[Homeroast] Coffee storage

Now that's an interesting idea.  I use a Vacu-vin for wine.  I'll have to 
give it a go on coffee beans.  Seems to me it will remove the oxygen around 
the beans and replace it with carbon dioxide from outgassing.  The stopper 
would then get loose.  I'm thinking it fits well enough, though, that the 
trickle of CO2 around the stopper might keep the O2 out.
