I know that you know that grinding coffee beans just prior to brewing coffee with them is best… but I also know that even YOU don’t want to do that every single day – every single time you make coffee.
We also know that there are a ton of coffee storage containers to choose from from a wide variety of price points so we felt it was necessary to build this list of our favorite airtight coffee containers to make things easier on you, the consumer.
To jump straight to the point let me say this:
The Coffee Gator Stainless Steel Container is the best airtight coffee canister in our opinion because it actually keeps your coffee fresh for the longest amount of time – even when the container is only half full. It is priced very low for the value it offers and it’s the container I use in my own kitchen!
That coffee container, however, is not your only choice. There are other options which are really great too. Scroll down just a tad and lets look at our top choices for airtight coffee storage.
The Best Airtight Coffee Storage Containers for the Home
This list below is presented to you in order of our preference, 1st to 5th. Please read our short product reviews and then click through for pricing and availability information.
1. The Coffee Gator Stainless Steel Container – Keeps your coffee fresh even when half full!
Coffee Gator Stainless Steel Container – Canister with co2 Valve, Scoop and eBookBy far and away this is our favorite coffee storage bin just as it is for so many other happy customers.
This is an airtight canister that will keep your coffee beans fresher longer than any other because of it’s CO2 release valve that lets CO2 out but doesn’t let oxygen in.
We love this bin because it comes with accessories and lots of literature and because the build quality is so high. Basically if you buy this unit it will last for a long time!
There are thousands of people who agree with this and the price is excellent. This is the best coffee container on the market!
2. Coffeevac 1 lb – The Ultimate Vacuum Sealed Coffee Container
Coffeevac 1 lb – The Ultimate Vacuum Sealed Coffee ContainerThis model is our second favorite vacuum sealed coffee canister because it’s just as durable as the Coffee gator mentioned above.
You’ll love it if you want a streamlined look in your kitchen (there isn’t a latch on the side) or if you want to choose your favorite colors – there are a lot of colors to choose from.
The price of this is lower than the Coffee Gator but the accessories aren’t included. Even still this is an excellent value and will keep your coffee fresh by letting carbon dioxide escape while not letting O2 enter.
3. Friis 16-Ounce Coffee Vault
Friis 16-Ounce Coffee VaultThis is another well priced coffee storage container that will vent gasses out but not let gasses in – this is exactly what we want to keep coffee from going bad.
As far as price is concerned the Friis coffee vault is fairly low in price (which is why we like it). It even comes with a scooper too!
We are also confident that this can will be durable enough to last you a long time due to it’s stainless steel construction.
4. Airscape Coffee and Food Storage Canister, 64 oz with Patented Airtight Lid
Airscape Coffee and Food Storage Canister, 64 oz with Patented Airtight LidThe Airscape canister is a great design for people who don’t want rickety latches. The screw-top lid creates the airtight seal you need to keep your coffee tasting it’s best.
Another benefit to this model is size, you have the option to buy this in large 32 oz or 64 oz sizes!
If you go through a lot of coffee then you will love this larger coffee vault!
5. OXO Good Grips Airtight Coffee POP Container
OXO Good Grips Airtight Coffee POP ContainerMost countertop coffee canisters are made of solid stainless construction. This is meant to keep out the light which has a negative effect on the coffee beans.
You’ll love this airtight coffee bin from Oxo because you can see how much coffee you have left at a glance while the bin prevents the harmful UV light from getting in to do it’s damage.
Not only is the Oxo coffee container going to keep your coffee fresh but it’s easy to pour out of, clean, and stackable… it’s priced very well too!
