Pirate Coffee Company uses FDA approved foil bags that are heat sealed. We also use a one-way de-gassing valve to keep the newly roasted product at peak freshness. Our White bags are for our Estate coffees, our GREEN bags are for our Water Processed decaffeinated coffee and our BLACK bags are for our exclusive Pirate Blends. Three and Five pound orders are shipped in FDA approved 6 mil Vinyl bags with a one-way valve for de-gassing.
The Pirate recommends storing the coffee in a cool, dark and dry environment. Freezing is OK as long as the freezer is a manual defrost type. The Pirate does not recommend using a “Frost Free” freezer for storage.
