    We are vacuum packing the ground coffee to retain its freshness. But Im having problem
    with loose-packing after storing it . Is 24 to 48 hours de-gassing process enough to get rid of it ? Hope you can enlighten me on this matter.

    Thank you,

      The question is are you grinding? Ground coffee is degassed in 12-24 hours. If you are doing whole beans they will degas for a week. That is why almost all vacuum packed coffee is pre-ground
