A new study claims that keeping coffee beans cold can cause a more enjoyable drinking experience.

Scientific Reports published the study titled The Effect of Bean Origin and Temperature on Grinding Roasted Coffee. Scientists  from the University of Bath in the UK found that “cooling of coffee beans significantly decreases the rate of mass loss through volatile sublimation/evaporation. This, coffee that is ground up and brewed cold could potentially demonstrate increased aroma and or flavor in the eventual brewed cup.”

Chilling pre-ground coffee beans would have the same effect.

The study goes into great detail explaining the scientific processes that you can read here, but the true take-away for coffee fans is that you should be keeping your beans in the fridge for best flavor and more enjoyable mornings.
