I was at a cupping and someone asked one of the Q graders about freezing coffee. His reply was that once it starts to thaw and water comes into contact with the bean, the brewing process has started, hence freezing beans was a bad idea. Seems to make sense to me.

Most of us who freeze let the beans come to room temp before opening the vessel.  That way, the condensation is on the outside of the vessel, not the beans, thereby eliminating that problem.

Agreed. Let the beans stay sealed in the bag or jar until they are at room temp and they remain as dry as thy were before they were frozen.
