Nespresso Pods

Nespresso pods add fun and flavor to your espresso drinks. Espresso used to be nothing more than a caffeinated jolt. It was the boring mainstay of our favorite espresso drinks. Or if we needed a stout pick-me-up in its purest form, we would down the espresso straight up. But how does espresso taste? Strong? Yes. Interesting and flavorful? Not so much. But Nespresso has changed all that. Now you can choose an espresso that suits your unique tastes and your mood. You can even pair your espresso to the foods you eat with it. Stock your kitchen with all the pods (also known as capsules) for unlimited possibilities. Have a coffee party and amaze your friends with the complex variety of tastes and aromas.

Fun to Collect, Display, and Share

The variety of these pods are intriguing in their unique qualities, and they are as much fun to collect as they are to brew and drink. Their architectural shape is truly a thing of design beauty, a bit like a thimble, only sleek and ultra-modern. Each pod has its own vibrant color and exotic name. You will want to have them all. But just when you think you have attained the height of indulgent (yet oh-so-affordable) luxury of a complete collection, Nespresso comes out with a new exquisite collection or limited edition pod that you simply must try.

Many collectors like to show off their collections, and that is just what you are going to want to do as well. The colors are gorgeous, so you won’t want to hide them. Luckily you can buy display racks and even carousels that are custom made to show off the full spectrum of pod colors. Line the pods up like a rainbow, or arrange them in cool patterns.

Or maybe not…You might want to keep your precious pods hidden from view so that you can dramatically reveal your collection to an uninitiated newbie. There are many nifty storage cases and boxes to choose from that keep your collection organized and hidden away.

The Grands Crus

The first stage of your obsession is to get acquainted with the originals. These gems are organized in four ranges: Pure Origine, Espresso, Decaffeinatos, and Lungos.

Pure Origine

Pure Origine are coffees that each represent the unique character of a different legendary coffee producing country. Instead of being a custom blend based solely on taste, these coffees are made 100 % from beans grown in their single country of origin. These collections also support the local ecosystems and the standard of living of the farmers who produce them.
