I realise that the machine is important but, for me, the quality and price of the pods is more important. The beauty of the original Nespresso machine is the range of compatible pods that you can buy. If you want to, you can buy the Nespresso branded ones for about 35p a pod all the way down to about 6p a pod for Amazon's Solimo branded pods. Personally, I never buy Nespresso pods because I drink so many cups a day that the total cost would soon mount up. My favourite make is L'Or which I normally pick up from Amazon for about 17p a pod using subscribe&save. I did buy them once directly from L'Or when they had two vouchers that double stacked. There were 19 different varieties so I got a few packets of each of them. The problem with this machine is that there isn't the same range of compatibles out there. There are some, and perhaps the range will grow if the machine becomes more popular but, for now, I will stick with my Nespresso pod machine plus my De'Longhi bean to cup.
Anyone got any experience of using TheCoffeePod.co.uk for compatible capsules?
Great info thanks (y)
You could buy the capsules from most supermarkets. 16 capsules cost around £4. Alternatively, Amazon sells 16 boxes for £49.95 which is around £3 a box. I own both this and a Nespresso and personally I find that the coffee tastes more intense and creamer with this. It’s rated very well on Which. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Lavazza-Modo-Coffee-Espresso-Passionale/dp/B07Z9DXZBM/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=lavazza%2Bcoffee%2Bpods&qid=1591169617&sprefix=lavazza&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExSFg1VjNKSlEwS1NLJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwMTAzNzI1M0pLRDk0U00wMVUxMyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwNDY4NzA0M0NGSk9EQTY2Q1BONiZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX3Bob25lX3NlYXJjaF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl&th=1
Well crack on with your own deals rather than criticising others. That’s the job for a mod, of which you are not.
