How to make the best use of pods for making the ideal coffee?
Using the short shot button of the nespresso machine is the best way of ensuring that the beans are used to the fullest. This way, the right amount of water, which is necessary to extract the elements of the beans, is released. The Lungo button is only recommended for Lungo pods.
How long can the brew pods be stored?
Nespresso pods have a shelf life of up to 24 months if packed and foiled securely. For some pods like K-fee and Caffity pods, it is best to use them within 12 months of production. For most pods, it is recommended to use them within 6 weeks of opening them.
Is it normal for coffee to spurt out of the pods?
Yes, it is indeed normal for that to happen. When coffee is roasted and ground, it releases many natural gases. The coffee can release gases even after they are sealed in the pod. When the seed pops in the machine, the bean can spurt coffee as the pressure is released.
How should the pods be disposed of?
Coffee pods are mostly biodegradable. The additives in them enable the plastic to decompose quickly. This decomposition best takes place if the pods are disposed of with the rest of the trash of the house, and they reach the landfill. Within 2 to 3 years, they will completely decompose in the landfill. Some pods are not compostable to it is recommended not to dispose them in the compost bin.
Is it normal that it is harder than usual to close my nespresso machine?
Yes. Some machines are harder to close with certain capsules than others. If you face this problem, try checking again that the capsule is fitted in the machine correctly and then apply a little more force to close the lid. Most capsules are not hard enough to cause damage to the machine, so this should not be a big issue.
