Set the bamboo holder on the counter, then place a Vertuo pod inside the holder. This technique will work for both single and double shots, so choose whichever size pod you have on hand. Pour a scoop of finely ground coffee into the pod.
Place a foil seal on top. Use the tip of your finger to adhere the foil seal to the pod. As long as the foil completely seals the top of the pod, it will work. Don't worry if the seal is not perfectly even.
