March 4, 2005, Newsletter Issue #42: What is a Coffee Pod?

Tip of the Week


A coffee pod is a single serving of ground coffee, pressed and packaged in a filter that encloses the coffee completely. They are similar to the pouches of coffee you find in hotel rooms, but not quite.

The advantages of using a pod instead of loose, ground coffee? No measuring, no spilling, no messy grounds and no waste. So if you`re busy and want to make a single cup of coffee and run...they are wonderful. Just enough coffee for one cup or mug, and no cleaning up afterwards.

But there is one catch. If you want to get a good cup of coffee from these new pods, you need to buy a special pod coffee maker. Using one of these pods in you ordinary drip coffee maker will give you very disappointing results.
