Thanks PF. I just realized that rather than being concerned about how I store my ground coffee, I should be concerned about how THEY
store it (meaning the people I buy it from). This downtown shop has an average room temperature of about 90-95F. No doors, no windows, and completly open to the road traffic. The coffee beans sit all they long in clear plastic display cases that most likely will be exposed to sun light later in the day, who knows for how long. I only hope they sell it fast enough. So far the coffee makes excellent expresso.
P.S When you say "out of the light" do you mean sunlight?
