Using the Briel Chamonix machine I purchased from Amazon, I have produced delicious lattes using these pods. The smell of the Espressione pods (regular and decaf) when opened is incredible - dark, rich roasts. FYI - the pods are produced in Italy, which is a good sign. Also, each pod has a handy paper "tab" so that you can remove it from your machine without burning your fingers. I compared these pods to Starbucks espresso pods (regular and decaf), and the Espressione are my favorite. Only one warning: ..
I've purchased both the Espressione Espresso (classic) and the 100% Arabica. My vote is definitely with the 100% Arabica. The flavor has more bite and flavor (much more like European coffee than American).
