Café Direct Nespresso capsules from Sainsburys only £2 for 10 assorted strengths

LocalFound 3rd Jan 2015
Sainsburys giving £1 off packs of 10 assorted Café Direct Nespresso capsules.

You get a chance to try all 4 strengths of capsule from Café Direct and save money at the same time!

Means it's only 20p per capsule instead of 30 - 40p from Nespresso or even 27p for the Lidl own brand capsules!

Could be national, found then in the South West at both Penzance and Truro stores...

The lidl ones are £1.79 for 10 so closer to 18p each rather than 27p. Still might be useful to someone.
Seem to be OK, had a couple of packs, not as good as original. Don't bother with the Taylor's ones though, they kept failing.
I must admit that I like the Lidl ones better than the Cafe Direct ones, but wanted to try all the strengths, problem solved! @Ranek, sorry, you are right about the Lidl price. The best priced ones on the market!
The problem I found with the lidl ones are that they can leak. You end up with half a cup of coffee, took out the tray and it was swimming. I know its these as I made one again with a proper capsule with no tray and then again with the lidl own. The lidl one just rained out onto the worktop


Shame as they tasted really nice. Had to bite the bullet and buy proper caps
Btw that was aldi own ristretto
I don't know whether they are any better or not (I don't drink coffee) but ASDA have the Carte Noire capsules at 2 for £4 making the capsules 20p each. groceries.asda.com/pro…424
Nespresso is all about the coffee in my opinion, you may pay a pound more for a sleeve but hats off to them it's good coffee and tastes great you can't compare a nespresso capsule to Aldi but we all like different things......
Aldi ones were bad, think they stopped selling them now. Lidl Ristretto is fine.

How do the lidl ristretto compare to Nespresso ristretto? Are they as good?
Taylors capsules also 10 for £2

For some reason though, using Lidls bellaroma espresso in a used aluminum nespresso capsule (you cover the top with foil - plenty of guides on how to do it) tastes better than the nespresso capsules I have tried (and I have gone through 70 of them now).
Ok tried these and have to warn others off them. Totally *unethical* pods. These have only 5.3g per capsule of coffee rather than the 7g and taste like watery slop. A TOTAL RIPOFF.

Cheers for the update. There's really no substitute for original capsules. Costly if you drink as much as us but we spread the load between a clever coffee dripper and a portafilter machine.

​seems a bit OTT in my opinion @trampjuice. They may be lean on coffee (haven't checked) but I'm still using mine and enjoying them... I think they taste better than the cafépod ones from Tesco anyway... Hadn't thought them weak though, and certainly not a ripoff IMHO...
Any review sites regarding these pods has exactly the same opinion ; watery slop.
Having bought these capsules and been utterly appalled. I really do think It's far less hassle, cheaper and tastier to simply buy a decent brand of espresso, and refill some of the the aluminum nespresso capsules with it.
You can buy some of the reputed best, and most expensive coffee in the world amazon.co.uk/dp/…J5M grind it and at £12per 100g /18 cups = about 70p per capsule, or you can buy some decent brand espresso and refill for 10p per capsule. Point being - once you learn how to refill and put a little effort into making them, why tolerate watery slop at 20p/capsule? .

Some of the amazon reviews are amusing.. amazon.co.uk/dp/…NX5

These are just hot water with a bitter aftertaste of capsule.

awful
these are absolutely terrible. Not only do they not actually fit my nespresso machine (the old version fit at a push but the new less packaging ones not at all) but they taste awful. this is not espresso! it is watery , bitter, boring slop. do not waste your money.
