Coffee pods and capsules FAQs

Do coffee pods fit all machines?

Different brands have different types of coffee pods and coffee capsules that are not compatible with all kinds of coffee machines. Pods are usually used with a particular coffee maker, but it is possible to use them in a regular drip coffee maker as well.

What is the difference between coffee capsules and pods?

The main difference between pods and capsules is that capsules can contain around 5 grams of coffee while pods contain 7 grams. This means that the coffee extracted from pods is more full-bodied. Additionally, pods are more sustainable, can be easily recycled, and have less of a negative environmental impact.

Do all pods work in Nespresso?

It is good to remember that all pods are designed differently. However, the simple answer is yes – most pods will work in your Nespresso machine.
