True coffee lovers know the heartbreak that stems from a stale cup of coffee. If you grind your beans in the same place you buy them, the eventual lackluster brew is inevitable. But according to Amazon shoppers, it doesn't have to be. In fact, more than 5,000 people say this $28 Coffee Gator canister keeps grounds tasting fresh for weeks.
The stainless steel canister is equipped with valves to release carbon dioxide emitted by the grounds, a natural process that ultimately dulls flavor. An airtight lid locks out oxygen for further freshness, and its 1.3-liter size offers enough space for weeks' worth of coffee. Plus, the container comes from the brand that brought you this life-changing insulated French press, so you can trust that it's a force to be reckoned with.

There's one other feature that makes the Coffee Gator canister stand out. On the lid, you'll find a handy calendar wheel for inputting your coffee's purchase date or expiration date, which can help to prevent wasted grounds. Just twist the month and day dials to the appropriate numbers to receive a reminder every time you give it a glance.
Customers are understandably stunned by the container's ability to preserve coffee's freshness. Some have gone as far as to call it a "definite must-buy" for anyone looking to upgrade their morning caffeine fix.
"This canister is one of those products you didn't know you needed 'til you owned it," one reviewer wrote. "Amazing that I had never realized how my coffee was losing all aroma (and a lot of flavor) after opening the bag. I now enjoy inhaling the fabulous aroma from the canister as I prepare my coffee each morning. Who doesn't LOVE the smell of coffee?!!"
Others are so impressed, their only regret is not ordering one earlier.
"I've never invested in a coffee container before, and this was definitely the right choice! I love coffee and I'm now mad at myself that I've been doing it and myself a disservice by not putting my grounds in one of these containers sooner," said another shopper. "I've only been using it a few weeks, but the coffee grounds have not lost ANY flavor, and are fresh as the day I bought them."
