Your precious Kona should be consumed within 10 days to 2 weeks after roasting... max of 3 weeks, and that's really pushing it.
Store it in a cool, dry place away from sunlight... other than that, enjoy your coffee---fresh.
John P said:Why in the world would you buy Kona and not drink it black? Unless it is roasted improperly, or it is brewed improperly, it should not need cream/sugar. Properly roasted, properly brewed coffee needs nothing added to it, the varietal flavors should shine in the cup.
Adding cream/sugar is generally a habit formed by years of drinking substandard coffee where one NEEDS to add cream/sugar to make it palatable.
