Getting there as a Nespresso alternative.,
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?)
Unfortunately, despite the manufacturers advice, these also will NOT work with the fully automatic Nespresso Siemens model 70 (or I assume the nearly mechanically identical 911) - they keep getting jammed in the automatic mechanism. Luckilly we could unblock them quite easily, but please be warned as the manufacturer still insists these work with 'all machines' made before a certain date!
However, I did dig out an old Siemens 30 machine (as basic as they ever were) and they worked just fine, for the review.
These do seem a bit better than the espressopod ones to be honest, but I'm now convinced its the plastic that these copy capsules use that makes the coffee brew slightly less convincingly. This would be a worthy alternative to the Nespresso Ristretto, but not quite as good. And its a shame that I have to report that :(
