Find the best coffee capsules with the help of our taste test and review:
… until they make one that is completely biodegradable these capsules will always leave a bad taste in my mouth …
Nespresso have recently released a new system, both machines and pods… I tried one in the store and would have loved to buy the latest machine and the one pod I tried, but can’t justify the cost of the pods compared to my existing Sunbeam espresso machine and grinder. The new pod that I tried was superior to their previous system. I presume it is too new to be included in the CHOICE review.
Get the best pods for your coffee machine with help from our review:
It’s worth considering that there are many different supposed flavours or blends from each pod supplier.
The review may have picked the best blend from each capsule brand. I wonder how the experts would rate the range from each brand?
I have a couple of picks from one brand that are first option. They are not necessarily the same as the taste test. It might say something about my lack of taste?
Interesting it takes us two capsules to make a half decent cup. Perhaps Nespresso has a very small standard cup? With the cost of capsules relatively expensive, the cost of two per cup suggests a manual espresso machine delivers the best value, and coffee.
As an alternative for recycling the aluminium capsules you can use a sharp box cutter to de-lid or split them. Grounds to compost. Aluminium to a bag for the recycling depot scrap metal bin.
