Bonus Tip from Bulletproof Coffee Fans
If you ever want there is a large community of fellow biohacking fans over at the Bulletproof Forum. One of the best tips was this comment from Pizzabagel:
Keep 1-2lbs in the canister for daily use. Vacu-Seal and freeze the rest in the BPA-free bags around 1lb at a time. 1 day before running out of the beans in the canister, let one of your frozen bags thaw in a dark cabinet for a day (you don’t want to open the bag if the beans are still frozen) – then throw those beans in your canister and enjoy.
