Our Conclusion

The Coffeevac is convenient and sturdy for anyone needing to store dry goods. It’s a great product for storing coffee and can also be used for tea or other dry goods like nuts, snacks, crackers, and cookies. The downsides? It can’t go in your dishwasher, and you won’t be able to store liquids. Still, if you’re willing to hand-wash and want a good coffee storage container, give the Coffeevac a try! And if you’re wondering about your brewed coffee, learn how long it stays good.

Frequently Asked Questions

What comes in the box?

The Coffeevac arrives assembled in the box. Taken apart, it consists of a lid and the container body.

Is it vacuum sealed?

The patented system creates a partial vacuum. After you place the top on the container and press the button, you pull the top up to create the vacuum. The volume of air removed is equal to the size of the cap, and this is enough to keep dry goods fresh for extended periods.

Are Coffeevacs smell proof?

The vacuum system allows goods to de-gas through a one-way valve while not letting oxygen in; however, stronger odors may leak during de-gassing. It’s recommended to keep medicinal herbs in a storage bag inside the Coffeevac to contain their heavy smell.

Are Coffeevacs durable?

Yes, the containers are made with sturdy plastic (PS #6). If your delivery person tends to throw your packages onto your front porch or the container otherwise arrives damaged, the manufacturer will replace it.

Can I put it in the dishwasher?

No, the containers are hand-wash only.
