I'll admit if you serve me a random cup off coffee I won't be able to tell you if its fresh or not (within reasonable limits. If you leave that ****er out for 4 years - yeah ill know). The big deal is when you have one roast that you consistently use eg. my usual crap is the Starbucks pike roast. I drink enough of it that I can tell when it's been sitting for a few weeks. I go through coffee frequently enough not to need a fancy airtight storage container. Usually we just keep it in the bag and grind what we need before serving.. However we had a bag that sat for two months while we went on vacation (and then came back with a couple lbs of local beans). We made one pot of the usual, and tossed the rest.
