The oxygen in air causes coffee to stale. Staling coffee changes flavor, and smell becoming less attractive to the consumer. It never becomes harmful to the consumer. The natural Carbon Dioxide (CO2) developed in coffee during roasting creates a barrier around the bean particles when fresh ground, and Nitrogen (N) introduced to the packaging of whole beans helps protect them in the same way.
Gillies valve packaging will keep our coffee fresh during transit to you, and provide limited fresh life both in-store, and on the kitchen counter to provide fresh brewed beverages for up to six weeks provided the package has not been compromised. Large bulk packages as FDA lined 20 LB corrugated of whole beans will maintain freshness for up to two weeks. 20 LB Bulk corrugated ground coffee shelf life is up to one week.
There are no GMO’s in Gillies Coffee that we know of. The National Coffee Association (NCA) is not aware of any GMO coffee in the marketplace. The only additives that we put in some of our blends are flavorings. Our flavorings supplier confirms that there are no GMO components in their ingredient pool.
For an added layer of security buy Certified Organic coffee. These are verified by an independent third-party certifying agency to be GMO free. You will find our Organic coffees here

Kosher food certification is big business, as the market for Kosher food is very strong throughout the world. Though the term "Kosher" applies specifically to Jewish dietary laws, other religious and secular groups have a dietary regimen much akin to that of Judaism. Kosher products appeal to the Islamic world, vegetarians, Seventh Day Adventists, and others, who often look for a Kosher symbol on the foods they purchase. Many savvy retailers are aware of the added value that Kosher Certification brings to the goods they sell, and choose the goods they offer for sale in part because they bear a strong Kosher Certification.
STAR-K Kosher Certification https://www.star-k.org is a leader in the international world of kosher certification providing strict Orthodox kosher supervision for more than a half-century.
Gillies Coffee Company has been Certified Kosher by STAR-K for decades. All our coffee products are Star-K Kosher for use throughout the year. Our Regular and Decaffeinated coffees are Certified Kosher For Passover each year.
