The Ultimate 1 lb Coffee Container
The CFV2 was specifically designed for 1 pound of Coffee. Tea people - it will hold 10 to 16 oz of Darjeeling and green teas. Coffeevac's have a unique patented vacuum closure system, our 2 way valve, allows the carbon dioxide from the beans to slowly escape, without letting oxygen in. Solid and tinted models protect light sensitive beans and tea leaves. Coffeevac's save you money and guarantee smooth rich coffee flavor. The multiuse 16 oz Coffevac can also be used for most dry & wet goods. Store conveniently on the countertop, in the pantry, the fridge or freezer.
Is the Coffeevac patented system easy to use? How does it work?
Yes - To open simply push the press button on the cap, and pull the cap off. To close, push the press button, no need to pump, push cap down onto the body and with this motion the cap volume of air is eliminated, creating a vacuum seal, it’s that simple!
Is this a vacuum sealed container?
The United States patent office granted us a patent on a vacuum container – Our Vacs create a partial vacuum – The same volume of air as the cap is removed and for human purposes this is enough to keep most goods fresh and edible for long periods of time. For the engineers out there technically speaking there is no vacuum until the cap is pulled upward without pressing the button. Either way the Vacs will keep goods fresher for longer and prevent weevil & bug infestations. This reality is why globally we have sold over 10 million Vacs without advertising. No batteries or electricity required!
Are the Vacs smell proof?
The Coffeevac patented system is able to preserve goods for 1 year and beyond by allowing products to breath and degas. Almost all food goods are smell proof inside the Vacs , however some products like freshly roasted coffee and medical herbs may degas, leaking there odor. Our 2 way valve allows gas build up to slowly escape – without letting oxygen in. This is one of the main reasons it can preserve goods for long periods of time.
Note: Medical herbs that are sticky & smelly we recommend using a strong zip lock bag inside the Vac. This helps contain the smell and keeps the area clean where the body and the cap meet. This is essential to create a smell proof situation. The sticky resin often created by these products can compromise the open and close system, causing the caps to crack when opening and closing under such pressure of a glue like substance. Keep these areas free from resin buildup. Use a product like Grundge off. Thus maximizing the efficiency of use and longevity of the Vacs.
Is it moisture and oxygen free?
Yes the Tightvac patented system keeps moisture and oxygen out – these elements cannot enter the container unless you decide to take the cap off.
Are the Vacs durable? How long will they last?
Yes the Vacs are made with NSF & FDA approved PS # 6, this plastic is very strong. These days shipping methods are very rough, packages being thrown, automated systems dropping huge parcels on top of smaller ones. If your Vac arrives damaged please report this IMMEDIATELY UPON RECIEPT for a part or full replacement.
My cap seems loose?
We offer 10 different sizes and 3 styles of Vacs – Solid – Clear and Tint. Often a Solid & Tint Vac will have a slightly looser fitting cap then a clear model. It is a misconception that a tighter fitting cap is working better or holding more of a seal. Loose caps function just as well and will tighten with time and use.
How should I clean the Vacs?
Hand wash only - Use mild or natural cleaners. Do not microwave or put in dishwasher. Always keep the interior of the cap and the top of the container clean. This will ensure easy open and closure.
What does NSF International certified mean?
Recognized by regulatory agencies at the local, state, federal and international level, NSF International certification demonstrates that a product complies with all standard requirements. NSF conducts yearly manufacturing facility audits and product testing to verify that the product continues to comply with the standards set by the FDA. In our case all packaging claims have been tested. The plastics we use have been tested for food safety and our manufacturing facility has been visited and complies with all standards.

Most of the critical comments about the Coffeevac -- no matter which size or color -- on Amazon seem to represent a misunderstanding about how coffee stales. The Coffeevac does not create much of a vacuum, just enough to seal the lid to the canister. But a vacuum doesn't do much in the way of keeping coffee fresh.
The Coffeevac's one way valve, only operates when the lid is closing. Afterwards, the canister is sealed and will not release gas. However, the gas released by coffee is carbon-dioxide which does not cause coffee to stale.
It's true the Coffeevac is made out of plastic, not stainless, or magic unobtanium. However the Coffeevac is reasonably priced and works as well or better than anything else at any price.
Unfortunately, it does not come in red. Red would be nice.
The Coffeevac will slow bean staling by about 3X - 4X compared to hopper or ordinary coffee jar storage. How you brew makes a difference in terms of how you'll perceive both resting and freshness. For espresso use we find that gives us an ideal rested/freshness window of 8 - 21 days ish post-roast. Beans roasted for non-espresso stabilize and stale quicker; and their window is 3 - 14 days ish.
If you want to hold your beans at "peak freshness" for longer periods, you'll need to do some careful freezing.
You can hear the air being drawn out of the container when closing and the air being drawn back in upon reopening.
Be careful not to carry it by the upper portion of the lid- you may inadvertently press the button and spill the beans. *ba dum, psh*.
Also, I wish I would have gotten the half pound variant- a pound of coffee is a lot when you make it in solo batches.
I had an excess of beans that were not my favorite, so did a little experiment.
I filled a tinted glass jar with a screw lid, and this container which has a valve lid.
One month later, the jar had the familiar sour smell of old beans, those in this container did not. In brewing, of course the beans were not as fresh as one week old beans, but still enjoyable.
In my FoodSaver Vacuum container, the coffee always stays moist and will scoop out in high mounds, where coffee stored in stir container always came out dry and just off the scoop. I would rather put my opened bag or coffee on a large zip lock vacuum bag and use a hand pump to create a real vacuum, than to store my coffee in this container. At least I would know that my coffee was staying fresh.
That being said, the container is resistant to being opened if the button is not pressed and holds either loose coffee or coffee bags. A self-vented airtight bag of coffee inside this container is truly well-sealed.
Just don't expect this to provide a true vacuum seal like when air is actively pumped out of the container.
The 1-pound container is quite large and can be a challenge for someone with arthritic hands to pick up. I generally have to slide it around when it is more than 1/3 full; but removing the cover is not as difficult.
I would not recommend putting it in the dishwasher (my lid cracked from the heat).
Great product and have purchased two for myself and many for family members and friends.
