Millions of people are enjoying the great taste of coffee which is easy and fuss-free to make thanks to machines using single-serve pods. You get that ground-coffee taste quickly and without the hassle of grinding beans and brewing up. Some big brand pods can be expensive, but with Nespresso Compatible Capsules you get all of the flavour at a fraction of the cost.
The charms of George Clooney in Nespresso's advertising campaigns may have sold you on the machine, but the cost of each cup of coffee can set you back quite a bit. Although it's still much cheaper than getting a 'coffee to go' from one of the major stores.
However, there are other pods you can use with your machine which cost much less. Nespresso compatible capsules come in a range of strengths as well as decaffeinated and variety packs, which are very useful if you entertain at home a lot.
These capsules are part of a growing trend overall in the UK in the hot beverages market. Different flavours and types of coffee are a major factor in this growth as well as the coffee-shop culture.
These coffee shops, made famous in the US comedy Friends, have become enormously popular in the UK and have contributed to the growing trend for consuming quality coffee at home. Instant coffee is losing its flavour since these coffee machines and capsules have come on to the market. These pods allow consumers to enjoy the fresh taste of café-quality coffee at home or in the office.
Billions of these pods are sold every year around the world, and the trend is set to continue for the time being. So it's very big business.
Market data firm IRI said the volume of sales from coffee pod products jumped 54% in the UK to the equivalent of 310 million cups of coffee. It's easy to see the attraction for coffee lovers who are pushed for time or who like the efficiency of the machines.
Replacing the pods is simple too, as they are readily available in many stores and supermarkets, or you can buy your pods online, including Nespresso compatible capsules.Please look around the site to find our full range of coffee products, including Nespresso compatible capsules.
