OK for the price,
This review is from: Carte Noire Espresso No 3 Elegant 10 Coffee Capsules 53 g(Pack of 8) (Grocery)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
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.
