Coffee Capsules

Capsule systems for making coffee are a newer method than the traditional coffee handle machines, and are well fitted for home or small office uses. They offer a simpler, cleaner way for producing quality espresso and other coffee and tea beverages. Essentially, capsules which contain premeasured amount of sealed ground coffee are inserted in the compatible capsule system machines. The machines then pierce the top part of the capsule to allow the water to flow through. Following that, hot water is forced through the capsule with high pressure, extracting the beverage to the cup. Each capsule is used once and then disposed of.

Nespresso System for Coffee Machines

The Nespresso system is a popular capsule system developed by Nespresso. The aluminum capsules produced by Nespresso are filled with coffee grounds shortly after the beans are ground, and are then sealed. Nespresso promises a high quality flavor when they limit the expiration date of a Nespresso capsule to up to 9 months from the roasting stage.

Caffitaly System for Coffee Machines

Caffitaly

Caffitaly

The Caffitaly System (or Caffita System) is one of the capsule systems for brewing coffee beverages such as espresso, and other beverages as tea. In order to use capsules of the Caffitaly system one has to use the dedicated coffee machines designed for those capsules. The system was developed by the Italian company Gaggia. It is not marketed in the US as far as I know, and generally lacks in marketing compared to Nespresso, Dolce Gusto or Tassimo.

Gaggia is also a coffee machine making company, so naturally Gaggia machines, such as the Gaggia K111d home coffee maker are compatible with the system. However, other machine makers such as Saceo with their Saceo Office machine are also compatible.

One of the important aspects of a capsule system is the technology behind its capsules. With Caffitaly the core of the technology is the use of two small filters inside the capsules. Water is forced with pressure through the first filter allowing an even contact with the tightly packed 8 grams (or 0.28 ounces) of coffee grains. When it passes through the second filter, the coffee is extracted and exits as a full-bodied, dense espresso, blanked with a consistent, compact cream.

I put together for you a list of most of the Caffitaly compatible coffee machines. Unfortunately this capsule system isn’t marketed in the US as far as I know, but other great systems are the Nespresso capsule system and the Tassimo capsule system.
