Those purchased in-store are usually way out of date compared to those shipped fro Keurig.com or GreenMountain's site. Another culprit is buying too many boxes at a time. Also, the machines can be erratic (especially those of other brands licensed by Keurig) when it comes to water dosage and temperature. Often the factory default temp is set too low. The Extra Bold varieties taste bitter and burnt when brewed at the 7-8 oz setting and require the 9-10 oz (again, the size diff. varies by brand) setting, whereas the regular varieties should be brewed on the 7-8 oz setting.

I refuse to get a Keurig because it doesn't come in 32-ounce doses.
