Have you tried freezing your beans. Try that experiment.  ;) You might be surprised how much better the thawed, frozen-beans will taste compared to 2 or 3 week old beans left out. They will taste wonderfully fresh in comparison.

I had a small 150 gram batch of Rwanda Dukunde Kawa Musasa that I was 
enjoying prior to a 2 week vacation.  Couldn't bear to toss what was 
left before leaving, so I left it in the grinder.  Came back and brewed 
a cup upon my return to finish it off.  Aarghh!  Beans were perhaps 23 
days post-roast.  Tasted like Folgers.  Amazing, unintended experiment 
in deterioration.
