    If you want cheap pods Coles and Woolies have their own brands at 3.75 for 10. And recently Moccona pods for $3

    So factor in price that the pods are worth about $30-40

    I suggest while the cheapest unit as above is $119 it might be worth spending a little more and get a better machine

    With Fathers Day coming up, you might see some better specials soon.

    So combine these possibilities with this post and you could be on more of a winner if you wait.

    With that this post is great just use it with a better machine deal.

      I have tried those pods and find the nespresso pods are much much nicer. The coffee just tastes way better than the cheapo grocery store ones. I prefer buying from the nespresso store because of this despite the inconvenience and cost.

      I’ve done blinded tests to see if this was my personal bias but nespresso pods came out on top consistently.

    •  

      I've got an Essenza Mini, quite a good little machine.

      I also find the cheap coles pods taste like crap. I haven't yet found a good supermarket alternative to the nespresso pods.

        Try the L'or Ristretto ones when they're on special at Coles/Woolies for $4.50, they're aluminium as well.

          Yep, tried those. Unfortunately still not at good as the Nespresso pods.

          • +2 votes

            @ChickenTalon: I really like Dharkan and have not found anything close to that from another brand. I must say that L’or ristretto for me is a good alternative to the purple/black Nespresso pods (forgot their name) and I have tried at least 10 other brands over the years which were all bad. The funny thing with L’or is that I only like their ristretto, the others have the typical ashy taste most other non-Nespresso pods seem to have.

        Have to agree, Nespresso pods do produce better coffee than compatible pods. I think Moccona was the closest to Nespresso, but it was still 8/10 in comparison.

        But tbh, Nespresso coffee is average at best, and they always suck you in with the cheap machine price to get you buying for pods. I've since moved on to a breville BES870 that gets me close to a proper $4 coffee with the right beans.

        •  

          Moccona and L’or are from the same makers (Douwe Egberts), with Moccona being the cheaper brand. Maybe give the l’Or ones a go?

        I think these are the same guys that do Express Pods and sell Podista (either that or it's amazing coincidence both founders are named Toby…). I quite like the Podista pods. The trick (as they advise you) is only ever do the espresso (or ristretto) shot with your pod machine. Then add water or milk to taste. If you do a lungo shot you'll over-espress the coffee in a pod. That's why it tastes bitter/burnt/ashy.

        • +2 votes

          Agreed.
          Lungo is BS. There's only enough coffee for a short shot, regardless of machine/pod brand.

          I've been through the maze of it all. Aldi bang for buck. Only next step now would be a real machine.

          For milk, BMF600.

    how much are 100 pods worth?

  •  

    Looks like $111 on this link

    https://www.amazon.com.au/DeLonghi-Nespresso-Essenza-Machine...

    Catch has it for $111
    HN & GG have it for $119 (for those with discounted gift cards)
    GG commercial has black $103, white $105

    Also FAQs say you can take your receipt into a Nespresso Boutique and get the capsules there.

    • +3 votes

      The Amazon link you posted doesn't include the Aeroccino 3. Has "Solo" in the name, which usually just means the machine.

      Had a quick check of the other places and all are excluding the Aeroccino. This might be a good option if you don't want it, but for an extra $8 you might as well get it. They sell for $99 on their own, not that it makes any sense to buy it standalone.

    •  

      Thanks for reminding me about my GG commercial membership. Just pulled the trigger on the Essenza with the aeroccino, which is 135.00 (lime green only). I only want the aeroccino and the pods tbh. I’ll give the machine to my bestie.

    Pods are bad for the environment, and pod coffee is barely a step up from instant.

    Bring on the downvotes.

      I only use aluminium pods. More eco-friendly than plastic ones. I then collect them and drop them off in a Nespresso boutique. Is this ok?

    • +5 votes

      Much cheaper in the long run to get an actual coffee machine with a grinder and buy beans. Added bonus is your coffee will actually taste good and coffee grounds can be completed.

