Just put them in the freezer, then they will come out of it as fresh as they went in.

You have to stop coffee oxidation to keep coffee fresh.
Divide it into the small batches ,vacuum seal it and freeze it.
If Don't have a vacuum sealer, just use original coffee bags , just squeeze as much air from it as possible.
Airtight container- almost waste of time , plenty of air in it .

Have a cloudpicker voucher. Any recommendations for 1 or 2 bags that would be good via aeropress. Going to get some Sam for espresso and moka pot.

Some roasters in the UK at least are now saying that some of theirs are recommended to not be used for at least 4 weeks after roasting. It might be bean/variety dependent though and how it was roasted.

Freezing is always something i thought was to be avoided too. Dries them out and causes them to develop tiny cracks.

What is the measured moisture content of freshly roasted coffee beans?

These are after several weeks in the freezer. What is the deleterious significance of small cracks when the beans have a veritable Marianas Trench running down them and they are destined to be ground to dust?

It was something I just carried with me for some reason based on a long read ago thing.

But having read up on James Hoffman's explainer, it's when not stored airtight, that they then take on moisture everytime the freezer is opened or container they are in opened, that freezes, and ruins the coffee. Evreryday's a schoolday
