Caffeinated pod people 

Java fans won’t miss a single caffeine lift if Starbucks has anything to say about it. The coffeehouse franchise giant offers the foolproof Espresso Pod, a small, round bag that holds a premeasured 7 grams of roasted espresso coffee grounds for home use.

Pop the pod in Starbucks Barista Espresso Machine – no grinding, no measuring, no spilling, no thinking – and a quick shot of regular or decaf fills your demitasse whenever the urge strikes. The Pods cost about $5 for a package of 12 from Starbucks coffeehouses and online at www.starbucks.com.
