I was pleasantly surprised when I received my Vault. It is just as good if not better than the one I purchased 3 years ago at Sur La Table. It has a great seal, quality constructed and can sit on my counter without looking conspicuous. Most importantly it allows me to have open a few different bags of coffee beans to switch days of coffee / espresso. It keeps the beans nice and fresh which as any Coffee lover knows, is essential. I packed it with Jingle Bell Java and well - Mystic Monk does not disappoint. Love my purchase and this seller.
After keeping my coffee in the original bags, I had a candy corn painted glass jar with sealed lid as part of my Fall decorations that had nothing in it. I put the rest of a bag of ground coffee in it and was so pleased with the convenience. I decided to look for an "all year" one, when I came upon the Monks vault. It was more than I would have normally paid, but being that the money goes to the Monks, I was willing to get one. It is stupendous! The vacuum pack is so easy to use and I know that it produces a good seal. I may think about another purchase of a vault in the future.
This was one of the items I purchased for my daughter-in-law's birthday gift. She loved it and is now planning to order another one. I plan on buying one for myself too!
This is my 2nd vault. It keeps the flavor & freshness of the coffee for weeks because of the vacuum seal. I will probably order some for gifts.
I must not have read the description carefully because when the monk vault arrived I was surprised and thrilled to realize that it is vacuum storage; you can hear the air whoosh out when pushing the seal down. REALLY cool. Looking forward to keeping the coffee fresher than ever!
