FELLOW Atmos Vacuum Canister
Price: HK$288–338

The key to an impeccable cuppa is freshly roasted coffee beans. Sadly, the number one enemy of fresh coffee beans is the ubiquitous gas known as oxygen, which robs the aroma and moisture right out of your beans. Once your coffee beans are roasted you’re basically in a race against time and oxidation, because oxygen messes with the lipids in your coffee that results in an unwanted rancid flavour in your brew, and nobody likes their coffee dry and stale. This is when the Atmos vacuum storage units come in handy. Hidden inside its magic lid is a first-of-its-kind integrated vacuum pump and a powerful airtight seal to ensure oxygen is kept at bay from your coffee beans, or anything fresh you’d like to prevent oxidising, in that matter. The simple twist mechanism makes opening and closing extremely easy.
