Fun fact for the day - did you know that many of the apples you see at the supermarket were picked well over a year ago? They seal them up in an oxygen free environment and they keep just fine for up to 2 years or so.
Once you open the bag air gets in. That will stale the beans.

I have a container that actually forces the air out for storage.

Typically once u open it u should use it within two weeks.

Again this is more for coffee snobs and maybe u don't care nor taste the difference.

I also don't add sugar or flavored creamers to coffee as that would defeat the purpose of a good roast of beans.

Also check the date when it's roasted.

The good shops will have roasts within a week or two of your purchase
