Will the quart sized Mason Jar hold a pound of roasted coffee?  How much will the pint jar hold?  I also plan to get these lids.

The quart size Mason jar is too small for 1lb of beans.  I use the quart jar too for storing whole beans and use my Food Saver with the Mason jar adapter to remove the air.  You're looking at about 10oz of beans to fill a quart jar, so I use two jars for 1lb and split the amounts equally between the jars.

I usually roast a pound of green so I probably wind up with 8/10 pound.  I can fit that into a quart jar plus a half pint jelly jar.  For a full pound, I'd probably just use 2 quart jars.

Before I broke them, I used to use those hinged ceramic canisters with gaskets.  The larger ones will accommodate a full pound easily.

Hi Jim...
One reason I like quart jars is that the measuring spoon (we measure by the dose) reaches the bottom of it when beans are low. It is easier to get beans out of than the valved bags, and we go through beans fast enough that they rarely pass prime.

I don't fret too much about how I store my beans either.  I usually roast just enough to get me through a week.  Any sort of jar is good enough for a week.  I prefer to limit exposure to air as much as possible but there I haven't noticed any significant staling in beans less than a week old.
