40 x Compatible Capsules for Nespresso Machines (4&hellip by Coffee Club

I'm genuinely surprised by some of the other comments on these capsules. I found the coffee was fresh, smelled great when I opened the packs and fitted into my Pixi Nespresso machine without any issue. I'm a lungo fan and found the coffee was perfect - not overly strong but very reasonable in a latte/cappuccino. I do think the pricing on Amazon is a bit bonkers - they should be less expensive than the market leader but once they get that right they're onto a winner in my opinion. About time we can break away from the Nespresso pod monopoly!

If you have an all consuming passion to be rich (and I don't mean 'comfortably off', I mean STINKING), read this book. Dennis' uncompromising view of the path to massive financial success is refreshingly honest, and he makes no bones about the personal sacrifices you'll have to make to follow in his footsteps. Unlike any other 'get rich qick' gurus, the author advocates a need to commit, body and soul, to your goals - and that you're in all likelihood going to have to work damn hard and cheese a lot of people off along the way. I liked his style, loose and witty; and the self deprecating view of his all-too-human flaws shows you Felix is a flawed man like the rest of us - but what seperates… Read more
