Matthew W: Oh yeah....it's got nothing in the plunger seal that could draw in ground coffee. You can also take the seal apart and clean it down too.

In my experience it extends the life of whole espresso beans by at least a week.

Pam H: Hi Lisa,

I don't see why this couldn't work for keeping ground coffee fresh, though I haven't used it for that. The only problem might be with some of the finely ground coffee getting flung out of the canister when you open it due to the vacuum pressure. if you pull the lid up carefully it shouldn't be an issue. I'm very happy with my Airscape. I have the smaller of the sizes, by the way.

j.s. p: We store ground coffee as well as whole beans in ours all the time and we found these containers to be excellent. Our ground coffee is fresh and aromatic. We like these containers so much that we went back and purchased additional pieces. They look great and do the job really well. Plus, we love the sound of the air compacting and releasing when we open or close the lids. Great item! Buy it! Nov 20, 2012

dean s: Frankly, I haven't done a study into this topic, but I have been using one of the smaller canisters to store ground coffee and I've been pleased with the results. In general, I tend to exclude as much air as possible from almost everything I store because this will delay the aging effect of oxidation. Short of using a vacuum sealer, this seems like the next best thing. Nov 20, 2012

Deborah I: We have not used the container for ground coffee, only roasted beans ( for which we find it works really well ). I can't see why it wouldn't be just as good at storing ground coffee. If I were to do that I would put the grounds into a ziplock baggie and then place that into the storage container for an extra aid to keep grounds fresh. Hope this helps. Nov 20, 2012

Janet M: Yes, it works well for ground coffee - the inside "lid" can be pressed down to compress the coffee and remove air, so it lasts longer. I use the smaller canister (not sure if it's 32 oz, but probably) for a half pound of ground coffee to take on trips and it keeps it fresher than anything else I've found. Nov 20, 2012

Ed R: They are great for whole beans. I use a tupperware pint container with a screw top for ground coffee. I think the grounds would imbed in the soft rubber seal and make it leak. The grounds might also plug the small air hole in the top. I hope this helps. Ed Nov 20, 2012

A shopper asked: how many days or weeks do the beans stay fresh in the airscape canister? Feb 11, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Lawrence L: That's a tough question. Beans, once roasted always degrade. They degrade more slowly in the Airscape than left out somewhere where they're exposed to air. I use two Airscapes for two different types of beans and I find that they do stay fresh, again, that being a relative term. Its reassuring to hear all of the air get pushed out when you close the Arscape though. Exposure to air isn't good and the Arscape does help minimize that. I remember before I bought my first one that there was a video about the Airscape on SGC comparing beans stored in an Airscape versus fresher beans. You might see if its still there.

Its a good product, but nothing completely keeps roasted beans fresh, just shows down the rate at which they degrade. Best I can say is that I go through a fair amount of beans and they seem to stay "fresh" for at least a couple of weeks.

Pamela G: I am the only person drinking coffee in my house, and I only drink one cup of coffee a day, so my coffee sits in the canister for maybe 3 or 4 weeks. But it's great - I am not sensitive to any degradation to the flavor of my coffee (and I'm one who grinds it fresh and does a pour over----so I'm fussy).
One thing I will say is that I wish I had purchased the larger size. Other reviewers said the same thing, but I didn't pay attention. A 12 oz. bag won't fit the small one.

Jeremy D: Longest I've gone is just over two weeks. I think it's best for use to minimize the degradation of coffee after that time. It still tasted a bit off after two weeks but it's rare that I go that long without fully using up a pound of coffee. Separately, I use a different canister to keep decaf beans in the freezer and the combination of those two seems to work great for extra long life. The regular beans I leave on the counter but those are gone within 7 - 10 days after purchase. Feb 13, 2014

Gusztav R: I've been using the larger canister for over a year now for storing beans, no complaints so far. I consume a canister of beans in about 2 weeks so that's all I can validate on but it definitely keeps the beans fresh for that period of time. Not sure how it works for a longer storage time, or for grinds, never tried it. Holds about 1 lb. It is a well made product, I would recommend it. Feb 12, 2014

marc b: I really like these canisters. So far, I've had coffee beans stored for 7 to 8 weeks, and they were fresh. There is still the smell of roasted coffee beans, although not quite as strong as right out of the bag. I do make sure to clean the canister out after each use, to remove any oil residue. I am satisfies with this purchase. Feb 12, 2014

Craig M: I have not tested this for more than a few weeks at a time. It seems as though the canisters are great in that time frame.

