Fellow Atmos Vacuum Canister
Hey, there. It's Ragan from Prima Coffee. And today, we're going to take a look at the Atmos Vacuum Canister from Fellow. These canisters were designed specifically to keep your coffee fresher for longer by reducing oxidation. They have an integrated vacuum pump inside of them that eliminates the need for outside parts like a vacuum sealer or hoses. Everything is already inside the canister. You can use these not only for your coffee, but to store any kind of treats like cereal or trail mix, or it could even become your new cookie jar. They do come in a variety of sizes and colors to match any kitchen setup or coffee setup. There is a matte black, a matte white, and a clear glass option. They also come in three different sizes that help with any kind of space you're working with.
The smallest is 0.4 liters. It stands slightly above 3 inches tall and has a diameter of 4.25 inches. It holds six ounces of coffee beans, which is not enough to put a whole bag of coffee beans in, but it's great for daily grind use. So you could put what you're going to use for the day or the week in here, and it's small enough to fit in a bag that you can bring it along. The next size is 0.7 liters. It stands at 5 inches tall and also has a diameter of 4.25 inches. And lastly, we have the biggest one that is 1.2 liters. It stands almost 7 inches tall and has a slightly larger diameter than the smaller two at 4.5 inches. This big one can hold 16 ounces of coffee, so you can just throw an entire bag of coffee beans in here. It would also be great to keep larger snacks in like cookies. Or if you have the stainless steel version, you could, you know, hide candy in here and nobody has to know what you've got in there. As I've said before, they do come in different color options. You've got the clear glass, which is great because you can see the contents inside of the canister. But you do run the risk of exposing your coffee beans to sunlight, so it's important to keep it stored in a shaded area or inside the cabinet. Another great thing about glass is the ability to write on it. So you can use a chalk pen or a dry erase marker to label what's inside of it. So if you're working with different varieties of coffee beans, you could label, "This is my Guatemalan, and this is my Ethiopian," and just grab open and not have to think twice about picking up the wrong canisters. The other options are the matte black and the matte white, which are made of stainless steel. And this is great because it provides added protection from sunlight. And sunlight can contribute greatly to deplenishing the beans of their flavor.
What makes these canisters so unique is their vacuum-seal technology. Getting airtight protection is easier than ever because of the integrated vacuum pump. To remove the air, all you have to do is twist the lid back and forth. And by doing this, the intake valve is actually pulling the air out of the canister. Depending on what size you're using, it takes between 7 and 15 seconds, which is relatively quick. Once all the air is out, the vacuum lock indicator will signal that you're good to go. And that is the small circle to the left of the larger circle in the center. And when all the air's out, it drops down and it reveals a green ring. Now, getting the air out of this when you're ready to get whatever contents are in the canister out, all you have to do is press the center button. And you can actually hear the air being removed from the canister. Sounds a lot like a spaceship door opening or Darth Vader breathing. A few parting notes on how to care for your Atmos canister. First off, they are not dishwasher safe. And, Fellow also recommends that you do not place them under running water or completely submerge them in water because it will upset the integrated vacuum pump. If you feel like it's time to clean them, just use a non-abrasive damp rag and mild soap and wipe down the lid and inside the canister. Also, don't store ground coffee in here or any kind of powdery substance because it will clog the intake valve. The Atmos canisters will bring additional freshness and organization to your coffee setup. Their airtight design works to keep oxygen away from your coffee beans, and the stainless steel option provides additional protection from the sunlight. They'll make a beautiful addition to any kitchen countertop and will bring additional ease and simplicity to your storage setup.
