And for the record - I am a coffee enthusiast. We have 5 different coffee makers at home that get used regularly (and 2 others that get used a few times a year) and we roast our own beans from time to time. Freshly roasted coffee is great - but I think that's entirely because of the great smell of roasting coffee that puts you in a coffee enjoying mood.
You, sir, are a savvy consumer, that can separate facts from myth.
Explaining how contact with oxigen can degrade coffee is easy. The myth part is that one can consistently tell which one is the degraded coffee in a blind taste off.
Give this man a cookie.
