Does coffee in a sealed can go bad?

Hi

I have several cans of coffee. I've had them for years. Gosh, maybe 10 or more.

Do sealed cans of coffee go bad? (I'm not a coffee drinker)

There was one open full can but I tossed it out. I don't know if coffee gets
bugs.

Unopened shelf life recommendation is 24 months.

From Here. http://www.a1usa.net/gary/expire.html

Is it ground or whole bean?

I don't think it would go "bad" but it's probably not terribly fresh. If you're not a coffee fanatic, it may not bother you. open one up and try it! :wave:

Truthfully- put in in your houseplants

If it goes PSSSST when you open it, I am
betting it is drinkable.
Heck, I would brew at least one pot per can
just to check, but I am a coffeeholic.

No coffee for me. I do not like it. I love the smell but not the taste.

I picked it up years ago just in case I had company who wanted coffee.
Heck I don't even know how many scoops to put in a pot. :o

Now I just keep a jar of instant around. I can boil water. :roflmao:

So MGC, what does it do for plants?

Caffeine helps them grow:roflmao: . I just put my grounds in some. Not a lot Maybe a cup or so for a mid-size plant and then add some each week or so.

Actually it's not caffeine, but the grounds affect the acidity of the soil. And good organic matter. But the caffeine is supposed to keep away slugs & snails.

Let me start perking that coffee.

But it stunts our growth, that's why I was :roflmao:

I know a place that the receptionist pours what's left of her diet cokes and coffee into the plant behind her desk and that thing is beautiful(drool). I've threatened to sneak it out

The slugs crawl through it, and it kills them. Oh, darn
