?? I didn't say anything about espresso. I think you've got the wrong end of the stick and wrongly assumed I'm a complete moron.

Tassimo Americanos make pretty small cups of coffee, hence why they introduced XL or Grande, to actually fill a cup.

Yeah I can see your point, but I recently listened to a expert about that exact issue and he said the problem is well beyond our shopping baskets. It's going to take an entire global shift away from consumption. Which, in that scheme, a few small plastic pods won't make a blind bit of difference. So enjoy!

These are pretty tough V the Costa Anericano
Do these actually have more coffee in, or does the barcode just make it push more water through the same amount of coffee?

Tassimo makes terrible coffee anyway in my experience.

Who complains about coffee length? Normal people choose a quality espresso and lengthen accordingly - Not to mention that local water hardness affects taste.......

Do you work for Tassimo as your statement does not make sense. First you agree to the point, then attempt to undermine it by asserting an 'expert' said the problem of over consumption is not significantly associated with consumers consuming. Classic nonsense statement. Then, you allude to the fact it's hard to reduce pollution because it's a global problem needing global resolve. Agreed but your not going to help? You intentionally flip that statement by saying plastic pods are not relevant to this problem and you attempt to justify your statement by intentionally using the words "a few small" plastic pods. MILLIONS of cute little furry plastic pods are dumped in the bin. BILLIONS when you aggregate it for the whole world.

Without wanting or intending to be patronising to you or anyone on this board, these coffee pod products are a waste of money and resources. The pods were developed as a consumer product to sell more coffee at a higher unit price, with the sole purpose of making more money for the producer, from the consumer. This is a financial bummer to consumers, but the real bummer is the waste they cause. The pods are unnecessary plastic/aluminium waste. French press or Italian stove top has less environmental externalities. You can recycle the grounds, and use a spoon to get the exact measure you like, so your not wasting coffee.

The manufacturers are trying to create a so called biodegradable / recyclable pods, to address their fears that consumer demand is increasingly moving away from pod machines on environmental 'grounds' - pun intended. The problem with that is this; the pod is an extra production process that is not needed (other than to generate more profit) thus creates waste that needn't be produced when making a cup of coffee. The Pods just don't serve any purpose and they should never have been allowed to enter the production process. These types of coffee machines create another unnecessary negative environmental externality if you make fair assumption that most coffee lovers already have a coffee press or stove top pot in their coffee making arsenal, that already makes awesome coffee.

Coffee pods are starting to be banned in some places. This is a good thing. killthekcup.org/
Tassimo Pods are not environmentally friendly. Nor are any of the other brands. They produce extra waste for no reason.

Do you know how one of these machines work? There's a barcode on the pod which tells the machine how much water, pressure and temperature to use for the coffee. I simply said this makes a decent size cup. I really can't understand what you're getting your knickers in a twist about. I just said it makes a decent size cup.

Hey! It was a radio 4 documentary, I think it's still available. it was really interesting actually. I understand what I said seems contradictory, but the point I was trying to make is that it's a larger problem than can be changed by slightly adjusting our shopping habits. He was explaining that it needs a world wide shift from Capitalist consumption that we have all become used to, not just a few small changed to the way we shop. It's an incredibly complicated issue, probably far too complicated for a post wall on HUKD.

I was just trying to supply people with a good deal on coffee pods.

Oh and no, I definitely don't work for tassimo!

Ha ha it is quite relevant if your machine and pod are making it and other pods make small cups. It even states the size of cup on the front packaging, so Tassimo think it's relevant. Tassimo users think it's relevant. Please answer this, do you have /use a tassimo?

Yes, though by comparison to my Nespresso it's poor. Did you know that holding the button produces hot water? Length of coffee is irellivent.

Yeah I do know that, but when you just want to whack it in and carry on with your life, that is a bit of a pain. So, to me it's not irrelevant. Have a great afternoon standing by your coffee machine holding down buttons.

I’m guessing people are mixing up tassimo with Dulce gusto. I have both and defo prefer the tassimo because it dispenses the right about of water to coffee ratio so it tastes perfect everytime, Dulce on the other hand I have to manually switch it off and often tastes crap

I guess they thought you could add extra water so what’s the difference between normal americano and the xl version. Well the xl version has a bit more extra coffee packed into the pods and makes a 270ml size drink compared to a regular 215ml

Respectfully (still not wanting to sound patronising just explaining something!) I understood what you were saying but it's not correct, and if the documentary was saying that modification of individual buying has no impact, then the documentary is incorrect. Slightly changing your consumption patterns /shopping habit IS key. That's because it's the aggregate of your small decision, repeated over millions and billions of people that makes the difference.

The problem is is information. Producers spend allot of cash marketing to consumers to get your business. They don't however shout out what their products waste footprint is. And they certainly don't want you to know the product they produce is actually pointless in terms of production, because it is a duplication of an existing superior product / production method that creates SIGNIFICANTLY less waste/negative environmental impact.

Production is supposed to follow the laws of demand and supply. Marketing and the concept of premium goods etc skews this such that people consume goods they don't need, consume more than they need, and pay more than they need to...like these pointless coffee pods.

If you have time read up on economist Alfred Kahn's concept called "the Tyranny of small decisions" and the tragedy of the commons - key concepts in environmental production and Environmental/Ecological Economics

I will try and find the R4 documentary you referred to.

Well, that's all what I used to think.

But this chap basically said we are being conned into thinking we can make a difference through our shopping basket choices.

Huge companies are spending a great deal of time pretending to be more environmentally sound, but in reality they are making virtually no changes, because it will cost them money. And we as consumers buy into it because its easier than what actually needs to change.

It's worth a listen if you can find it. It might broaden your view a little. Again, not in a patronising way.

Touché! But you don't need to buy into anything the large firms say - you just need to be informed / don't buy wasteful goods / plastic tat. Reducing waste isn't complicated. It's about moving to sustainable consumption and throwing consumerism in the bin (something that should be thrown out ha ha), which is without doubt, the most stupid concept man or wo ever created. Take most documentaries with a pinch of salt - even the BBC. It's about recycling I think, if its the one I found...that's well out of date...we are into the era of precycling and consumption reduction. That would include not buying pointless, wasteful, expensive coffee pods - see you can change the world!

These Coffee Pods are soon-to-be plastic sea junk wrapped up in shiny 'buy me' wrapping. Don't get sucked in.
