10 Best Coffee Pod Holders 2020

Coffee pods aren’t exactly pretty when stored in their original packaging, nor is it practical.

From capsules tumbling out of the kitchen cupboards when you go to get a tin of beans out, to the box falling apart once it starts to get empty, you’ve probably started wishing there was another solution.

Don’t even get us started on not realising there is only one pod left until you go to make the morning brews.

A coffee pod capsule holder will solve all of these issues, from easy access and good style to keeping a stock check.

The one you purchase will depend on the type of pod you use for your machine – each brand has capsules which are a different shape and size. You will also have to choose where you want the holder to be placed.

These are our picks of the best coffee pod holders and stands at the moment, to help make that decision a bit easier and allow you to pick the more trustworthy products.

The Best Coffee Pod Capsule Holders

1.
StormBrew Dolce Gusto Coffee Pod Rotating Holder Rack

Specifications

  • Brand: Dolce Gusto
  • Pod Type: Any
  • Number of Pods: 24

This holder can store up to 24 pods at any one time, and is split into four different sections so you can keep all varieties separate for easier access.

It rotates 360 degrees too, which means you don’t have to reach around awkwardly and ruin the display in order to reach the variety you have at the weekend. The metal construction is sturdy, so will remain stable as you remove pods and twist it all.

The chrome finish should match certain parts of your pod machine, and the rest of your kitchen too. Complete with a non-slip finish, it is reliable as well as stylish.

Reasons to Buy

  • Stable base and turning
  • Can split pods in terms of variety

Reasons to Avoid

  • Pods can occasionally not drop down smoothly

2.
barista & Co Corral Coffee Pod Capsule Holder

Specifications

  • Brand: Nespresso
  • Pod Type: Any
  • Number of Pods: 80

A slightly messier, blase ‘throw all the pods in the basket’ look can actually look pretty good on your kitchen worktop.

That is the idea with this basket. It can hold up to 80 Nespresso pods, which makes it one of the largest capacity options, perfect for anyone who loves a large selection and choice. The open top means you can easily select your coffee of the day, and it also won’t take you hours to properly stock it up.

You can choose from gold, copper or chrome finish to complement your kitchen, and the plated stainless steel means it is rust-resistant, so can be placed freely anywhere without worrying that a dribble of water or any steam will affect it.

It is also a really nice basket for holding any other bits and bobs, like cutlery and utensils, which could be good for anyone who wants every storage container to match. Our only gripe is that the advertised 80 pod capacity depends on the pod type – you may find it is only for around 40-60 Originals depending on how full you want it.

Reasons to Buy

  • Colour choices
  • Anti-rust

Reasons to Avoid

  • Capacity depends on pod type

3.
Taylor & Brown® Tassimo T-Disc Capsule Holder

Specifications

  • Brand: Tassimo
  • Pod Type: T-Disc
  • Number of Pods: 32

The T-Discs can be one of the trickiest pods to store. Their flatter, wider shape means most baskets which hold coffee capsules are simply not suitable. But this one allows you to stack them all in sets without any mess.

Up to 32 pods can be held at once, and there are two sections so you can split up different flavours. You can easily see how many you have left at a glance so can order in plenty of time. The base is stable and also lined with felt, so it won’t damage your bench top.

When it is time for a brew, just reach one pod from the bottom so it doesn’t mess up the stack either. The high shine finish is the perfect complement for your coffee machine, and it can also hold the milk pods.

Reasons to Buy

  • Anti-scratch so will stay looking like new
  • Easy to access pods from bottom

Reasons to Avoid

  • Can be tricky to get some pods out of bottom

4.

It holds 40 Nespresso pods, and they can be arranged however you best feel for organisation, whether it be by flavour or for a splash of colour.

As it rotates, they are all easy to access. The black colour is perfect to match any decor, machine or other appliances, and the quality is good which should keep it stable and spinning for a good few years.

Reasons to Buy

  • Holds a good amount of pods
  • Rotates

Reasons to Avoid

  • Capsules don’t always line up perfectly

6.

It can hold varieties such as Roma, Arpeggio, and Capriccio to Livanto or Ristretto.

Coffee Pod Stand Buying Guide

Design

You can buy pod holders or storage in various designs.

Ordinary stands are tall and slim, perfect for taking up less space on your kitchen counter. They are vertical and the pod removed from the bottom, so those above drop down for easier access.

Drawers can sit under your pod machine, or possibly another appliance such as a microwave if large and strong enough. The idea is that they take up little space, sitting under the machine which would be there anyway.

Wall-mounted pod holders are great for taking up no bench space at all (although it will need wall space!) They are often more expensive, but can usually also hold cups and other bits and bobs.

Number Of Pods

How many pods do you have at a time?

The stands often hold anywhere between ~20 and 50 pods at any one time, but if you buy more in bulk you may need to store excess elsewhere. 

Also look at the designs if you like to hold different flavours. Some have sections which will allow for easier access.

Price

This can very from under £10 to almost £50.

Those which hold more will often be a bit pricier, as will drawers opposed to baskets.

FAQs

Do I need to buy a specific one for my pods?

If you have a Nespresso, Tassimo or Dolce Gusto, you will need to buy a stand or holder which accommodates not only the brand of pod, but your specific type of pod too.

This will be very important as the shape and size of the pods varies widely. If you want something which can hold various varieties, a basket will be your best bet.
