I'm new to ESE pods, but this was a little weak compared to regular pre-ground Illy espresso and the Intenso ESE pods.
Prepare authentic Italian espresso with pre-measured E.S.E. pods. Simply insert a pre-measured, perfectly ground and tamped pod into an E.S.E.-compatible espresso machine and you have rich, robust espresso in less than 30 seconds. Each pod is individually wrapped to assure maximum freshness with every cup.
