Machine for expresso discs

Recommended Posts

I was going to buy a new expresso machine that grinds the beans for each cup until, when travelling, I came across a machine that uses shiny "flying saucer" shaped discs for each cup, and I was impressed by both the range of coffees in these discs and the quality of the expresso coffee they produce (unlike Nespresso, which tastes to me like whipped-up instant coffee, even though I know it's not). However, stupidly, I forgot to take note of the brand, I cannot even remember the country I had this experience in, and have been unable to find such a system on the Internet. It's not Tassimo (although I have not tried that brand, so I'm not discounting it as a potential purchase) and I thought that if anyone could recognise the system I am describing, it would be a member of a forum such as this. Can anybody help? :read:

Hi Tom


You may be referring to Coffee Pods

Check out The Coffee Pod for more details


Philips produce the Senseo machine which takes these, and some ESE pods can be used in portafilters with an adaptor.


Do these look familiar?

Thanks for trying to help Glenn, but those pods are not airtight and are covered in a gauze that makes them look more like tea-bags than the shiny, coloured, totally airtight disks in the expresso system I saw. Any other suggestioons?
