It's not as good as Nespresso, if you are very,very fussy but as I drink a lot of Nespresso inFrance where I spend. A lot of time, I find it slightly "thinner"
It is well worth trying and the service is excellent.
At last our coffee arrived but oh dear! it took nearly 3 weeks to get here and it looked like it had been opened. Maybe the French customs wanted a cuppa! Our first delivery was so rapid that it was a little disappointing to have to wait so long this time. I know we live in France but normally the service is much quicker between the UK and here. Perhaps next time things will improve. At least we can drink decent coffee this Christmas!
These coffee pods are compatible with my Magimix machine, which other than the original Nespresso pods has not been the case with cheaper pod options. This makes buying from the Fine Coffee Club very cost effective.
The coffee is excellent although not as strong as I would normally take it especially the decaffeinated variety. But next time I will order a stronger variety.
I am going to recommend to my friends now that I have tried them and will certainly order again.
Yep, all good. Would be nice to have a discount for repeat orders...otherwise if someone else is cheaper it will be bye bye...
We ordered a selection of coffee from the Fine Coffee Club whilst waiting for the Nespresso club promotional voucher. Ordering was simple, delivery was prompt and th coffee was as good as the Branded Nespresso pods we got as a sample with the machine. Once we have used up the promotional voucher at Nespresso, we will probably order all our coffe from the Fine Coffee club, and save ourselves some money. By the way ,we did order some biscuits and they are delicious,too!
The capsules don't fit properly in my Nespresso and often just either fall through into the collection tray, or require extra positioning that regular nespresso capsules do not. Once the capsule is in place it requires a lot more force to pierce the container too.
The coffee itself though is rather nice, so it's a shame about the capsules!
I'd probably order again from the company in future though if these issues were resolved as my order came very quickly and the price is obviously a good saving. As for now though I'm afraid I had to stick in an order with Nespresso as I can't use these capsules for fear of damaging my machine.
Having read other reviews I was a little nervous and having tried a supermarket "suitable for nespresso machines" which was truly awful it is good and although the "official" coffee is slightly better it is worth buying these the saving justifies picking these . I would buy again but stick only to the dark roast for me
I previously ordered coffee from the fine coffee club and it came in sealed pouches. Whilst bulky to store this coffee was on a par with Nespresso capsules. These new capsules, delivered in sleeves, are not as good & not as strong, meaning I need to use 2 capsules instead of 1 for a decent latte. This makes the coffee more expensive than the genuine nespresso capsules.
I recently placed my first order and was slightly sceptical as I had been informed my Krups machine would only work with "genuine" pods. The downside of that was the cost. Fine Coffee Club offers a great alternative, has great coffee and you save money - what is there not to like? Getting an account was very easy, the delivery was timely and I cannot fault the experience in any way. Thank you Coffee Club for giving us an alternative!
I was disappointed to find that the capsules didn't fit my machine as the service I received from the fFine Coffee Club was verty good and obviously cheaper than Nespresso ,however , the capsules jammed inside my machine and I had to use use force to remove it
I sent them all back for a refund which was done promptly
Good company and I would use them again if they sort out the fit issue as a few people are reporting
This company are second to none in all aspects of sales and service. Great coffee and brilliant price. Recommended in all they deliver.
Like others, I purchased Fine Coffee Nespresso equivalent pods for the value since the Nespresso capsules are a bit pricey. We've had our Nespresso Essenza for 5 years now and the Nespresso capsules have gone from .50 to .65 per capsule here in the US. Unfortunately, the Fine Coffee pods would not properly stay in place in the chamber. They continually fell directly through our Essenza capsule slot to the used capsule holder below, not allowing us to close the latch to make coffee! Our Fine Coffee capsules had a slightly smaller diameter (0.015" as measured on my caliper) which was enough for it not to catch in the Nespresso chamber. I could only get it to work if I held the capsule from below and slowly closed the latch so as to catch it. Even then the latch closed much harder than our Nespresso pods, but it did finally make a lungo coffee.
Fine Coffee did refund my purchase in full. So I would absolutely do business with them again if they figure out a way to make this work for my machine.
The coffee is good, ordering easy, the new packaging excellent, speedy delivery and a very fair price if only the empty capsules were collected with the next order as Nespresso does I would have no reservations at all.
I hit upon Fine Coffee Club by accident and have been very impressed. I appreciate the postage being included too. The coffee is good although not to my partners liking so I still use my original supplier for him. I drink gallons of coffee and the competitive pricing means I don't ever feel that I need to resort to instant varieties.
Just a thought, recycling is a big issue so might it be a possibility in the future.
the capsules are not very efficient but a better service than Nespresso
I haven't ever tasted Rwandan coffee before, but it was fantastic, I really like the depth of flavour and crema.
Speedy delivery and nicely packed, a great range of coffee and worked perfectly in my Nespresso U machine.
Tried your green lungo as a replacement for the Nespresso green lungo. Worked fine but lacking in flavour. Unfortunately I'll go back to Nespresso for now.
Good luck with the project!
I found the coffee to be ok but unfortunately I was unable to close the lever on my Magimix coffee machine fully and had to hold it down while the drink was dispensed, my machine works fine with the Nesspresso capsules
I bought this coffee to save money. I normally buy Nespresso and this product came recommended by other ex Nespresso users. I personally will not buy any more. The pods just fit my Nespresso machine (with force) and the coffee is a poor substitute. I am not enjoying my daily coffee 'fix' as I used to do. If you are not too fussed by the quality of your brew it may suit you...but not for me!
The time arrived to buy new coffee pods and the delivery costs seemed high, on searching for a competitor I came across Fine Coffee club.
The ease of purchase and speed of delivery keeps me saying positive things about your organisation, thank you so much.
A nice range of coffees, good flavours, nicely packaged, quick deliveries..
