To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
144 is not a huge amount of coffee pods, but a lot for one person. When I order Senseo pads the "use before" date is usually 4-8 months out. Not this time, just three months. Ordered in January, with a "use before" April date. If you are planning to share the coffee stash and the drink-within-three-months timeframe is good for you, this should be just fine.
