Update Feb 07 2012
So I have had the can for half a year and it's still working out great! The latching mechanism is still solid and my coffee stays fresh. I did want to note that I was unaware that CO2 buildup was an issue for folks who roast their own beans (something I've never done but wanted to do). Therefore my commentary on the CO2 valve was unwarranted as it does serve a much needed purpose. So, it's hard to find any flaws with the can. I'm very happy and would still suggest this to anyone who's looking for a great storage can for their coffee.
If there were a way to vacuum the air out of the can, this thing would be perfect.
Most coffee storage canisters try to make a vacuum to protect coffee from oxygenation. This seems like the best approach, except that on domestic equipment it is very hard to create and maintain a decent vacuum and a lot of these canisters gradually get less effective to the point where they are not making much of a vacuum at all. Then there is the Airscape which takes the approach of pushing out as much air as possible, but unfortunately it cannot get it all out.
This product uses the fact that coffee beans release CO2. The valve allows gases out but not back in. So when you close the canister (and it has a good quality seal and latch which ensures it is tightly closed) the CO2 produced by the beans gradually pushes all the oxygen (and then the excess CO2) out of the canister.
Now how effective this is, is the subject of some debate in the coffee community (as it seems is everything). For example, some people are saying that it doesn't work as well if you open the canister frequently. Obviously this is true with any system but I'm not sure how much of an effect it has on this canister. I'm not sure how long it actually takes for the canister to expel all the oxygen. It'd be good if someone with a chemistry or coffee beanology degree could work this out!
I also surmise that this product will work better if your beans start out freshly roasted so they are producing plenty of CO2 (but if you're not starting with freshly roasted beans, why worry how you store them) and if the canister has more coffee in it (so choose the smaller size if you will never have more than 12oz in storage).Read more ›

I really like these vaults, great seal and super finish and the CO2 valve is a bonusPublished 2 days ago by David MacLaurin
A little pricey but nice quality. Definitely keeps my coffee fresh.Published 2 days ago by Chuck-in-the-'Hood
This thing is not exactly heavy duty but it does not have to be just to hold coffee. Made well enough and seals well, which is what it is designed to do. Read morePublished 2 days ago by DaytonaDan
