Abount degassing coffee bags

Roasted coffee beans emit a lot of carbon dioxide. If you put it in a very common sealable bag and seal it, the bag will be filled with carbon dioxide, which will accelerate the deterioration of the coffee beans and cause the bag to burst. The bags made for coffee release gas, so it prevents breaking and can pack freshly brewed beans quickly. Also, the gas coming from the coffee is not filled in the bag so that it prevents deterioration and keeps the freshness of beans.
