    Best place to buy Nespresso compatible pods 8th Nov 17 at 6:54 PM
    I have been given an Nespresso coffee maker.....and wondered where is the best/cheapest place to buy compatible pods.

    Also trying to decipher the Italian on the pods....which is basically the nicest one...usually I just like kenco..lol and where to buy a variety with chocolate ones etc...

    TIA

    Aldi and LIDl sell their own brand. 10 for 1.69. Limited choice. But I like 'em.

    Tesco etc sell Cafepod. Cafepod have their own website. 10 for 2.75 or so unless there's a deal. Or you buy in bulk direct.

    Amazon and eBay have various alternatives. 20p a pod or so is doable. Not tried any yet.

    Whatever you do, don't buy actual Nespresso pods from either Amazon or eBay sellers. They are cheaper on Nespresso.com. The little scammers want 50p a pod!

    Don't know about ' chocolate ones'. I know that Nespresso do chocolate. But I'm only interested in class A caffeine.

    Personally, nothing beats the genuine Nespresso pods. I've tried the Aldi/Lidl/Cafepod ones, for me, none of them are as good as the Nespresso ones. They work out at about 30p ish each, cheap for a nice coffee.

    Yes. Some of the Nespresso pods are pretty damn good. Kazaar and Dharkan for example. But that's my opinion. Nespresso.com prices are between 31p and 39p per pod. And you need to order 200 capsules to get free delivery. Of course you my have a Nespresso Boutique (aka a 'shop') nearby.

    31p per pod is certainly cheaper (and possibly better) than getting one from Costa. But 17p per pod is a lot less, and man does not live by fillet steak alone.

    You can try local shops or those online sellers. There are thousands out there, and I can’t point out the best one since they differ in so many things like the brand and types of pods they sell. But if you want an easy way to find a coffee pod seller, I suggest that you check out online. Honestly, it just took me less than an hour to find a seller who offers several products (coffee and hot chocolate pods) I’m looking for. Visiting local shops can be time-consuming and tiring as you might have to jump from one store to another. Anyway, hope this helps.

    Amazon sell Eden pods and there is a company called Moving Beans online - both of them sell compostable pods. Much better than the aluminium or plastic pods.

    If you are a member of Costco they have a 2 week £5 off discount on Dualit Nespresso compatible pods starting 10th June. Either Intense or Lungo

    120 pods for £14.99

    Haven't tried them so can't comment on taste/quality.

    The Nespresso ones are probably the best.
    Cru Kafe ones are nearly as good as Nespresso's own.
    Starbucks ones are pretty good.
    Tesco own brand ones are quite good, but they seem to be a bit too densely packed so my machine struggles.

    Have you tried the Novell Coffee Compostables? They're Nespresso machine compatible and they're very good! Delicious blends and the compostable blends are easy eco-friendly swaps!

    Having tried pretty much every pod available (including a few fancy mail order only pods) my personal favorite was actually Starbucks specifically Kenya ones. They cost the same as Nespresso mind. Cheaper pods are sometimes a false economy as I'd need a couple to get a strong enough coffee. Anyway I got sick of the pod waste and bought a DeLongie bean to cup, using Lavazza Qualità Rossa - beans I find it better in every way, better taste, cheaper, more consistent.

    I’ve also been given a secondhand Nespresso machine and am looking at cheaper capsule options, as I’m used to my DeLonghi bean-to-cup machine.

    It’s worth looking at Groupon and Living Social (probably Wowcher too) as these can often be combined with cashback (Groupon also qualifies for Airtime Rewards if you pay with a Mastercard!)

    I’ve also seen refillable pods on Groupon which have a flip-up lid; you can fill them with finely ground coffee, and they are apparently reusable up to 50 times each.

    I think the Nespresso will be a big downward step from your bean to cup machine.

    b and m has cheap capsules 75p for 10 and they are fine for everyday use. I look anywhere i| go and often pick them up in TK Max in coffee area or sometimes the bargain food area much reduced.

    Lidl/Aldi do them not sure as to quality.

    Tip the coffee is not always so hot and we always warm the cup before with boilng water and hot milk helps too.

    My machine is long in the bin but I remember the coffee in pods from Home Bargains B&M etc was usually fine,it was the pods that caused problems for me some would struggle to put water through others flooded the machine.
