Been drinking Nespresso for years, but am tired of them raising their prices. Tried these capsules a few weeks back and they were excellent with very solid pricing. I see they are running a special - buy 5 get 1 free - use code Buy5get1. Great deal on top of already a good price.

Do you expect a real review from the user who signed up today to post this deal or the user who signed up today to say he purchased it and it's a great price?

Looks like the company is new to the nespresso compatibles market so I doubt you'll be able to find honest reviews. I would feel better buying these on Amazon so that if there's an issue of compatibility or quality I'd have Amazon's backup for any possible issues.

Not really clear what you are implying about me, but I thought it would be worthwhile to share a good deal on coffee. I have been frustrated with the rising Nespresso prices for a while and found something that was good. I first saw a review on this site - http://www.coffeecapsuleguide.com. I have tried a number of these capsules and really liked these.

I think it's pretty clear what I'm implying.

The last time Nespresso raised its capsule prices was in 2014 as far as I know. Not saying they're cheap - which is why I buy compatible capsules, but it had to be a long while to be frustrated by rising prices if the last increase was almost 4 years ago.

If your site had a clear designation for lungo capsules I'd give them a try. Although I still prefer to buy on Amazon for the peace of mind.

You have a good point; hence, why I held off on biting the bullet. I wish their 'sampler' pack weren't 10 pods per 'sample.' If there was a sampler pack kind of like what Nespresso does with a pod of every flavor, then I'd try this out.

IMO, Nespresso has lowered their prices. I generally get 2 free sleeve offers with the purchase of 18, over 10% off, plus free shipping. At Christmas, they also had a nice box of chocolates, plus the 2 sleeves. I've tried most of the generics and I haven't found one comparable.

I haven't tried these, but we have had a Nespresso for a couple years and pull 8-10 shots/day on it and use almost exclusively third party capsules. I like light coffees (my favorite Nespresso pod is Rosabaya de Colombia) and my husband and father like dark (I think they really like Dharkan and Kazar). We've got a Lattissima and I exclusively drink lattes and cappucinos and my husband drinks lungo or regular shots with almond milk. We aren't connoisseurs, we just want decent, cheap, easy to make coffee drinks. So with that in mind, here's what we've tried and liked:

-Hiline Coffee: For day to day we use Soho or Brooklyn because they're cheapest. They ran 25% off for Black Friday and we ordered 100 bags of Brooklyn at a bit over thirty cents a pod IIRC. We're happy with this for everyday, but it is on the lighter side. If you're willing to spend a bit more my husband likes Broadway and my father really likes Wall Street, among the darker roasts. Last time I checked, the code ESPRESSO was giving 20% off, and if you join their mailing list they pretty much constantly send 10% off deals. Soho pods require a bit of a shove to fit our machine. No other problems with the other flavors, and it's not like Soho has ever broken our machine, which wasn't new when we bought it and happily keeps on chugging.

-Barrie House: We tried them on a whim when stacking a sale and subscription discount worked out cheaper than Hiline. I like the Guatemalan single origin and my husband says the Intenso is a real kick in the pants. They seem to run sales coincident with federal holidays, so get on the mailing list.

-Gourmesso. Like sawdust. Skip it.

The real Nespresso pods are, honestly, better, but I can't justify the expense at our heavy usage level.
