Pods, pads or capsules?
What should I use in my coffee machine?



Just as the title says, it isn't always so easy to find out what fits in your coffee machine.
This is a small attempt to clear up the jungle of the various systems on the market.
Common to all systems is that warm water goes through a compressor and then through the grind coffeebeans and out comes coffee.

E.S.E pods

The most common system is the so called E.S.E system (Easy Serving Espresso).
Between two filter papers is about 7 grams of ground coffee and using a special machine hot water is pushed through the pods and out comes delicious espresso.
