A shopper asked: I've heard that you need a valve on coffee bean containers in order to allow for co2 gas that escapes the beans ex: fris & all coffee bags , why would they not provide that feature? Mar 19, 2014

Glenda M: The lid acts as a valve. When you put the black lid in, it pushes most of the air out of the canister. You then lock the lid in and put the clear lid on. The first air creates such a compact space that only co2 escapes, and not the flavor of the beans. The clear lid allows for any co2 that does escape to be let out just like the bags of coffee you buy at a store. It's very neat. Mar 20, 2014

Robert H: I can't speak to whether or not a valve should be included, but I can say that I've seen a significant improvement in the lifetime of the beans in this container before the quality starts to fall off. Perhaps the valve would be more useful if the container was used for longer-term storage? I typically use my beans within 10-14 days. Mar 20, 2014

Kirit P: I suppose you need an escape valve if you are storing the beans for a long time in a vacuum bag. Since during routine use of the coffee containers, one tends to open the container at least every few days, any CO2 collected would escape and would not collect to spoil the flavour of the coffee. Hope this explains your question. Mar 22, 2014

Karalee K: There are a few holes in the vacuum top which creates an air release when you close the vacuum top. I use mine every day so I do not worry about CO2 gas build up. I love mine and it keeps my coffee fresh. Mar 26, 2014

Darren K: Max,

When I bought my canister last year, I remember reading the same complaint about sticker residue. I wasn't too concerned, however, because I've used a citrus product called Goo-gone to successfully remove sticker residue from other products.
If I remember correctly, I slowly and carefully removed the sticker without any problems. My copper-colored canister has no sign of the sticker and still looks new. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one of these. They look great and work great! I'm glad I bought it.
(I wouldn't doubt that some stickers might not pull off cleanly, but I wouldn't let that keep you from getting one; like I said, Goo-gone I'm sure would work gently to remove the leftover sticker, and then just wash off the Goo-gone with a good dish-washing detergent.)

Theodore B: As i recall, yes the label was way too hard to get off. Obviously, they used the wrong adhesive to adhere the label. It took a lot of scraping and Goof Off to remove the residue. The canister is great however. So I still highly recommend them. Maybe you will get lucky and the manufacturer has corrected the label problem since I bought mine. Sep 10, 2013

Nathan O: I purchased this canister (in green) a few weeks ago, and had not removed the label. I just now attempted to pull it off, slowly, and it came off with ease, leaving a very small amount of easy to remove residue. The label is thick enough that it comes off in one piece. Sep 14, 2013

A shopper asked: Is the canister air tight with just the black lid on?

If so, what is the purpose of the clear lid? Also why does it matter if the clear lid blocks out UV light, if the contents are under the black lid? Thanks!

JEFFREY W: The clear top is just an additional sealer as it has rubber O'ring. You probably would be fine with just the black sealer. Mar 11, 2014
Reply to JEFFREY Good answer? Yes (2) No (0)
Rick W: Owning these canisters, it seems the only purpose of the clear lid is to make the canister look more like any other one you would buy. The clear lid does have a port for letting out any CO2 from the beans and, in fairness, probably acts like a secondary seal. Most of the benefit comes from the black locking kid on the inside. I would consider the black lid to have a seal close to air tight. I think SCG has a video of them pulling shots after having stored beans in this container, as well as freezing. The beans will definitely not last forever in these containers but if you are like me and buy a few pounds at a time from a local roaster, they certainly keep the extra beans from getting old quickly. I'd say you could store them a month and not notice any real significant loss of flavor. I'm not a barista though. :0) I own two of the larger ones and love them.

Hope this helps.

STAN K: Yes. The canister is airtight with just the black lid. The clear lid is used for storage where you want to see the contents inside. The clear lid also has a silicone double lip seal and a one way valve- . I believe the combo lids give you diiferent seal/storage options. As to the blocking UV light- to protect contents when not using the black inner lid ?? Or use them both as a double seal- many choices. I like them- I use mine with whole coffe beans and they work great. Mar 11, 2014
Reply to STAN Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
chris c: The clear lid has a one way valve on it, I have not seen liturature about it but I assume as coffee continues to off gas , after roasting, this may be a way for it to escape although one would think if the black lid is truly air tight, and as long as you flip the Handel over, I believe it is, how is it possible to off gas???? Beats me, but I own two of them and I think they work great. Espresso has been good for two weeks plus!!!! Buy it! Mar 11, 2014
Reply to chris Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Calvin T: It is air tight with just the black lid/piston on.
The clear lid might be there so you can put things on top of the canister without putting them IN the canister (like stacking things in a pantry), or you can use it as a standard canister I suppose (may be best for something like flour or powdered ingredients)
Mar 11, 2014
Reply to Calvin Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Randy R: I think the clear lid adds another layer of protection to further reduce the amount of air reaching the coffee beans. It would be difficult to create anything that removed and kept 100% of the air out without being very cost prohibitive. Mar 11, 2014
Reply to Randy Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Shawn S: Second Jeffrey's answer. The clear lid also serves as a flat top so other items can be stacked on it. Mar 11, 2014

