Mercifully, the days are long gone when switching to coffee capsules meant switching to the ‘dark side’ of brewing coffee at home. Today’s 100% recyclable and Nespresso pods make for a brewing method that’s just as sustainable and environmentally conscious as any other.
But there’s one sticking point to the whole Nespresso capsules vs conventional brewing debate that remains. The elephant in the room in question is, of course, the price.
Cup for cup, there’s no disputing the fact that coffee pods are a slightly more expensive approach to DIY coffee making. Nevertheless, this hasn’t stopped coffee pods becoming an all-out phenomenon among coffee lovers worldwide.
But what is the primary point of appeal with Nespresso pods and quality coffee capsules in general? If you could technically save money with conventional beans or grounds, what are the advantages of coffee pods?
They Offer Single-Cup Portions
For one thing, brewing with Nespresso capsules means being able to brew a perfect single-cup portion at the touch of a button. If you only need to make 1 cup of coffee at any given moment, pods can be far more convenient than powering up and using a more conventional machine.
In addition, the exact weights, measurements and water ratios required to brew this individual cup of coffee are sorted on your behalf. The machine also ensures the water is heated to the perfect temperature, so you are guaranteed an excellent result. Arguably the fastest, easiest and most precise way to brew a single-cup portion of coffee.
They Offer Both Variety and Consistency
From one cup to the next, you are guaranteed flawless consistency with Nespresso pods. As everything is perfectly measured and dosed on your behalf, every single cup you brew is as good as the next or the last.
However, there’s also limitless scope for a variety and experimentation. There’s an extensive range of gourmet Nespresso capsules currently available, packed with the most extraordinary (and often exclusive) coffees from the world’s most prestigious producers. Whenever you’re feeling adventurous, Nespresso pods can take you on the journey of a lifetime through a whole world of incredible artisan coffees.
They Deliver Instant Gratification
Last up, living a busy lifestyle often leaves little to no time for anything unnecessarily complicated or time consuming. Coffee brewing paraphernalia varies from the sublime to the downright ridiculous – in some cases unnecessarily convoluted, simply for the sake of it.
At the opposite end of the scale, you have Nespresso pods and gourmet coffee capsules – instant gratification at the touch of a button. If you simply do not have the time nor the inclination to play with the more complex hardware on the market, there’s no quicker or easier way of brewing a seriously enjoyable cup of coffee.
