Coffee Buying Guide - Pod Coffee

Coffee Pod Machines

For those who strive for good quality coffee but don’t want the mess or hassle, a coffee pod machine is the perfect solution. Pod machines use vacuum sealed pods filled with delicious fresh coffee, with one pod making one cup. As well as a range of popular coffee drinks such as espresso, americano and cappuccino, coffee pods or capsules come in an array of other flavours such as hot chocolate, chai latte and iced tea. Most pod machines use barcode readers to automatically identify your beverage, selecting the best settings for the drink.

You’ll find our pod machines in a selection of playful designs and colours that will look great in your home. With a pod machine you can enjoy your favourite coffee drink at the touch of a button and with automatic rinsing and descaling, you won’t even have to worry about cleaning up.

Why choose a pod machine?

  • Quick, easy and mess-free - ideal for the first-time coffee machine user.
  • Huge variety of pods on offer including iced tea and hot chocolate.
  • Compact and colourful - available in a range of designs to match your kitchen.

  • Key Features

    Pod machines have removable water tanks for easy filling.

    A pod containing enough coffee for one cup is placed inside the machine and at the flick of a switch, your coffee is made in seconds.

    The Dolce Gusto range hosts easy-to-use features for you to enjoy coffee-shop-quality at home. Pods are available in a variety of roast and ground coffees, teas and luxurious hot chocolates.

    With Dolce Gusto machines you start the brewing process by moving a lever to start the water flow. Push the lever back to turn it off when you are happy with the amount of coffee brewed. All you have to do is pop a pod in, pour the water and hey presto - no mess and no fuss.

    Every Dolce Gusto has a fast thermoblock system. This means water is forced through a compact set of heated stainless steel tubes; it absorbs the heat from the metal and instantly reaches optimal temperature.

    When you buy a Nespresso machine you automatically become a member of the exclusive Nespresso Club - giving you access to unique coffee blends in sealed capsules.

    Nespresso capsules keep that fresh coffee aroma and flavour locked in for up to a year and use sustainably sourced coffee beans. Nespresso capsules are only available via the Nespresso Club so customers who buy a machine are part of a true connoisseur experience. The Club offers exclusive benefits like Limited Edition Blends and expert knowledge and advice from Nespresso Coffee Specialists.

    All Nespresso machines are equipped with a special system that uses a 19-bar pressure pump - more than most coffee shops use - to guarantee a perfect espresso. The unique Nespresso capsule shape and this pressure ensure water flows evenly through the ground coffee at the perfect temperature and time to give you a full-bodied espresso and a smooth crema.

    Tassimo machines work exclusively with Tassimo Discs (T DISCS) that have barcodes printed on the front. When the T DISC is inserted, the machine reads the unique barcode which tells it the size, brewing time and perfect temperature needed to make the drink. Brewing happens inside the T DISCS and flows directly from it into the cup at the touch of a button.

    Not only do Tassimo offer a wide range of freshly brewed coffees from popular brands including Kenco and Costa, they also have discs designed by other brands including Twinings and Cadbury. With such a big range of drink types and flavours, a Tassimo will make any hot beverage you like.
