|wjsisson||This is marked as expired, but I still see it available fyi.|

I was initially a little hesitant to jump on this due to the weird form factor that the pods came in. I was genuinely worried that I would have a post-brewing cleanup job to get all of the escaped coffee grounds out of my brewer. But I went ahead and gave it a shot - I got the 80ct French Roast becuase, well frankly, hearing that this brand tended to brew on the "lighter" side I wanted to shift everything up towards the dark end to compensate.
Like many others, my shipment arrived nearly immediately. I was happy to see that the pods were packed in bags of eight to limit the exposure of the other pods to air and to retain freshness as long as possible. I was also pleased to find a plastic resealable container in the shipment box - a nice touch.
There was no mess at all. In spite of being different they were completely self-contained throughout the brewing process. And the flavor was pretty darned good as well.
I do NOT have a Costco anywhere near me, so getting 80x of these for $29 shipped is a good deal for me. Thanks op! +1 and repped!

Impressive. Ordered Wednesday around noon and it was at my doorstep at Friday around noon.
On top of that it's pretty decent coffee (Breakfast Blend)
Much better than the Costco Kirkland Pacific Bold which had a bitter aftertaste.
Thanks again OP.

My local grocery store had these on sale for $6 for a pack of 12. I went ahead and got that to see if I liked them before I get the big 80 pack. This is some pretty good coffee.
The Fog Chaser is good too. I've had a cup of it when I first wake the past couple of days, and it really gets you awake. Add a little fancy creamer and it taste like a coffee you'd pay a few bucks for on your way to work. Saving $10 a week on coffee is about $500 more in your pocket a year.

|ethercore||Yeah - $25 at my Costco. I can't consider this a slick deal...|

|jmart14||Would appreciate hearing how long they stay fresh without a plastic cup. I can't do this deal now, as I dithered through two specials at Staples and finally just bought an assortment of GM 24-packs with a 20 off 60 breakroom coupon that was about to expire (thanks to SDer who posted link to 24pks online). Last time I got .34/cup it was Wolfgang Puck and they all had expiration dates in less than 6 weeks, so there always seems to be a tradeoff with price and freshness date if you buy in large quantities like this, very frustrating.|

K-Cups can be re-used, if someone wanted to be green, for real.
You simply take the used K-Cup, peel off the foil seal. Empty the contents, rinse it out. Fill it up with your choice of coffee and place K-Cap on it to use in the machine.
However, being green requires effort, and people like to say that they are green, but don't want to make an effort actually being green, ala buying a Prius instead of a bicycle.

It wasn't particularly green for me to have to throw out the cups when they went stale in a week though.
