How many times can you use the Nespresso capsules?
All you do is use each pod twice! After using the Nespresso pod to make your cappuccino or espresso, simply put the pod back into the machine and have it make you another cup. The second cup tasted fine; the only difference is it was a bit weaker than the first cup, but it still tasted great.
How do you use Nespresso capsules without a machine?
Leave a bit of string hanging over your cup like you would a teabag. Boil some water, place the coffee bag in your mug and gently pour the hot water over it. Steep your coffee for at least 4 minutes for a standard brew.

You can make coffee from capsules without a coffee maker, as long as you have the following elements or ingredients prepared: You need the same amount of water that you usually use in your coffees. A microwave. As an alternative, you can use a kettle and have the water already hot beforehand, but it is not optimal.
Are capsule coffee machines worth it?
Pod or capsule coffee machines are usually cheaper than manual espresso machines (you can pick up a basic pod unit for less than $100 or splurge up to $699).

What’s the difference between Nespresso and Dolce Gusto?
The main difference between Dolce Gusto and Nespresso is: Dolce Gusto is more of a beverage center. You can make coffee, but you can also make other beverages. Nespresso is mostly an espresso / coffee maker.
Do you add milk to Nespresso coffee?

The single-serve Nespresso pods are not recycled properly and they end up in the landfills. The time a single aluminum coffee pod takes to completely breakdown in a landfill is 150-500 years. Each year billions of these aluminum capsules end up as waste in Europe, America, and Australia.
Is a Nespresso pod one shot?
One shot per capsule, yes. The amount will depend on the type of capsule. It’s either an espresso or lungo (long pour). With the espresso pods I usually get the shot, then drop the pod and do an additional shot of just water, for an Americano.
