The number one enemy of coffee is Oxygen. Once coffee bean is exposed to air, its flavor and aroma deteriorates rapidly. Ground coffee loses flavor and aroma at a much faster rate due to its larger surface area. In order to minimize this, the Vacuvin Vacuum Pump extracts the air from the Vacuvin Coffee Saver, thus creating a vacuum. This preserves the coffee flavor and aroma. The dark color of the container further protects the coffee from the harmful effects of light.
The Vacuvin coffee storage container can also be used to store any 'air sensitive' food such as cereals, biscuits, etc.

Does its job in keeping the storage air tight and air free to keep your coffee beans fresh. Good quality build.

Very satisfied with the product. Though the air did not let out by pressing the middle of the rubber cap as per manual, but as a workaround I just removed the whole rubber to let air out.
Pump out about 10 times, and it's airtight :)
