Are pod or capsule coffee machines any good?

Even though a coffee pod machine's main hook is that it's quick and convenient, you can still customise your coffee.

Do you have a preference for cappuccinos or flat whites? Make sure you get a machine with a steam wand if you like to froth your own milk, barista style. Some more advanced models, like the Breville Nespresso Creatista Plus even let you choose your milk texture and temperature.

Or if you prefer automating the milk-adding process and receiving your whole cup of coffee at the push of a button, choose a model with with an integrated milk frother. You can also find separate milk frothers here.

Remember to use our filters to help you find exactly what you want. Even though a coffee pod machine's main hook is that it's quick and convenient, you can still customise your coffee.
