    Converting users of capsule machines to the delights of read coffee via ESE pods

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Dear Coffee lovers,
    I'm in the process of converting fellow work colleagues to users of espresso coffee machines as distinct from those ugly/dirty poor capsule,in this attempt I'll need some support from some of you good people.
    I've done some careful research on the habits of these users of capsule "coffee" machines and I believe with a little guided democracy I may make some headway.
    These capsule machines seem to be marketed as "quick" coffee makers when compared to espresso machines using per-ground or freshly ground coffee beans.
    I have sourced a reasonable number of machines (Sunbeam/Breville) 52/53mm group head size (not the commercial size)I've also seen filter baskets made specifically for the ESE (easy serve espresso) coffee pods that come in a size (52/53mm)however,for the life of me I cannot locate a source for these ese baskets.
    This is where with your collective wisdom,I need assistance.....anyone know where I can get them?
    My hope is to lure capsule machine users away with an alternative quick coffee maker using ese pods with their eventual move to pre ground or freshly ground beans.
    I have moved some of my machines to people after demonstrating how much better tasting and quick and easy coffee pods really are,those people have freely moved onto coffee bean use as a direct consequence of ese pods.
    Please check your contacts and sources and reply so I can move forward,where do I look next?
    Helpful advice is always welcome.
    Regards
    Mick

    I can't really answer your question re 52/53mm baskets. But my Gaggia Classic (58mm group) has an ese pod basket. Never used by me, but they do come with them. Actually, I don't think I've ever noticed ese pods for sale anywhere. Where do you get them?

    So if you're not committed to a SB or breville, you might find other options, like the GC that have the more common size group and accomodate ese pods.

    First things first though! Make sure you unplug the pod machine, jam a fork into the back of it and wriggle it around 'til it is rendered inoperable. You will then have to replace it, and you'll be the hero when you walk in with a lovely, new, proper coffee machine!

    Some Krups machines that use the same filter baskets as the Sunbeam/Breville machines came with ESE baskets. I own a Krups XP4050 and it has an ESE basket with it.
    A Krups spare part dealer would be the first place to look. I will enquire tomorrow as I am a Krups service agent and get you price and availability on the part.

    shortblackman,
    I'm interested to know if you would be willing to part with your ese (gaggia) adapter,I have a spare baby I might place at my work staff room to educate these people from the dark side and have them see the light!
    All the 58mm ese adapters won't fit any gaggia I have (classic,dose & baby).
    Cheers Mick

    Exactly how many is a "good number" ??
    All very odd considering ESE isnt really a big improvement over other "Capsule" systems ?
    Sounds like someone might be trying to get involved in an ESE based retail business ??

    where do you get ESE coffee pods

    Seems to be online only,I've looked everywhere locally and no one stocks them possibly due to affecting their capsule marketing!
    I'd like to know if any where other then online,would be easier.

    blend52,
    I'm on a self appointed mission to get as many espresso machines as I can source into other staff rooms throughout my school (and then the world).
    I source my building collection of machines from recycling centres from $5.00-$10.00 ,all brands and sizes......sadly people are throwing them out in favor of capsule machines "ugly-ugly".
    I give them all a health check up (gaskets,leaks and electrical safety) and either set up as staff room machines or occasionally sold to colleagues at a cost to cover parts?
    At this stage I'm looking at a dozen ese baskets in both 58mm(not that many) or 52/53mm (mostly required).
    Hope you can help.
    Cheers
    Mick

    Sure.

    Gaggia owners,
    Many gaggia owners have,with their purchased machines,ese suitable filter baskets.
    I'm in the position to set up gaggia espresso machines for benefit of fellow colleagues.
    I have been able to collect gaggia espresso machines from recycle centres (rubbish tip/tip shops),these machines are mostly complete and usually in good condition.
    I have checked all units for hygiene,safety and correct operation,purchased for $5-$10 era (classic,baby etc).People are tossing their machines in favour of capsule units.
    I wish to set up these machines as a direct alternative to capsule machines,however I'm unable to source ,as reasonable prices,ese filter baskets to ease capsule lovers to the real world of coffee leading them onto pre ground and whole bean use.
    I have some ese baskets although these won't fit in stock gaggias.
    Thanks in anticipation ,
    Cheers mick
    PS I'm into this purely for the sake of great coffee,not personal profitability!
