Get them while you can!!!
They have now stopped stocking the Senseo compatible ones and an email to Lidl revealed they're not getting them back! So these might go the same way.

There's no better coffee than the Nespresso system or capsules which are well worth the 29p (upwards) each

The Lidl ones are the only compatibles I like. Haven't ordered from Nespresso in months since finding them

Okay, I prefer the purple Nespresso capsules but with the amount of coffee we drink, the price difference is too much

Heat.

just bought one of each kind since they were so cheap.

tried lungo 8 strength think it was ok but probably the worst compatible I have tasted.
big cup little cup is still the best compatible but nothing beats nespresso capsules

I bought a load of the Fine Coffee Co ones and I think these are my favourite - I'd rate them:

Fine Coffee co
Big Cup Little Cup
Coffee Pod
Carte noir
Lidl

I drink way too much coffee, these are perfect as a backup. I spend loads on the reall McCoy. I am going to save a bit on the lead up to Christmas by drinking these and hopefully cut back on my caffeine intake. I do not enjoy caffeine free.

Actually they are 89p but still a bargain. Reached 300 odd degrees when 1.79 , yet now half price they don't reach 100 degrees....

Ooo! Thanks for this. My Nespresso machine has been languishing in a cupboard since I nearly bankrupted myself maintaining my capsule habit. Ordered a bunch of Carte Noir from Groupon, but think I'll try these too, and the other companies suggested. Thanks for posting!!!

how do you make full cups of coffee with these please or can you only make espresso a?

Two buttons on the nespresso machine, one for small expresso cup and one for the bigger cups. It can also be set on both cases depending in cup size. All pods for Nespresso can make either size cup, so compatible should be same. Never as good as the real ones though.

Nice price, but not the same quality as Nespresso brand

yeah there is, there is coffee made from a proper espresso machine from fresh coffee. Nespresso good but you just need to try a cappuccino in Rome, Venice, etc., to realise how laughable your statement is.

With the flight and accommodation, how much does that make the coffee a cup?

You should really only use a lungo capsule for the larger cup (110ml extraction), using an espresso capsule (55ml extraction) is over extracting and tastes pretty vile.

Will these capsules fit the Dolce Gusto machine??

_If_ they are Nespresso compatible, def not!

In my opinion, after trying a number of Nespresso looky likeys, Carte Noir are the most similar, but why bother when Nespresso black are 29p each?

Utter rubbish. There's often 3 buttons, Ristretto, espresso and lungo. Most espresso capsules can be used for Ristretto but to make a lungo you need to use the lungo capsules. If you're making lungo with espresso capsules it will be disgusting and defeats the point of using the machine if you don't know how to use it properly.

You use these to make an espresso which you can then turn into an americano by adding hot water or latte/cappuccino by adding milk in varying degrees of frothiness. You will need at least two shots of espresso (and therefore 2 capsules) to make a decent cup size though.

You're the one talking rubbish mate. A lungo is supposed to be made with a regular espresso amount of coffee. That's the whole point it's meant to have s different flavour and composition as an espresso

Yes, it uses the same amount of coffee (one capsule in this case) but since the capsules are not the full 7g that is usually used most are not suitable for making a lungo. The ones that are generally have lungo in the name. The nespresso website gives details of which sizes can be made with each capsule. I've hit the lungo button by mistake with a normal capsule and it generally produces some insipid brown sick. The lungo capsules on the other hand work quite well.

Well this is about the price these capsules should be imo

damn , i was in there only yesterday to

Not as laughable as your comparison, which is so obviously not what the poster meant, yet you decided to try and have a poke anyway.

Wow, it's getting a little bit silly in here.

Over coffee as well. I thought fanboyism on HUKD was reserved for us gamers.

contemplating a coffee machine and was considering a Gaggia classic. I don't want to spend time roasting and grinding beans though. His much difference is there between a Nespresso pod and an espresso made by someone who just wants to put grounds in? I currently have a stove top Moka pot but I'm after a better crema

I had a gagia classic. It was brilliant and made really good espresso and I only ever used pre ground (normally Illy) but I got fed up of waiting for it to warm up and then cleaning it every morning so thought I'd try the nespresso. I sold the gaggia a couple of weeks later as the nespresso is brilliant. Completely hassle free, no mess and consistent quality. Probably not quite as good as the very best ones I made with the gaggia but close enough for it to replace it for me.

Agreed, while I *might* be able to do better with a proper machine, it'd be A) lots more hassle and B) Hit and miss. Nespresso gets you a good coffee for only marginally more trouble than making a glass of water.
