Been using a foodsaver home vacuum with the large mouth canning jar
attachment since '05 with great success. Quarts will hold 1.5lbs and
1/2 gallon 3lbs, store in light free coolish spot.

I don't have any experience with vacuum packing, and am curious about vacuum sealing green coffee. I'm also wondering if a vacuum Mason jar be better than a plastic bag (I'd cut the valves off the bags, drill a hole through the lid, and glue them on)?  I'm worried that odours, humidity, and other bad stuff could make it through the plastic and contaminate my beans. I've been storing my beans in burlap or cotton sacks under my kitchen counter.  There've been some verry humid and hot days where I live, and I'm wondering if it is has affected my coffee, as I'm getting a sour flavour when I roast.   Thanks.
