Baronet ESE Espresso Pods

Library - 7465We've been enjoying the new line up of ESE espresso pods from Baronet Coffee. Baronet was kind enough to send us a sampling of their Light, Dark, and DECAF espresso pods along with a Grimac ESE Pod machine for testing. We can't thank them enough.

If you aren't familiar with ESE Pods, they are not coffee pods. ESE pods are a smaller pod, and are used for making espresso shots only. ESE Pods will not fit in your Home Cafe, Senseo or Bunn. They will however fit in any ESE espresso pod machine. We reviewed the FrancisFrancis! recently, and it used ESE pods and we feel a good choice for a starting espresso machine.

Library - 7458Unlike coffee pods, ESE is an actual standard. They are all sized the same and fit in any ESE espresso machine. Imagine if the coffee pod market actually used a standard 10 gram, 62 mm pod and you knew you could use any coffee pod in any machine? Wild.

The Baronet Light, Dark, and Decaf ESE pods are very good. We really enjoyed the Dark roast over the light roast, and found the DECAF pod to have a good flavor despite being decaf.

Library - 7463We like to have our shots of espresso "ristretto" style. So we tend to use a little less water and try to get the most crema we can into the cup. Each of the Baronet espresso pods had a nice full crema and passed the dreaded sugar test - sugar staying on top of the crema for 3-4 seconds and then falling into the hot water.

We are really enjoying a shot of espresso about mid day and then following up with a nice cup of single serve coffee in the late afternoon. Great stuff and we recommend trying out the Baronet Espresso pods if you have an ESE machine.
