Another first world problem

Buying coffee as 'whole beans' should NEVER be an "accident" and the grinder should ALWAYS be out and ready to use.

 

Is it okay to grind, say half of a bag, and then store the unused for later or must one grind only what one will use for that day?

 

How long before the newly ground beans become old ground coffee?

 

Should it be kept in the refrigerator?

No, don't keep in fridge of freezer (unless you let it come back to room temp before you use). It freezes the oils in the bean and can mess with the flavor. Most of the flavor comes from the oils in the bean.

 

As for how much to grind...grind only for the amount you are about to make just before you use it.

 

Rule of 15s.

 

Roast coffee within 15 months of beans being picked from tree.

Use coffee within 15 days of being roasted.

Grind coffee within 15 minutes of brewing.
