What container do you like?

Thinking about pulling the trigger on the Oxo.

Seems this is a plastic box.
The best container to store foods are glass,
mainly that brown glass once used to beer bottle.

I use an OXO container similar to the one you linked.  It is smaller and just holds a little more than a pound of whole bean.

I usually buy my coffee at Costco and it comes in a three pound bag.  I use a FoodSaver vacuum system to seal smaller quantities of the large bag and that keeps the bean fresh until I need it.

I need to do some research and find better quality bean than the Starbuck's French Roast I have been buying.
