Coffee Pods: A Brief History of Coffee and Coffee Today
The first records of coffee being consumed as a drink come from the mid 15th century AD, in what is today Yemen. From there, coffee spread to the rest of the Middle East, Turkey, Persia, and parts of Northern Africa by the 16th century. Soon after this, coffee was introduced to the Balkans, Europe, Indonesia, and the Americas.
The first coffeehouse can be traced to Constantinople and opened in 1554. The first European country to obtain live coffee trees was the Netherlands in 1616. Coffee has had a rough but significant history.
Coffee has been banned multiple times throughout history, from Mecca in the 16th century to Ethiopia in the 18th century. Coffee was and still is an important and main factor in many economies such as Brazil, Vietnam, and Colombia as well as other locations in South America, Asia, and Africa.
Coffee was very controversial when it was first introduced to many cultures. Many different groups and religions were conflicted as to whether it was an acceptable drink. Luckily for us, our ancestors came to the conclusion that coffee is more than acceptable to drink.
Over 100 million people in the United States drink coffee everyday. 60% of these coffee 100 million coffee drinkers claim they need a cup of coffee to start their day. Due to the millions of consumers, new, intricate, and interesting methods of coffee production have been designed. These range from instant coffee, to drip coffee, to specialty machines and everything in between. In the past few years the growing trend of coffee capsules has skyrocketed.

Nespresso®* Capsules Make Things Easier
With the introduction of products like Nespresso®* capsules, brewing a perfect espresso at home has become as simple as pushing a button. These coffee capsules have an exact amount of ground espresso sealed inside of them that deliver the best and most efficient espresso possible.
The machine works by pushing water at a scaled temperature and pressure through the capsules. This process results in the perfect espresso. Nespresso®* capsules, or the new and emerging alternatives, make setting up and cleaning up your coffee simple. All you have to do is place the capsule in the machine, close the machine, make sure there is water in the reservoir, and press the button. Just like that, you can have a gourmet coffee anywhere.
If you have an Aeroccino milk frother with your Nespresso®* machine, you can make a wide range of specialty drinks just like in your favorite coffee shops, from lattes, to cappuccinos, and macchiatos. All that you have to do is put milk inside the Aeroccino, press the button once quickly for hot frothed milk, or once holding it down for cool frothed milk. With the combination of the Nespreesso®* capsules and the Aeroccino, you can make hot or iced specialty drinks easily, at home or the office, just like a world famous barista.
Cleanup after using the delicious Nespresso®* capsules consists of the disposal or recycling of the coffee capsules, which are collected in a container inside the machine after each use. There is no grinding and measuring coffee beans before use, or washing the coffee pot and other parts of the machine afterwards like a drip coffee machine. You only have to descale your machine about every 300 uses, so for the average person twice per year, and refill the water chamber as needed.
