CJ: Understood. And while i am far from a coffee snob, being old and dried out is one of my complaints about everything sold at Costco. The Super Crema does come stamped with a roasted on and use by date. The bag I'm using right now says roasted on Nov. 5, 2019 and use by April 5, 2021, so they think it lasts 18 months. It tastes great right now.
