For those of you who enjoy the convenience of Nespresso coffee machines, it was recently brought to my attention LIDL is now selling their own branded capsules (Bellarom) for Nespresso.
There are 3 different types: Ristretto (intensity 10), Classico (intensity 4), and Lungo (intensity 5).

Usually I stay away from cheaper brands simply because I feel their taste doesn't match Nespresso's but these actually surprised me.

It appears this is going as a trial product at the moment and it'd be a shame if it would up being discontinued so I thought I'd put the word out.

Which store did you find these? Stock is different store to store.
#2
why does it appear to be a trial? they are sitting alongside other coffee as normal
#3
@brilly I mean trial in the sense that they're checking how the market reacts to the product, pricing, etc.
Ofc if it doesn't generate enough profit, chances are it'll go away.

@funkyphonics If not in ANY store, than in most stores I'd imagine. Even the smallest store in my area stocks it.

No, I meant that it's a new product that will most definitely not go away and will be there always and forever regardless of sales. :{

erm... so basically its a new product and the trial thing is an assumption or the other way round a 'fact' on the level that every new product is a trial?

They taste awful. I've tried the blue box (no taste) and the black box (cigarette ash mixed with hot water). Unfortunately, I thought they were a good price so bought 3 boxes of each.

So you buy a stupidly overpriced pod machine because you saw george clooney in an advert, and then cheap out on the actual pods themselves?

Guessing you also bought a 128GB iPod just to listen to 128kbs MP3s on £2 Aldi headphones.

I don't know why people bother to put deals on here when all they get is pathetic comments. The only useful one was the brief review of the actual product.

Worth a try, everyone's coffee tastes are different.

Heat added.

They are not exactly a 'new' product except in the UK. Lidl have been selling them for about a year in Europe. I tried a box of the Lungo variety in my Inissia which does have problems with some of the, alleged, compatables . They work OK in it primarily because the machine does not have to puncture the plastic capsule. There are dozens of holes already in the base for the water to enter. The top is aluminium foil and is 'waffled' by the machine with no problems.

Taste is simply not as good as Nespresso originals. They are not as strong and the flavour is closer to supermarket own brand coffees than it is to the Nespresso capsules. I won't be dumping the remaining Bellarom Lungo but I won't buy any more of them. Now that I know that they won't damage my machine I might try the Classico and (maybe) the Ristretto varieties.

I don't agree with the comments about buying a "stupidly overpriced pod machine" because the Nespresso system does produce first class coffee with no hassle but it does puzzle me why someone would buy the machine and then complain about the price of the capsules. Did they not check the price of the consumables before buying the machine? That seems to me to be a basic requirement for buying many things these days including inkjet printers, laser printers, cars...

i bought a box of ristretto pods in Kingsteignton store (Devon). Using them in Nespresso machine at work. I like them. Better than Dualit pods from Sainsburys. Carte Noir pods from Sainsburys about the same. Wish I'd bought more than one box (offer posted a few weeks ago).

Is that a comment on the pods? Do you mean buy the "real" pods or buy raw coffee?
#16
I bought a pack of each to try with my new Inissia machine this weekend.

They're fine, pretty much, but I did find that there's more leakage with the Lidl pods than with the official ones (more water ends up in the thing at the back / behind than in your actual cup).
#17
Highly rated, Lungo being the best. Its still near 400% mark up compared to standard ground coffees.
#18
Excellent for the money

Using these pods in my Krupps Pixie Nespresso machine broke it; the prongs that normally pierce the Nespresso pods were bent out of shape by using these pods.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Lidl customer services have so far been quite unhelpful.
#20
I thought I'd try these out too. I concur with other people's problems. More water leaks out the back of these Lidl Bellarom pods than ends up in the cup, and causes the drip tray in the machine to overflow. I'm returning the rest of the unfinished pack to Lidl. They seem don't fit my Krups Inissia properly.The Ristretto tastes ok, but Costco's DualitNX ones don't leak at all, and they are cheaper than Lidl's at only about 16p per pod, and they taste quite nice too.
