Storage and Packaging
Proper storage of your coffee will extend your shelf life and insure it does not get stale. Kona coffee from us comes in a resealable bag. This coffee packaging has a one way degassing valve. The valve allows the release of the natural C02 gases formed when roasting. It also keeps oxygen out.
As with most food products exposure to air and moisture will spoil it. If you expose your coffee to air, eventually it will lose it’s true flavor. Valved coffee bags changed Kona coffee packaging significantly. Materials such as metalized films, aluminum foil laminations, high barrier packaging materials and custom blended barrier films, with degassing valves ensure your Kona coffee has a longer shelf life and stays fresh! We only use resealable zipper lock closures with gas release valves.
How to seal bag for maximum shelf life.
After opening your Kona coffee, we recommend you reseal the zipper lock. First squeeze the air out. Then seal the zipper lock and finally press any remaining air out through the degassing valve. Your Kona coffee will stay fresh and remain the best cup of coffee in the world!
While many tourists flock to Kona to drink its coffee from its source, care must be taken to preserve its taste over time.
We typically roast and package within days or a week of shipping to insure freshness.
