    Cheap Nespresso Compatible Pods 23rd Nov 11 at 12:07 AM
    Was shocked to see that Costco are now selling pods that work in Nespresso machines. Having just spent over £70 for pods that work out over 33p each I was gutted to see a big box of pods in two strengths for just £19.99 with no Vat on them. I think there were 100 pods in a box. Medium 3 roast or medium 4 dark roast were the two flavours on offer. They were also selling a Nespresso machine and they had one of their testers making coffee's using their pods in the Nespresso machine. I like the green Indirya pods or the purple pods and this was most close to the Medium 3 roast - the 4 tasted a little more bitter and not as smooth.
    I wonder how long it will be before Nespresso find out and stop them selling them!

    There are few companiess in Europe that have started selling Nespresso compatible pods. The patent runs out next year, so I suspect we might get lots more copies!

    Excellent news - about time the Nestle rip-off got a serious challenge. They're fighting hard to protect their patents (only one of which expires in 2012) but with luck they'll lose. Not a nice company, in so many ways.

    None in Sheffield. If anyone visiting Costco this week can they please post model stocked.
    Thanks

    It was the Watford store that had the pods last week and it was the Lattissima Nespresso model they had on offer with plenty of stock.

    The only good thing about that company is that they have George Clooney on the ads! lol!

    In Spain you can buy compatible capsules in any supermarket (from a well-known coffee brand, can't remember the name at this moment), but I calculated the price per capsule and it was the same as the originals, so I didn't bother...

    There are plenty of videos on youtube of how to make your own capsules thought....

    Just back from Costco Glasgow

    The machine is the lattissma en660 (looks like an old model as it is not on the Delonghi website), inc VAT £203, no sign of either nespresso nor generic pods ;o(

    Saw a pretty negative review of the 670 model on youtube (can't do links) that has put me off this model but still like the look of the Citiz with the milk frother, but might wait and see what happens with the Generic pods first.

    Just seen Nespresso capsules on Amazon they are imported from Israel by the looks of it. I heard that the pods werent allowed to be sold elsewhere as they have to be stored and refrigerated carefully which was why you could only order from them directly or in their retail shops. I've got a Citiz and love it - best thing I bought. Lots of offers on John Lewis for free Nespresso club credit.

    61.37 after using 5% off code with further 6% quidco. Has free credit promotion as well.

    Amazon and John Lewis were 64.99 but have both gone up in price to 79.99 and 69.99 respectively.
