Ridiculously Easy Reusable Verismo Pods
I love my new Verismo machine, but I cannot stand spending $1.00 a pod (2 pods a drink). I guess that is why I have been obsessing about making my pods reusable. In fact, I made my pods reusable with a complex, time-consuming process you can read about here if you have time to waste. If not, I had my aha (or duh) moment this morning, and figured out the easiest, cheapest possible way to reuse Verismo pods, and it only takes about 10 seconds.
Here goes. Cut the plastic off of an existing pod. Loosely fill with espresso (or coffee, or tea, or hot chocolate). Wrap top in aluminum foil.
That’s it! I’ve included some pictures below, but it is super easy, and it saves you a friggin’ dollar per pod! You’re welcome.
UPDATE: If you over-fill or pack the esspresso in too tight, the pod won’t allow water through, and will flood your machine. So make sure you are loosely filling your pod!
If that isn’t enough, you can view my YouTube video for a tutorial. http://youtu.be/6q5XmbdqBsA
