Its funny to see this thread be resurrected at this particular time. I just bought some coffee from a local store and was told emphatically to never ever store my beans or coffee in the freezer or fridge. Something about the cold messing with the oil on the beans and ruining the flavour. I don't store my coffee in the fridge anymore. I have one cupboard dedicated to tea and coffee and my coffee is all stored in airtight, dark containers. Nothing that air or light can penetrate. Having said that...neither coffee nor tea tend to last long here.

I have heard the same thing about the freezer and coffee Alix. The cold causes condensation when the beans are taken out of the freezer and that negatively affects the coffee. I have never personally noticed a difference myself, but if you are someone who can taste the subtle differences then this is something you may want to pay attention to.

FAQ - About Our Coffee

In an air-tight container, I don't think the coffee will pick up any odors, but I'm not sure about condensation.

From that link you posted jet...

Should I keep my coffee in the refrigerator or freezer to keep it fresh?
Neither. Freezers and refrigerators are full of odors that your coffee will absorb - you could end up with chicken-flavored coffee! Refrigeration also causes condensation on the coffee that will cause the flavor to deteriorate rapidly.
NICE! You guys are so smart! Thanks for the link!
