Before we answer the Nespresso matcha pod questions, you may be wondering about Nespresso pods in general.
Launching their first pod in 1986, Nespresso pods are not a new concept.
However, more and more people are finding themselves with a Nespresso machine in the home.
In fact approximately 4.8 million people have a Nespresso machine in their home.
This is why many people are now looking for pods outside of coffee, such as Nespresso matcha pods.
Are all Nespresso pods the same?
No not all Nespresso pods are the same. Although within a brand a pod will be the same as pods in its same batch and flavour. From brand to brand pods will be very different.
Firstly, some brands use compostable Nespresso compatible pods and not aluminium.
This is much better for the planet as it means that the Nespresso pods will break down in an industrial composter to nothing in 6 months. Even if a compostable pod ends up at landfill it will break down within 2 years.
Where as most aluminium pods end up in landfill where they can not be broken down. A huge 30,000 pods end up in landfill every minute and take 500 years to break down.
This is why it is so important to use a brand that uses compostable pods.

Can you use a Nespresso pod twice?
No, it is not recommend that use a Nespresso pod twice. This is because the coffee will become bitter and change the flavour profile of the drink as the coffee is over brewed.
For pods such as Nespresso matcha pods, it is also not recommend to use the pod twice as the matcha powder would have dissolved on the first use.
This means you would not get any of the heath benefits of matcha and the matcha would be watery and weak.