Jan F: We use 12 oz of beans for brewed coffee in a week or less. Provided they were fresh from the store (we don't roast our own), they stay wonderfully fresh. I store espresso beans in the smaller airscape. The crema is still great and the beans have been stored a few weeks. Feb 12, 2014

Stefan W asked: Does the Airscape canister allow freshly roasted coffee to off gas or do you have to let it sit for 8+ hours first before you seal it? Nov 15, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Ethan S: Stefan,

The Airscape isn't a true vacuum like several of the powered containers. Think of it more as when you squeeze out the air before sealing a ziptop bag. If the beans were to off gas inside a ziptop the gas would just "balloon" the bag. I'd imagine the same would hold for an Airscape, but perhaps a bit slower. I once contacted the manufacturer to inquire as to whether it's safe to fly with a sealed Airscape; they responded that there is a bit of "give" in their design to allow for such pressure changes. Off gassing would produce an increased pressure inside the container which would serve to push the inner seal up a bit; the increased interior pressure would likely slow down the off gassing.

I don't think it would harm the beans or the container, but if you want to be sure your fresh beans are off gassed to your liking it might be best to leave the plunger off for a while.

Mario A: I've only ever used coffee that is a day or two off roast so I can't be sure. But the seal pretty much creates a vacuum so I don't think anything goes in or out. However the seal is not locked until you flip down the handle. So it seems to me you could plunge down the rubber top thereby expelling the air inside. But then do not flip the handle, thereby leaving a little escape route for the CO2. No this might also allow some air in except there is a second lid that goes on the top of the canister that should keep most air out. Then after the 8 hours you would just flip the lid down and seal the vacuum. As I mentioned I have not actually tried this but having used the canister I am assuming this would work the way I described. By the way, I really like this canister out of all the ones I've tried. It seals just as good as the pumping types but is much handier. I threw all my other ones out and use these exclusively. Nov 21, 2012

CA M: The canister has a tight fitting internal lid that has two holes in it and a handle that flattens to close off the holes. With the handle raised to an upright position the holes are open. In this position you press the lid until it meets your coffee content, exhausting the air between the lid and the coffee. Once done, flatten the handle to close the holes. Although this process removes the bulk of the air, it is not a total vacuum, as air is still present between the coffee partials. The second canister lid is then place atop the canister. Once closed it is not so unlike a jar, as far as exhausting any further gases goes. Hope this helps. Nov 21, 2012

Dan D: Hi Stefan,

I haven't run any helpful tests, but it seems that by leaving the sealing-lever up the CO2 should be able to off-gas at will. The increased pCO2 in the cannister should also displace most O2. So I leave the cannister with the top lid off and the sealing-lever open for at least a day, depending on the beans. The post-roast flavors seem to develope the same as in the preAirscape days when I would just leave the whole thing open.

Good luck!

Colin G: Yes, no problem. The inner lid has a handle which also acts as a valve control; when the handle is up, it allows the warm beans to de-gas through two small holes; when the handle is folded down, it closes the holes. Nov 22, 2012

RALPH P: Sorry, as I'm no real help here. I own both sizes of this canister and they work great! But, never put one in the freezer. Theory in my head is . . . metal contracts when cold, and that's the outer container contracting into the seal which is not metal, so it should be fine. Heck, ask Seattle Coffee to test if for you.

Frederick S: ...the can itself is easy to wash with warm water and a mild kitchen soap. But of course it must be dried carefully...and left to air dry completely before further use.

...appreciating the ability of water to permeate even the smallest aperture in almost anything I've been reluctant to "wash" the black lid. Before each refill I take a damp sponge, well wrung out, and gently clean the black lid. I wipe the cover lid gently with a dry paper towel.

