coffee pod machine reusable pods
« on: December 31, 2019, 11:15:33 AM »
Anyone has experience with this? One can apparently buy stainless steel pods and fill it yourself, also heard of different sizes pods. Which machines are recommended, how good is the coffee?

Thanks

Neighbour uses the reuseable s/steel pods she got from Truth.  She has a Solo Comfort Lavazza.  The actual pods have a push-on lid

The trick, she says it getting the grind consistency correct.  Pre-ground coffee goes stale quickly, unless you can get a vacuum pack.  She grinds enough for 4 pods, not too fine but compresses it well into the pod with a tamper

Its nearly as good as the bean to cup machine I use

I used them for my Nespresso, as above, getting correct grind results in great results.
Cleaning is a pain and not worth the time for me personally so I stopped using them
