You know how it is. Give things enough time and they may change. Over the years, that was "bad for you", then it become good (or at least "ok"). In time, that may or may not become bad again but now something else is the correct way.
20 some years ago I was told by some I considered experts in the coffee business that freezing roasted coffee beans was the best. In time, that changed as condensation could degrade beans so it became keeping your beans in an air tight container at steady room temperature and definitely in a container that does not allow light to penetrate. (This may still be the best way to store beans, even if you "chill" them prior to grinding/brewing...)
Now, some research suggests chilling coffee beans prior to grinding and brewing your coffee is the best.
"A recent study has coffee-lovers questioning everything they thought they knew about brewing a simple cup at home. The study, published in Scientific Reports and titled The Effect of Bean Origin and Temperature on Grinding Roasted Coffee, found that chilling coffee beans before grinding and brewing coffee results in a more flavorful cup." http://www.msn.com/en-us/foodanddrink/beverages/this-tip-from-scientists-will-make-you-question-everything-you-ever-knew-about-making-coffee/ar-AAh2Vdk?ocid=ansmsnfood11
If you like technical background to research such as this, here is an excerpt from and reference to a technical article on this:
"From an industrial perspective, the yield of extraction is paramount. Grinding colder coffee beans produces a more uniform particle distribution, with a decreased particle size. While the decreased particle size will tend to speed up extraction due to the larger surface area, the increased uniformity should minimise the amount of wasted bean, which is discarded without being extracted to completion. Whilst active cooling of either the coffee beans or burrs is energy consuming, the benefit of cold coffee grinding may offset this cost with more efficient extraction from the smaller particles."

Before you "chill" with a cup of coffee, perhaps it's time to chill the beans before brewing?
