Do coffee bags go out of date?

Yes, coffee bags do go out of date. Typically, they will have a ‘best before’ or ‘use by’ date printed on the packaging.

All our coffee bags here at The Little Coffee Bag Co have their ‘best before’ date printed on the sachets and boxes. Most of our coffee has a life of over a year.
