Following on @RobertCartaino: divide into batches of one week's worth of coffee and store in the freezer in small air tight containers.

Finally, before pouring the foamed milk, knock the pitcher on the counter a couple of times (presumably to remove the large bubbles) and swirl it around a bit (while the bottom remains firm on the counter).

comment Do vegetables ripen like fruit?
Belgian endive is an interesting case: "It is grown completely underground or indoors in the absence of sunlight in order to prevent the leaves from turning green and opening up (etiolation). The plant has to be kept just below the soil surface as it grows, only showing the very tip of the leaves. It is often sold wrapped in blue paper to protect it from light and so preserve its pale colour and delicate flavour."
