Do you just love coffee and making them seems like a guilty pleasure? I know! Coffee is just amazing. One thing I can suggest when making coffee at home is a coffee pod. If you have coffee pods at home and you wonder how to make the best coffee out of this, continue reading and I'll give you tips!
1. Buy a fresh, best-tasting coffee pod of your choice.
If you want the best coffee that your machine could make, then choose the best flavor for your coffee pod. In that way, you would know what taste to expect and learn how to make the best out of it by adding honey, sugar, milk, anything that you want to add to your coffee! But make sure it is compatible with your machine.
2. Good water is the right way.
You may not believe it but sometimes your bad coffee it’s not actually bad, it’s the water that you brew it in, and it is and will be the same mistake that most of us will do over and over again until we realize it. To make the best out of your coffee pod, use filtered water or a water filter jug to reduce the hardness of the water which can lead to under-extracted, weak coffee.

3. Clean your Nespresso machine frequently.
Regularly clean your baby Nespresso machine, this is the most important duty you have as a Nespresso machine mom. If you use your machine regularly it will cause a build-up of coffee residue and oils, which could also cause bacteria, mold, or yeast, in the brewing chamber. This could make your coffee taste bitter and poor performance of your machine so remember to clean it regularly.
4. Prime and let your machine warm up before making your coffee.
Warm-up your machine as if you are making a cup of coffee but only with water. This would help to clean out the spout of your machine from any left-over coffee residue, repeat the process until the water that comes out from the machine is clear. This would also help to heat the water perfectly for your actual coffee.
5. Invest in latte and espresso glasses.
If you always find yourself making a cup of espresso in your dull mug, investing in espresso glasses would be game-changing for you. In this way, you could enjoy your espresso as if a professional barista made it for you from a very expensive coffee shop. Other than having a fancy experience, this would also help you get the right amount of espresso perfectly.
