How long do K-cups last?
K-cups can last a year beyond the date printed on each cup. These products do not actually go bad for a very long time. The shelf life of K-cups is influenced mainly by the best by date and your taste buds.
K-cups are individually sealed pods of ground coffee, tea, hot chocolate or apple cider. Each K-cup is sealed and impermeable to moisture, oxygen and light after being nitrogen-flushed to ensure its freshness. Because of this, they actually stay fresher longer than regular size packages which are constantly exposed to air and other contaminants once the package is opened.
They are so well packaged that it makes you wonder if K-cups go bad.
The "best by date" is simply the last day a manufacturer will vouch for their optimal quality and flavour, not their safety. It is a guideline for optimal freshness recommended by the Roaster, it's not an expiration date.
Always remember to practice food safety and enjoy your drinks.
