This 'bold coffee experience, full in body with flavours of dark chocolate and ripe red fruits with undertones of clove and a spice-like finish'.
I have already tried the other flavours from CAFÉPOD but didn't find them strong enough to get me through another gruelling shift from elevenses to 2pm!
This hits the mark tho' - TOP of the intensity range - 'STRENGTH : 10 - STRONG'
The VINE package was a sturdy CAFÉPOD cardboard container with four boxes of ten individually sealed pods safely stowed within.
Each 50g box, measuring roughly 9 cm x 9.5 cm x 13.25 cm high is just the right height for my top cupboard shelf, which is an added bonus for me.
Inside each box - 10 x DARK GREY-coloured, individually sealed for freshness PODs.
On opening the easy-tear individual little pod packet you get that unmistakable aroma.....sheer pleasure.....which follows through into a flavoursome cup of coffee. My robust little machine (Nespresso Magimix) copes fine with this type of POD and no extra pressure is required.
On the base of each box:
* 'Recyclable carton and capsule ~ Sachet and capsule film currently not recyclable'
'Best Before : October 2014'
'Clever Coffee Capsules
BIG IDEA. LITTLE POD'
I think they have actually got it!
They cannot be re-cycled - which is a disadvantage, as we now get our used Nespresso Pods collected and taking away.
The box gives good details on the make-up of the coffee - which includes some Indian Robusta beans, as well as Arabicas from South America and Indonesia. It tasted fine, we make it at espresso rather than ristretto quantities (40ml not 25ml). Our regular coffee for our Nespresso machine is their Indriya pod. It is a matter of taste rather than quality, but we prefer the
Indriya to this Cafepod - but this is a very acceptable coffee.
Would I buy more? They are a bit cheaper, and if I couldn't pick up Nespresso Pods or want to order a large quantity to qualify for free P&P, I would happily get some more of these.
I am a great fan of rich tasting aroma coffee, so the flavour of the brewed coffee was just right as a wake-me-up first thing in the morning. The full flavour being neither too weak nor and overly strong that it starts to taste bitter. I have only used this to prepare espresso (for which it is ideal) and not as a base for other options such as mocha cappuccino etc. At about 25p a cup this is actually good value for money for that special coffee experience you may only experience at coffee shops or restaurants. defiantly recommend and buy again.
The capsules are very good in the machine and there seems no problem with the compatibility. The coffee flows well and the pressure on the machine is normal like the original Nespresso pods.
So how is the coffee? The coffee is actually very smooth and aromatic. It is not as strong as the Ristretto by Nespresso, more like a strength 7/8? But what I really like about this coffee is the smoothness. Its less fruity and more mellow. I have tried with both a dash of milk and also straight. With milk the coffee is weakened by some margin, but drink on its own and the coffee is just right. If you are looking for stronger coffee, then this might not be what you are looking for, I quite like this as a casual relaxing coffee and my Nespresso is the one for the morning wake up. So Four out of Five - would have been a full Five if it was full strength.
The coffee is as described, rich and strong, and a bit bitter. Like me in one respect then. Perfect for a late nighter or morning after. I like it.
