What are the main types of coffee pods

In an ideal world, you could use any coffee capsule in your home pod machine. This will give you access to hundreds of flavours, strengths and coffee styles on offer - at a range of prices. Sadly this is not the case, once you buy a machine you are limited to one type.

So how do you navigate the world of pods, pads and capsules? We are here to help.

Coffee pods and coffee capsules
If you think coffee capsules and coffee capsule pods are the same, then think again. But on the other hand, you also have a bit. The two terms are supposed to refer to different things, but in reality, they are often used interchangeably. Confused? We'll explain.

coffee pods
A coffee pod or pad is a prepackaged dose of paper coffee, like a roll bag on paper. These come in two types: soft and hard.

The soft style is used to make drip coffee (but not celebratory) in a range of non-pressurized machines. The hard type is used to make espresso in a pump machine and is also known as easy-serve espresso (E.S.E) pods.

coffee capsule
You're probably more familiar with coffee capsules. Depending on their brand, they are made of aluminum or plastic to hold coffee grounds and sometimes filters. Capsule machines produce espresso-type coffee, such as with Nespresso, or drip coffee, with brands such as keurig. You can hear these called coffee capsules, coffee pods, Nespresso pods/capsules or k-cups.

The problem comes, because many people call Nespresso capsules "pods." If you want to buy a coffee box or mat, you may have to confirm what you're after.
