In good news for those looking for a bargain there are now cheaper alternatives to Nespresso capsules that are 100% compatible with Nespresso coffee machines.
The Nestle company that owns Nespresso recently lost one of its patents related to the Nespresso coffee system. Despite fighting the issue it now means that other manufacturers can make compatible coffee pods for Nespresso machines.
Alternative Nespresso pods are now available in supermarkets such as Tesco and Aldi. The compatible pods are a similar shape and can easily fit in your Nespresso coffee machine.
The coffee itself may taste slightly different, being a different blend but whether it tastes better or worse will depend on your personal taste.
But ultimately it means that that you can enjoy using your Nespresso machine for a slightly cheaper per-cup cost.
