What I heard is that a week or less after you grind the coffee it's past its prime.

And it doesn't go "bad" the flavor just isn't as good.
Coffee is past its time 30 minutes after you grind it.

You should only grind coffee immediately before you use it.

It should be stored (whole bean) at room temperature for a week, 2 weeks MAX before it's lost most of its flavor and isn't worth drinking anymore.
