Each pod is made differently for the perfect drink
What Makes the Pods so Smart?

Every pod contains  judiciously selected ingredients and different drinks need different amounts of pressure to release their full flavour. For example, an espresso needs high pressure to release that perfect aroma and taste and the milk needs less. So the pods are designed to regulate the pressure so that whatever drink you decide to choose, it’s made just the way it should be.
