Coffee pod machines are the simplest way to enjoy coffee with no fuss! But are all coffee pod machines created equal? The answer unfortunately is a resounding no.
Ensuring a quality cup of coffee from a capsule coffee maker can be quite difficult as most have no customization settings and simply push hot water through the capsule, which can lead to questionable results.
We've carefully selected our pod coffee makers that we found deliver a higher quality brew than your standard pod coffee machine. Say goodbye to your old coffee pod machine and hello to a world of more flavoursome coffee.
How A Coffee Pod Machine Works
A coffee pod machine is a coffee maker that brews coffee from coffee pods. Coffee pods are single-use filters that contain pre-measured amounts of coffee grounds.
A coffee pod machine works by simply insert a coffee pod into the machine and press the brew button. The machine then punctures the coffee pod and uses hot water to brew the coffee. Most coffee pod machines also have a built-in milk frother, so you can make lattes and cappuccinos with the push of a button.
How Pod Coffee Tastes
Coffee pods fit into a special brewing chamber in your coffee machine and brew a single cup of coffee at a time. Pod coffee tastes good usually, but it can be hit or miss depending on the brand and type of coffee you choose.
The Best Coffee Pod Machines
The best pod coffee machine is determined by your demands and expectations, as well as your budget. A high-end capsule coffee maker may be able to produce cafe-level coffee and offer some manual control over the brewing process.
Are Capsule Coffee Machines Worth It?
Capsule coffee machines are very popular, but they're not for everyone. Capsules are more expensive than ground coffee, so if you're on a budget, a filter coffee machine may be a better option.
Capsule coffee machines are worth it if you're looking for convenience and don't mind spending a bit more money. We've hand-picked our pod coffee makers to ensure that they brew a higher quality cup than the average pod coffee machine.
