Coffee experience has been made much better through the revolutionized coffee pod products. Coffee pods are roasted ground coffee enclosed in a gauge-like circle-shaped package. The packaging serves to preserve the quality, flavor, and aroma of the coffee. Coffee pods are similar to how tea bags look, except in shape.
The main concept in the creation of coffee pods is the convenience it guarantees. Through preparing coffee using coffee pods, people can brew an instant coffee drink without a glitch and without compromising the quality of coffee. The standard size of a coffee pod is 44mm and weighs 6.8g to 7.0g. A coffee pod can size up, up to 62mm and can weigh as much as 9g, depending on the capacity size of a coffee machine, if opted to be used.
The first conceptualization of bringing the coffee pods to the public market was managed by the Illy Caffe in 1996. Douwe Egberts Senseo coffee pods can either be used by the traditional dipping into a hot water, infiltrating the ground coffee, or by placing the pod in a coffee maker. The latest coffee machine models already have adaptors to accommodate coffee pods. Leading coffee machine manufactures have developed a system called the ESE format. Look into this feature logo before purchasing a coffee machine. The ESE format assures you that a 44mm pod can be used in the machine. At present, the following are coffee machines that allow the use of coffee pods: Keurig, Senseo, Melitta, Bunn, Mr. Coffee Home Café, Cuisinart, Wolfgang Puck, Tully’s K-Cups, Timothy’s, and Tassimo.
But, Philips Senseo coffee pods are single-served pods and does not allow the adjusting of coffee taste. Some like their coffee a little stronger or creamier. But with coffee pods, each packet contains fixed concoction of coffee blends. Because of this wanting-to-adjust tendency, coffee pods manufacturers developed different flavors for the consumers to choose from. Some of the flavors available are French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Irish Cream, Cinnamon, Mocha Cinnamon, Blueberry, Brownie Toffee Crunch, Caramel Fudge, Mint, Swiss Chocolate Almond, Chocolate Raspberry, Kahlua Crème, and Decaffeinated.
Coffee pods are easy to use, guarantees fresh quality ground coffee blends, and no mess preparation. Plus, using a coffee pod saves you the cleaning time because you can just simply dispose the pod after use. Studies show that coffee pods can benefit plants and crops are fertilizers. So, since, coffee pods are widely distributed to leading supermarkets, a unique coffee experience is just within your reach.