Steve C: The canister is airtight with just the black lid. I broke a clear lid to my smaller (32oz) unit and it still works just fine. The clear lid works as a secondary lid, in my mind, and only serves to keep debris and the like out of the can.

Overall, these canisters work extremely well. I have been using them now for a couple of years to keep a one kilo bag of beans fresh (I use one 64oz Airscape and one 1QT Vacuvin container and between them, they nearly hold the whole kilo of fresh beans. I typically use the beans in the Airscape canister first - then transfer the beans from the Vacuvin to the Airscape, as the Airscape is much easier to use on a daily basis. Normally, I use the whole kilo in just less than two weeks and the beans are still fresh when I grind them. The system is a little clunky, but it works.

Brandon B: Let me first say I own 3 of these canisters. After owning and using these with multiple style of beans this is not about a minimalistic approach. The black top is used to compress the air out of the bean area. It is not 100% air tight but close. The UV top acts as a second defense to exposure to the environment. Granted, your question about needing both tops is understandable but when you can spend upwards of $30.00 or more for beans, I demand the best system. I pull only espresso shots, nothing else, so the performance of my beans must be first and foremost fresh. I've tried multiple storage devices and nothing keeps my beans fresh for two weeks, (I use a pound every two weeks on average). A decent barista can utilize a minimal machine, but fresh beans is not an area one should ever skimp on. Mar 12, 2014
Reply to Brandon Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Britt L: Okay, I'm not a physicist or a chemist. But I am satisfied that the Airscape keeps my espresso beans fresher than a standard canister, whatever that is. The rest is speculation.

My guess is that the canister is air tight with just the black lid on. It takes some pressure to push the black lid down. Here's more guessing. The clear lid has a valve at the top, and I would think that some out-gassing takes place. I have no idea of the source of that gas--or if it exists, for that matter. And I've given no thought to UV light. I mean some of this has to be ad copy, right? And ad people willl say anything.

So all I can really tell you is that I have been satisfied with the Airscape. Hope that helps.

Elaine T: It is not a vacuum seal. But the black lid does squeeze out air - only black lid does that, clear lid doesn't affect extra air in the canister. I'm not sure that the black lid, however, has UV protection - that seems to be only clear lid. It's like wearing a shirt with UV/sunscreen protection. You can wear a shirt, even a dark one, and still have the UV get to your skin. Same with the coffee beans under the black lid without the clear lid. If the canister is protected, shaded - the clear lid may be irrelevant. Mar 11, 2014

Ken F: Yes, The black lid is completely air tight.

The only reason for the Clear lid is ascetics. I don't believe it is really needed. but it doesn't hurt to have it

Actually the black lid is so air tight my mother-in-law has a hard time getting it open because it creates such a good seal in the canister.

Arka C: Here's my observation from months of use: the clear lid is a vital component and makes the whole combination work. It provides an air column seal above the black lid, providing more isolation from the outside air. Without it the black lid alone won't be as effective. Mar 12, 2014

KCat K asked: I've noticed the gasket (silicone?) on my Airscapes is turning pink. I'm not worried about it but it surprised me. I have half-caff Star**** in one and half-caff local roasters in the other and the former is turning the gasket quite pink while the latter has only just slightly shaded. I began using both at the same time. These clear gaskets never come in contact with the coffee beans so I assume this is outgassing of the volatile compounds in the coffee. Anyone else seen this?

Sherry M: I have three of the large Airscape Canisters (64 oz). Only slight discoloration (yellowing) from coffee on the silicone ring sealer attached to the clear plastic top. NOT PINK. I use regular coffee beans (no decaf) that I grind at the market (Equal Exchange, Pegeaus, and Brands from Seattle Grind, etc) I don't ever buy Star****. My canisters are always filled. We go through a lot of espresso and the canisters are lined up according to date. I don't wash them. I wipe them thoroughly before each refilling with paper towel or clean cloth.

