Carte Noire Espresso No 3 Elegant 10 Coffee Capsul&hellip by Carte Noire
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I used these in my M100A machine, and they worked fine. They are plastic bodied and individually wrapped in an air-tight packet. So tear open this and insert in the normal way.

Illy Monoarabica Brazilian Coffee Beans 250 g by Illy
5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended, 2 July 2014
These beans grind very nicely for my espresso machine (better than many other beans), and have a great taste. Although these are more expensive than other beans I have used, I find that you use less for the same strength. After I queried the price as being higher than Waitrose, they have now dropped the price significantly. I also recommend the Ethiopian offering onthe same range.
