Coffee2u Refillable Reusable Coffee Capsules Pods For Nespresso – 10 Coffee Pods – : good if you use really strong coffee that is finely

You work, a little more than the prepackaged standard capsules demand, but it isn’t a difficult task. If you like your coffee simple, just coffee, and or black, these are a great way of putting ground coffee to use. It’s definitely better to keep the coffee grounds in a plastic container, as this makes scooping and pressing the grounds into the pod – against the wall of the container easy, and allows for the excess to be smoothed away without wastage.

The mesh starts to pull away from the plastic after two or three uses, although overall they seem to keep functioning well.

Only had them a couple of days but so far they’re working well. It’s taken me a couple of uses to start to get a feel for how much coffee to put in. I put a third in; pack it; another third; pack it then pack the last bit. Not too hard just so it doesn’t feel loose. I use a combination of a tea spoon and my thumb. They’re easy enough to wash and i’m going to start using the waste coffee on my garden.

I was given these as a birthday present and they are compatible with my nespresso inissia (krups). If you pat them down the coffee is strong and you get a nice crema.

These are brilliant – i found wonderful coffees to use in my nespresso machine.

Coffee2u Refillable Reusable Coffee Capsules Pods For Nespresso – 10 Coffee Pods – (Fit all Nespresso machines from after October 2010) : Brill and more eco friendly plus can use my lavazza and illy coffee.

Quick and efficient service from the company. Product provides a delicate, re-useable but sturdy and capsule.

Good if you use really strong coffee that is finely ground otherwise the coffe is all a bit weak. They are a bit fiddly to fill without making a mess. Still works out a lot cheaper than the prepacked capsules.

These things work, no problem there. But it is worth noting that if you want to be able to drink a cup of coffee using only one of these pods then you can’t just use any old coffee, you need something very strong, certainly if you like a lungo. The stuff they use in the official pods must be super concentrated.

Got them for my friend and he says they do what they’re supposed to do.

Works perfectly for coffee in our nespresso machine (pixie). The coffee must be espresso grind (fine). I have tried these for hot chocolate too, and find that quite a bit of cocoa is left in the pod, but the same thing happens with hot choc pods that are commercially produced too, so i think it would be unfair to drop a star for this. They are very easy to open and shut. When buying them, i sort of had in mind that i would be able to make up a lot of pods, and then use them as and when, but as these aren’t airtight when filled, i think using them that way would probably not be the best approach, so they need to be filled as needed. This is why they’ve lost a star from me.

I have an inissia machine & i can get these capsules to work well. By working well, i don’t just mean that the water goes through the capsule adequately but that the coffee is worth drinking. There are some things to be aware of:you need to use a very strong coffee because the capsules are small – they hold a maximum of 5g compared to 8g for a standard espresso made the traditional way. Nespresso can do it, you say, & make a yummy, albeit expensive drink. Yes, that is true, but we don’t know if they do unspeakable things to the coffee in the process. Certainly, they have very sophisticated ways of getting the maximum amount of coffee into a tiny capsule & those are not available to the home diy coffee pod maker. 5 strength coffee beans, ground to espresso fineness. Fill the pod & tamp down firmly (but not too aggressively), leaving a very slight gap at the top of about 2mm. I am using asda java volcanic at the moment.

    This review is from : Coffee2u Refillable Reusable Coffee Capsules Pods For Nespresso – 10 Coffee Pods – (Fit all Nespresso machines from after October 2010)

    The product – so wanted these to work as would love to use my favourite ground coffees in my pixie, as well as being far more economical than the genuine nespresso capsules. However they were a complete waste of time. Tried numerous combinations full, half full, packed down, loose, different coffees, hot chocolate etc. , same results – weak and tasteless. Checked the positive comments of other reviewers so thought must be me. Gave pods to friend to try in her pixie. She had same results – gave up wasting her coffee. So as expensive returned them for refund. If you can get them to work they are a great solution. I wasted too much coffee trying these so would make it zero stars if rating allowedthe service – the 10 capsules arrived missing 2 lids. Everydaydeals/coffee2u were extremely efficient and dispatched 2 replacements immediately. After the disappointment and failure of the product, they were contacted for a return and refund of the 12, now going through. Happy to use them again, very efficient.

      1. 2.0 out of 5 stars You're probably better off spending more on a metal one.
        Pro: these are basically functional and will do what they are supposed to docon: the mesh on the lid comes apart after 3 or 4 uses, the coffee compacts onto the lid which is near to impossible to remove when cleaning and they have a sort of groove int the bottome which makes it harder again to clean them. I ended up buying a stainless steel one and won’t be buying these again, nor would i recommend them. They are a good attempt at solving the problem but the design needs reviewing.

    1. 1.0 out of 5 stars Cheap Tacky Plastic
      The item i received was not coffee2u capsules. Completely different to style and colour of advertised item. They don’t look as solid as the advertised product. To me they look like they would fall apart after 1st or 2nd use. After looking at the package it seems somebody thought it would be ok to put a barcode sticker on with coffee2u printed on the label. I will try one and see what happens but not holding out too much hope. If these are as bad as they look i will be returning for a full refund.

    Had these before from different supplier. These pods are disappointing so far . Two the the 10pods have failed with the mesh on the lids resulting in the coffee granules seaping through only after the second use. Other pods are starting to fail also. I will be sending these back rest assured.

    Thought we would give these a try so we could be a bit more eco friendly. Sad to say, we were very disappointed. They are difficult to fill, too much and they don’t work, the water can’t get through and too little and you get weak coffee. They also break very easily, the filters split after a couple of uses.
