Bit of a heads up.

You can now get Nespresso compatible pods in a range of different strengths made by Carte Noir.

A little cheaper than the official pods at £2.79 for 10 in Tesco.

Only tried the 9 intensity ones so far, and I thought they were pretty good.

All in all, a nice alternative that's readily available in Tesco IMO.

Nice find! Heat added.

You can get genuine nespresso pods from £2.90 for 10 from nespresso stores. Hardly worth buying non genuine ones for 11p less. Cold for me.

Edited By: vee99 on Feb 18, 2014 15:06: incorrect price. was 18p, should be 11p

what do they market them as? worth it if you don't want to order loads or pay high p&p for a few.

You know how Tesco works, full price for a few weeks then they'll be on offer, two for one hopefully! Bet Tesco buy them in at 50p a box, scandalous really!

They sell Cafepod capsules that are Nespresso compatible for £2.75 for 10. Anyone know what they are like?
Xippi#6
I was hoping that the end of patent and the availability of generic pods would mean a price reduction but it doesn't seem to be the case just yet. The genuine Nespresso are very much the standard to beat atm, the aluminium pods give them a definite edge and the coffee quality is really good. These Cafe Noir are close but are still inferior. The Cafepod are poor imo - weak and watery.
If you can buy the genuine pods from nearby then do so but these Cafe Noir are available from Tesco - so much more accessible without the p&p.

Not forgetting that official pods get collected & recycled. Having said that I will try these. ....

I personally really like the CafePod ones - been buying for a while. Tried the Carte Noire the other day and they didn't fit in my machine properly and they don't have a lungo. CafePod are a bit cheaper in Tesco as well, think they come in at £2.75. I'm just pretty happy that I don't have to buy tons at a time anymore, they were always such a pain to store.

Why would anyone buy these over the genuine nespresso capsules? I know it's a saving of 1p per capsule but none of the third party capsules come close to the genuine ones IMO. If you want cheap coffee don't buy a nespresso. If you want nice, convenient espresso accept that it will cost 29p per capsule.

@ The people commenting on Genuine Nespresso capsules, first lets tell the truth about 29p, unless you live close to a shop ie you don't have to travel to it etc..because it would cost me either £22 on the train or £10 congestion, fuel costs, parking at £9 an hour in Regents Street, you will have to pay Nespresso's shipping costs £5.95 cheapest...So for total convenience these are great and more than 11p cheaper. Trolls don't ya just love em to death.

Or just order 200 or more for free delivery. And then it is 29p per pod and far superior to any of the third party pods.

@Nitro...so you've tried them? As the ristretto is superb, I agree the range is far superior but in taste, well that's subjective.
Sid Harper#13
They have long dates why wouldn't you order 200? Only fair they charge p&p on small orders. I hVe no issue with that. I will give these a go as a big name but all other imitation pods have been rubbish cafepod dualit and fine coffee club.

I have tried one of these - the strongest intensity (number 9 I believe) as a work colleague gave me some last week but I will be sticking to the genuine ones from now on. I agree Ristretto is by far the best but I always have Arpeggio and Indirya from India in the cupboard as well. On another note, these are not compatible with all nespresso machines which is why my colleague gave them to me. I believe his machine is a 'U' model so worth checking compatibility if you're still keen to save 1p!

Because they're nicer.

Because they're nicer.

And because you can pick them up in the supermarket rather than pay £5.95 deliv if order under £60 from Nespresso.

Is the rust retro the 30ml shot
chrisf74#18
Ristretto (stupid I phone)
nitro228#19
When I said Ristretto I was referring to the Ristretto flavoured nespresso pod. But Ristretto also means the 25ml shot. I go for the Ristretto flavoured capsule with an espresso sized shot (40ml).

At Lidl they cost £1.79 for 10 and it's really good, Bellarom Azzuro. And half of the time (on weekends) its Half price. I bought 5 box of 10 for 89p each !!!
