I have heard, donít you love it when someone says that w/o references, that if you grind coffee beans they need to be fresh or you might as well just use already ground coffee. Maybe those that grind their own can shed some light on this.
I will say that when I ground beans for my Aeropress, I could absolutely taste the difference between freshly ground beans and those ground 2-3 days before. It makes sense when you consider how fragile som of the aeromatic oils are. Try it yourself and see if your results are the same.

I see folks at stores like Costco buy the beans and grind them on the way out (Costco has a coffee bean grinder after you checkout). I guess I donít see the point in grinding the beans when you buy them and taking them home and putting the coffee in the cabinet.

We grind every morning and keep the beans in an airtight container as well. As far as taste, I used to require Splenda in my coffee and stopped using it when we switched.

We like our coffee strong and black. I like mine stronger than my wife does. Most mornings I wake before she does so I make two cups. She is usually not far behind me but if not iíll Drink both cups and make her a fresh one when she appears. Many mornings we enjoy our first cup in bed. After all, my favorite breakfast is a roll with honey.

My later brother in law introduced us to Community Coffee.  Very nice.  DH still drinks Butternut which is now owned by Folger's but the they agreed to roast as usual.  Alas I mix all and any just get me that first cup and then I am able to function. Just finished---fun topic!!!!!!

Before we got the Keurig, we used to drink 8 o'clock French Roast whole bean.  We'd grind enough for each pot as we made it.
Now that we're using K-Cups we use whatever store we're near's house brand(currently, in Bishop, CA that would be Von's), either French Roast or Italian Roast.  Minimum 4 cups a day, more on cool, stormy days.

Ernie, where did you get the air tight container?   Sounds like something that makes sense.

We store our whole beans until we grind daily. Diane bought a "coffee vault" about 6 years ago. It is still working great.

I got each of the components including the sealed container on Amazon. We buy the coffee in one lb sealed bags (Amazon) and put them in the container immediately on opening.
