Ode To A Pod From A Coffee Snob


What would life be without the pod
From which my coffee doth arrive?
Of all of the cons considered mod
It’s my favourite ogive
For without the pod how could I
Ensure my daily caffeine
Without effort and commitment
Of methods so slow they make me cry?
But I suppose they are still less obscene
Than granules freeze-dried and instant

    Strange, I mentioned coffee pods in my latest this morning. it was definitely not an ode though.

      I share your scepticism, but all the cool kids drink their coffee from pods these days and I didn’t want to be left out…

      Fancy meeting you here Mr Bryntin. I held back on buying a Keurig pod machine til they went down in price after the initial ‘excitement’. (That is my M.O. Snap up former hot trends, I am wearing Zumba wear as I write this) What? Just press a button for coffee and then throw away yet more plastic? Sign me up! Now our Keurig takes up space on our counter with other, less cool, appliances. We barely use it. Pushing buttons gets old, though it is impossible for me to pass an escalator and push the emergency stop button to let chaos ensue.

        I am here to hopefully get some of James’ cool to rub off on me. All I’m getting is coffee though. (I possibly started that)

    Very funny. My mother brought back some Starbucks instant back from England some years back. Still hasn’t caught on here in Canada, but my wife and I LOVE instant, for the convenience etc. We are a nation of coffee snobs . . .

      I used to drink instant for the convenience but now I use pods because they’re just as convenient and quite a lot more expensive. Which is exactly as stupid as it sounds…

    haha, i was drawn to pods for almost the same reason I like vinyl records, the expense and the Inconvenience.
