Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My reviews of Carte Noire capsules are the same (as they function and perform the same), but differ in the review of taste.

These are individually wrapped plastic capsules that when opened release a burst of roast coffee aroma that floods the senses. Even my wife, who is not a coffee drinker commented on the alluring aroma.

I have some reservations over plastic capsules as some I have tried have failed to puncture correctly and this has led to weak coffee and wasted capsules. Pre-perforated plastic capsules have performed better, but these are not pre-perforated and are sealed, so I wasn't expecting them to work as well.

The capsules fit perfectly in my Nespresso machine and I set the coffee to lungo. I was pleasantly surprised when the coffee started to flow as if I had put in an aluminium capsule. The coffee amount seemed to be just right and there was little evidence of back feed of water where it had failed to push through the capsule. the real quantity test is that my super-size coffee mug takes 2 lungos and milk set to the latte mark in my Aerocchino. With Nespresso capsules this gives me a full mug of Latte. With the Carte Noire capsules the level was just short, which means they were performing as well as the aluminium Nespresso capsules. Flow test passed!

Of course the quantity is a moot point if the coffee doesn't taste right. I prefer dark and bold coffees with heavy earthy tastes. This is much weaker than I would normally drink as it at the middle of the mild range of coffees. I am not saying that it is a bad thing as I appreciate that everybody has different preferences. If like me you prefer bold coffees, then you may find this lacking in taste. If you prefer milder coffees then this may well satisfy your taste buds and not be overwhelming.

I've tried all the Carte Noir capsules for Nespresso machines and don't rate any of them as highly as genuine Nespresso capsules. These (No. 3) are the weakest and least enjoyable, for me, with a fairly poor crema.

They come in excessive packaging, each capsule being foil-wrapped, and they're not recyclable. The foil wrapping means they take up unnecessary space and have to be opened individually. They sometimes stick in the machine, too.

Their saving grace is, of course, price. At less than 20p each, the stronger capsules are good value, if that's the most important aspect. No. 5 have a good flavour but 7 and 9 are stronger. I'll be sticking to the real thing.

Firstly the bad points, which I admit are trivial, but nevertheless deserve a mention. These capsules are individually wrapped which means tearing open the packaging and discarding it, a procedure which takes only one or two seconds, but not quite as easy as just grabbing a Nespresso capsule from the cube. Secondly they are not recyclable, so if you are using a mixture of these and the genuine capsules you have to sort through the used capsules, again hardly a chore.
The flavour is a very personal choice, I found them a bit weak and insipid and prefer the No. 7, but others may well dispute this.
The winning thing is the price, significantly cheaper than Nespresso capsules and obviously that is an important factor.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These are offered as an alternative to genuine Nespresso pods so it is only fair that they are compared to them. I used a Magimix Pixie machine.
As far as the coffee goes it was very smooth and mild with no hint of bitterness but lacked the coffee punch of a Nespresso pod.
The pods do not match up to the originals though. I found my machine sometimes sounded strange when using this pod
I also found a lot of coffee in the drip tray indicating an unsatisfactory seal. In addition you also have to separate them for recycling.

Having had these for a while I have to add that three pods have failed to pierce and produced no coffee. That has never happened in hundreds of Nespresso pods.

I like a good strong coffee first thing in the morning to start ther day. These capsules worked OK but the resultant brew was a bit mild for my taste, bettre suited for lunchtime.

The price is good so I will try some number 7 or 9

Yukkity Yuk is the only way i can describe these.

I received one box to try for free but i could not even choke down 1 cup. Disgusting.

Tasted like dirt mixed with water.

Carte Noire Espresso No 3 Delicat 10 Coffee Capsules 53 g (Pack of 8)

This box contains 10 individual capsules for Nespresso machines. Check compatibility with your machine as some of the Krups ones won’t work with these according to the information on Amazon.
These work fine in out Nespresso Mini machine from 2012

Packaging.
These pods are packed in foil for freshness but there is a lot of packaging which may concern some.

In use.
They work just like another pod, just place the pod in the holder and press go and that’s all there is to it in our machine being a basic one.

Taste.
These are the number 3 version and I also have the number 5. I prefer the number 5 as it has a bit more bite. This type 3 coffee is very mild but I do prefer the number 5 version as it has more texture and bite. This is subjective as taste is a personal thing. However, these pods and machines make a much better coffee than anything from a jar in my opinion. The coffee making process has been made simple for real coffee. No more percolators or mess !

Overall.
Compared to going out to a coffee shop these make nice coffee economically. I like the taste and convenience, the coffee is ready in less than a minute !
