No, our coffee does not have an expiration date - it will never be unsafe to consume. Over time (1 month - 3 months) it will begin to dry out and lose it’s oils. This will result in loss of flavor and body.

The only item we handle in our facility is coffee. We are free of cow's milk, eggs, tree nuts, peanuts, shellfish, fish, soy, and wheat.