Hope this helps.

Philip C: First off, I love this container! I took a look. The gasket on the clear cover is a deep amber. It is uniformly amber, the same color above and below the seal. I don't remember what color it was when I bought it. The inner plunger has a really good seal so I am not sure about out gasping. Maybe its just aging.

I store Star**** espresso beans pretty much all the time. No decaf. We drink a lot of espresso so there have been a lot of beans stored in it over time.

David R: Sorry, but I cannot suggest why you are getting this discoloration. All 4 of my Airscape canister gaskets have taken on a brown tint, but it never occurred to me to be a cause for concern. Pink?!? Strange. Perhaps a good coffee cleaning product would remove it. I use a product called "Clean That Pot" by Champion Chemical Company that does a superb job of stripping coffee stains from most anything. You can find it at Staples along with other retailers. Feb 26, 2013

KCat K: The tint on the one that is the local roaster is more of a brown. The Star**** is distinctly pink. Like I said, I'm not really concerned about it. Just found it really odd. The two have distinctly different smells. The local roast has a much sweeter smell. The Star**** is a harsher smell and is a more acidic coffee. Don't know if that is why it's so different in color on the gasket. I'll see what a good cleaning does with the gaskets but it's not a big deal. It doesn't really show up when it's closed. As long as the nature of the gasket isn't changed either by the gasses? or by my washing too conscientiously, I'm good. Feb 26, 2013
David M: Seattle Coffee Gear asked me to reply to your question because I purchased the 64 oz Airscape Canister about the same time as you did.

I have stored (consistently) only regular dark roast coffee. There is very slight discoloration of the gasket on the clear outside lid; it is more light brown than pink. There has been no discloration to the black inside lid.

The Canister works well.

Linda B: I also have 2 of these canisters; I haven't noticed any discoloration of the gasket on either one--yet, anyway. I rotate various beans in them, mostly pretty oily dark roasts. I don't know if the type of beans has a bearing on this or not. Sorry I can't provide an explanation! Do you wash them by hand? I wish you luck with getting a response. Feb 26, 2013
Reply to Linda Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
KCat K: Well, I've only had them about a month and quite honestly, haven't felt the need to wash them other than the first day. I keep the same coffee in them at all times so I treat them like I treat my fountain pens. (same ink? just cycle it through). Although I do empty out "bean crumbs" at the bottom and wipe them out so there's no stale stuff when I put fresh beans in. The Star***** is a dark roast and but not oily. The other is medium-dark and very oily yet not altering the color as much. hmmm. Maybe the oils act as a barrier against the gasses? Weird. Feb 26, 2013
Theodore B: Never had this problem with my Airscape. I've not seen silicone turn pink in any uses where it is a gasket - like on my Kleen Kanteen water bottles. Pink is sometimes associated with mold/mildew - like you might see in your shower occasionally. Does the pink scrub off? If so, could be due to moisture. Feb 26, 2013
Reply to Theodore Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
KCat K: Nope. Definitely *in* the gasket. Not a critter.It isn't old enough to have grown anything and it hasn't been stored wet at all. We've had a rather dry winter here as well. Pretty sure this is just from the coffee. Feb 26, 2013
Theodore B: I just examined my Airscape gasket. I use it to store whole beans, not ground coffee. The translucent gasket on the outer lid is very light tan or brown - slightly stained by the coffee beans, I suppose. Although the outer lid gasket doesn't come in direct contact with the coffee beans, the beans do come in contact with the sides of the canister - so any good CSI would tell you you will have "transfer". (There's a subject for a Kat video.) The inner lid has a black gasket and shows no stain or color. I typically put coffee in the container within one to three days of the roast date - so it must be off-gassing. Yet no pink . . . Feb 26, 2013
Calvin T: I have bought a few of these and 1 of them came in the box with a pink tint to the gasket. It must be something that happened in manufacturing since it was like this brand new Maybe you just didn't notice it right away? All my other airscapes have clear gaskets. Mar 11, 2014
Reply to Calvin Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
chris c: I own two of these, although for a relatively short time, December, and the gaskets remain as clear as when purchased. it may be from off gassing as you said, or perhaps is your canister anywhere near any kind of volatile or caustic substance? Feb 28, 2013

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 :)

What a great yet simple idea -- this seems to do a really good job keeping the beans fresh by minimizing their contact with air. Seems like a very well made canister, it should last a long time. Price was right too, a little expensive for a canister but worth it for the air tight feature. I'll be getting another one.

