A lot of people say keeping coffee beans is very difficult. This is because they are very sensitive to moisture and can lose their freshness quickly. So if you want to make sure that premium Arabica coffee stays in top shape for your next cup of espresso, we highly recommend you try using one of the following 4 coffee bean storage canisters:
Fellow Atmos Vacuum Canister
First on our list we have the Fellow Atmos Vacuum Canister. It is the best overall coffee bean storage container for several reasons.
One of the things people immediately notice when looking at this container is its very cool and sleek design. This means that it will look amazing in your kitchen. It also has vacuum sealing technology which ensures that all air is pumped out and your coffee beans won’t be exposed to excess oxygen.
This container, which is available in matte white and black, is also able to insulate your beans from UV light rays. This means coffee beans would break down less and will overall be fresher. With a price tag of less than SGD 50, this canister is certainly the best coffee bean storage on the market.
Planetary Design Airscape Kilo Coffee Canister
Do you drink coffee often and like to keep a lot of coffee beans at once? Then this is the container for you!
The Planetary Design Airscape Kilo Coffee Canister is simply the best large coffee bean canister you can buy. Not only is its storage capacity impressive, but it also has padded bottoms to make sure your container won’t slide off the counter.
This innovatively designed coffee container also has a mesh hole that allows air to escape and can be sealed to make sure the beans inside are kept fresh. It is also reasonably priced, at just SGD 56!
Friis Stainless Steel Coffee Vault Canister
Next on our list we have the Friis Stainless Steel Coffee Vault Canister. This is the best option to buy if you want to save a few dollars on your coffee canister, since it is priced at only SGD 34.
Despite being a “budget – option”, the Friis Stainless Steel Coffee Vault Canister is still a very useful container to maintain coffee bean quality. It has a simple lid open – close mechanism, and it also has a valve which allows you to release carbon dioxide within the canister.
However, there are a couple of downsides to this container. Firstly, it is not vacuum – sealing, which means your beans won’t be fully untouched by air. Its valve which forces carbon dioxide out needs to also be replaced every 4 months, and this can be quite a chore.
Regardless of that, this canister is still a very solid product to buy and its simple and robust look makes it suitable to be placed in any kitchen.
Coffee Gator Stainless Steel Canister
Even though most baristas and coffee aficionados recommend you store your coffee in the form of whole beans and grind only when needed, some people may just not have the time to grind beans every single time they want a cup of joe.
This is where Coffee Gator Stainless Steel Canister comes in.
It can not only store whole coffee beans, but can also store ground coffee just as well. This is a feature that even many premium coffee canisters lack, since the ground coffee powder can clog the vacuum sealing mechanism.
The Coffee Gator Stainless Steel Canister’s lid can be opened and closed quite easily, and it has a small CO2 valve to release the gas. However, the container often gets dirty quickly when used to store ground coffee. This can be a problem since it is not dishwasher friendly. It also has no vacuum sealer, which means some air will still seep into the canister.
