    How to make your own Coffee Pods?


    If in case you have a coffee maker that works with pods too, then check out this informative article on how to make your own coffee pods. This can be a real money saving method for coffee lovers. A pod coffee maker is portion controlled as you can control the energy. For saving your precious money, time and energy, you can make your own pods with the methods we are discussing here.

    1.) Materials: There is a little that you need in order to make your coffee pod. You need the cup from your pod maker, a small measuring cup that can easily fit inside the cup, a few regular round coffee filters and any kind or brand of coffee.
    2.) This part is pretty clear. Take the measuring mug you found to fit inside your pod coffee maker’s holder cup, then place the coffee filter over it. Then center it. Now you have to place the measuring mug down into pod coffee cup. It will provide the shape and stability.
    3.) Adding the coffee: Take the coffee of your choice into the paper. Make sure the coffee to be espresso ground to increasing the flavor to maximum. Do not go over the top rim of coffee pod holder as it will not fit properly.
    4.) Fold the pod: The part is little bit complex yet easier than the previous ones. First of all, you have to take the edge of the coffee filter and then fold it to the opposite edge of pod holder. Leave a tiny gap in between. Now take the measuring cup for one last time and place it on top of the pod and press it down. This will seal all the folds and will compact the coffee within the pod and create a more perfect fit for coffee maker. By now you will be having a little fold left on top. You have the choice to tuck it under the folds or trim it down. But, you have to be careful.
    5.) Your coffee pod is ready: You have to keep one thing in mind that these are folded and not sealed, thus there are chances to fall apart if it is tossed too much. Take it up and place it in the freezer.
