  • Silvias POD, not PID

    Rancilio has gone the way of that :lochNESPRESSO and now has pods for the Silvia and Epoca machines.

    Now theres a slap in the face for espresso coffee lovers. What next? Pre-frothed milk? :-/

    Wouldnt the coffee be a litle stale? Sort of takes the fresh out of fresh coffee.

      Pods... ouch. It wont do much for the machine "cred" either.

      I hear that some corners of the planet like pods, but Im yet to see much interest in this little sunburnt island.

      What next? Pre-frothed milk?
      Nice idea Robusto but maybe you could take it a step further, Queensland has a second-hand beer labeled XXXX, its only a matter of time until Nestle do the same for coffee.

      ...or maybe they are? How is instant made?

        Of course,  XXXX beer is so-named out of consideration for Queenslanders who cant spell!!

        ;D  ;D  ;D

            its only an option isnt it? i imagine they are selling the adaptors because people are willing to pay for them. if if you dont want them you dont have to have them.

              Yeah- pod adaptors are common....I shudder to admit that that theyre even available for ECM and the other great Italian brands- if fact you can get one for any 58mm pf....not that Ill ever stock them

                The way I see it is that if someone new to home coffee can buy a Silvia or high end espresso maker with a pod adapter they can always work their way up by ditching the pod adapter and eventually using fresh beans without having to buy a new machine. Has to be a marketing ploy to capture a bit of the market heading towards pods.
