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.
The BeanSafe uses four clasps around the top of the container to secure your beans and has a valve in the top to force air out. The Tightvac uses a button on the side of the top piece that you depress when you want to secure your beans. As you press the top piece down (with the button pushed in) air is forced out. As other reviewers have mentioned, this does not form a perfect vacuum, but it comes pretty close and gives the CO2 from your beans a way to escape. The TIghtvac works best when the lower chamber is full of beans.
The BeanSafe feels sturdier; the Tightvac's walls are fairly thin and I suspect they would not hold up as well if dropped. All in all, I am reasonably happy with the Tightvac but would recommend the BeanSafe instead if you choose only one solution.
In fact there is not even an (absolutely) airtight seal (though it's close enough). Others have stated this (I'm not sure why I didn't take notice). The lid has a snug interference fit with the canister (meaning they just slide together). There is a button in the lid you need to press to allow the lid to slide on or off, but all the air in the can is still in there and, of course, gets refreshed every time you open it. It doesn't get vacuumed out when you close it (which is the impression you get). The button merely allows the volume of air in the lid out as you close it. So you might just as well use a screw or snap on lid. In fact you could get a better air seal. There is no magic involving air here. It's just a jar with a fancy lid.
I was looking for the ultimate coffee bean storage, but this isn't it - you're probably better off just using the valved bags the beans come in as you can squeeze excess air out of them. If you put 1/2 pound of coffee in this jar there is still half a container of air in there helping your coffee age. Even if you fill it there is still air (and therefore oxygen) in there around the beans BECAUSE THERE IS NO VACUUM.
Repeat - there is no vacuum - there isn't even a way for excess coffee gas to escape (like the Friis apparently does). There is no way for excess CO2 to escape - the 'vent' only vents when you push the button.
Having said that it is still a handy, durable container. I would return them except it would cost too much. I can't believe Amazon lets Tightvac get away with this false description.
EDIT: I gave this to my son, and he says it exactly holds one pound of coffee beans PLUS a small coffee measure. I forgot that most coffee is sold in 12-ounce bags now. Both of us love this container - the lid fits very snugly and keeps the coffee fresh. I use the 1/2 lb size now and just put all the beans in that will fit when I open a new bag, and use up the beans in the bag for the 3 or 4 ounces that won't fit. The lid fits so snugly that you can lift the container up by the lid and it won't come off until you press the button on the side of the lid.
