How to use an ESE espresso pod with your espresso machine.

If you have an espresso machine, it probably has two or more different filter baskets. One will be deep, and is for when you want to add enough loose coffee to make two shots of espresso. You’ll also have a basket which is only half as deep, for when you want to make a single shot.

Finally, with most modern espresso machines, there is a third basket for use with espresso pods. The pods come in sealed packets and can be placed directly into the filter basket. In other words, you don’t have to grind coffee beans, tamp the coffee, and so on.

In this short video I demonstrate how to use these pods.
