This is an interesting question – how many machines do you think there are – 50 million? 500 million? a billion? and of these machines how many are able to be used with the beter ESE easy serving (single serving) espresso coffee pod? Just think if every one decided to use the ESE 44mm coffee pods instead of coffee beans or ground coffee in packets, there would be millions or thousands of tinnes of wastage of coffee removed from the planet. thousands more people would enjoy a fresher cup of coffee, and this in turn would make thousands of people more happy. It might even stop someone having an argument – how good would that be.
Want to start a campaign: How many tonnes of Coffee could be saved by using ESE 44mm coffee pods?
So we need to start a couple of campaigns here. First we need to try and establish just how many coffee machines there are on the planet. Once we know that we then need to evaluate these figures and find out how many of those espresso coffee machines can take E.S.E 44mm coffee pods and then we need to work out how much coffee is consumed and we can then work out how much coffee is wasted by using the ground coffee and bean coffee as opposed to using E.S.E 44mm espreso coffee pods which you can by from aromo coffee online.
This is what Wikipedia has to say about Espresso:
Espresso is made by forcing very hot water under high pressure through finely ground, compacted coffee.This process produces an almost syrupy beverage by extracting both solid and dissolved components. It also produces the definitive crema,by emulsifying the oils in the ground coffee into a colloid, which does not occur in other brewing methods. There is no universal standard defining the process of extracting espresso,but there are several published definitions which attempt to place constraints on the amount and type of ground coffee used, the temperature and pressure of the water, and the rate of extraction. Generally, one uses an espresso machine to make espresso. The act of producing a shot of espresso is often termed “pulling” a shot, originating from lever espresso machines, which require pulling down a handle attached to a spring-loaded piston, forcing hot water through the coffee at high pressure. Today, however, it is more common for the pressure to be generated by an electric pump.
