Cost of Nespresso capsules,
This review is from: Nespresso Ristretto Capsules (Nespresso Machines - 10 capsules) (Misc.)
The product itself is very good, but the Amazon price being 3 times that of the direct purchase from the manufacturors can be only described as 'RIP-OFF'. Does anyone from Amazon look at these comments and what's more are they doing anything abouth the prices to make their product more competetive in the market place?
Maybe because they have been so successful so far, they dont bother with the 'one-off'comments even though they ask for consumers opinions.
No, we wont buy this product from them at their hugely inflated price and we shall tell others not to either.

I am not surprised that Amazon sells the coffee capsules 3 times over, what surprises me is the people who buys them..............

Nespresso Fortissio Lungo Capsules (Nespresso Machines - 10 capsules)
I was very disappointed to find Amazon charging such high prices for the Nespresso capsules. The Nestles marketing people have made these available 'over the counter' only at Harrods and Selfridges, not very helpful for me as I live in the West Country! For such folk it becomes economical, to avoid a significant carriage charge, to order capsules in quantities of 200 minimum on line, not by 'phone as when using this latter method to order the carriage charge still applies.The cost of my last two orders for 200 capsules was approximately £60 each , so I was looking to source them at a reasonable price and in quantites of my choosing. I didn't realise when I bought the machine from John Lewis that they are not allowed to sell the capsules !

Thank you for this review. I have been buying nespresso capsules from Amazon for 3 years assuming them to be the cheapest. I had a look just now and ordered from the official nespresso website and can't believe how much cheaper they are from the official website. Also you can tailor your order to exactly what you need on the official website. I feel that I have been ripped off for years! Thank you coffee adict!

why oh why are you people still buying (and then moaning) about the capsule prices here on Amazon ? If your a coffee person , then would already have knowledge of the Nespresso website and buy from there
