Espresso Pods - Another Option for Single Serve
The use of espresso pods is on the rise within the home, the office and even in restaurants. While these disks are gaining popularity among regular coffee drinkers and espresso aficionados alike, some still don't know what these popular pods are.
Espresso pods offer a fresh take on espresso brewing. It simplifies the brewing process so that anyone, even someone brand new to espresso brewing, can make their own cup with just the push of a button.
Espresso pods, also known as Easy Serving Espresso (ESE) pods, are individual pouches made of two fine layers of filter paper. Inside is a single serving or double serving of packed espresso with each serving of coffee measuring seven grams. They are typically 45 millimetres in diameter. These guidelines were established by The Consortium for the Development and the Protection of the E.S.E. Standard.
Creating a standard design for all espresso pods, regardless of brand, allows for convenience and flexibility when using various espresso pod brands with various espresso pod machines. No matter what the brand, all espresso pods are compatible with all non-capsule espresso machines. For best results however, it is recommended that a machine designed especially for ESE pods be used.
One should note that ESE pods may be used with any type of espresso machine, as long as it is not a capsule-based machine. To enjoy a cup of espresso made using ESE pods, all one has to do is follow these 3 steps:
- Insert the pod into the filter basket of an espresso machine or use a brewer designed specifically for ESE pods;
- Add water to the designated water reservoir; and
- Press the button to begin brewing.
There is no need to pull or pump the shot of espresso, no need to worry about bar pressure or tamping, and there is no need to worry about grinding the coffee beans correctly. All of these details are taken care of with espresso pods. In a few quick minutes, a tasty cup of espresso will be yours to enjoy, even if you have no previous training or espresso brewing experience.
