Traveling in Boston this week… stayed at a nice hotel near the water… room was equipped with a Melitta All-In-One pod coffee maker. So I thought, what the heck, may as well give it a try.
So I warmed up the machine and apprehensively opened the hermetically sealed pod. Smells like coffee. Kind of. But what do I know about pods?
Placed the pod in the basket… so far, so good. Closed it up, pushed the button – squirt! Looks like a little pre-infusion. A few seconds later it pulled about 6 ounces in ten seconds.
I brought the cup to my nose… not much aroma to speak of. Now a taste… verdict is…. YUCK! This stuff is pure swill.
So it’s settled. Pods really are just stale coffee. The Melitta really is a POS home appliance. Not worth your time or money.
