Friis Stainless Steel Coffee Canister Review & Giveaway -- ENDED

Winning comment is #156!


I drink coffee every morning and because I enjoy coffee so much, I have an assortment of coffee beans and ground coffee at home. Sometime ago, I brought some canisters to store my coffee beans and ground coffee. As far as I could tell, they were working great. Then, I received a friis stainless steel coffee canister to review. I ended up transporting my favorite vanilla nut coffee beans into the canister to give it a try. I was really surprised by what a difference it made. I honestly thought that all canisters are pretty much the same. But, I noticed that my coffee beans stored in the friis coffee canister actually tasted more fresher for a longer period of time. There nothing better than opening up the canister to smell the yummy aroma of fresh coffee.
To top it off, the coffee canister is made of stainless steel -- I love that because it matches my stainless steel kitchen appliances perfectly.

To buy your own friis Stainless Steel Coffee Canisters, please go to its website to make your purchase.

Many thanks to friis. The company has generously offered 1 stainless steel canister as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please).

Is the Coffee Savor Dishwasher Safe?
No. The best way to clean your coffee savor is with a damp paper towel. Please thoroughly dry the coffee savor before storing coffee. Any moisture in the canister will degrade the coffee flavor.

I found out not to store coffee in the Refrigerator or Freezer as
taking it in and out of the fridge/freezer causes condensation to develop. This will cause the coffee to deteriorate faster and the coffee will go stale quicker.
