Why choose an alternative to Nespresso coffee pods?

Posted on 27 November 2016

Alternative to Nespresso<span>®</span> coffee pods

Did you know that you don’t have to use Nespresso® branded pods in your Nespresso® machine? If you didn’t know, you are probably missing out on getting the most out of your Nespresso® machine. There is now an abundance of independent Nespresso compatible coffee pod manufacturers who are doing the hard work for you in order to offer the best quality coffee around in the convenience of a Nespresso® compatible capsule. We have put together 5 reasons why you need to make the switch.

1. Specialty coffee

If you aren’t in the habit of searching online for the world’s best specialty coffee to grind and brew every morning, we completely understand. But if you have bought a Nespresso® capsule machine and haven’t tried some of the alternative coffee pods on the market, then we think it is about time you did. Nespresso® have a wide variety of coffee blends available but they are not the highest quality coffee pods you can buy. There are now coffee pods available that will work perfectly in your Nespresso® machine which are sourced from the finest coffee growers in the world and are delivered straight to your door. These coffee pods will change your perception as to what is possible from your Nespresso® machine in an instant. Companies like Pod Co. Coffee only source the highest quality specialty coffee to use in our coffee pods.

2. Freshness

This is likely to be the first thing you notice when you purchase a coffee pod alternative to Nespresso®. Nespresso® coffee pods are produced on a huge industrial scale to cater for their worldwide customers however the down fall of this is that the coffee inside the pods has been roasted and ground many months before it actually reaches you. Nespresso® alternatives are generally produced on a smaller scale so by the time you put that pod in your machine, it is probably only a matter of days or weeks since the coffee has been ground and you will tell the difference. From the aroma to the thick crema, everything is different.

3. Environmental impact

A major criticism of Nespresso® coffee pods are the negative impact they have on the environment as they are made from aluminium. Nearly all Nespresso® alternative capsules are made from recyclable plastic which you can easily recycle at home. All you have to do is remove the lid, clean out the used coffee and they are good to go with all of your other recyclables. Sure you can recycle your Nespresso coffee pods through Nespresso®’s recycle program, but it is much easier to do it your self.

4. Support local businesses

Most of the Nespresso® alternative coffee pods manufacturers are local businesses. Encouraging and supporting local business is important in growing the local economy and will increase diversity, competition and variety. At Pod Co. Coffee, our entire range of coffee pods are produced in Melbourne. From roasting to grinding to packaging, it is all done right here in Melbourne – and we are very proud to be able to say that!

5. Get the most out of your Nespresso® machine everyday

The beauty of living in a city like Melbourne which has such a rich café culture is that we get to experience different coffee roasts all the time. By purchasing an alternative to Nespresso®, you can do this every day at home. Unlock the real power of your Nespresso® machine and see what else there is out there, we guarantee that you will be surprised with what you find.
