Thanks everyone for your thoughts.
I bought some today, the intensity 10 ones and while I didn't think they were as good as the Nespresso ones, they are certainly good enough for a back up and great for those awful times when I have run out of pods and know my Nespresso order is still a day or two away (the panic )

Biscotti - have you tried the reusable ones? I bought a pack off ebay & they have been great so far. I bought some organic fairtade coffee at the markets & used it in there and its comparable to nespresso in mu opinion & works out to about 15c at the most a coffee!

How much are the machines? I want one but we drink alot of coffee so I'm thinking it would cost us a fortune with the pods...

Kmart now sells a Nespresso "compatible" machine for around the same price as the Aldi one, and I have seen quite a few of these compatible machines around now, I think it has something to do with the patent(?) running out or similar? I read an article one night shift long ago regarding it. Nespresso pods are still dearer though.
Both taste delicious!

Put it this way - if you are entertaining you'd want the proper pods.
It's not that time consuming, the most PITA thing is rinsing them. I use a teaspoon and a big container (that holds the coffee) so no mess as it spills into the container. I usually do about 4-5 in one go, and all up it would take me maybe 3 minutes?

I've seen these on EBay but always wondered about the time/mess factor but I think I might give them a go.....maybe as a back up? I used to buy the most beautiful coffee (pre Nespresso days) and I have missed it I will admit
Do you these all the time instead of the Nespresso pods?
