How Coffee Pod Machines Work

We talk to Russ at Lake City Coffee in Spokane Wa, and this was his expert opinion on coffee pod machines.

Coffee pods provide a simple and convenient way of making a fantastic cup of coffee quickly and with no mess or fuss. Personally, I use a Senseo Coffee Pod Machine and I’ve never had a moment’s trouble with it and the coffee taste fantastic. Just as if I had ground the beans and brewed it myself. So how do these machines work?

First things first, make sure your machine is plugged into the wall. These machines mostly run on mains power so flick that switch. Next, you’ll need to fill the chamber with fresh water. On the Senseo model, it just clicks off neatly at the back of the machine. Always run your water for at least a minute before filling as you don’t want any nasty stuff that’s been sitting in the pipes overnight for your fresh and tasty coffee. There are handy notches on the side of the plastic water chamber and you just fill it with exactly the amount of water you’ll need. This is another great feature of these machines – you never boil any more water than you need thus saving on energy bills.

Once filled with fresh water, snap the chamber back on then press the big red flashing button on the front of the machine (other models may differ slightly, but it’s generally the same set-up for all Coffee Pod Machines).

Now you must select which coffee pod you want. The Senseo comes with two small dishes like holders to place the pods in – a one pod holder and a two pod holder. Select one or two depending on the strength of coffee you want, or perhaps you are making two cups at the same time. The pod holders are placed at the top of the machine and then the lid snaps down on top of them.

You need to wait a minute or two for the water to heat, then once done you have a choice to make. By now, the water will have percolated through the pods at the top of the machine to make some rich dark coffee. Now you can select one cup or two cups, or you can even select the two cup option if you want to have a large mug of coffee.

The coffee made from these machines is full flavored, rich and frothy. The sheer variety of pods available on the market now is staggering, so you won’t be short of choice. Enjoy your coffee!

Make a Perfect Cup of Coffee Every Time with a Jura Coffee Maker

Coming from Switzerland, Jura is a well-known company that specialized in creating some of the finest coffee machines on the planet that are designed for home/small office use. Jura has been perfecting their craft over the course of many years so it is no surprise to anyone that they now have an international reputation that makes their coffee making machines sought after no matter what country in the world you are in!

There are a few reasons behind the company’s success, so here are some of them in no particular order:

Built Quality – Jura made machines such as the Jura F50 espresso are known for their excellent build quality that ensures that each part is built to the universally high standards of every other piece or component used in construction. Simply put, these machines are very unlikely to break down and they are robust enough to survive constant cleaning. Many of the Jura models clean themselves! Yeah, that is right, you will not have to clean one of these machines very often (if at all).

User interface – Jura machines tend to depend on simplicity when it comes to the user interface, with only a few buttons and dials present on the front of the machine. Each selection though using the buttons is clearly indicated and the machines tend to be a joy to use. One thing that Jura is particularly proud of is the rotary dial which makes coffee selection very easy indeed.

Brewing System – Jura machines have a built-in automatic brewing system known as IPBAS (Intelligent Pre Brew Aroma System) that makes sure that every cup of coffee produced is perfect every time. Other models of the coffee machine can be known to vary the strength and taste of their coffee with every cup poured but this patented system ensures that Jura machines are always constant in what the produce.

So put off for now looking for a new dishwasher or a new glass washer for now, and invest in a Jura coffee machine instead!
