Title (EN) BEVERAGE MACHINE USING PODS THAT CONTAIN WHOLE BREWING ELEMENTS
(FR) MACHINE À BOISSON FAISANT APPEL À DES DOSETTES CONTENANT DES ÉLÉMENTS D'INFUSION ENTIERS
Abstract:
(EN) A beverage machine that brews beverages from a beverage pod is described. The pod is container with a top surface and a bottom surface connected by a sidewall that form a cylinder. The pod contains whole brewing elements that can be ground into sub-elements by the brewing system for brewing into a beverage. The pod is actuatable between an open state and a closed state by a breaking system of the beverage machine. In the closed state the brewing elements are contained and in the open state the elements are released. The pod includes a failure mechanism on the sidewall that is engineered to fail when the pod is actuated by a breaking mechanism of the beverage machine. When actuated the failure mechanism fails such that the beverage pod can be pulled into a top portion and a bottom portion to release the brewing elements.
(FR) L'invention concerne une machine à boisson qui permet d'infuser des boissons à partir d'une dosette de boisson. La dosette est un récipient comportant une surface supérieure et une surface inférieure reliées par une paroi latérale et formant un cylindre. La dosette contient des éléments d'infusion entiers qui peuvent être broyés en sous-éléments par le système d'infusion, destinés à être infusés dans une boisson. La dosette peut être actionnée entre un état ouvert et un état fermé par un système de cassure de la machine à boisson. Dans l'état fermé, les éléments d'infusion sont retenus et dans l'état ouvert, les éléments sont libérés. La dosette comprend un mécanisme de rupture sur la paroi latérale, qui est conçu pour se rompre lorsque la dosette est actionnée par un mécanisme de cassure de la machine à boisson. Lorsqu'il est actionné, le mécanisme de rupture se rompt, de sorte que la dosette de boisson puisse être tirée en une partie supérieure et une partie inférieure en vue de libérer les éléments d'infusion.
