I am storing coffee the way I store other dry good. I pack in Mylar and 5 gallon buckets. I know beans will last longer but I figure even if the coffee degrades a bit over time, it's still coffee! If the world is going to hell in a hand basket coffee will be a premium luxury for the wife and I.

I have done the cold press way in the past.
Grind the bean, put the grounds into a French press, add cold water, let steep over night.
Press in the morning and then heat.
It was a good cup of coffee.

I'll buy a pound of finely ground coffee for my hot coffee, but most of the stuff I drink is iced, and I have a refrigerator full of that.
Do you think that freezing is all that's needed for long term storage?
Raw (unroasted) coffee will last for years. All you need is a black iron pan to roast them.
Roasted coffee starts loosing it's flavor relatively fast.
Freeze dried coffee is supposed to last for ever. Just like Twinkies.
It is possible to grow your own coffee plants. But in northern states you will need a green house. And it will take a couple of years before a plant will give you beans. I'm still waiting...
One picture was last year. Newer picture taken under led grow lamps. Didn't come out too well.

There are absolutely no special storage requirements for storing the green beans. I just leave them in the burlap sacks they come in and stash them on a bottom shelf in the pantry. When I get down to only having 100 pounds on hand, I just buy another 50 pound sack.
I have not yet tried growing my own, but that is definitely on the short list to try. There is a coffee growers club in Tucson. I have not yet figured out if M.T. Acres is at too high of an elevation for me to plant them in the ground or if I will have to plant them in planters and pull them into the garage in the winter.
If you are a coffee-whore like me and Mrs Inor, storing and roasting green beans should be the easiest decision you can ever make!

An ad for one of our local asian markets. At the far right about half way down is an add for coffee (100 packets for one cup each with coffee sugar and creamer ) at less than $0.10 per serving.

It's all true, give or take a lie or two.
Not a bad thing for storage. Amazon sells it but its 23.97 which is not bad all things considered.
