Coffee Gator’s stainless steel coffee maker features zero-BPA canisters that have innovative valves which release CO2 but lock out oxygen. This ensures that your coffee stays fresh, unlike airtight containers which ruin the taste of coffee by trapping in oxygen.
Moreover, this coffee canister features a steel clasp seal lid to ensure your coffee remains fresh for months on end. It comes in a standard size with a 30 oz/900 ml capacity for ground coffee. If you’re looking to store whole coffee beans, the canister has a capacity of 315g/11oz.
More product specifications include an 11 cm/4.3 inch height. Overall, this is a good storage capacity for personal and family use.
It allows you to brew fresh coffee in your coffee maker without having to grind coffee beans each time (if you’re storing ground coffee). Not only will this save you time if you’re getting late for work in the morning, but it also allows for a richer taste as your coffee beans are more fresh.
The biggest product highlight of the stainless steel coffee canister is its ability to keep coffee fresh for an extended period of time, something not all canisters or regular jars can do, thus making it a crucial investment for the real coffee lovers out there.
However, in case you are not pleased with the product, the company has a 30-day money back guarantee with a no questions asked policy.
It also comes with a one year warranty, despite its durable build. Reviews show that the canister has a great french press and its filter does not need to be changed. On the off chance that your filter does deteriorate, the company will offer a replacement (within 1 year).
It also comes with a cup scoop that holds 2 tablespoons worth of coffee at a time, which is perfect for brewing coffee for 1-2 persons (depending upon how strong you like it). The product is currently priced at $25.99.
Even the best coffee can taste average or even bad if it isn't stored properly and consumed later on. Coffee beans sitting around tend to lose their flavour, similar to a fruit that goes bad.
They need extra care to ensure that when brewed, they make rich, flavourful coffee. If you don’t store your coffee, it will stay fresh for up to 3 days. If roasted, it will last about 3-4 weeks.
However, to ensure that it retains its flavour completely, it is best to use a canister. Choose a canister that releases carbon dioxide and traps oxygen out of the container. This is because oxygen contains moisture which eventually gives that soggy flavour to your coffee.
Moreover, buy a canister that is not transparent so that it does not absorb sunlight. Place it in a cool, dry place where it is least susceptible to moisture and other environmental factors.
The biggest upside to storing coffee in a canister is that coffee in any form will stay fresh. Moreover, if it is already grinded, then it allows you to brew fresh coffee without having to go through the process of grinding it each time.
Another advantage of canisters is that they protect coffee from losing its flavour and nutritional value. Old coffee that has not been stored properly will give off a stale flavour and lose its aroma. Plus, storing it in a canister helps to get more benefits out of its nutritional value.
However, on the off side, owning a canister can be expensive for some people. It takes up space and requires maintenance, such as filter changes.
Plus, many coffee lovers and experts believe that the best coffee is freshly grounded coffee, no matter how well a canister is built to retain the flavour and aroma of the coffee. Thus, this entirely eliminates the need for a canister.
First of all, if you haven't bought a canister yet, it is best to buy a smaller one. This is because on the off chance that your coffee does go bad, you will only be losing a small batch. Plus, smaller batches finish quickly so you can purchase fresh coffee frequently rather than stretching out the limit of how long the canister can keep it fresh (which ranges from 1-5 months).
If you already own a large sized canister, then try to put less coffee in it or store whole beans. Whole beans stay fresh a lot longer so it's safer to store more of them. Try roasting them so that their life increases even more.
However, it is best to not leave any extra space or air in the canister as that means more moisture and oxygen when it opens. Thus, try to opt for a smaller size.
If you don't have a canister at home, there are still a number of measures that you can take to ensure that your coffee does not go bad.
First and foremost, keep it away from light. This goes for both artificial and sunlight. Light is a very dangerous factor that will disrupt everything in your coffee. First, it will decolourise it. Secondly, it will strip it of its nutrients - including vitamins, fats and proteins.
Not only does this spoil the flavour of the coffee but it makes it less healthy too, thus eliminating the true benefits that it has to offer.
If you are not storing your coffee in a canister, it is best to keep whole beans rather than grind beans. This is because grind beans are exposed to a larger surface area, thus they are more susceptible to turning stale and losing their taste.
Coffee experts like Scott Martin who have tested quality coffee and are part of various important groups say that coffee canisters need to be stored on pantry shelves.
The reason behind this is that they remain safe from excessive light, heat, moisture and any other factors that could potentially reduce the freshness of the coffee inside them.
Some experts also believe that placing your coffee container in a chiller or freezer is also a good way to store coffee. However, this is more of a temporary solution as coffee will remain fresh in a freezer only upto a week. Plus, this is best used as an alternate solution in case you don’t own a canister.
If you don't have a pantry at home, simply place your coffee canister in a cupboard in the kitchen or anywhere where there is low lighting and less moisture. Make sure it is easily accessible as well.
