I'm sorry, but I don't agree with this. Coffee SHOULD be kept in the fridge. Although I do agree with the air tight container :)

And you should never freeze coffee!!!! Just remember to treat coffee like you would fresh food and you will be ok :)

All the other advice was great though! :)

Or we can go to Hortons, and get some of the finest tasting coffee on offer anywhere!

And buy their product and bring it home....

All this talk about grinding your own coffee, what brand of coffee grinder do you recommend? do you really think it is worth it? Aren't you anxious to get the coffee as soon as possible?

ITK, I think I mentioned my old Braun grinder a while ago. I stick by that. It has never failed me, and it works quick too. Just scoop in what you need for the pot and hit the button til it is ground the way you like it. It is quick enough that I don't go into withdrawl immediately ;)

Jovin, where the heck have you been? Did your computer die?

Lifter, with my particular coffee addiction, I would have to own my own Hortons or it would be way TOO expensive for me!

percolater doing well...still not sure if I'm getting everyone pleased..but I keep changing the amount and some are pleased...so I don't use it everyday though.

Hey, do you have coffee grinds in the bottom of your cup though? I do...maybe I should have it ground chunkier like you.

I like to use Arabica beans and avoid the Robusta.
Using good water is a plus, but if you have to use the tap stuff, a water filter is nice.
I also like to treat myself to coffee from a French press. It is much tastier, and I only use the coffeemaker when I need a lot really fast.
