Everybody knows that making the best cup of coffee or espresso in the morning can be a laborious task. Messing with filters, grinding and measuring coffee beans, heating water, getting the right amount of cream and sugar… and if you’re running a little behind, you’re forced to choose between getting that morning-pick-me-up and showing up late to work or making it to work on time and suffering through a very sleepy morning.
Enter the coffee pod machine. These wondrous little inventions allow you to make coffee in two simple steps (three, if you’re picky). Simply choose the type of coffee you want and place a pre-measured “pod” in your machine, fill it with water, and hit “start.” Your coffee will be ready shortly.
But while the coffee pod machine is all the rage these days, does it provide you with the best coffee that you’d be getting if you made it the traditional way? The answer is ultimately “yes” if you use the best coffee pod machine- but not all the machines in Australia are created equal.
How do Coffee Pod Machines Work?
It seems strange to many people that a little plastic container (which looks like an oversized individual creamer) and a cup of water can provide them with the same coffee that comes from that laborious process mentioned earlier… but it’s true. The machine works through the ingenuity of the device and the pod itself.
- The pod is filled with precisely the right amount of grounds to produce one cup of coffee. Some pods also feature flavouring, like “French Vanilla” or “Carmel,” which is a powder mixed with the grounds.
- The machine punctures the lid of the pod and fills it with pressurised water at the perfect temperature. This water then exits the pod and drains through a filter, which catches the excess grounds, and then pours into your cup.
What Seperates the Bad from the Best Coffee Pod Machines in Australia?
The quality of a coffee pod is completely dependent on the quality of the coffee grounds inside of it, and as is true with everything in the coffee world, the fresher the better. The time since roasting and grinding are vital components when it comes to the taste of coffee and the one bad thing about mass-produced coffee pods is that they may have been lying on store shelves for a long time.
If you buy the best coffee pod machines and pods from Sirius Coffee, right here in Australia, you won’t have to worry about that. Our coffee pods are different from the competition simply because they’re fresher. And since machine quality can play a part in taste, you’ll be glad to know that you can buy the best coffee pod machine in Australia too.
