  • Specialty coffee pods

    I live in Sydney and have found a few coffee roasters here who do their own coffee pods (double roasters, brew haha and killer coffee). Just wanted to know if anyone knows any other roasters who are doing coffee pods so I can try something different.

    Personally I've never quite understood the concept of specialty grade, high quality stale coffee

        Mad Roasters in Melbourne looks interesting if it is pods you desire.

            Just make sure they flush the pods with artisanal nitrogen

              "Artisanal nitrogen"! Really?!!!

              Nitrogen is an inert gas and it really doesn't matter if it's artisanal or bogan

                Indeed mate....

                I know you can get Dry N2 as compared to normal compressed N2 but I've not come across Artisanal before...

                Mal.

                  Maybe it's prettier than boring old regular Nitrogen
                  Alternately one could always flush their pods with a dash of Flamboyant Argon or Cheeky CO2

                    Whilst we are on the Nespresso track, or off it...can I ask why when I went to the Nespresso shop today and they made me an espresso ( research purposes ) It appears to have an amazing crema, do they use a pressurised system?
                    I thought the crema was a reflection of bean freshness, which the Forum says Nespresso certainly isn't. Or is there something I am missing? any comments welcome.

                      Oops, I mean't to post to the Nespesso Thread but I guess talking about pods it brings up the same issues.

                        Your right CD, the crema looks OK, certainly not "amazing" but tastes like crap.

                        How do they do it, don't know and really don't care, for all I know they may add a drop of dish washing detergent to the pod.

                          Well I certainly wasn't going to ask the staff member there after she told me that the pods don't have a use by date ( actually they do ,12 months) and she was still drinking some of her pods from 6 years ago " ...they are sealed in nitrogen, no oxygen so the coffee doesn't deteriorate"
                          hmmm ok whatever you say Miss Nespresso.
                          And I did buy some pods for Christmas day as it is the only option I have to make lots of coffees in a row at Christmas...for other people.

                            This is probably the best solution.

                              Back to the point of the OP.
                              Not a pod person either, but my local roaster Arrosto Coffee in Renmark SA does pods. Available on his website.
