I've always wondered how you keep that much coffee fresh long enough to use it.

Those are beans they stay fresh much longer than ground coffee, easily kept for a month after opened. I drink around 3 espressos a day and find that I go through about 1.5kg of coffee per month. Of course when friends and family come over the count of espressos goes up.

To reply to someone else about the pricier lavazza beans.. It really comes down to personal preference. Personally I like the best the crema e aroma one followed by the black label. So price isn't always a guiding factor, however often times its indicative of the quality of the beans. In any case Lavazza is a well established brand and a pretty safe bet for decent coffee.

There's average espresso... Then there's Lavazza. No comparison to normal coffee. The Italians have nailed it with these coffee beans.

Also depends on the machine you're making it in as well... Etc.

Italian center in Edmonton carries loads of Italian brands and very good whole beans. Price varies a fair bit.

One has to ask how old they are if coming from amazon as a third party. I found coffee tasted best 1day after roasting with a oil slick on top but ymmv

The difference between wanting and needing is how you justify it.

Terrible advice...

This is one of the worst things you can do for coffee beans. The moisture in the freezer is not good for keeping your beans fresh.

Well, I did not say keep the bag open in the freezer.
Any serious coffee brand will state in the package to keep it in the freezer after opened.

I think you can easily find 1kg whole beans from Costco for around $16 - $18, no?

I like very strong coffee (drink it black). Would it be a terrible idea to buy this and use it in a french press?

Where would one buy more fresh coffee beans? Recently I've been going to bulk barn cause I can smell the individual flavour but I question how fresh is their beans. Are there other larger establishments where I can do the same?

There's quite a few places in Mississauga, Oakville, Toronto (as these are the locations I've looked around in). I've been to Cloud9 Coffee Roaster in Oakville and after trying out their coffee, it was an eye opener for me. Very smooth coffee and you can really taste the different notes in the coffee unlike when I buy the packaged ones.

From your signature, says you're in Kitchener. Here's what I found - https://www.google.ca/search?q=coffee+r ... GfXovclZgI

Before, with prepackaged beans, I have to set my ground settings to almost fine and fill the portafilter to the rim and I sometimes still can't get good pressure. With freshly roasted coffee, I have to dial back my grind setting and with just the right amount of coffee grinds, I immediately get excellent pressure and a very nice thick crema.