      Pods taste real average and are expensive (if you're going nespresso), the only advantage is it's probably 1 minute faster than making a coffee with a machine/grinder

        Too much mess is the problem imo

        • +1 vote

          Maybe it depends on the setup/machine but we don't have too much trouble with mess. Puck goes into a coffee grind bin and we have a mat under our machine which you just wash off every once in a while.

          But yes in comparison pods have next to no mess.

        •  

          Agree with Meulsie, if you're careful the only mess generated (usually a few grinds overflowing from the basket) is very minimal and easily wiped off the bench by your hand. The rest of the process is pretty clean.

      •  

        Yes I agree. I have a sunbeam machine and the Breville smart grinder. Good quality beans are about mid late 30 per kilo.

    Cheap kmart manual coffee anyone?

  • +8 votes

    As a ex-Nespresso lover but now a manual machine (Breville 870) owner & lover I can honestly say that although we used to really, really enjoy our Nespressos the manual machine is easily on par taste wise (even when using cheap ALDI beans!), is far more flexible and generates very little waste but the biggest bonus was the cost savings. The $550 manual machine has now paid itself off purely based on the coffee savings… approx. 80c per Nespresso capsule shot versus approx. 18c per shot from beans which based on our usage took just under 14 months. That was a few months back now and the Breville is still going strong so it's just money in the bank now as well as excellent coffee and close-to-zero waste. The only difference is that it takes a bit longer and can be messy if you're not careful but those factors don't bother me. Nespresso definitely has its place though… I'm not a hater but hopefully this may be food for thought for some and if I had these solid figures earlier we would've made the move sooner for sure.

      I have both and I agree with you. I have an old manual espresso machine and the coffee it makes is better and can customise it easily.

      Having a morning rush or when i need a quick coffee - a quick nespresso and no need to clean up is hard to beat.

      On weekends - espresso machine is what i use. :)

    • +1 vote

      Exactly the same situation. Was on Nespresso for about 5 years. Now on the breville machines. Never looked back and the coffee is so much better. It was hard at the beginning given the ease of Nespresso but I think the breville is just as easy once you get it

    • +3 votes

      I kind of went the other way. I had a proper espresso machine but found maintenance and getting a good shot required a lot of skill. To get the best, you needed to make one shot then throw that away. You also needed to get the tamping just right, as well as the grind and pressure of course, and keep the machine clean with regular descaling etc. Potentially a professional service and pressure test, replacing seals etc once every year or two. I got an aeropress to use at work, was super impressed with the coffee I got out of that, and basically the machine was put to one side and - eventually - went onto the nature strip when I found the tank had gone all manky from disuse and it wasn't worth the cost of fixing. As I'm the only coffee drinker in the house, and tend to only make the one cup in the morning, the Nespresso is just so convenient it's hard to beat. When we have dinner at our place with friends, we get the kids to make the coffee - no way would they be able to cope with a proper espresso machine, but the pod machine is easy as. The kids would also use the milk frother every day to make milo/hot chocolate if they were allowed.

      Basically I used to be one of those coffee snobs who looked down their espresso cups at the pod people - now, well, I have to say I've become a pod person when it makes sense. It reliably makes an acceptable shot of coffee every time with no skill required. Outside of the rushed morning cup, and parties, I go to a cafe with a good barista for proper coffee or use the aeropress…….

      • +1 vote

        Yeah, can totally see your point there! Nothing like a Nespresso/Pod Machine for ultimate convenience. When I first got the Breville I think it took me about 500g-1kg of beans and a good solid hour or two to learn how to use it and refine the settings for those particular beans but once I found the perfect grind, quantity and tamper pressure nothing else was required. I changed bean brands and had to waste a bit to get all the variables right for those beans but again once I found the taste we liked I then locked those settings and can do as many consistently perfect shots from then on without any further waste or adjustment. Bouncing back to the original beans I simply dialled the settings back to those I had success with originally and bingo, zero waste and perfect results so yes, the manual machines do require a bit of fiddling but I found once I put the initial effort in the Breville was rock solid & consistent from then on. I wasn't aware that different beans made such a HUGE difference but now I do :)

