Product Description

Your coffee beans will always be fresh and tasty with the Coffee Bean Vac! This battery-operated, motorized unit is simple to use and creates a powerful vacuum seal in one step.



Cordless and portable, the Coffee Bean Vac is perfect for counter tops, pantries or travel. And it's not just limited to coffee and espresso beans, either! You can also store teas, nuts, chocolate, brown sugar, spices or any other gourmet food that you'd like to keep deliciously fresh.

How the Coffee Bean Vac Works

  • Place coffee or espresso beans inside
  • Close the handle
  • Within 1-2 minutes, the Coffee Bean Vac will vacuum seal in your coffee beans
  • When the seal is complete, the vacuum indicator button will be depressed

Features & Functionality of the Coffee Bean Vac

  • Powerful vacuum seal keeps your java as fresh as can be!
  • The Coffee Bean Vac features a timer so you can set it to automatically reactivate the seal every 12, 24 or 48 hours.
  • The inner container of the unit is removable and dishwasher safe for easy cleaning

Power: Requires 4 AA batteries (not included)

Pros
  • Fresh Beans - The Coffee Bean Vac keeps beans fresh and ready for your morning cup o' joe
  • Self Sealing - You can set your Bean Vac to reseal itself at regular intervals, so you don't need to worry about stale beans
Cons
  • Capacity - Only holds about 1.5 pounds of coffee, so a big bag of beans might not all fit
  • Noise - The Coffee Bean Vac is a little loud, so be prepared to hear it resealing itself
Ease of Use 5
Ease of Care and Maintenance 5
Overall Value for the Money 4
How Does it Compare? The Coffee Bean Vac holds more coffee than the Airscape, but keeps beans at about the same freshness level.
Tips and Tricks For a better seal, wipe the rim of the Bean Vac if you notice debris.

I just purchased this, it works fine. However the vacuum starts working at least 2 times a day wife said, is it normal? If I understand correctly, every vacuum operation will seal the canister till next time I open the lid. Would that be a leak somewhere? Thanks! Alex
A shopper on Dec 21, 2012
Best Answer: On my coffee bean vac, you can set the frequency of the vacuum process to 12, 24, or 48 hours (remove the battery cover on the bottom to see the time switch). The 12-hour setting works especially well with home roasted or very freshly roasted store-bought coffee, because these beans give off carbon dioxide (gassing off). The twice-daily schedule helps maintain the vacuum seal. Also, it is really important to wipe the sealing area on the canister and the lid from time to time with a damp cloth. Even a few coffee particles can cause air seepage over the course of 8 to 12 hours.

I hope this helps,
Ken M.

how many lbs or oz does it hold?
Jim D on Jan 19, 2012
Best Answer: Hello Jim,

If I could change one thing about the coffee bean vac it would be that it holds a full pound of coffee, it's close but not quite. Maybe a smaller bean? BUT having used it now I would buy it again. It works! It has a removable container that lets us fill the bean hopper on our super automatic in seconds. The little button on top of the lid is also a nice touch, at a glance it tells you beans are in a vacuum. If you have kids in school they can use it for their science projects too. I can't imagine life without coffee!

How do you remove the filter to clean it? Lately my unit havent been vaccuming out the air so I figured maybe the filter in the lid needs to be clean but I can't figure out how to open the filter covering without risking breaking my fingernails. And yes I cleaned the rims but it didn't resolve the problem.
barinthus on May 12, 2013
Best Answer: I doubt you will break a nail; I just "hook" my nail on the rim of the cover by going to the base and just pulling my finger up until it catches. Mine just pops off; no glue or tight pressure fit. Otherwise, use the edge of a pocket or small paring knife. Also, there is a filter under the inner contain; just lift that out and there is a similar filter setup.

