Storing coffee properly is easy, once you know what you're trying to solve for: preventing oxidation (spoiling) by limiting (as much as possible) exposure to air, moisture, and sunlight. Resealable coffee bags and tins are useful, as are the tinted hoppers of some fancier grinders. If you're storing in a bag, and you've procured fresh coffee (a must for a great cup), make sure it has a degassing valve.
