I keep mine tightly closed in the fridge, in their original container, then in a ziplock. We don't drink much coffee either, and our coffee stays nice and fresh. I have also kept them in the freezer, again in an airtight container. I ordered a specialty blend some years ago, and that was what the website recommended.
