We store our coffee in the fridge, in an airtight container.  Used to store it in the freezer, but found the fridge worked better.

We also store it ... accessible!  Smile

Since I was told storing it in the fridge was a bad idea; I've moved our coffee to under the toilet tank. If that is bad, I'll move them to the cat pan.  24 MEOW!!! Now that a good brew!

I use an old blue-green fruit jar with a rubber seal. It looks great and it's air tight.

I vacuum pack coffee in mason jars and freeze.  When I pull one out, I keep the beans in the jar until used up.  I make espresso only and have moved from single dosing to hopper dosing, so most of the time the beans live in the hopper as opposed to the jar now.

^^ Great scoop!

Coffee stored in a Bell jar is fine. Better , however, is a Bell Jar with a one way valve.Simply punch a small hole in the lid and insert a plastic one way valve in the hole. The valve will allow out gassing (CO 2) to escape from the beans while denying access to O2 from staling the beans. The one way valve can be salvaged from an old coffee bag or purchase for a few cents.

Excellent suggestions in this thread on storage of our coffee..... I decided to change my blue-green fruit jar for an antique Wan-eta Cocoa brown glass jar. That should help keep more light out...... thanks folks.

How do I store my coffee? 

What I have is Maxwell House .

I just recently read that coffee needn't be kept in the Fridge, so I keep it on top of the Fridge. 

And I noticed too late that this is about coffee beans.

Vacuum sealing containers are excellent for freshness. With a release button they are easy to get into but about 15 seconds to vacuum seal.
