I used empty capsules to fill my own coffee and brew it using a Nespresso machine. I would say the result largely depends on the coffee you use, but not the capsules itself. It takes several tries until you get the right amount of coffee into one capsule (I had to stuff one brand of coffee quite tight to get a crema at all), and the amount differs very much ...

Over-extraction occurs when you run too much water through and you will be able to see this as the coffee turns pale and eventually you will end up with almost clear (or barely tinted) water running through.

If there were any, it would be a form of coating or impregnation — and then I doubt the possibility, for it would ...

I did a quick search and didn't find anything either. If it was very serious there would articles about it all over the place. It would be a natural clickbait for the newspapers. "Coffee Recall - Read All About It" If it is as described then it sounds benign from a health perspective and the notice is the company covering itself from legal action.

If saving money is a priority, you can get a single-serving capsule coffee machine for about $20. This will do fine for a cup or two a day. You have to add water to the machine before brewing each cup, which may be a bit repetitive for more than a few cups a day. It does, however ensure you put fresh water in there for each brew as opposed to letting the ...
