The original nespresso pods are better than these for the environment as they are made from aluminium and can be recycled. These are plastic and cannot be recycled.

Not to mention the taste is a lot better on the nespresso pods.

These are actually recyclable and Starbucks has a recycling program for them (they have partnered with Cycleon who specialise in this kind of thing). The foil and plastic used is easily separable and both recyclable. You just need to pick up a recycling bag from your nearest Starbucks store (this includes locations in shopping centres).

The Nespresso capsules are very hard to recycle as they have plastic inside of capsule which makes it not recyclable at normal places and consumes a lot of energy while starbucks are just plastics

I don't quite understand your statement. You say the Nespresso capsules are difficult to recycle because they contain some plastic but the Starbucks ones are easier because they are plastic?

The Nespresso pods are recycled directly by Nespresso and you can either drop them at a store or one of those collect plus stores that is local to you in a bag provided by Nespresso. I have never tried to recycle the Starbucks pods but will do in future with the link provided in dealsjockey's post.

Neither of the above negate the fact that the Nespresso pods are by and large better tasting than the Starbucks ones.

This comes from someone who has a Nespresso machine, both types of capsules and understands the economics of buying capsules vs aeropress.

£2.50 for 10 is a decent price.
Good to hear they're recyclable.
I'd given up on non-Nespresso branded capsules but Starbucks Espresso ground/beans is OK so I'll give these a try for 2/3 the price of Nestle capsules.
Regardless of their recyclability, all these pods have to be the most expensive way imaginable to make a cup of coffee! Bit like printers, sell a reasonably priced machine then rip people off for the consumables
Gotten one today.

At least its better priced then having expensive Costa/Starbucks at the Coffee shop and these specially nespresso own branded does not taste over roasted
How are these compared to say a bean to cup system?

Ive had a tassimo, nespresso. Aeropress and have now got a delonghi bean to cup

Il let you decide which is better.....




The nespresso did make a nice brew but very expensive pods, tassimo was ok but again expensive, the aeropress was better than both of these but a bit fiddly especially with grinding own beans etc. The bean to cup is king though
Regarding recyclability, if your council collects yoghurt pot and milk bottle plastics with your recycling, then these should be acceptable too. We used to use a knife to remove the foil top and grounds and then rinseand pop them in the recycling wheelie bin (we're lucky as we can chuck all recycling - paper, card, glass, tins, plastic - into one bin). Although this kinda defeats the object of the convenience factor of these systems, although you don't have to do it each time, just when the machine's collection bin is full.

However, personally, have switched to Percol compostable ones now via Amazon.

Nice to hear someone actually bothers to remove traces of non reclyable components of reclyclable things. The amount of people that just chuck everything in the recycling and it ends up at the landfill as they can’t be bothered to wash it for 5 seconds.
Just my opinion obviously but these really don't taste that nice compared to my usual Arpeggio and Roma (I tried the Guatemala and Espresso ones I think). Also they leaked badly in my innissia machine due to the crappy plastic not making a proper seal when engaged. Never again!
Got a few on these fo' free when they initially released them, and they taste horrid! The Carte Noire ones (now branded L'or) are much better - in my opinion anyway :-)

I agree. These have an awful taste, and not much cheaper than real nespresso ones.
