Starbucks Verismo Pods vs. Competition
UPDATE: Posted my Full Review of the Starbucks Verismo 580 Brewer

Size matters, especially when you are storing a bunch of these in the cabinet. Remember, these pods, capsules, and cups can only be used in its own machine. You can't use a Verismo in a Nespresso, nor a nespresso in a CBTL. Dolce Gusto looks big, but it won't work in a K-Cup machine. You get it…...
Starbucks Verismo vs. Nespresso, vs. K-Cup, vs Nescafe Dolce Gusto vs. CBTL
As you can see from the picture, the Verismo pod is a little bigger than a CBTL and a little smaller than a Dolce Gusto pod.

The smallest is definitely the Nespresso capsule that is packed with coffee, and doesn't need to leave room for any other type of mixing/brewing, like tea, milk or hot chocolate.
One of our readers commented that it was most like the CBTL capsule; without actually seeing it in person, I thought it was more like the Dolce Gusto….. wow, was I wrong.
