Coffee conundrum

Anyone buy some really fantastic local coffee in bean form, that you grind fresh every morning, suddenly brew with none of that soul lifting intensity that it did when you first opened the bag? That happened with a very expensive bag of coffee and I don't know why. We keep it sealed on the counter and use a plain old grinder. It is bourbon treated and now just tastes like regular coffee whereas before it had a robust flavor.

Is it the grinder? Storage? Humid climate? Any insight on how to solve this problem is welcome. I'm trying to figure out if the solution does not involve a $100 coffee grinder.