This container is great. I got the big 64oz in Paprika. It seems very much like a copper finish. I wish I had purchased 2 because some bags are bigger (lavaza) than this can hold. I cannot attest for the freshness that it claims to keep. It is very much keeping it airtight as there is major suction even when pulling up the lid with the valve open.

The Airscape works well and looks nice. I think the sizing is a bit weird though - the 64oz is bigger than I need for most bags of coffee, and the 32oz is too small. Why not size them more appropriately for retail coffee bean purchase?

These are wonderful canisters and quite beautiful. The airtight mechanism is easy to use and really works. Coffee stays fresh for weeks. I have whole beans in mine and after 2 weeks, they still have a sheen on them! Highly recommend!

I know fresh beans are the best within a few days, but this really stretches out the freshness until the beans are gone!! Great job in the design and attractiveness of the container and the price wasn't prohibitive as I bought TWO and am thinking of buying one for the daughter in Portland!!

I've just received this product (a 64 oz AirScape in chrome color), but already I am very impressed with it. I am using this product to store roasted coffee beans with a goal of retaining freshness to the greatest extent possible. The seal and one-way valve are obviously effective in removing as much air as possible in the home setting, while still allowing ease of access on a daily basis. Other reviewers mentioned concerns regarding the gauge of the stainless steel, but the gauge appears appropriate and this canister should function well in normal daily operation and or its intended use. It should be handled with respect and not banged against other surfaces. All bets are off should it find its way into use in the kid's sandbox.

The tip to use a blowdryer to remove the product label was excellent. I aimed the dryer at the label until the canister was quite warm. At this point the label peeled away easily using a slow, steady motion.

Made in China, sold in the US by a firm from Missoula, MT, and purchased from Seattle Coffee Gear. Thank you SCG!

I used to have a ceramic container which sealed at the top, but it did not get any air out of itself when you closed it. My coffee seems fresher using Airscape canister. I love that the beans are more fragrant for a longer period of time. It is not the perfect answer to coffee bean freshness, but it is a no hassle way of keeping your coffee reasonably fresh. I do wonder what will happen to this canister if I bang it a bit. It is definitely not made of heavy gauge metal and seems as if will ding/crunch somewhat easily (knock on wood).
NOTE: If you grind your beans in bulk, do not store the ground coffee using this system. Actually, if you grind your coffee in bulk, freshness is evidently not too high on your list and this would not be a good investment for you, IMO. I would suggest investing in a coffee grinder before spending $25 plus shipping on this canister.

We were skeptical at frist before purchasing this container as many products claim to be "airtight", but this a nifty container. The inside lid has a handle you hold to push the lid down and you can hear the air being pushed out. Solid, not cheaply made, though price is a bit high I think. We were storing our beans in a Food Saver container and it was always a hassle to open and reseal again and again, plus we don't consume a lot of coffee so have found the beans to keep fresher longer in the Arscape Canister. Am thinking of getting a smaller one for brown sugar!

Pretty Clever Product

I purchased two of these to hold 1 lb. of coffee each, a job which they do with just a little room to spare. The idea is a pretty clever one, I think, and one which does not require batteries, motors, or other parts that can quickly wear out and break. I considered the vacuum type canisters before purchasing these. I am quite glad I opted for the Airscape instead. When you are ready to seal the contents back up, you make sure the handle is raised and push downward. You hear the air going from the inside out through the vent holes. Then press the handle down, effectively sealing the lid. The clear plastic top has a seal ring around it as well. I presume it is a sort of double seal. The only concern I have about the Airscape is washing the lid. It has those holes through which the air escapes, so when you wash the lid, water can get into that "sandwich" space. However, I do not immerse it, and I seem to be doing well just shaking the lid a bit and allowing it to air dry overnight.

I'd get more of these for other things we store, but they are too pricey to have many.

I have to be honest, I wanted to love this product but I don't. Major reason is because I buy my coffee and have it ground from our local amazing coffee house. I store the grinds in this canister and it is a complete mess. Every time I pull the top off, there are grinds everywhere. I set the top down on the counter, more grinds, grinds everywhere every time I use it and it is more of a mess and trouble then it is worth! It does an okay job at keeping it fresh, but not worth the MESS! It may work better for those just storing beans, but for my purposes this was NOT a good solution.

