Capsules or pods?
To enjoy a good coffee, it is essential to have certain things. Nowadays, everything starts with the coffee maker, the choice of which greatly determines the quality of the coffee you will be given to savour. However, in a coffee maker, you need either capsules or pods. Without these, no drinks. So let’s go together to discover capsules and pods.
Capsules, pods, the nuance!
Today, when you want to prepare coffee, it is practically impossible to do without capsules or pods. However, if they both serve to do the same thing to the point of causing confusion, it must still be said that they are different in a few points. Let’s look at the question on a case by case basis:
The capsules: By capsules, we mean a coffee maker accessory in which the coffee is enclosed in an envelope made of aluminium. There are very few brands of capsules, Nespresso having almost the entire monopoly.
Pods: With regard to pods, they designate a coffee maker accessory containing coffee. The latter is more or less ground and wrapped in paper strongly similar to a filter. It is possible to count two types of pods. On the one hand, there are Senseo type pods which are soft, and ESE pods which are compact. Finally, note that unlike capsules, there are enough brands of pods.
This is the gist of what we can say about the nuance between these two accessories. Let us now turn to other aspects of the question.
Capsules, pods, what flavours?
The capsules and pods play a major role in the quality of coffee prepared with a coffee maker. But is the result the same depending on whether one invariably uses a capsule or a pod? Well no, because one of these accessories produces better drinks than the other. These are capsules that give particularly tasty drinks.
Capsules, pods, what price?
Obviously, capsules and pods are not free. Their acquisition has a cost. That said, when you look at the market, you realize that it is the capsules that cost the most. This may be related to the quality of the drinks obtained by using the capsules.
Capsules, pods, what impact on the environment?
Now you know enough about capsules and pods. So there is no doubt that you will be able to make the best choices to enjoy your coffee as it should be. Nevertheless, a question remains. Indeed, given the way they are made up, we have the right to wonder what could be the impact of either product on the environment. And once again, it is the capsules that hold the attention because they are not ecological because of their packaging. But anyway, it’s still worth forgetting these details for a delicious coffee, isn’t it?
