Verismo® Compatible Pods: CBTL Capsules Are a Great Alternative

We like to imagine we’re your favorite coffee chain, but in breezy SoCal, we know there’s this other popular place you might pop into occasionally. Yes, we’re talking about Starbucks and its signature Seattle-style java. Specifically, if you brew your coffee at home, there’s a possibility you own a Verismo® System from Starbucks.

Verismo fans often look online for Verismo-compatible pods that can save them some money while still delivering refined taste and consistency. Are you on the hunt for Verismo espresso pods or coffee pods? Check out coffee and espresso capsules from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, one of the best-kept secrets in the community. Until now!

About Verismo® Systems 

Many coffee chains, including The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, have created their own single serve brewing machines that conveniently fit on the kitchen counter. Starbucks unveiled its brewing system, dubbed the Verismo® System, in 2012. Fans of Starbucks adore the systems themselves, but reordering pods for the brewing machine can get pricey right away if you enjoy multiple cups of coffee a day.

Verismo Compatible Pods from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® 

When you’re not set on a Starbucks drink but want to use your Verismo system, why not venture out and try other brands of coffee and espresso capsules?

That’s precisely what life hack sharer and YouTube product reviewer Sean Cannell set out to do. He experimented with capsules from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and was blown away by the results. 

In his video review, Sean notes that “CBTL pods offer a great variety of flavors and styles for drip coffee and espresso.” He demonstrates how effectively our espresso capsules work inside a Verismo® system and singles out his favorite flavors: the Continental Espresso and the Italian Espresso.

Sean appreciates that capsules from The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf are wallet-friendly and that customers can make the most of further discounts. If you purchase 10 boxes of 10 pods, you can save 20% and take advantage of free shipping with the code CAPPOD10
