And now, there’s a new product directly from the brand that is perfect for coffee drinkers. The new Instant Pod machine is a two-in-one single brew coffee and espresso maker that not only works with K-Cup coffee and tea pods, but also with Nespresso capsules. It’s even compatible with re-usable pods, so you can cut down on plastic waste.
The new machine has a choice of six different cups sizes, ranging from a single 2-ounce shot of espresso to a 12-ounce travel mug of coffee. It is available now exclusively at Walmart and Walmart.com for $119.
While the water tank is large enough to hold two liters at a time, the machine itself is quite slim, measuring only 13 inches tall and 7.2 inches wide, so it will fit beneath standard cupboards.
If you end up purchasing the new Instant Pod, you’ll want to make sure you have K-Cups and Nespresso capsules on hand.
There are multiple brands of K-Cups, including McDonald’s McCafé, Green Mountain Coffee, Starbucks and Lipton. You can find K-Cups at retailers nationwide and online via Amazon and stores like Bed, Bath and Beyond.
You can get Nespresso cups directly from Nespresso or from Amazon. You can also buy Starbucks Nespresso capsules at Sam’s Club, and just in time for fall, a Nespresso representative tells us their popular pumpkin spice cake capsules will be returning to their website on Sept. 2.
One note about the Nespresso pods: There are two different kinds, so make sure you’re ordering the correct ones for the Instant Pod. You’ll need “original,” which look similar to a K-Cup. The other pods are for the Nespresso Vertuo machine and are more round and will not work with the Instant Pod.
Will you be adding the new Instant Pod to your kitchen?