Basically I think this is a good idea but not great quality, and is overpriced.It does seem to do a good job of extending the life of beans. Recently my grinder broke and the replacement was repeatedly delayed. By the time I was back in business the beans I had were well past the point where I would normally want to use them, but to my suprise after being stored in the canister they were still quite decent.On the negative side, this is very thin metal, and it bends and deforms easily. Right out of the box my canisters were no longer round but slightly flattened. The round lids kind of force them back into shape, and the gasket is flexible enough that it should manage a good seal anyway, but still. If something like this could be done in ceramic instead of metal, I'd be very interested to see that.Worse, one canister had a gouge down the inside, and the other was chipped all around the bottom edge. And of course there's those cursed stickers.Cleaning is a little bit of a pain, specifically the inner lid. It gets coffee oils on it, and periodically you want to give it a better clean than just wiping it down, but then water gets inside and needs a good while to dry out. So you have to plan ahead for a time to clean it when you're not going to need to use the canister for a day or so.I got mine on sale--think it was buy one large & get the second large for [$]--and at that price I feel OK about my purchase. And I haven't found anything else that does a better job. So I'd recommend it, but say wait for a sale. And hope the Airscape people improve their quality control.

While the canister material is on the thin side, it's still strong enough to do the job. The valve is tight fitting so it's slow pushing down, and pulling back up. Sometime's i get the valve in a little crooked, but a slight push down, then slowly pull it out. Best of all is the burst of the smell of the bean's when i remove the valve. Seem's as fresh as when i opened the package and poured them in.
When i opened the box that it was delivered in i couldn't believe how well these canister's were packed. I watched a video on packing a return item on the site, and that's exactly how they were shipped. Best packaging on any item i have ever received from an online order.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Nice fitting lid on top, Valve forces air out, Nice fitting valve, Easy To Clean, Serve's it's purpose well

Cons:
Flimsy canister but ok

I needed some new bean storage and wanted simple with little to maintain and little to break. The Airscape fits the bill.

I did opt for the 64oz model based upon others' recommendations for 16oz of beans. However half the time I buy beans in 12oz volumes and the Airscape seems awfully empty.

Would love to know how this works. You push plunger in to expel air above the beans, but it does not seem to remove air from around the beans like a vacuum containers would, so I have to wonder how long it would keep beans fresh. Then you simply pull the plunger up to open without doing anything so I have to wonder what is stopping air from entering that hole in the middle.

I found it a tight fit to hold an entire pound of beans. Gail and Kat's video showed it holding about 1.25 lbs. Maybe my first bag included more coffee than the label indicated. I like the double lid so I can put a clipping of the coffee label inside and atop the vacuum lid.

The only negative to this otherwise gorgeous and nicely-designed product is the packaging label. What a pain to remove! Tore into the tiniest pieces trying to get it off. Trying to use the removed sticker pieces to lift off the little fragments just left more of them. Had to buy some Sticker Lifter just to get the goo off.

Cans work as advertised. There are essentially two lids, an inner and outer, both plastic. The inner lid that you push down gets a little bit of static cling going on and grinds will stick to it, then of course release onto the counter and floor. Not a big deal but if you're super freaky about cleanliness these might bug you. But they do work as advertised. I like 'em.

I never really knew the best way to keep ground coffee or beans fresh...I only knew that what I was doing wasn't working. Now I know. Every morning when I stumble into my kitchen, I take off the outer lid and pull up the inner lid and that fresh-brewed smell hits me...aahhhh, makes it worth getting out of bed! Do not hesitate to purchase this product...but don't bother with the small size...and don't even think of getting just one! Think of how great they would be for brown sugar, spices, mar (oh, never mind...) anything that is better the fresher it is kept. How about a really big one for dog food???

Some things you should know:
- There is a plunger that you press down to force out the air. The handle is also a valve so the air doesn't leak back in. Handle up, air can flow (and you can press it down or pull it up). Down, it can't. The cover is a second seal on the whole container. This a well thought out design.
- The 64 oz size holds a 1 lb bag of Starbucks beans. But you can't put on the cover. The plunger is at the top so you need to use some of the beans to get the cover on.

Well built quality, Easy To Use

These 64-ounce air-tight storage containers are excellent value and look great. They offer a double-seal protection that locks out air. The different colors will appeal to many customers' decor or to just separate your decaf from regular beans as well as special blends. The 64-ounce will easily hold one pound of beans. If you normally buy in smaller quantities, the 32-ounce will do. But if you buy one pound at a time, these are the perfect way to store the beans.
