Coffee refrigerated

Coffee beans in an airtight container kept in the freezer last much longer in my experience. I use them direct from freezer to grinder. There is no apparent reduction in quality over a week, in contrast to deterioration when kept in an airtight container not in the freezer. Buying ground coffee is never a good practice regardless of how it is kept because the greatly increased surface area that air can act on causes it to deteriorate more quickly.
