Usually I'm only interested in the real thing, no matter how many colas you buy they never taste like the real thing ....... Well you can keep overpaying for espresso capsules or get the se thing for a fraction of the price. Fine coffee club are a five star organisation, go on give them a try!!!
There is clearly a gap in the market for a rival N'espresso product which is compatible with their machines. Alas, this isn't filling it. The whole experience is average - the bulky packaging, the smell when you open the small satchets that contain the pods, the aroma and then finally the coffee. Awful. You have to use multiple pods to get close to the right strength and even then the flavour is poor. N'espresso may be more expensive but not by much and the difference is more than justified. Disappointing.
Really enjoyed the coffee, I will beating a new order for some more but I think after a while I may be looking for some extra choices. It would be a good idea to do some sort of loyalty programme for customers?
I have little to say other than I regard my dealing with you to be straightforward and professional. Your Coffee is exactly what I expected it to be of good quality and good value. I will be happy to do business with you in the future.
Takes longer to come through my machine. Decaffinated quite weak but taste pleasant. Excellent delivery service. Don't just leave at the door for someone to lift.
I'm sure the coffee is of high quality, and the company were very quick to dispatch and deliver. However, the capsules just don't work properly in my Nespresso machine. I have a Pixie machine. The water seems to get "backed up" and very little comes into the cup, often just dripping. Some capsules the machine just gives up and stops, other times it will continue trying - often having to wait over a minute to complete.
If I instead use an "official" capsule, then all works fine, so I know it's not my machine (which is less than a month old).
They seem to have a good returns policy, so I will be trying to send them back. Would recommend trying just a small order to see if they work with your machine first, before buying loads like I did!
Sadly our experiences with the Fine Coffee Club capsules have been disappointing. For the record, the capsules although the same size as the Nespresso ones are packaged in such a way as they take up much more space. We also noticed that there is no best before date on the boxes again unlike Nesp. We bought several different flavours but the performance of them all gave similar problems. The plastic capsules fitted our Nespresso machine easily but frequently it failed to pump the water through the capsule, the flow steadily reducing until the machine cut out. This also happened with a friend's machine almost new machine. Neither of us has had any trouble with the Nesp capsules. I now routinely make multiple perforations with a thin metal skewer in both ends of the capsules and flow is OK. Sadly the flavour is not as good as that of the Nesp range. Unlike Nesp coffee, FCC coffee is in contact with the air contained within the outer packaging. OK, this is a small volume but I do wonder how much of a difference it makes. Neither the aroma, the crema or the coffee flavour come up to the standard of the Nespresso equivalent. We have taken to using two capsules rather than one so as to get a decent cup, though of course this negates any price advantage over Nesp. I'm very sad to be giving such a poor opinion as I would much rather not buy from multinational companies, but i think we shall be reverting to Nespresso Capsules when our present FCC ones are finished.
Not as good as the real mcoy ! Should we be paying these prices ? Water flow very slow and requires 2 pods for a decent coffee so not realy cost effective ! A response would be welcome.
We are enjoying the coffee very much but find the packaging rather bulky. As Nespresso users we take coffee capsules to our homes in Spain and South Africa. The way fine coffee capsules are packed will make this rather difficult.
Two pods ( Intense Espresso) and it begins to give the coffee taste I was looking for. However , this negates the better pricing per shot against Nespresso Ristretto. Maybe a higher barrier packaging would help retain the flavour , one of the advantages of the aluminium capsules used by Nespresso.
Having said that , I am enjoying them , will certainly buy again and it is good that there is now an alternative compatible option for my espresso machine.
Good concept, good pricing model (undercuts the competition), good customer service, good packaging... HOWEVER, inferior product quality and unpalletable taste.
Poor experience with customer services, raised point that 20% advertised discount hadnt been applied & sent two examples of proof, felt like a liar trying to prove my point, didnt get any help from CS who continued to make excuses.
On plus side the product arrived on time & whilst i trialled several samples & have clear favourite i wont re visit this site & will pay the extra pennies in future.
The coffee capsules provided by the Fine Coffee Club are compatible with a Nespresso machine and approximately 20% cheaper. The ordering process is easy and the delivery is fast and efficient. Highly recommended.
Its great to have competitor to Nespresso own brand which are overpriced. Product is good
The coffee is fine no pun intended we are getting used to it, we will probably alternate between Nesspresso & yourselves we are experiencing flow problems wth the capsule but nothing major however there seems to be quite a lot of coffee in the packaging.
We have been very satisfied with the prompt delivery times and the coffee has been very satisfactory. Perhaps more choice in the capsules would be good, but what you are offering has fulfilled our needs.
Love my nespresso and we go through a lot of coffee which adds up!! So thought I'd browse the Internet to see if I could get it cheaper. I found The Fine Coffee clubs prices very reasonable so thought I'd give them a shot! I was amazed at how quickly they delivered and really impressed with the quality of the coffee. I would highly recommend them!!
I'm not sure whether you are requesting a review of the website, the purchasing experience or the coffee. The first two were fine and if that is your purpose then stop reading now. The coffee was a real disappointment. This is a direct competitor to nesspresso pods and they don't measure up on any scale. The look and feel is substandard. The fact that the pods are not airtight leads to additional packaging which makes storage less satisfactory. The coffee itself is a disappointment. In particular, the decaffeinated is like dishwater if taken lungo - it needs two pods to match one nesspresso decaf lungo, which more than offsets the 20% price saving. We won't be purchasing from the fine coffee club again!
Really happy with the coffee, improved capsules are good, value for money excellent. The Website is good and easy to use.
