Just got mine and they're god awful, I mean a step up from instant, but nowhere near as good as Nespresso's own.... God they're so acidic and harsh.
Got mine today - the Blonde seems to be a pretty standard coffee, no funny flavour etc. Wish I'd got 2x 120. Confirmed it's no longer available.
Oh that’s good to know. Have taken a punt on 240 of them! To be fair, a lot of my mates and friends/family etc have nespresso machines so I’m going to just take a sleeve round to them all and see. The Starbucks pods are definitely my favourite. I don’t bother with any supermarket alternatives or nespresso pods themselves, never found any I enjoyed as much as Starbucks ones.
I've been a Nespresso coffee drinker for 15 years now and the Starbucks Sumatra capsules by Nespresso are possibly my favourite ever. This was a brilliant deal thanks!!!
Missed out on this one but got some about a year ago and agree it's nice coffee. I wasn't expecting much as it was silly cheap at the time but thoroughly enjoyed it. Tbh, probably a good thing I missed out on this as got about 8kg or something silly of varying coffee from various brands.
Thanks OP!!! Tried and it's great coffee for that now expired very low price of around £4/kg.
This is a nice coffee had a big batch of this a few months ago
I bought a pack of this and a pack of the tradizionale this morning. Just tried the tradizionale on my Sage barista express. I had to remove the burr and change the grind size to 5 before I could even pull a decent shot. Even then it tastes very bitter. I don’t tend to buy the best beans I admit, but the speciality ones from Aldi taste a lot better than these. Will try the Espresso ones tomorrow and hope they might be slightly better! I’m no coffee expert by the way but feel I have mastered my Sage barista express well enough to get the beat shot out of most beans.
Sadly not a fan of these at all, their 487grms Colombia special in yellow packs (used to be half price sometimes) is their best.
You have given me hope, there is a Costa 2 minutes down from the kids school. After the school run in the morning I'm on it. Thanks.
My local Costa has already posted on Facebook showing the items they are selling tomorrow, whole beans are there, along with every capsule type they do.
Sorry to say it looks like it is only the ground coffee. I looked at the list put up on what's available and beans were not on it
Been drinking it for a year now, sometimes not as good but honestly me and my partner both are happy with it. Nice and certainly not bad.
I bought this back in November and I must say we rather enjoyed this coffee! Must have got a good batch. 😄
The price has been dipping since I posted the deal, much like the deals rating for it here. I think I will have to accept a poor cup of coffee is poor at any price. There are plenty of good deals out there at around the £8 mark and I should try not to be so cheap.
Nice wanted some Starbucks beans so perfect timing!
That isn't a dark roast though. There is a huge difference.
If you are a Costco member this works out a lot cheaper if you can go a hold of it. 907g for £4.97 at Thurrock Warehouse or £6.97 at Sheffield not sure if available elsewhere. https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/costco-kirkland-medium-roast-starbucks-whole-bean-coffee-907g-3703413
A couple of days ago, arrived yesterday and responded to an email this morning. ;(
So you only just ordered recently? If that’s the case I’ll expire the post. Thanks.
Ordered £50 worth of product from the website (including £20+ coffee) but no arrival of Espresso set (only reason I ordered, a little nostalgia!). Reached out and CS responded saying the offer expired 6wks ago...
Bless you Rosalina. <3 <3 <3
Getting them is easy. Finding space in the cupboard is a problem. Oh well, out with the old, in with the new (highfive)! Thank you!!
Hey I'm still learning about all this as well myself, the quest for the perfect coffee (for me) seems to be a, long and arduous road!
You wanna post it here yourself or should I do it? :p
I also have a delonghi at home and a more expensive one at work. I did drink it that way just to use it up ,but I wasn't a fan . Thanks anyway for your input on this as I have learned so much from people like yourself .
I think there are many people on this website that will disagree. I don't mind Rossa and of course at the end it's a matter of taste
Yeah, they over roast it in the shop too. My coffee machine instruction book goes as far as to say that beans should never be roast to the point of making the oil come out. A good quality dark roast should be almost black but still dull. The bitterness may be a matter of personal taste but I was a bit shocked when my Jura packed up after trying them!
I find the coffee shop coffee exactly the same taste.. Tastes burnt.
Don’t bother with these. Had almost out of date coffee twice now.
This is my regular purchase, makes lovely coffee. I've even managed to give up milk as can drink this black. They are oily but I've always preferred oily beans, produce much better crema - oh, and oily beans last longer although now I'm WFH, I'm going through 6 bags a month so they're not hanging around long!
Amazon is getting rid of shortdated Starbucks coffee. I had to return 6 packages last month.
Funnily enough, look what I found in Robroyston store about an hour ago (embarrassed)
These are lovely coffee beans. I'm on my fourth bag. Good round, full flavour without a bitter aftertaste. Not an oily bean so they don't bung up my bean to cup. (y) 🏻
They are in the middle Section where the have the seasonal specials - also do An Italian level 4 one at same price. Not all Stores seem to have full Range of seasonal, maybe depends on size/demographic?
Didn't realise these were originally £6.99. I'm in the Aldi near my mum's (a few miles away) nearly every day and I've never seen these coffee beans in there XD
They’ve been creeping slowly downward price wise from initial £6.99 then £6.49 - now £5.99. When to bite eh?
