Do Nespresso Pods Expire?
While an expiration date can be found on boxes of Nespresso pods, they won't expire if they are kept properly. The packaging has measures in place to prevent spoilage.
In addition to being processed in a totally controlled space, the capsules are airtight. As a result, the threat of oxidation, moisture, or harmful contaminants is reduced.
More of an issue of quality loss, Nespresso explains that pods can be used well after their expiration. However, the aromas and flavors can start to fade with time.
It's very unlikely that Nespresso pods will ever truly spoil, but if unusual aromas, extreme discoloration, or sour flavors present themselves earlier than a year, get rid of them.
