*IMPORTANT: Which coffee to use?

500 grams of coffee will give you around 100 Pod Star shots, so you'll likely save money as well.

Pod Star reusable stainless steel capsules allow you to pack your capsules with your own favourite blend. Simply ask your local cafe to grind their roasted beans to a number 2 grind or grind your own (depending on your grinder you may have to adjust this slightly, use a burr grinder if possible).  If the grind is too coarse the water will flow too fast through the pod, too fine and it will flow to slow.

Packaged coffee from the supermarket that is ground for espresso machines or plunger is not suitable as you really need the perfect "capsule grind".  The closest grind is probably "stovetop" - for use in stovetop brewers.  Espresso-grind coffee bought off the shelf is ground too finely. 

To help you achieve the perfect coffee, we now have:

Pod Star manual stainless steel coffee grinder that makes an ideal grind

Organic and fair trade ready to go ground coffee ground especially to work with Pod Star

Ensure that you tamp the coffee firmly and fill to the top. 

If you like your coffee on the stronger side we recommend making a double shot with two capsules. Or if you regularly make coffee for two people, it is quicker to fill and make with two reusable pods on hand.  When you buy two or more pods in one purchase, you will receive 10% off all.

No more waste

I bought the set and am very happy with it. I love the reusable stainless steel pod so much, I've ordered a couple more twin packs, it makes it easier when friends come over for a coffee. I also have one at work.
