Freezing beans crops up periodically on the Forum, either as a topic in its own right or as part of a discussion about storage. There's an interesting article on freezing just published on the Roast Magazine's Daily Coffee News, here....
Can anyone recommend a quality vacumn sealer? Perhaps one they own and have used. I'm in the process of sending one back to Amazon after reading excellent reviews it turns out to be shite so reviews are sometimes not what they seem.

So the question is do you guys freeze in 250g bags or how about freezing the 500g bags?
I've been thinking (which doesn't happen very often! ), how long do beans last??
If their best time is 10 days after roast how does everyone store them?, and how much quantity is best to order?
I tend to be the only person drinking coffee in our house, so even at 4 or 5 cups a day...
