How to keep coffee pods fresh
Coffee pods are sealed hermetically to prevent moisture from entering the pod, as mentioned before. This means that as long as the seal is intact and the pod is not broken or slit, the coffee inside is safe for brewing and consumption. Mold and bacteria can grow in coffee grounds exposed to moisture, so it is best to discard any compromised pods.
The pods should also be stored in a cool and dry place away from humidity and direct sunlight. Even though refrigerators have controlled temperatures, storage of coffee in refrigerators is not recommended due to the presence of moisture should there be a seal failure or the pods are punctured.
During storage, it is also important for you to check the pods regularly to ensure the seals are intact and all broken pods should be discarded.
It is recommended to separate the coffee from the packaging when disposing of coffee pods and using the spent grounds in compost piles. Many manufacturers have begun making pods out of recyclable materials because of the added load on landfills and disposal systems. Remember to look for this feature when you buy your coffee pods!
Coffee pods do not go bad even after their sell-by dates. They may lose some of their flavors after the indicated dates but are not unsafe to consume. Remember to note which type of coffee pod your machine uses and to dispose of them responsibly, or use refillable pods for the freshest brews
