My name is Morag Halley and I purchased my first commercial machine to make my own perfect coffee at home in the mid 1990’s. I became a fan of coffee pods and set up my own company in 2006 and became a coffee pod supplier, beans and coffee machines. We then ventured out and became a premium Coffee Pod Supplier

I am a firm believer that, “Life’s too short to drink bad coffee”



The difference between coffee pods and capsules

What is a coffee pod?

Coffee pods typically come in paper packaging. The pressed coffee powder is enclosed in a disc-shaped paper pod. The coffee grounds come in two sheets of paper after undergoing compression, making them lightweight and easy to store. Almost a coffee tea bag! 

  • Sold in vacuum packs to preserve the coffee quality 
  • Coffee extracted from pods usually is more full-bodied.
  • A key component is reducing waste, as they have a lower environmental footprint, so happy days – more environmentally friendly! Take a pod and place it under a camelia or rhododendron plant; they will love you for it. 
  • Coffee pods contain more coffee grounds; water comes in contact with all the coffee, so the coffee is fuller-bodied – higher volume per cup.
  • Coffee pods can be used with all slow-pressure coffee machines equipped with a portafilter.
  • They come in single and double pods.
  • Easy and convenient without a mess
  • Come in a variety of flavours and coffee strengths. 

What Is a Coffee Capsule?

Coffee Capsules are plastic or aluminium packs containing coffee powder. They’re perfect for people who lead busy lives and don’t have time to brew a pot of coffee every morning 

  • Often only compatible with a single brand machine, i.e. Nespresso
  • Easy and convenient without a mess
  • You cant put them in the compost bin, and they are usually not recyclable 
  • Coffee pods come in a wide variety of flavours
  • They are less coffee waste than traditional drip-fed coffee
  • Fewer coffee grounds per pod, so less volume per brew.

Are Coffee Pods and Coffee Capsules the same?
