I don't camp for precisely this reason.
Keurig &co are double failures - first, because they grind the coffee months before it will be drunk. You ought ideally to grind filter coffee no more than 20 minutes before you make your coffee — certainly after one week it is irretrievably stale — for espresso, taste begins to degrade after 90 seconds, and after a quarter hour you should throw it out and begin again. Pod coffee, like all preground coffee, will never exceed bare mediocrity, and that is if it began as the greatest coffee on planet Earth.
I would agree with that assessment.
