Gooooood moooorning www!!!!
Does anybody know how important the expiration date for a coffee disc is? Yeah, I know.. I should just google it. To which I did.
According to uncle “Google”:
“A coffee pod will remain fine to drink for years after the ‘best before’ date, which is there to indicate a period of optimal freshness. However, if you have coffee pods where the foil has dipped or collapsed into the capsule, then air may have gotten in and the pod may not be suitable for use…”
And according to: Coffee Perfectionist
“The ‘best before’ date is usually around 1 year from the date it was created. Coffee capsules are hermetically sealed to protect the coffee from light, oxygen and moisture. A coffee pod will remain fine to drink for years after the ‘best before’ date, which is there to indicate a period of optimal freshness.”
Seems like, it is still safe to use up the discs that are still left lying around in our office coffee nook. Since the lockdown, I have been the only one visiting the office regularly. Everybody else has been ordered to stay at home. I do drink coffee but not as often as the other colleagues. I normally switch from coffee to tea every now and then. Hence, 3 extra packs of coffe discs are still waiting to be used up. Problem is: lockdown has been extended. So, those discs are just waiting to be popped.
I am relying on the info I got that they will not go bad for another year. Hopefully this lockdown will not last that long anymore.
Yes, I wish that the pandemic is not my present, like everybody else. I live to hope that nothing much has changed. I live to hope that all those who suffered and perished from the pandemic are still with us in the present and did not feel any pain at all. I will stay hopeful and maintain that what I believe in is true, will stay true and so it shall be. Am I going insane? Can it be that, I am now a certified schizophreniac? I tell you, it may also be one of the effects of the virus.
These thoughts run around in circles in my head each and everyday for the last 9 months. I am still good… just like the expiring coffee discs, I will be okay. I will stay well and keep myself healthy… so as to keep others healthy as well.
Ya’all…. Take care every one!! Let’s hang in there. Vaccination has rolled out in the whole wide world. The virus will be defeated soon!
Have a happy weekend 🙂 🙂
