Storing Green Coffee Beans for roasting roaster

I use wide mouth canning jars and a Foodsaver vacuum packer to store and keep the green beans fresh. Qt jars hold 1 1/2 pounds of green beans. When packed the jars are labeled and dated. The jars are then stored in a cool dark place. I use a dead freezer. Keeps a good stable environment. For small amounts a dead mini-fridge would work well too.
