We think these little tins are great for quickly and conveniently dosing the perfect amount of coffee each time you brew. Just weigh your coffee, dose the desired amounts into a few tins and toss a tin's worth into your grinder whenever you want to brew. They will cut down on oxygen exposure, as you won't be opening the same bag or container on a daily basis. We hope these tins will be helpful for folks who go through the trouble of weighing their beans each time they make coffee.
We tested them against other storage containers and they did a great job of preserving flavor, especially when we left a little room in the tin for the coffee to degas. You will be able to comfortably fit about 55g of whole bean coffee into it. Brewing a carafe with an electric coffee maker? You can get up to about 58g in there if you don't mind it being over-filled a bit. There's no one-way valve but your coffee probably doesn't need one if you are storing it for a few days and aren't opening the lid until grind-time. The lid is clear so you'll have a great view of your coffee, but keep your filled tins out of the sunlight since prolonged light exposure is a flavor killer. Wash them with warm water and mild soap and they will stay clean for a long time.
