How to map a place that sells coffee pods/capsules? Now many of them are tagged as shop=coffee, but the wiki says “Shop focused on selling different kinds of coffee (coffee beans and coffee powder).” And pods are neither cofee beans or powder.
What’s the most common term in english, pods or capsules? A possible value could be shop=coffee_pod or shop=coffee_capsule
They all scream Cialde on the facade, the ones I’ve been in like 101Caffe (from France) sell more than just pods(capsules), to begin with most all have cialde(ground coffee in pressed paper filter pads), many sell (house) brand roasted beans, ground coffee, machines, even tea so if I do one I’ll give it a KISS , shop=coffee.
How can someone know if a shop=coffee doesn’t have pods, have both pods and beans/powder or they have pods only? Imagine someone going in a place looking for beans/powder and finding only pods or viceversa, looking for pods but finding only beans/powder.
I think our aim in OSM is to describe an enormous variety of shops found worldwide with a reasonable (limited) number of categories. It is certainly not our aim to describe every single item a shop is selling so a map user is never disappointed in finding something at that shop. Imagine someone going to a supermarket to buy coffee pods and find out they only have powder and beans. Should we then tag this supermarket as shop=supermarket + coffee_pod=no (+ a tag for all the other things you might expect in a supermarket but they don’t have)?
& wouldn’t we then have to also specify that you can get This Brand pods / capsules, as well as That Brand, & Some Other Brand, but the shop doesn’t carry Those Brands?
while brands may also be interesting for some people, the distinction that is also relevant is the kind of system (because there are products compatible with brand x which are not produced or endorsed by brand x and it would be wrong to add brand x)
