What is a FlavorLock™ bag?

It's our special bag with a one-way valve that allows the carbon dioxide released by freshly roasted coffee beans to escape a sealed coffee bag without allowing flavor-robbing oxygen to get in.

All Starbucks coffee sold in half-pound and one-pound bags is sealed in our airtight FlavorLock™ bags within two hours of roasting so that it stays fresh until you’re ready to use it.
