Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not My Mom's Fresh-O-Lator Canister As a lifelong Community fan, I was excited to order a Fresh-O-Lator canister for a friend's birthday. The first canister that arrived by UPS was dented. So customer service kindly and quickly sent me a second one. It was in better condition. However, the canister is not the quality it used to be many years ago when I bought one for my Mom. The latch feels loose. Also the canister is top heavy, which means if there is not enough coffee to weigh it down, the canister could easily flip over. Overall, while the product looks nice on my friend's kitchen counter, it's not up to Community's usual standards.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fresholater Good product. Too small at 16 oz. Bring back the 2lb. can.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep coffee so fresh! We have an espresso machine that grinds the beans just before they are used. Because we generally make coffee only on the weekends I wanted something to keep the beans as fresh as possible once a new bag got opened. I was a bit skeptical and unsure this would solve the problem so I waited until there was a good sale going. So happy I got it! It is larger than I anticipated however it does a fantastic job of keeping the beans fresh and it smells so good each time I open the lid.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's nice, but faulty I would love my canister if it were bigger. We buy the large bags of coffee and so we have to store the extra elsewhere. And the hinge pin keeps falling out. Seems like it's just not made to last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Fresh Fresh-O-Later Love this canister from Community Coffee. It's even better when actually full of their coffee I go reaching into each morning. Very attractive and durable, will last years (I hope). Worth the bucks, get one. I live in Florida, but when I dig into this canister in the morning, it brings back Louisiana each time. Thank you Community Coffee. JB/ Miami FL

Rated 4 out of 5 by from fresh-o-later This is my first time to visit the community site. I was not aware of the product, the " fresh-o-later". It surely sounds like a fabulous product that not only keeps your coffee fresh but has many other uses as well. Quality is something I am also hearing about it. It appears that the fresh-o-later will last for years. It goes with the old adage of "you get what you pay for". community says that some of their fresh-o-laters are made in china & some in other countries. I don't know which is which but I will venture to guess that the ones made in China tend to fall apart & don't last for years as the original ones did. Since Community Coffee is celebrating 100 years of producing excellent coffee & tea, it would be fantastic if Community would bring out an anniversary edition of the fresh-o-later in the LARGER, RED MODEL !!!!! Merely a suggestion but I think it is a good one. By the way, I love your coffee. My favorite is the coffee with chicory. Keep up the good work !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tried and True!! I have purchased several Fresh-o-lator canisters from Community Coffee over many years now, and have made them a staple in the homes of friends with whom I regularly visit. I love the fact that the airtight canisters keep the coffee as fresh and robust as the day I opened the bag. I couldn’t be more satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love that smell every morning! I bought one of these canisters about 6 months ago. Every day I love to open it as the coffee smells so fresh! It's the perfect size for me (I know many want a larger size) as one pound lasts several weeks. It also looks great next to my coffee maker. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Piece of History to Pass Down Me and my husband wanted this canister because our parents always had one growing up and we grew up drinking Community Coffee! Our 2 sons drank Community “Coffee Milk” growing up and now will ONLY drink Community “Big Boy” Coffee!! Community Coffee has been an important part of our Louisiana Heritage and we are proud to celebrate 100 years with them!!! We will definitely pass down our 100 year canister to our boys so they can raise their kids with Community Coffee!!! Bravo Community Coffee!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Bring back the bigger one My parents have had theirs for years, and I want to order one, but am hoping for the bigger size. Would prefer to have one that holds two bags.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Family Tradition I remember my parents always having a fresholator. I've been meaning to get one for a while. Brings back good memories of coffee with my mom and dad. At first the closure was stiff/difficult to close. One day a rivit popped out. I popped it back in. Now it works like a charm. Not the same craftmansh ip as my parents but still does a great job of keeping coffee fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Canister This is a nice looking, 'different' sort of canister... It really seems more like a heavy stainless steel than aluminum and it looks very nice sitting with my black coffee maker with stainless trim.... Don't let the picture fool you... This canister is tall like in the gift sets... It says it is 7"" tall and 6"" wide... It is 7"" tall and the lid is 6"" wide, but the lid overhangs the bottom... The canister is 5"" across... (The