You have had recommendations but as you later specified that you only want recommendations for so called genuine Nespresso pods most of us probably cant help you.

I went through the sample pack, there were several that i liked, I made a note of them and then saw the prices :o :o :shock: :shock:

All I can tell you is my vote is for Lidl Forte Lungo but my mean-ness prevents me from trying any of the decent ones.

Can you not buy a sample pack like the ones they include with the machines?

Just out of interest... ;) did anyone ever find a non-bitter Nespresso capsule in their range?
Huh?? LD take a look at my first post on this thread....😜😜😜

I don't have a Nespresso machine and have no intention of buying one. I view the brand as a complete rip-off and, on the rare occasion someone has offered me one, it tasted sh*ite.

Lemorvan.

I agree that if you have the time and inclination your method cannot be beaten,
Time ? it takes about a minute.

for me for the apartments it has to be something simple, foolproof and not requiring any cleaning or preparation by the guests, something that they cannot screw up, flood the worktops etc etc, loose coffee would be an absolute no-no.
I agree with you on the above comments.

It is. Try it before you knock it.
My favourite used to be “Rosabaya”, but it has been discontinued and this was recommended as pretty similar.

I put a filter coffee maker, with filters, and a gas top expresso maker in the Gite. Based on past experience, I’m not sure I would trust guests to know which capsules to get. Recent French guests brought their expresso machine with them!

This is the one I bought - very similar to those above. I like the fact that you can use ground coffee or the large or small pods.

If you are thinking of buying one of the above machines DON'T! I've had mine since late August and the temperature of a coffee now is down to just over 50 degrees, almost cold. To have a cup now I have to heat it up in the microwave which sort of defeats the purpose of the machine. Unfortunately it is not supplied directly by Amazon and there is only a 30 day return period. The supplier is based in Italy.

I hava had to do that from new with all my coffee makers, its just part of the process if you add milk to your coffee which I am betting that you do!

The ones I bought with UK plugs always were set a little hotter than those with French plugs but still not ho enough for me.