...I've found no evidence any component of this canister retains any type of residue or odor from each fill. If there i any I suspect the amounts are so small as to be undetectable, except for my cat who refuses to participate in my experiments! :-)

CA M: Dan, i just wash mine in standard soapy dishwater and rinse well. To clear the water from the black lid with the holes, I just push it into the dried canister. The air compression will force the water out of the holes in the lid. i repeat the process, drying any water that come out, until no more water appears. Then as an additional safety I allow the lid to sit out overnight. Hope that works for you, if you chose to try it. Aug 7, 2013

David S: The canister is stainless steel and doesn't absorb any oils or tastes from beans. The canister and lid are very easy to clean. I just use a soapy cloth to clean everything and rinse with water. I avoid submerging the lid in water due to the ventilation holes. Jul 24, 2013

A shopper asked: I wonder why this product is marketed as a "32" oz coffee bean container when in actuality it barely holds 8 oz of whole beans. Where does this "32" number come from? It is not real, it is misleading and, to me, it looks like false advertising. This is such a stark disconnect from the reality that I have to believe this question has come up before, which means I have missed something since I cannot believe the good folks at SCG would allow such a subterfuge to continue.

What did I miss?

Teri KStaff: I am sorry our inclusion of a description of 32 ounces on this Airscape feels misleading! 32 ounces is the liquid measurement on the smaller unit, and though we do note on the item description under Cons that this container holds less than that amount in beans, I can understand feeling as though it was not adequately displayed (We list- Cons: Small Storage - It only stores 1/2 pound of beans at a time). I will pass along your thoughts to the marketing team and we will address this for clarity on the website. Thanks for letting us know! May 26, 2014

Josh R asked: How heavy are the canisters?

I currently use the typical ceramic kitchen jar that I bought at a thrift store for a dollar. The only problem is that it weighs so much. When I bring it along with me to work or travel it feels like I have a brick in my bag. I am seeking out a container that is airtight, but also portable. If possible, it would be nice to know the weights for both the 32oz canister and the 64oz canister so I can compare/contrast. Thank you :)

I bought one of each size because I like to get a 1/2 pound of beans when I try something new. I bought the red ones. Ingeniously simple design that works.

Here's my gripe: I couldn't get that label off for anything. On one I didn't even try. The canister that I tried on has sticky glue all over the side that I can't get off. I mean I could but I feel I would damage the beautiful surface of the can.

I love the canister, but I am very disappointed in one respect. I ordered the 32 oz. size thinking that it would have more than enough space for one 12 oz. bag of beans. Well, it doesn't. After pouring in the new bag of coffee the lids would not close tightly. Even after brewing a couple of carafes of coffee it still doesn't close all the way. Had I known this I would have purchased the 64 oz. carafe.

I think this is a brilliant design. And it's definitely worth the money. It has paid for itself already, as I am throwing out less coffee. It's just me and I only make a couple of cups of coffee a day, so the grinds can get skunky if I don't take care of them. I actually wish they made a smaller canister.

I agree that this will not take a whole pound of coffee beans. The design assures that the full volume of the container is not usable for storage. I think it is a good container for 1 person however, I really would have preferred to purchased the 64 OZ container instead. Good container but a bit small.

As others had said this will not take a whole pound. The way the lids* (2) work on this, you dont get the full container to use. I think it is a good container but for 3 people its under kill by a lot. I would have rather purchased a larger 64 OZ instead. Good for what it is though, just a bit small.

Great product for home roaster

Review by

I roast at home, and this helps keep fresh beans fresh. It looks great, is easy to use, and won't spill. A few notes:

1) Capacity - I roast in batches of 3/4 lb green beans (340g), and once done this container is full. So don't expect to get a pound in there.

2) Value - It is a bit expensive, so it is for a bit of a diehard when it comes to freshness. It will hold only about 3/4 lb, and for most coffee nerds that doesn't last very long. So if you are debating it, consider if you will keep beans in there long enough (and if you buy them fresh enough) for something like this to be better than any old container. I use this one to bring to work for the occasional coffee. So the coffee sits long enough where it is worth it.

