Always Release Your Nespresso Pods After Every Brew
The freshness of the grounds in a Nespresso pod is released and brewing a cup of coffee. However, it is crucial to release the pod into the attached container after.
If you skip this step, bacteria can accumulate in the warm, soggy coffee grounds, eventually leading to mold buildup, depending on how long you leave it trapped in the chamber.
Moreover, you'll want to empty the container dedicated to used pods as often as possible and occasionally spray some water over the metal spikes to further discourage mold growth.
