Can you open coffee pods without a machine?
In order to brew K-Cup® pods (or any other type of coffee cups) without a machine, you’ll need a way to separate the individual components. The cutter will separate the foil top from the plastic pod, and you can pull out the paper filter that contains the coffee grounds.
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). But our expert taste testers agree that if you’re fussy about flavour, a manual espresso machine will almost always give you the best, barista-like results.

Is Lungo a double shot?
Usually, a shot of espresso is pulled using about 30mL of water for 18 to 30 seconds. On the other hand, a lungo uses double the amount of water. Because of the extra water, it can take up to a minute to pull. Once it’s in the glass, a lungo is roughly the size of a doppio, or double shot of espresso.
Can Nespresso capsules be used twice?
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.
Do all coffee pods fit all machines?
