A coffee bean is a seed of the coffee plant. It is the pit inside the red or purple fruit often referred to as a cherry. Even though they are seeds, they are incorrectly referred to as 'beans' because of their resemblance to true beans.

Coffee pods (also called coffee pads) are pre-packaged ground coffee beans in their own filter.

A coffee capsule differs from a coffee pod in that the coffee is packed in a plastic or aluminum package instead of a paper filter, and it is usually designed for use with a single brand or system and is therefore not interchangeable with other systems. Buongusto can provide capsules that are compatible with all major brand systems.

Ground & Filter Coffee
Ground coffee is whole coffee beans that have been crushed to powder by friction.
Drip brewing, or filtered coffee, is a method which involves pouring water over roasted, ground coffee beans contained in a filter. Filter coffee is differentiated from ground coffee by a finer grind and the presupposition that it will be used in percolators or with filter papers primarily as opposed to in espresso machines or other serving methods.
