Packing and storing roasted beans

Packing and storing roasted coffee beans

The storage conditions of roasted coffee must ensure hygiene and prevent contamination of the product by volatile substances, such as oxygen (which can cause oxidisation) and moisture (which can increase the growth of mould).

Highly-professional companies of renowned traditions such as Saquella do not package coffee immediately after roasting, preferring to let the roasted beans settle and mature in silos.

This process ensures the development of fats and oils – which determine the aromatic base and full flavour of coffee – as well as the aroma and consistency typical of real Italian espresso.
