CBTL Beverage Capsules -- recycle and reuse (also Starbucks Versimo pods)

Step 3: CBTL Espresso Capsule & Verismo Espresso Pod

Picture of CBTL Espresso Capsule & Verismo Espresso Pod
The CBTL espresso capsule does not have a foil covered hole in the bottom like the tea and coffee capsules. Instead, it has small holes that the espresso is forced out of: espressed!

The Verismo has a different configuration at the bottom of the pod than any of the CBTL capsules even though it has the same size and shape.

If you put a Verismo pod into a CBTL machine, you will get an inordinate amount of grounds in your cup; therefore, you cannot use a Verismo pod in a CBTL, but you can use a CBTL capsule in a Verismo. I do not have a Verismo machine, but this is what I have been told. In the next step we will see why this is so.
