To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
They fit my nespresso essenza mini but you have to fiddle them a bit. We've started putting them in through the bottom, as it's easier. I am not in love with the strength, tastes watery - we're still figuring it out but I think it's worth it. I like that you can put whatever coffee you want.
super à utiliser. est livré avec une cuillère qui facilite le placement du café dans la capsule. pour ceux qui aiment le café plus fort il faut comprimer le café dans la capsule, il y a un accessoire pour ça. Je l'ai acheté mais il n'est pas encore arrivé. J'utilise actuellement un ustensile improvisé pour comprimer le café
At best, this makes a weak and watery cup of coffee. You can’t put enough coffee in the pod to make it comparably as strong as when making a cup using a nespresso pod. I compared it side by side to a nespresso pod, and it’s definitely smaller. I stuffed it as full as possible, ran it, then emptied the pod out. I then emptied a used nespresso pod to compare total coffee volume and it’s obvious that the nespresso pod fits a lot more coffee in it than this capsule does. Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that this had a shorter return window than normal, so I’m stuck with useless pods and wasted money.
I did not use for awhile as I love my nespresso and though it might break it. But used this weekend and it worked perfectly! Really got flavor my favorite coffee to come through...even though I used regular grind not espresso!
The rubber gaskets on the capsules wear out fairly quickly, rendering the product useless (as the water - under pressure - will circumvent the capsule rather than go through it. The simple answer would be to include extra gaskets with the unit, or sell them in multi-packs. But I inquired about o gaining additional gaskets, and was told they cannot be purchased. So, I’m giving this product a 1-star rating.
Don’t buy this product thinking it will taste like the real nespresso pods. There is almost no foam and the taste really depends on the coffee you buy, which if you buy a good quality one, would not be much of a saving compared to other generic pods.
If you buy this product, the only way to justify it is that it is eco friendly and doesn’t pollute the planet. For that reason I keep it, but I’m not blown away by the taste.
