Keeping coffee fresh to preserve its taste has always been a challenge. The shelf life of roasted coffee is short: about a month for whole beans, only one or two weeks for ground coffee.
The Friis Coffee Vault™ coffee storage canister is an innovative solution to the coffee storage challenge.
If you store your coffee in the Friis Coffee Vault and keep it in a cool, dry place, the coffee’s shelf life will be prolonged and its flavor will be maintained. Say goodbye to coffee that goes stale soon after you’ve brought it home from the store.
The canister has an air-tight seal to lock out light, air, and moisture—three of the biggest enemies of coffee freshness.
Unique Freshness Valve™ locks in flavor
The Coffee Vault also features a unique, patented Freshness Valve™ that allows residual carbon dioxide gas from the coffee roasting process to escape. Trapped CO2 can degrade the coffee and break down its flavor and freshness. The unpleasant result is a stale, bitter cup of coffee.
The one-way Freshness Valve uses a replaceable filter that keeps outside oxygen from entering the canister while letting carbon dioxide pass through from the inside. Friis recommends that the Freshness Valve be replaced every two months. Each Coffee Vault comes with a 1-year or 6-month supply of valves, depending on the model.
Coffee storage canister comes in 2 sizes, plus a “travel” version
The Coffee Vault is available in two sizes, 16-ounce and 12-ounce:
- The 16-oz. Coffee Vault pictured above has a stainless steel base and a black BPA-free polymer lid. The canister is 7-1/2 inches tall and 5 inches deep, with a capacity of 64 fluid ounces. It holds up to one pound (16 oz.) of coffee beans. A coffee measuring spoon and instruction booklet are included, along with a one-year supply of replacement Freshness Valves. The 16-oz. Coffee Vault is also available in red or black.
- The 12-oz stainless steel Coffee Vault features the same construction as the 16-oz. model, in a smaller size. The 12-oz. version is 6 inches tall and 5 inches deep, with a 48 fluid oz. capacity, enough to store 10–12 oz. (3/4 lb.) of whole coffee beans or ground coffee. This model includes a 6-month supply of Freshness Valves as well as the coffee spoon and instruction booklet.
- The 16-oz.Coffee Vault “Traveler” is perfect for storing coffee when you’re on the go. Made of black BPA-free polymer and measuring 6.75 inches in height and 5 inches in diameter, the Traveler holds up to 16 ounces of whole bean or ground coffee. It includes a spoon, instructions, and a 6-month supply of extra Freshness Valves.
After you’ve used all the Freshness Valves included with your Coffee Vault, you can buy a Friis Freshness Valve Replacement Kit at a very reasonable price. The kit contains six valves, a one-year supply. The same Freshness Valves fit all Coffee Vault models.
Whether you are a “coffee snob” or just an everyday coffee drinker, you’ll love the way the Friis Coffee Vault coffee storage canister keeps your coffee flavorful and fresh. You’ll be able to enjoy rich, full-flavored coffee from the first to the last cup.
