The reviews by other consumers will suggest, however, that the coffee pod makers are all sensitive and require some practice.
The areas which require some basic expertise are the volume of the coffee to be filled into the pod, the tamping before hand and the sealing of the pod.
First off it is important to note that the pods made can be used in Senseo coffee makers and a variety of machines that the coffee maker Philips has on the market.

You can use your favourite Senseo coffee or any other coffee to make the pods of your choice. You can even blend different coffee brands to create a unique blend and flavor.
There are some tips available for those who wish to use the coffee pod makers to extend their coffee experience horizon. The amount of coffee that placed into the pod needs to be measured very carefully.
If the pod you make is too plump there could be a problem later with the single serve espresso maker. Conversely, a skinny pod will create a weak brew not worthy of the name coffee.
Secondly, the edge of the pod needs to be coffee ground free when the sealing stage begins. An improperly sealed pod is no good and should be discarded.
Essentially one will have to experiment as to the amount of time required for an effective seal of the pod. Experience suggests that a little longer than the instructions require might be a god thing.
Some reviews suggest moistening the pod before inserting it in to the coffee machine so as to enhance the spread of the hot water through the pod.
This degree of finesse will ultimately limit the use of such a coffee pod maker. The overriding benefit seems to be the freedom of choice that is created in being able to make one’s own coffee pods.
OCM (OnCoffeeMakers.com) was started in 2007 with the first webpage about coffee machines. And for a number of years, we focused on helping people find their desired coffee machine (we still are helping folks with that! So, if you are looking for coffee machines for office or restaurants - check out the link).
In 2010, we started getting enquiries on restaurant marketing and we start to help food and beverage brands with their marketing. Below are campaigns and events that we have done over the years:
OCM's campaigns: F&B Marketing Ideas by OCM

Check out this restaurant marketing guide to learn more about the many campaigns and companies we have worked with.
Since then, we have also created many marketing workshops and classes for the F&B industry. Many of these modules are still running in tertiary institutions such as Temasek Polytechnic Skillsfuture Academy and also ITE College East COC classes, below are some snippets of our lectures and workshops:
