Good article!

And timely as well. The DW & I were discussing the shelf life of various foods recently.

It's great to hear that cocoa has a long shelf life. It's an essential, if you know what I mean.

We are coffee drinkers, much prefer ground coffee, but we do keep a fair amount of freeze dried instant coffee in our stores. It's a viable "caffeine delivery device". :)

We're using canned coffee that is between 2-5 years old in our rotation and it tastes fine.

Do you Kellene, or anyone else, have any thoughts on the storage life of "ground" coffee beans?
I know many folks suggest storing, then roasting green coffee beans...but we haven't ventured into that realm yet.

Thanks to all.
