E.S.E. Pod Selection for Our Portable Espresso Makers

The E.S.E. (Easy Serving Espresso) pod, commonly known as Espresso Pod, is widely used in Italy. The E.S.E .pod combines the true Italian tradition of roasting and modern industrial techniques seeking efficiency, precision, perfect preservation and the best possible quality.

With Which Handpresso Portable Espresso Makers can They Be Used?

The E.S.E. pod works with Handpresso manual espresso machines (Handpresso Pump) and 12v coffee makers for the car (Handpresso Auto).  Whatever the version of the machine, you will have a perfect 16-bar shot in the cup.

What Does The ESE Pod Contain?

The E.S.E pod contains 7 grams of roasted, ground and tamped coffee between two sheets of 100% vegetable, certified compostable paper. The diameter of the coffee pod is 44 millimeters. All the coffee molecules are thus preserved and remain intact for almost 2 years! If one side is rough, it is the side which has to placed towards the grid. 

Unlike the soft Senseo® pod, the ESE pod is to be extracted at a high (9-19 bar) pressure and serves a genuine espresso whereas Senseo® pods prepare a 2-bar filter coffee. The ESE pods produce a creamy and generous espresso.
