image of Neo Espresso podNow I have no particular axe to grind here, but come on...

This brand of coffee pods to fit the Nespresso machines has come up with the wonderfully stupid idea of over-packaging its product in what must be the most imbecilic attempt to convince consumers that it keeps the coffee flavor in... Yes, you tear open the plastic, wasteful and probably hard-to-recycle pouch and out pours a smell of coffee. “You see, it tries to say, if we didn’t do this all the coffee flavor would disappear! Aren’t we clever?!”

If anything, it’s the opposite that happens: if the coffee can be smelled before the pod is inserted into the machine and made, it means you’re getting less flavor going into the coffee drink itself (whether to any significant degree or not is another kettle of fish). Of course, it’s also possible that both the original and the copycat brand have pods that release an odor, but the only one that tells you that the odor once inside the pod is no longer there is the copycat.

English-speakers with poor taste in jokes will understand the title...
