How Long Do Coffee and Tea Last?

How long do coffee and tea last? Coffee and tea are beverages that can be served hot or cold and provide the body with nourishment and hydration, replacing many of the fluids that we loose each day. Most of these drinks contain caffeine, but they also come de-caffinated varieties. Both coffee and tea are available in K-cup versions for use in the Keurig coffee machines, as does hot chocolate. Coffee, tea and K-cups are great to drink when they are freshly brewed but are also refreshing when chilled. However, they only stay safe to drink for a certain period of time once prepared. Find out more about each of these drinks including the proper storage methods to keep them at their freshest quality for as long as possible.
