How To Save On Coffee Pods Without Sacrificing Quality

Food & Cooking Blog

Although coffee pods are convenient, they are not typically a cheap way to enjoy your coffee. And in your efforts to save on coffee pods, it's easy to end up brewing a weak or undesirable cup. You don't want to buy expired pods or ones made with low-end, flavorless coffee. Do you really have to choose between quality and affordability when it comes to coffee pods? Not necessarily. You just have to be smart about how you save. Here are some ways to save on coffee pods without sacrificing the quality of your cup.

Buy a big pack, but check the expiration date and quantity first

You can often save money by buying a larger package of coffee pods. However, you do need to make sure that the pods won't expire before you get to use all of them. So check the date and count carefully. If there are 100 coffee pods in the box and you drink one a day, then make sure the expiration date is at least 100 days away. The same rule applies if you find a good sale on smaller boxes of coffee pods. Stock up, but only to the extent that will allow you to use the coffee before the expiration date.

Store your coffee properly

When you do stock up on coffee pods, you then need to make sure they are stored properly so they do not go stale or spoil. Store coffee in a cool, dry place. Do not keep it in a damp basement, as this may cause the pods to start growing mold. You can keep your coffee pods in a fridge or freezer if you have space. Many people believe that storing coffee in a freezer makes it stay fresh longer. 

Taste the coffee before you buy a ton of the pods

If you buy 100 coffee pods on sale but then realize you don't like the coffee inside of them, then a lot of them will probably go to waste. So when possible, buy a small box of a certain brand or style and give them a try before investing in a larger box or larger quantities. 

If you buy enough to last until the expiration date, store your coffee properly, and try before you buy, coffee pods can be more affordable than you might think. Once you find an affordable, delicious brand that you enjoy, stick with it!