No regrets about the purchase, great product, highly recommend!

I ordered the black container and received the copper one free. I am pleased with the quality. Now I am able to alternate my coffee beans without losing freshness.

We've got four of these. Three of the larger size and one smaller. The smaller size is nice for leaving next to the grinder. Since we blend our coffee we use the larger sizes to keep the beans we blend. It's a great idea and it works well better than anything else we've found.

Great for Freshly Roasted Coffee

I roast my own coffee, but before getting these canisters "freshness" would be lost after 1-2 weeks, and I roast every 2-3 weeks.

One of the beans I currently have has a unique berry flavor that it has been losing just 3-4 days after roasting. It's been 5 days into my first batch with these canisters and the flavor is holding well. I'll revisit this review and update later.

While canisters seem overpriced, it is worth it to me to extend the unique flavors of freshly roasted coffee that are completely lost to most who buy from supermarkets, where the coffee's been roasted weeks or months earlier.

Unless you roast your own or buy freshly roasted, I really don't see this being a worthwhile purchase.

The container is great. However, I figured 32oz would be more than enough to hold one pound of coffee. 16oz - 1lb, right? Wrong. You will need the larger model to fit a full pound bag of coffee in this container.

Useful container for fresh roasts

I ordered the smaller size since my coffee roasts are usually less than 250g. The seal and vent construction are great. The top also seals well.

The only negative, other than the too-sticky label, is that even though Planetary Design is in Montana, the Airscape is manufactured in China. I might not have ordered it knowing that. I wish SCG would indicate such things on their website.

But it works as advertised.

Its getting three stars from me, purely based on the packaging of this product. I ordered three of these, over the past six months. The container is great for keeping the coffee fresh. However the last one out of the three had a sticker which permanently attached itself to the side of the canister. Gently lifting it up and pealing it off as I did with the first two, resulted in half of the sticker ripping and leaving itself on the side. The glue must have been either heated by the sun or something else during either shipping the container to me, or in a batch to the store, and changed its properties from easy peal off, like the first two containers I received, to the crazy glue dedication. At this point, the container is 100% usable, but 100% aesthetically ruined, with a big blotch of scratched and scraped paint, which was the result of me trying to remove the glue with a "non-abrasive" washing sponge. And as an insult to the injury, some of the glue still haven't come off, and it is still a bit tacky.

Useful Item

I have this in the larger size but thought the smaller (32 ounce) size would also be useful. Good to keep things fresh, not just coffee, although I realize this is a coffee site. I use the ones I have to keep coffee beans in. One for regular and one for dark roast. I believe that, by extracting air, they really do keep my coffee beans fresher. They still don't last forever sitting around, but this container keeps them fresher longer.

The container is a bit thin-walled, but if you don't drop it or bang it around you shouldn't have a problem. As i said, I already have two of these in the larger size and just bought two in this size. I will definitely find uses for them.

Great product at a reasonable price. This will keep your freshly roasted beans tasting fresh for two weeks--which is about the longest lifespan you can reasonably expect anyway. After two weeks, the beans still tasted very good, but I could definitely tell there was a difference when making a pour over (the gases and bubbles I expect were lacking).

I think the 32oz size is perfect for me since I like to buy either 10 or 12 oz bags every other week. I have ordered another 32oz container so I can have another type of bean to choose from =)

A note about the huge sticker: it's ugly! I haven't tried to remove it yet, but plan to one day (I pay attention to details). As my temporary fix, I cover it with the folded the coffee bag (held on with a rubber band) to tell me what kind of beans are in the container and remind me of the roast date.

Pros:
Fun to use, Reasonable Price, Keeps coffee beans fresh

Cons:
Huge ugly sticker, Takes a extra step to use

I use this product to store my beans. It does seem to keep them fresh, although I don't keep my beans any longer than a week, so it's really just for piece of mind. The smaller size is not large enough to fit a full pound.
