Spin Lathes: I like the spirit of reuse, but these pods are made from low quality, non recyclable plastic which are not meant for more than one use, especially at such high temps. This is the equivalent of someone telling you to reuse your old plastic water bottles. Yeah it's saving pennies but A) it's jeapordizing your health and B) you'd save more money by doing it right the first way; IE brewing actual coffee the old fashioned way with less waste, less cost and higher quality, or in the other case, carrying a high quality reusable water bottle and filling it from a clean tap. Rant.

H Cat: yes, your knife technique was scary to watch.

daveknow: Nice video. Thanks. But ALWAYS cut away from you. (go volunteer at an emergency room for a weekend and see the domestic kitchen carnage. very bloody)

Andrew Teeluck: Nice video, thanks! I just bought a Verismo a few days ago and am looking for ideas. One thing though: before making the espresso, you should warm up the machine first. That's why only the espresso light is on initially when you power up. At 2:35 you should've run it with water, leaving out the pod, to pump hot water through and into your glass. That way the piping in the system is nice and hot, and so is your glass! Then you toss the water from the glass (put it back in the reservoir if you don't want to waste water), put in the pod and make the espresso at optimum temperature. :)

How To: I also made a video just like this, on how to save money

Tracy Vanessa Brown: Thank you Brandi! This machine is great...except for these expensive pods! You saved me. Tip - I noticed how carefully you cut and shaped the foil. I learned 2 things - Use no more than shown in your video cuz it bunches around the edges and might get stuck and the second is to use heavy duty aluminum foil cuz the other is too flimsy. Much appreciation for this video. You made my day and my budget! Next question -- How do I get it to stop spitting diagonally out the side when making a cup of espresso? 

CatEyeFever: Wish there wasn't so much noise in the video.

Fevy Valencia: Thank you for the video, I just wanted to mention that the option to clean out the machine is the option used on this video. You have to first rinse out any previous residue using the first cycle and then you can make your coffee. 

Dg Vet: BTW I applauded the video but note to self, that shot was a cycle rinse shot. Notice the one green light, all three should be on when the system is ready. but overall great tip!!!

man4man7110: Can you do this for the coffee pods too or just Expresso .

Gabriel White: is there any health risk to reheating the plastic pods? 

richard salazar: Thank's your method works well.

27kjh: How is it possible you are saving two to three dollars a drink? That doesn't make sense.

Kalie Isaacs: For how long do you reuse the pods? 

Jeff Gilchriest: Love the singing from the little one!

Clarissa Mc Kenzie: Brandi, you are AWESOME! This Mom thanks you very much! Been thinking about doing this and I appreciate it!

baratacus: This is awesome that you can use any coffee you want or espresso that you want. Tried the foil method with the Tassimo (had to cut the UPC scanner code and put it on the foil too) the way it was designed the top didn't clamp so the foil would blow off under pressure.I never attempted it on the Verismo.Keurig only makes low pressure brewed coffee.I got one when Tassimo stopped carying starbucks,the low pressure Keurig system could not brew a comparable cup of coffee, could not make espresso.

CdubRoxy: Love this!!!! I am on a tight budget so I never want to buy new pods. This is a life saver. Thanks:)

Eric Choi: Thank you Brandi! This is awesome!

Reina8292: Thank you!!!!!

Ken Rowlan: We just tried this and it worked great. Thanks! Is there a suitable milk pod substitute you've found too?

Phien-An Nguyen: When you first turn the machine on, the espresso button is for rinsing, not brewing. Nice post though.

Mitch Hancock: Then you should get a Keurig and the filter they sell for exactly this purpose.

MiniMe Designs: are you sure it doesnt break the machine?

Brandi Pachter: Marcelo, regular brew works fine. It's hard to tell the exact reuse times, because I usually just rinse and throw them back in the same container. I know it's at least 4-5, though. Then, the bottom hole begins to bow out a little. Hope this helps! :-)

Marcelo Lopez: Also, I realize the demonstration uses an espresso pod, but has anyone tried this with the "regular brew" coffee pods?

Mitch Hancock: How do you save $2-$4 per drink when the Starbucks pods for the Verismo are $1 a pod? O.o

kwerner: Cool demo, but you added the pod before running the rinse cycle.

Brandi Pachter: You're welcome! So glad you can use it!

Marcelo Lopez: Anyone reuse a pod more than once ? If so, how many reuses (given you clean it out each time) can you reasonably expect to get out of a pod ? I wonder what sort of filter material is used at the bottom, that it too could be replaced by suitable material (folded bleached paper filters?).

Brandi Pachter: Mitch, each drink requires 2-4 shots of espresso, depending on what size/type you make.

Hari Namballa: some people like strong coffee, people use 2 pods per serving.. she really showed us a way... give her the credit buddy... peace...

Keith Morris: Are you still getting the same quality of espresso shot after you re-use the pod with foil? I would be sold on a verismo if I could repack these pods with my own espresso and not be giving up taste. How do you like your verismo overall? KFM

Sheri Kwong: Thank god I got the Verismo as a gift... I wouldn't recommend buying it yourself. The upkeep of the product and constant restocking of the pods is just too much. I have successfully reused pods in the past however I found it too much work for a simple cup of coffee. The Verismo itself makes coffee extremely slowly. The company lacks the support for the product incase of problems with the machine. I ended up having to buy a cheap coffee machine instead... which actually works better...

Sheri Kwong: I've tried it. Works. Just use the expresso button at startup to clean up the machine, and when all three lights are lit up after, just press the coffee pod button.

Hari Namballa: Thanks Brandi, you are the best.. Hate Startbucks sadistic ethics... They made a few superb blends recently... 3 Regions, Kati Kati and did not get them in Versismo's yet. I drag myselves to the store to get a cup of coffee... your tip helped to not only save a few bucks, but also my fav blend at my door step. Thanks for your valuable tip. Wish Starbucks realizes and help their customer base with refillable pods soon.

Brandi Pachter: So glad I could help!
