I was slow to buy one because I thought they were costly enough and with both very good and some very poor review scores I wasn't sure it would be worth the risk. But... It was. I had to experiment a little but learned 2 things from reviews and from some trial runs. You need a fine grind coffee - I get a grind for a moka pot. Also you need to get the right quantity of coffee so the water can pass through but coffee will be strong enough. I like 2 pods per cup so I have just gone back to buy 3 more pods so I can use them at work and at home and not have to refill when hot. So I guess I am speaking with my wallet. Happy to buy 3 more based on using the product. No more capsule waste and I spend my money now on buying the best quality locally roasted and ground coffees. A real treat! Great product.
I love those capsules. I can put my favorite coffee in it, and the amount I desire. I don't feel guilty about buying capsules with packaging anymore. I bough six of them and the whole family uses them.