I had a problem like yours; I pulled out the filters and cleaned them,(no sign of dirt or residue) but it turned out that after a year, my Coffee Vac just crapped out!! It sounded like it meant well, but the vacuum was just kaput! I was going to send it back, but never did and just ordered a new one; after 1 year, still chugging away!

How much does this Coffee bean vac hold?
A shopper on Jan 12, 2012
Best Answer: I put in my bagged whole beans (1 pound) - I just put the bag right in the Coffee Bean Vac and it fits just fine. Probably if I spilled the beans (no pun intended) in there - about a 1.5 pounds would fit?

Worked great for 3 years and then failed. The motor that evacuates the air would not shut off. I expect it is the sensing switch that has an indicator that sinks into the top as the vacuum is created. What the heck for 39 bucks I will buy another one. (Posted on 9/28/2014)

I found the fresh coffee you get that dosen't have a prolong life to it stays fresher longer. I've used my canister since I've received it. It does scare you the first time you hear it ticking and wonder where its coming from! It does what its meant to do "keep coffee fresh" Love it!

I PURCHASED TWO UNITS....ONE WAS TO BE A GIFT. AFTER READING REVIEWS SCATTERED OVER THE NET, THE ONLY DRAW BACK PEOPLE HAD WAS WITH IT USING BATTERIES. SO, TO FIX THIS, I PURCHASED TWO 6VDC WALL TYPE TRANSFORMERS AND ATTACHED TO THE UNITS. WELL, ONE UNIT WORKED - THE 2ND. ONE WOULD NOT SHUT OFF. I CALLED THE FACTORY AND THE LADY TOLD ME SHE FELT IT WAS THE IC CHIP THAT HAD NOT BEEN PROGRAMMED AND SHE WOULD SEND A NEW UNIT TO ME FOR FREE! GREAT MARKS FOR FACTORY -EXCEPT- ONE SMALL NO,NO...SHE DIDN'T TELL ME SHE ONLY DID RETURNS, ETC. ONE DAY A WEEK....SO I WAITED A WEEK WONDERING WHAT HAPPENED TO MY UNIT.
THIS IS WHY I GIVE IT A 4 MARK..... NO AC POWER.
THE UNIT WHEN WORKING DOES GREAT AND THE COFFEE IS LIKE RIGHT OUT OF THE BAG. I BELIEVE YOU WILL BE PLEASED AND KNOW THAT YOU CAN CHANGE TO AC VERY EASY.

Pros:
Great Taste, Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Commercial Grade

Fresh Beans fresherReview by Marc WLM

2.2lb bag of coffee, keeps beans fresh, for unused potion, via another bean vac. Don't know if it's the battery or what, I bought 2, one keeps unused beans, other for daily use, daily use one will act up once in a long while, where the air is removed, then later check, you'll see the valve up, which means air got it again. Just lifting the handle and making sure it goes thru the process of removing all air inside, (valve at the time going down further the the jug surface) then all is fine. Overall, a very good product.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Easy To Clean

Cons:

Frees up valuable refrigerator space!Review by Augsburg57
Quality
Value

The coffee bean vac has worked great and is easy to use. I checked five stars, but I am still waiting to see how it goes through batteries. (I've had it a couple of weeks and it is still going strong on the first set.) I set the bean vac to pump the air down once every 24 hours - which seems to work fine. The unit is a bit noisy when it pumps the air down, but that only happens for about a minute after you close the lid. The 1.5 lbs. capacity lets me dump in a standard one pound bag easily. I used to store my whole beans in an airtight can in the refrigerator taking up valuable space. Now the beans stay in the bean vac on the counter, and they stay just as fresh - if not fresher. So far, I'm very happy with the bean vac.

Pros:
Easy To Use, Great Taste

Cons:
Noisy (Posted on 5/15/2010)

This is a great product. This thing really works.
I like having it on my counter next to my grinder. I use my scoop for just enough beans for the days shot; so, it is opened every day. Fun!!
I wonder how long the batteries will last? One month and counting.
