Today I want to show you how you can make your own coffee pods for your Senseo, Hamilton Beach or any type of machine that uses 7 gram soft coffee pods like Senseo or Melitta.
These pods are really hard to find & they are not very cheap. Luckily, this solution is.
Here’s what you need:
- fresh ground coffee
- basket coffee filters
Start by grabbing any coffee you want (ah, the possibilities) and a pack of coffee filters, available at your local grocery store. I always have cone filters in my kitchen, but I would definitively recommend basket filters for this purpose. They are much softer, and really easy to fold & to form the pod.
Please, use basket filters.
Put 1 coffee scoop – that’s 2 tablespoons of coffee into a filter.
Next, grab the corners, fold, twist and form the pod.
This is going to be a super easy job with basket filters, because they are really soft & thin.
Cut the top.
They seriously take 30 seconds to make.
Maybe a minute.
Feel free to experiment with any blends you have on hand – light roast, medium roast, flavored coffees or espresso blends, would all be suitable.
Have a great weekend!
