Thank Pod for Coffee: The Best Coffee Pod Machines on the Irish Market

Who doesn’t love a good cup of coffee! Ask every Irish person you meet on the street what their go-to drink is for staying alert and awake, and we guarantee that a huge number will put coffee as their number one choice! One of the newest and most exciting coffee trends in all of Ireland is the rise of the coffee pod machine, so if you are reading this, then you either have one, or you are thinking of buying one. Whatever the case, you are in the right place because below, we will discuss why coffee pod machines have become so popular, and then give you three of the best, most wallet-friendly coffee pod machines available in-store and online here at DID.

What is a Coffee Pod Machine?

A coffee pod machine is a device that looks to take the labour out of having to grind your own coffee beans and allows you to make a high-quality cup of coffee in moments with the push of a button (or two). All you need to do with a pod machine is insert the pod of coffee that you want, make sure that you have water in the machine to mix with the pod when you press go and wait for the machine to prepare your coffee. Now it is not as simple as that because, as we know, the creation of great coffee is all but simple. However, the ease of use, modest price, and stylish design attached to each of the coffee pod machines available in the store make creating coffee seem like the easiest task in the world.


Why are they great?

There are so many reasons to love coffee pod machines. For one, they are very convenient and tidy for what they offer. One major time saver is that you do not need to sit and grind your beans, measure out the correct amount of coffee, or even think about adding the right amount of water at the proper temperature. The machines available in DID stores like the Nespresso pod machines, the Tassimo pod machines, and the Delonghi pod machines will all do this in a matter of moments!

Another reason why pod machines are so awesome is that they open up a world of new flavour options. Gone are the days of the traditional cup of coffee; with pod machines, you can make americanos, choccocinos, flat whites, and espressos with the touch of a button.

3 Quality Pod Machines


Tassimo Vivy Pod Machine

Available in black, red, and cream, this stunning coffee pod machine has some high-end quality features considering the fact that it is only €40-€50. Designed to be small and compact, the Vivy has a one-button operation; all you need to do is add the pod of your choice, and away you go.

Another feature that we love is the flow-through heater. This helps to get the water up to temperature immediately so that you are not waiting around for a coffee. Regardless of whether you like your coffee in a tiny cup or a big mug, the machine supports cups and mugs of all shapes and sizes. The INTELLIBREW design will help to create espressos, lattes, filtered coffee, macchiatos, americano, and up to 35 other coffee or hot drinks in moments. So pick one up in-store or online while they are still on sale!
