Subject: Trying to find a 54mm pod adapter for the Breville BES840XL. Suggestions?
 

Breville has kindly replaced my defective 830XL with the new 840XL model. A very nice machine, indeed. Thank you, to my friends at Breville!

My dilemma is that, while I make my espresso the "normal way" using coffee that I grind each time, my wife is not good with doing that. Our solution has been for her to use Lavazza pods. The 830XL had a pod holder, so everything was good, until now.

I just learned that Breville isn't making a suitable pod holder for the new machine. They suggested finding a "universal 54mm pod holder," but so far, I haven't been able to find one.

I've searched for 54mm pod holders and also looked for machines with 54mm portafilters, but that didn't work. I've also called several "specialty" vendors," but no luck there, either.

We have a lot of those Lavazza pods on hand and I'm not optimistic that my wife will be comfortable with the alternative, so I would really appreciate any solutions you might suggest.

Thanks in advance for your ideas.
