Order our box of 50 premium grade fresh-roasted 7g ESE coffee pods, roasted right here in Melbourne Australia.
These pods are designed to be used in equipment that is compatibile with the International ESE 7g standard.
It might surprise you, but every day we are asked to confirm whether our ESE 7g coffee pods are suitable for all sorts of coffee making equipment - often gear we have never heard of.
Please understand, we are coffee roasters first and foremost. This is our focus and we are not involved in equipment.
The coffee industry is huge - there are companies that focus on roasting the best coffee and there are companies that are more interested in flogging gear.
We do not sell or support coffee equipment and we respectfully ask - please do not send us messages requesting us to qualify or interpret whether your machine suits ESE pods - how are we expected to know ?.
Our business involves roasting coffee beans and converting these fresh roasted beans to ESE pods in accordance with the international standard for 7 gram E.S.E - we simply can't support the hundreds of different types of pod and capsule machines out in customer's homes.
*** IMPORTANT NOTE - Sept 2019 ***
We are aware of problems with inadequate brewing from battery powered portable coffee makers sold by Makita Australia allegedly capable of using "PODS".
We have tested the Makita portable coffee maker with ESE pods and it does not work properly at this time.
The brew chamber that holds the ESE pod does not enable sufficient pressure to build for release of the oils from coffee.
This is a design defect on the Makita device, not a problem with our ESE pods.
If you own a Makita portable coffee maker, please do not purchase our ESE pods to "try", it currently does not work and the issues involved in returning part-used cartons of ESE pods are something we wish to avoid for our customers, along with the frustrations of it not working, etc.
For all other equipment, please check your owners manual or confirm with your supplier or manufacturer of the equipment to determine whether your machine suits 7g ESE pods - it's not the pod supplier that confirms this, it's the equipment supplier - ESE Pods are manufactured to a strict standard and tolerance.
ESE Pods are NOT Nespresso capsules, however, we do sell fantastic Nespresso compatible capsules that are so popular and equally tasty.
We have developed and refined this winning blend over the last 11 years.
It's not easy to produce a clean, sweet tasting 100% arabica coffee that works in a low dosage single serve solution like pods and capsules.
Our focus is to produce a POD that enables you to achieve the best possible extraction from your 7g ESE compatable POD equipment.
Don't use stale imported ESE coffee Pods when you can buy fresh roasted coffee pods from a premium Australian supplier that cares about the taste of your coffee.
7g ESE coffee Pods are easy to use, pre-packed serving of coffee that ensures consistent flavour, aroma and strength with a minimum of mess.
ESE coffee Pod solutions are perfect for the home or business environment were a quality cup of coffee can be created easily and effectively without the skill or maintenance required from traditional espresso equipment.
This 100% arabica blend uses the absolute best grades of premium specialty Kenya, Colombia, Brazil, Sumatran and Guatemala coffees we can find within the 400+ coffees that are imported into Australia.
We believe this is the best genuine 100% arabica POD in Australia. We understand most, if not all the other suppliers use harsh tasting robusta in their POD coffees.
Supplied in a box of 50x 7g ESE PODs - our customers regularly tell us it's the best ESE pod on the market.
Fresh roasted beans are converted to ESE Coffee Pods within 48hrs. Each ESE coffee Pod is individually sealed under atmospheric conditions for freshness and convenience.
This product is NOT compatiable with Nespresso,Dulce Gusto, Lavazza, MAP, Senseo, Aldi or other proprietary capsule systems.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU MUST READ BEFORE PURCHASING - COMPATABILITY WITH YOUR COFFEE MACHINE
The term "pod" is a largely overused word in the coffee industry, so please take a moment to read this important message.
Historically, equipment manufacturers have been both vague and deceptive when marketing their equipment and claiming support for "pods" without actually defining what that "pod" may be in terms of a specification that helps the owner of the machine identify the appropriate consumables, e.g. pods.
An example being Cusinart - they have a machine that support PODS, but nowhere on their websites around the world will they confirm specifically if the POD is the industry standard ESE. Philips Senseo was another type of equipment that was rather vague but it used a different style and configuration of pod that is NOT ESE compatible despite having a similar appearance.
Some machines makers refer to pods when they actually mean capsules, such as Nespresso, some De-Longhi machines (not all), Dulce Gusto, MAP, Senseo or Lavazza Blue equipment which are essentially proprietary and designed to ensure you are locked into the supply of their over-priced, stale, lower-grade systems.
Therefore, the words POD and CAPSULE are often mistaken or the term is interchanged.
Generally speaking, capsules are what is normally used for a Nespresso-compatible domestic appliance and a POD is used in an ESE machine or appliance.
Before you purchase a box of our 7g ESE Coffee PODS, please check your owners manual or confirm with your machine manufacturer or supplier as to the compatability of 7g ESE Coffee PODS.
As you can appreciate, we are not in a postition to test or validate our 7g Coffee PODS on the ever-increasing range of equipment that appliance retailers sell. In fact, we only test the ESE pods on 3 proven brands of dedicated ESE equipment.
We can assure you 100% that our PODS are manufactured to the precise International 7g ESE standard.
If your machine comes with an ESE Filter basket - some Breville, DeLonghi, Krups and Sunbeam domestic espresso machines have this ESE filter basket supplied in the original box, then you must use the ESE POD filter basket supplied with your machine in order to correctly operate the equipment with ESE pods.
That is, you cannot use the 7g ESE coffee pod in a standard espresso filter handle designed for holding ground coffee. You also can't use these 7g ESE coffee pods like tea bags by infusing them in hot water (don't laugh, many people try).
In the unfortunate event you have purchased ESE coffee pods and discover they do not suit your machine, we will accept the box returned but please ensure you understand you will need to pay for your return postage to us, along with fees we outlaid in shipping the item to you and if you have used some of the pods, a restocking fee will apply.
Returns are accepted on the basis you contact us beforehand and that your request to return is undertaken withing the reasonable timeframe of 30 days from purchase.
To avoid any issues, please ensure you check compatibility with your supplier before purchasing our 7g ESE Coffee PODS.
It's a jungle out there when it comes to working out the specifics between capsules and pods.
It's not easy to develop a sweet tasting coffee in just 7g of ground coffee.
We have been doing these ESE PODS for more than 6 years now and know that we have to use our best tasting, highest flavored arabica coffees in order to create some cup presence in such a small dosage application like a single serve POD.
The other trick we use is to roast in small batches and have these converted at more frequent intervals compared to our competitors - it costs us a lot more in freight and conversion price, but it keeps the product fresher and turning over faster.
