As the description of coffee increasingly becomes similar to that of a quality full-bodied wine or an expensive chocolate box selection, there is no argument from me with the above and the amount of packaging does not particularly worry me when it comes to choosing my coffee.
It is all part of the unique and desirable experience, which starts with that fresh, moreish aroma on opening the easy-tear individual little pod packet and follows through into a flavoursome cup of coffee with a thin but perfectly adequate crema.
This is a rich smooth coffee on its own if you like yours strong and dark, but adding milk makes it a longer, lighter affair.
My robust little machine (Nespresso Magimix) copes fine with this type of POD and no extra pressure is required.
The VINE package, which arrived, was a sturdy CAFÉPOD cardboard container with four boxes of ten individually sealed pods safely stowed within.
Each 52g box, measuring roughly 9 cm x 9.5 cm x 13.25 cm high, is just the right for my top cupboard shelf, which is an added bonus.
On the base of each box:
* 'Recyclable carton and capsule ~ Sachet and capsule film currently not recyclable
The black/brown pods dissect easily, as I continue to pile my coffee remains around the sunflowers in the continuing struggle with the midnight feasts of the slug and snail population!
'Best Before July 2015'...on my batch, but I'll be ordering some more way before then!

Anyway, onto this particular product. I've used the pods in my machine at home and also dropped a couple of boxes off with the IT crew in order that I can also enjoy them at work. The consensus among the four of us is that the pods produce a good, medium
espresso with a nice taste.
Cheaper than Nescafe pods, they offer a tangy, vibrant alternative to the 'official' product, have a decent aroma and come at a fair price.
They'll do for me, Tommy!
Like a lot of the non-Nespresso capsules these come in individually foil wrapped pouches in boxes of 10, so they will in no way fit through anyones letterbox like some others and Nespresso branded ones do. However these are a very good price for how many you get, especially when taking off the postage that Nespresso charge.
The design of the capsules is one of the better I've seen (I've tried quite a few now), the plastic is quite hard so is not pierced at all, but there are ready made perforations at the back for the water to be forced through, at the front is a layer of plastic with perforations also, the coffee is forced through fine, though you only get around 2-3 seconds worth of pure black coffee through, which is fine for me because I always have milk. It is strange why Cafe Pod don't foil wrap the front and use less thick plastic so they don't have to use so much packaging, but it is good to see they've dealt with this by already putting holes in the back so you don't worry about your machine taking damage.
Overall I'm impressed and will be buying these in the future, like I already do a previous Cafe Pod line I have previously tried.
