These are all questions that come to mind when you consider buying compatible pods/capsules for your Nespresso machine – and for good reason! Read on for our tips on selecting the right pods for you.

Nespresso has spent many years building up its customer base of coffee lovers, from an ever increasing amount of Nespresso machines on the market, to opening new stores (as well as the famous George Clooney ads!) More recently many companies have sprung up manufacturing their own Nespresso compatible pods – selling them at discount to Nespresso’s own.

Here are our tips to find compatible pods for you:

1)      Compatibility
Double check any references to compatibility, some capsules work great in specific models of machine e.g Delonghi but not in another brand. The pods we sell are compatible with all current Nespresso makes/models but that’s not the case for all companies. You may think this is stating the obvious but also double check that your current pods are actually “Nespresso”,  there are now many types of machines on the market including Dolce Gusto and Tassimo – this can be quite confusing for customers as the pods aren’t the same.

2)      Range of flavours
Every coffee lover is different, some like a caffeine kick, others like it smooth!  Look for a company that can offer multiple intensities for you to try. That way if one of the coffee pods are not for you – you can try others. We now stock 5 coffee intensities including organic, we are also one of the only UK companies to sell Nespresso hot chocolate pods & milkshake pods (a world’s first!)

3)      Postage
This varies a great deal, with Nespresso being one of the highest! Look around at postage charges, do you feel they are fair/do they offer discount the more you buy, is there a minimum order? We try to be fair by reducing the postage the more you buy. With no minimum order.

4)      Reviews
Check out the companies reviews, for example we are proud to have 4.8 stars – mugpods reviews.  Consequently check other companies – are they rated well by their customers?

5) Price
Finally, look at the pricing – a lot of compatible pods/capsules are around 20-30% cheaper than Nespresso, but make sure you take into account both the individual box prices and postage combined.
