An Easy Serving Espresso Pod, or E.S.E. pod, is a small coffee disc (Coffee pod), packed in a paper filter covering. Each pod contains 7 grams of compressed ground coffee, ready to be extracted into a shot. A double serving pod, (doppio), contains 14 grams of ground coffee. Pods are typically 44-45mm size for E.S.E. certified machines. There are many Espresso machines that can use the 45 mm diameter E.S.E Espresso standard Pod.
The major advantage with E.S.E. pods is that they don’t need tamping, measuring, or grinding. They are designed to offer consistent espresso out of the box with any of the supported E.S.E. compatible espresso machines.