gift set pictures are more accurate) It will hold two 12 oz bags (with a little tapping down).... I had a little trouble with the latch not seeming to want to stay latched up tight... It did clamp shut and stay shut, but it just didn't seem to take much to turn it loose... After l saw how the clamp works, l could see l just needed to mash it closer to the side of the canister... Instead of the latch sticking out on an angle, the closed latch needs to be pretty much straight up and down... I just put my fingers on the top of the lid and the butt of my thumb on the latch and mashed it up tighter against the can... It looks straighter with the side now, like in the picture) Works great, snaps up tight now and acts like it wants to stay there... With that little adjustment, l am very happy with it... It is a good looking addition to my coffee bar and it will keep my coffee sealed away fresh...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh O Lator Canister I believe the Fresh O Lator Canister is a good product. My grandma that lived in Louisiana always had one. She always purchased community coffee. I had showed my mom the picture of the Fresh O Lator Canister when I was placing my order. We both recalled the one my grandma had. Mom said she wanted one. She has been pleased with the product. She knows that community coffee is the best and their product are the best as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Time-tested, I love these things. As a kid, from Texas, every summer I visited my grandparents in New Orleans. It was always an adventure, so many different things, foods...accents. One staple on those visits was the Fresh-O-Lator canisters in my grandparents' pantry. Just the vision of one makes me think of them and their inspiring surroundings. Today, we use one for our coffee and we use two in our guest house, also for coffee. I love these things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I have to say I'm jealous of those who have used one of the earlier generation larger versions, but not knowing any different myself, this one is great. It seals tightly, is very well made, and it looks nice, as well. It simply does well what it's made to do. I am thinking of giving a couple of these as gifts, and I would absolutely get another one myself if I ever had the need.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps the coffee fresh My recent purchase was for a gift, however I have had my own for a couple of years. It is great, the best at keeping the coffee fresh! Good size, holds a full pound of coffee. My only comment is that the latch loosens over time and I have had to bend it back into shape. I still use it and would buy another. It is the best coffee canister I’ve ever had.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it!!! This is perfect! It is just right to hold 1 lb of coffee. I have had the larger one for quite some time and love it too, but it is a little too big since it is just my husband and me at home. Thank you for bringing back the smaller Fresh-O-Later!!!! I only gave it 4 stars because I had a problem with the lid not latching tightly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So pleased! So this is so much bigger and better than I expected! I read the reviews but ordered one anyway and was delighted with both the size and the quality. Plus I got the birthday discount. Not sure what all the complaining is about, mine is perfect and going to give to the hubs for Easter along with his 'imported' Gold Brick Eggs!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Storage Bought this smaller version of the original Fresh O Lator. It looks just like its larger predecessor. One complaint: there is a sharp, unfinished edge on the bottom of the opening where the lid meets. That can be a problem if you happen to grab it the wrong way. (will try sanding or filing)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps my Community Coffee fresh everyday! I bought this online about a month ago and am using it to store my new favorite flavor, King Cake. It is large enough to keep up to 16oz. It is an airtight container with an easy release that has kept my coffee as fresh as if I had just opened the package!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FRESH O LATER I purchased the canister several months ago and it never completely sealed. Now the seal is completely non functioning. Is there anything I need to do in replacing it? If you have other canisters that work better I'd be more than happy to purchase. Thanks

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but too small Recommended if all you have is 1 lbs of coffee. I need one that holds 2 lbs bags. Good quality, Good value, I didn't eat the can, so I can't speak to the taste, yet I'm required to rate it. I guess it tastes like all the other cans I've never eaten.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bring back large Fresholater Great coffee & service, but was shocked, like others, to realize my new Fresholater was only half the size of the original. Have been given/ordered 4 in the past for friends and family. Would almost always prefer larger size - please bring it back!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3 Stars on the small one Have one of each. Quality of small one = not much. The latch has to be re-bent in order for it to hold shut. Wish you would bring back the large one. I need three more of them. I buy the 2 lb. bags and the small one will not hold it.
