If you guys have been hanging out around here, you probably know I LOVE coffee! In fact, I drink several cups of brewed coffee daily as well as espresso all day long. For that I use my Opus icoffee and my Nespresso Pixie.
The Nespresso machine makes extraordinary espresso quick and easy right in your own home. The only drawback has been that they had the market cornered on the coffee so you were tied to buying the capsules direct from Nespresso.
Over the last year, we’ve seen a few new options pop up that are compatible with the Nespresso machines to give you more options. Yay!
The nice folks over at Gourmesso sent me a selection of espresso pods to try in my Nespresso Pixie to get an idea of the quality of their compatible product.
One of the first things I notice is the very large variety of espresso pods available from Gourmesso from flavored, decaf, fair trade and more. I’ve had a chance to try many of them now and I have to say, I think they are fantastic!
They come in boxes of 10 capsules with 5 sealed packets of 2 capsules inside to keep them fresh. The capsules are clear, not colored like the Nespresso brand, but produce an equally great cup of coffee!
My favorite is the chocolate flavored espresso. SO good!
