What are pod coffee machines?

Pod coffee machines are perfect are people living life in the fast lane. All you need to do is pop in a pod of your choice and you’ll have a great cup of coffee in a matter of moments.

How does a pod coffee machine work?

Pod machines let you skip grinding the coffee, boiling the kettle and getting the milk just right. All you have to do is pop in a pod, press go and wait for your perfect coffee. And don’t forget a mug!

Once you get things started, hot water passes through ground coffee in the pod, creating a delicious drink. You aren’t limited to one type of coffee either. There’s something for everyone and some models, like this Bosch Tassimo My Way, work with a range of cup sizes. So whether you want an emergency espresso or a luxurious latte, it’s completely effortless.
