The worse thing you can do with whole bean coffee is...
put them in the fridge.
Yup. Afraid so.
They should be stored in an airtight tin or canister that is light-proof as well - at room temperature.
If you have too many to consume in a week: Put your beans in a ZIP-LOC freezer bag IN THE DEEP Freeze.
Even better: Double zip-loc bagged.
You will compromise flavor some, but freezing them in this way - they will keep "indefinitely"
The fridge (at between 33 and 39 degrees) is the ultimate bad environment for coffee -
