Dreadful things. Don't buy coffee on price - bad mistake. Just about the worst we've tried. Very weak, poor crema. And in non-recyclable plastic pods with plastic outer wraps. Nespresso originals are still the best but L'Or aluminium capsules get very close (much as I hate to promote anything French).

Agree these are terrible. Given Taylors experience with coffee roasting they should be ashamed of this muck. Really terrible taste and I say that as someone who buys Taylors coffee beans.

Well, price elsewhere is still £3 so I guess there are ppl out there who actually like it.

Or people know nothing about coffee and think coffee pod=coffee pod (no offence, Im no coffee guru either)

Just because it says Nespresso compatible doesn't mean its Nepresso quality

Worst coffee I have ever had. But, yes, a good price in theory for what others charge.
Taylor coffee is absolute pants anyway, like drinking dishwater, not that I knowingly have
I’ve had a couple of shocking Taylors Nespresso. That said the decaffeinated is actually fairly good - I’d recommended them.
Seen these in a few of my local Glaswegian stores yesterday - there's only 10 per pack (though I don't have a Nespresso machine, so not sure about value for money).

Read good things about the Lidl varieties.

From having a bean to cup machine I've regressed - I drink my ground coffee from an (insulated) cafetiere now!!
These used to be ok. Have they changed the recipe?I always had an emergency supply of these

I think for a large espresso as I like it, the cream and the colour is quite great. Taste is also good (my opinion).
Of course there are better coffee pods on the market but quality/price on these works for me.
I tried some Lor pods this morning. TERRIBLE.
These are so hard to pump the water through that I had to empty the drip tray on my Inissia after every cup. Dumped the final few.
Icky.... just brown water lacking any taste. Saying that, I find most of the nespresso compatible ones pretty poor tbh.

Thanks for the heads up though, OP

L’Or are manufactured by Douwe Egberts which is a Dutch company & part of the Mondelez International group

Thanks, appreciate that ill check them out tomorrow
Good price regardless of taste preference, so have some heat OP.

Personally I’ve found nothing that beats the original Nespresso pods, but you do pay for quality. L’Or probably come the closest, but not all varieties.

Having recently upgraded to a bean-to-cup the same principle applies to beans. You get what you pay for.

Still use the Nespresso machine for convenience, but stick to original pods.

The problem with the Taylors pods AFAIK is that they don't work very well in many Nespresso machines - they don't get pierced properly, certainly not in my machine. I bought some of the decaf to try and got very weak coffee and most of the water dumped into the waste tray.

Because I didn't want to throw the rest away, I tried piercing the bottom of the capsule 4/6 times and the top about 10 times with a pin. That worked well and I got nice coffee as a result. I wouldn't bother buying them again, unless I saw them at £1!

Aldi make a very drinkable decaf pod at £1.69 a sleeve, although you have to order them online 6 sleeves at a time (free delivery).

Hey jase.2, was out and about today - can confirm they're in the Trongate store - they're still there - not in Argyle Street. I don't buy them so didn't really store it in the memory banks on Friday night

Thanks Louise, I got some in that store - saw them in Argyle St too but at £2.

They also have them in Ayr High Street for £1 if that helps anyone else looking for these

Maybe that's why I didn't see them in Argyle Street, I barely look at the £2 sections (tight fisted to the last)!!

There still seems to be some confusion about the pricing of Poundland's £1/£2 ranges - last time it happened was a few nights ago - items from the L'Oreal Skin Perfection Range (they have Soothing Gel-Cream Wash, Micellar Water, Cleansing & Perfecting Milk and Toner in stores - some stores sell them for £2, some £1).

Poundworld is worse for lack of shelf labels/inconsistent pricing, in my experience, though.
Or buy a delonghi/saeco and quickly recoup the cost via buying beans

Real deal coffee too most importantly
Of all the generics you can get for the nespresso machines - these are the worst - I wouldn't touch them even at this price.
L'Or or Starbucks get my vote as Nespresso own alternative.

Cafe Pod are another brand with slow pour from my experience, and I find I have to flush my machine after each of their pods.
Bought some of these from Sainsbury's when they had an offer in local store.
Capsules were rubbish ... about 3 teaspoon of water get dispensed from my machine. Whereas the real Nespresso or Lidl capsules gave the correct amount. I bought 3 boxes of those, wasted 1 box trying to find out why they were bad ... threw the other 2 boxes away. This was about 2 years ago, maybe their QA had improved since.

buy bluecup, a refillable pod; buy a handheld coffee grinder, buy top end M&S brand coffee beans, use freshly grounded beans to make the pod. I find this taste better than Nespresso Pods.

I use Aldi pods on the Nespresso machine at work. I buy the 7 strength Espresso pods and they're really good (I think their pods were awarded a Which? Taste Award). Picked up some L'Or ones in Tesco the other day because they were on offer at £2 and their strength 8 isn't as strong as Aldi's 7, nor is the flavour as rich. Definitely sticking with Aldi caps for work (and bean to cup at home).

That sounds like a lot of work for a 'convenience' coffee machine?
The next best is L'or or Starbucks. Shame Starbucks cannot use aluminium as recycling is important to me.
Well, it is a trade off among cost, convenience and taste, and everyone’s preference is different
