions and freeze them in airtight containers right after you purchase them.The right and most effective way to increase freshness is reducing exposure to moisture, light and air.

Once the coffee beans have been taken out from the refrigerator, keep them in a sealed container at room temperatures as damaging condensation occurs whenever the dark-roast beans are removed from the refrigerator or freezer.
