Holders for coffee pod machines are faced every day with a problem of space (or lack thereof) in relation to the product they consume: coffee pod. The capsules take up considerably more space than a pack of coffee (beans or ground coffee, it doesn’t matter), and in order to save costs, we often buy them in large quantities, thus aggravating the problem.
The solution? Buy a coffee pod holder so you can always have them on hand. These coffee pod holders allow you not only to keep all your capsules accessible near the coffee maker but also to arrange them in an orderly and aesthetic way. So, if you are tired of piling up your coffee pods badly in the drawer or cupboard, take a look at our coffee pod holder shop, and remedy it right away.
Tips for buying a coffee pod dispenser
Coffee pod dispensers are really handy, but they can become useless if you don’t follow a few small tips before buying them.
The main thing to consider before buying a coffee pods dispenser is that it should be sized to fit the number of coffee pods you normally keep: if it’s too small, you’ll have to keep storing coffee pods somewhere else, and if it’s too big, you’ll have space to spare, and in modern kitchens, space is not exactly at a premium.
So we advise you to first assess how many capsules you usually have at home and adjust the size of your capsule container to that amount.
Then you should bear in mind that rotating capsule holders usually take up less space than static ones. However, the latter always offer all the capsules in view (interesting if you are one of those who have many different varieties of capsules at home).
In our catalogue, you will also find mounts for many types of capsules: steel, wooden, vertical, horizontal, wall, surface, but not all of them will fit well to your needs. You should be clear about where you are going to place it before you buy the coffee pod holder.
Finally, remember that each brand has its own capsule system, so the coffee pods in a Dolce Gusto coffee machine are not the same as those in a Nespresso, Illy or Tassimo coffee machine. You should always look for a capsule dispenser specific to your coffee machine’s brand. There are some, such as the dispenser box in the shop, which has dividers for different sizes (and formats) of capsules. But this is not the usual way.
Fortunately, there is now a wide range of coffee pods dispensers for all brands of coffee makers. At Amazon, you can find Tassimo, Nespresso or Dolce Gusto pods dispensers in various sizes (the usual range is between 30 and 60 coffee pods) and in various designs.
In our coffee pods dispenser shop, we offer only those that we have found most interesting, but you should know that the variety is enormous.
By the way: another alternative, if you are fond of crafts, is to make a capsule container yourself. Take a look at this ingenious example shown on video:
The best coffee pods dispensers: Prices
There is a selection of the best dispensers for coffee pods (always according to our criteria), and we leave you with the prices and offers completely updated to this day:
Dolce Gusto pod holder
We start with Dolce Gusto pod holders. The Dolce Gusto pod holders are usually made of wire because their coffee pods are larger than those of Nespresso. The horizontal capsule containers for Dolce Gusto take up too much space and are therefore less practical.
The only exception is the Dolce Gusto Coffeeboard, which is hung on the wall but has a slightly smaller capacity (24 units) than the others. It is made of acrylic glass and is perfect for taking up no space in your kitchen or on your worktop: you can hang it up like a painting. But the main drawback is precisely this: you have to drill holes in your wall or use one of these extra-strong glues specially designed for this type of DIY.
Tassimo pods dispensers
A Tassimo pods dispenser has the particularity that it must be adapted to the size of the T-Discs. Tassimo pods, as you know, are larger than Nespresso or Dolce Gusto pods. This is why a Tassimo pod holder usually has a vertical column arrangement, as placing the coffee pods horizontally would make it too large an instrument.
It is also true that the peculiar shape of the T-Discs (they are more elongated but flatter than other capsules) means that more can be stored in less space by stacking them on top of each other.
As you can see in our shop, you can find Tassimo pod holders with different numbers of columns. In this respect, your choice will depend on the number of different varieties of T-Discs you usually have at home.
Buy a Nespresso pods dispenser
Whether because of their elitist orientation or because of the support of large firms (especially in terms of advertising), the fact is that Nespresso pod holders are much more numerous and varied than those of other brands. If you are looking for a Nespresso pod holder, you will find dozens of different models to choose from.
There are quite a few wire Nespresso pods dispensers (similar to those of other brands), but also holders made of other materials, rotating holders, and even Nespresso pod holders made of high-quality materials (graphite, wood) were not only functionality and order but also aesthetics are paramount.
In short, buying a container of Nespresso capsules can take you almost longer than choosing a coffee machine.
An intrinsic quality of any Nespresso pod holder is its compact size: it usually allows many capsules to be stored in less space, as Nespresso capsules are smaller than those of other brands.
Senseo pods dispensers
And of course, Senseo also offers its own support for capsules, as you can see in the catalogue. This time is a model of the brand Tavola Swiss, black and metal, and with a very small size.
Best of all, the capsules are stored hermetically inside, so this dispenser eliminates any risk of altering the taste or aroma of your coffee by storing the capsules outdoors. Of course, this coffee pod holder for Senseo can also be used for any other ESE single-dose cups.
