Cafepods Updates US Website, Pack Sizes, and Coffee Pod Shipping

Header Logo 1

Cafepods has combined their European web site and their US site into one super site. What does that mean to US customers? You only have to visit Cafepods to order your coffee pods. They've also updated their coffee pod packs to make shipping cheaper to US customers. New pack changes including the new 18 pack Double (14g) coffee pods.

Also, from June 1st they are now shipping to the US at super rates, with orders over 40% cheaper than before thanks to a new courier they are using for international deliveries. For example an average order of 10 x 18 double (14g) 62mm pods ( 180 pods total ) including delivery is just £42.95 ( $77 approx ). That's less than 42 cents for each pod including delivery.

We've really enjoyed the coffee pods from Cafepods, so we think you should check them out if you own a Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, simplehuman, Krups 1010 , GPOD, Home Cafe and other single serve coffee pod makers.

Make Your Own Coffee Pods with Melitta FilterPads

51Hn-Gkqzul. Ss400

We just found out (thanks Cafepods) about the Melitta FilterPads (50 count) For the Senseo and other Pod Coffee Machines. These "filterpads" allow you to use your own coffee and create your own coffee pods for your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, simplehuman, Krups 1010 , GPOD, Home Cafe and other single serve coffee pod makers. Unlike the Perfect Pod Maker, the Melitta Filterpads also don't require a dedicated heat press device to seal the coffee pods you make. We'll be ordering up a set of these to review very soon.

Here's how it works:

  • Fill it with 3-4 teaspoons ground 'drip coffee' or ground espresso coffee (the finer the better).
  • Push the flap inside, and make sure the coffee is spread evenly in the filterpad. Make sure the filterpad is closed securely.
  • Put the filterpad in your 'pod holder' of the machine you have, close the lid and make the coffee!

Important Tips:

  • The finer the grind, the better the results. So don't use coffee that is ground too coarse. A 'drip coffee' grind is fine enough (but espresso or Turkish grind is better).
  • The optimum 'filling amount' is 6-8 grams of ground coffee. This is 3-4 LEVEL teaspoonful.
  • Remove any loose grains of coffee off the closed padfilter before putting it in the pod coffee machine.
  • Used filterpads can be put with the green waste since they are biodegradable!

Review: Fratello Coffee Pods for Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, and other Coffee Pod Brewers

Review from Single Serve Coffee.com - Coffee Pod Reviews Img 4200

We've sampled all of the Fratello coffee pods we received for review over the past week. We picked up a sampler pack by ordering from the Coffee Artisan which comes with five different pods for $2.49. If you don't know that much about Fratello, Fratello has been roasting coffee since 1985, so that gives them a little north of 20 years of experience to put into their coffee pods.

Coffee Pods in Fratello Coffee Pod sampler pack:

  • French Saigon Dark- This popular blend is a sure fire hit for those who love the smoky taste of a dark roast. Never bitter. 100%
  • Columbian Supremo - Premium Colombian coffee - full in flavor. A classic cup of coffee.
  • Columbian Natural Decaf Colombian - Coffee with heady aroma and mellow flavor. - Swiss Water Decaf Process with no chemical aftertaste.
  • French Vanilla - An exceedingly smooth Bourbon Vanilla - one of the worlds most popular.
  • Costa Rican Organic Fair Trade - Strictly high-grown coffee that produces a distinctive brew with vibrant flavor & rich undertones.

These coffee pods will work in your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, simplehuman, Krups 1010 , GPOD, Home Cafe and other single serve coffee pod makers. What did we think? How good are the different coffee pods from Fratello?

Europe: Lavazza Allegro Coffee Pods for Senseo

Finally "true" coffee on Senseo!! Or at least that's what we're lead to believe here at Single Serve Coffee. We got word of these new coffee pods from reader Christian, who has just travelled back from Europe and picked up the Lavazza Allegro coffee pods for Senseo and thinks they're pretty good. We'll be pinging our sources overseas to see if we can get some ourselves, and hopefully they're as good as they claim.

These coffee pods will work great in your Senseo, Bunn My Cafe, Melitta One:One, simplehuman, Krups 1010 , GPOD, Home Cafe and other single serve coffee pod makers.

Coffee Pod News in the Single Serve Coffee Forums

Honduras Large

It's nice to see many of the coffee pod etailers stepping up to the coffee pod plate this year by offering 100's of new coffee pods for your one cup single serve coffee brewer. There's an extensive thread in the Single Serve Coffee Forums detailing some of the new pods coming to some of the online stores such as the new Wolfgang Puck Rainforest Alliance Honduras pod coffee.

“My spine is tingling.” This is how cupper Adam Pesce reacted to a Honduras sample from this year’s harvest. For a coffee taster, discovering a unique, new coffee is the ultimate thrill. These particular beans were grown in a pristine cloud forest over 1,300 meters above sea level in the Sierra de Montecillos region. This coffee was selectively hand-picked and carefully cleaned and dried to maintain its fine quality. The bright blue-green color of the beans from this harvest indicates that they are fresh and have been properly processed. Once brewed, this coffee offers a clean cup with slightly floral aroma and sweet taste."
