Running water through more than once will make the coffee a bit bitter. Probably fine for the machine.

I'm struggling to appreciate the worthwhile difference. It's just the size of pod by the looks of it. So yes, double dipping is far cheaper than a new machine.

Personally, I find that most blends are fine being topped up Americano style, or as I mostly do, with microwaved milk. Does it just as I like.

Hi Ian
+2
I have also been using the Microwave technique for the milk for some years.
This gives the added advantage of warming the cup, and also saves me washing a seperate frother

Yes. It helps dilute the taste of the raspberry
