[Homeroast] storage right after roast

Once the roast has rested for a day or so, you want to keep exposure to oxygen as small as possible. Someone (and I’m traveling right now and don’t recall exactly who) sells a canister with an internal lid you can push down to the top of the beans to keep out as much oxygen as possible. My roasts seem to last longer when I use this instead of just a closed-lid container. 

When I get back to California I’ll look it up and give you the name.
