    Green Bean storage

    Do I need to take any special steps to store green beans? My understanding is that green beans are better because they don't lose flavor via evaporation of their oils etc while being stored. Can I just leave them in a ziploc or should I take some other steps?

    Thanks.

    I store them in cotton bags, available from tons of sources. That bean is still 12-20% water and to me, it just seems logical to let it breathe during storage. As such, I shy away from ziplocks for green storage.

    Store them in something that breathes, cotton bag, burlap sack, paper bag... They are shipped in burlap sacks but I think brown paper bags work just as well. Also keep them out of direct sunlight as this will cause the beans to fade and it makes them dull and boring!

    They are stored and shipped in burlap bags, similar to potato bags of old. They are stored at room temperature in a dry climate preferably. That is the standard storage method.

    Green beans are much easier to store than roasted beans.

    Store them in a breathable bag ( paper, burlap, cotton, etc...), not in sunlight and also in room tempurture. You may wonder why in a breathable bag? Well the beans still have moisture and need to be able to release the moisture, that allows the bean to stay fresh and not go bad. The direct sun light will dry the beans and there should be at least 10% moisture in your bean.

    I store mine in cotton bags also. In the closet where it is dark and the temp stays about the same.

    What is considered room temperture? To be on the safe side keep them stored in a cool temp and as most said here in a burlap bag. If you know of a local coffee roaster ask them for a bag or two. I give them away for free to lots of people in our community that use them for their flower beds, etc. I generally cut them up and use them for packing materials when shipping out our internet orders.

    Store your green beans in any container that has a closed lid. Plastic ware is fine.
