It turns out there are actually two different types of ESE pods, both from the same manufacturer, same label & similar description. It's hard to believe, and I'm sure someone will argue that it's not true, but it is. You'd think that E.S.E. would be a well-specified standard such that all of them are interoperable, but the evidence shows that is not the case.

Illy Caffe sells two different types of decaf ESE pods with similar labels (regular roast, green band.) One kind comes in a cardboard box with pods in individual foil packs. Those work great. The other - this one - comes in a metal box, with all the pods loose in the box. The pods in these two cases are designed & manufactured differently, despite their both being labeled as E.S.E. pods!

These - the ones that come in the metal can - do not fit properly in an E.S.E. espresso machine. I'm using a DeLonghi, which is a good machine and it's highly reviewed here. These particular ESE pods result in water running around the outside of the pod, such that all you get is hot water with a little bit of brown coloring - nothing like espresso! Their diameter is too small. I tried many times - including tamping them in very hard - and finally gave up. The only way to use these pods is to tear them open and put the loose coffee in the porta filter. Of course that defeats the purpose of using pods. If you're going to use loose coffee, you might as well buy a really good grinder, or buy properly pre-ground espresso coffee from a local shop.

To be clear - the other kind of Illy ESE decaf pods, which come in a cardboard box, do work correctly - in the same machine, same everything.

Of course, the coffee made from pods is not as good as what you can make with loose high quality coffee that is properly and freshly ground. But pods are a lot less hassle especially if you use your machine at work, or anyplace where a sink is not near by for cleaning up.

The coffee is...well, it's never going to be as good as something you buy fresh and grind yourself. But for canned coffee, it's reasonable. (Purchased in Jan 2011, the can was stamped for sale until Feb 2012. So it can be a year or older when you get it and still be considered salable. That's a bit scary.)

My espresso machine came with a box of the individually wrapped Illy ESE pods. I was dismayed at the quantity of non-recyclable waste from the wrappers, so if that bothers you also, these are slightly better. The nice reusable tin is filled with plain pods, not individually wrapped, so use them quickly once opened. If you use very infrequently, the box of individually-wrapped pods might be preferable.
