Looks like this ... abica-pods#
That's the problem with being in North America. We're pretty much down to 2 pod standards and ESE (which is common in Europe, I first saw it in use when I visited Paris in 2000) ain't one of them.

It's mind-blowing just how many pod/single serve systems there are, but here we only ever hear of Keurig (garbage), Tassimo (now owned by the Keurig people so it's getting killed off), and Nespresso.
CBTL/K-Fee/Caffitaly/Verismo tried to put a dent on the duopoly but that's been a failure too. Like trying to revive Blackberry OS.

OTOH I am surprised to still see Dolce Gusto machines and pods at Walmart... anybody here use this?
Friendly reminder #1: Kraprig cannot properly brew coffee. Get a Nespresso or a French press. You can thank me later.
Friendly reminder #2: Price matching is NOT the law. Never was, never will be. Nobody can stop you from shopping elsewhere.
