Conserving and Storing
There is no point to store instant coffee in the refrigerator. If you bought it in a vac-bag, then it's wise to pour the coffee-grains into a fast tightening jar. If you bought it in a screw-top glass or tin, these are usually air-tight. So you are well advised to screw it tightly close after taking portions from the jar. Also make sure to take portions with a clean, dry spoon. Instant coffee grains only suffer from high humidity; it may make the grains stick together into a messy lump.
