They tell you that coffee is stale only 30 days after roasting. They also say that pre-ground coffee can’t retain flavor over time. Let’s find out if that’s true! Over a year ago, our friends at The Good Cup Coffee Company sent us a package that included a number of nitrogen flushed drip bags which had an expiry date on it with an unbelievable shelf life: one year. We took a drip bag and put it in the back of a cupboard with the simple agenda of brewing and tasting the coffee one month past the expiry date on the label. To do so, we’ll be making a few adjustments to brewing technique and recipe in order to give the coffee its best shot at succeeding.

Now, it’s hard to know what life will be like or where exactly you’ll be in 13 months (especially lately!) And so this pre-set date catches DailyDrinkMag.com EIC, Kayo Cosio while on the road in a provincial project. From his room in the B&B, Kayo brews the expired coffee and tastes it to see if it’s still any good.
