Coffee with Reusable Pods
Pods are handy – no doubt about it, and pod machines super-convenient, but there is a lot of talk about their impact on the environment – the combination of plastic and aluminium is reckoned to take up to 500 years to break down in landfill whilst the grounds, which can be a good fertilizer, are wasted in their pod coffin.
A box of 12 Espresso Pods from a well-known brand will set you back around £4 – each pod with 5.5 grams of espresso grind giving you a decent cup of coffee for around 33 pence.
House of Coffee Ernesto Espresso, or Java Mocha in Espresso grind combined with a reusable pod will give you a far superior cup for around 10 pence, and your grounds can be used in your composting.
Now, given the times we are in that has to be a good choice – surely?
Pods are available for both Nespresso™, Tassimo and Dolce Gusto™ machines – the principle is the same, but we found that the stainless steel capsules perform best over time.
Reusable Pods are available through Amazon, eBay and many other web stores.