        Just use aeropress at home, its what a I do. Pods are terrible and so much more expensive, and its not like aeropress or pour over takes any more time really

        Ah ha,so that was your Lelit Expresso machine and Lelit grinder I recently picked up from the Kerb, your very good. Its working well and making excellent expresso's. Just needed a Portafilter $8 washer replacement. Love when people chuck things and saved me $1100 (not that I would have spent that). Ok doubt it was yours but was a nice find. I agree though, it is a nightmare learning how to use to begin with. Time to buy a proper Tamper :-)

      But does George Clooney or Matt Damon drink the same coffee as you?

      The biggest false comparison people make is the cost… As the nespresso size/weight takes 2 pods to equate! Aldi is better, but still off.

      Fair enough my Glasgow-band-inspired-named-friend.

      Convenience is the first priority around these parts. Any more complicated and I'll need to make the Mrs coffee's myself. I've had a go of a manual machine a few times, just can't seem to get it right. Nespresso comes out tasting better for me.

      I'm sure I could get better with practice… but meh.

Nespresso reserves the right to supplement this offer with alternative coffee capsules or travel mugs, if required, as stated above. No cash alternative will be available in lieu of the stated items.

    I wanted to replace my beaten up aerochino anyhow, so this is a good deal.

    •  

      Better invest in a proper machine than buying a cheap piece that's too expensive to throw away.

      •  

        Dont get me wrong, I 100% understand that a real machine tastes better, but its not about money for me, its about the time.
        This machine is for my quick pre-commute coffee, where I don't have time to do the additional overhead of setting up and cleaning a real machine.

        Its a replacement for instant - not for a real machine. At work I buy it from a barista or make it myself in an actual coffee machine.

    There's also an introductory offer for new members for $99 where you get:

    Price Drop on Amazon Delonghi Nespresso Essenza Mini is now $119

  • +1 vote

    Bought essenza mini + aerocinno combo $109 from amazon au, got the item, and lodged a claim for the free pods and got rejected. Reason? insufficient proof ("The Proof of Purchase image that was submitted in your Coffee Credit claim is in an incorrect format or the image quality is too low and the image cannot be viewed clearly.").

    The proof I provided was the tax invoice pdf from the amazon order, which has my full name and address, the name of the product I bought (with the price I paid), and amazon's detail. I used the pdf invoice because for some reason amazon did not include the usual tiny heat printed packing slip and there was no other paper invoice. And yes, pdf was one of the format they allowed to upload for proof.

    I'm currently emailing nespresso to ask for further clarification on reason of rejection. Awaiting their reply. 25/8

    If the reason was because I didn't provide a scanned paper invoice then I will be happy to print and rescan the digital invoice but isn't that a bit ridiculous?

    Has anyone had the same experience?

    •  

      I did notice that the amazon invoice printed rather small but they accepted my claim just fine within 2 days. I printed to PDF

      •  

        The amazon tax invoice that you can download from your order came as a pdf natively; and this is the invoice I attached to my claim.

        I tried printing it off just now, and it printed fine on A4 paper, very legible and sharp. And of course if you uploaded the pdf directly, it should be able to be zoomed in with no problem.

        I will try to re-scan the invoice i just printed and saved as jpg. Maybe they'll accept the "scanned paper invoice" now? :(

        •  

          I took a screenshot of my Amazon order confirmation and was approved. Also to op, not sure why you have "Prime required" in the title, I bought my through Amazon without Prime.

        •  

          I ended up calling them and they guy who I talk to were also puzzled why my claim got rejected. Anyway I actually did print out the invoice, scan it and save it as jpg and apparently it got approved. Maybe you do need to upload a jpg instead of pdf?

    •  

      Well now I'm nervous, I lodged a claim just then and uploaded the pdf… waiting for the response.

    •  

      Same here, awaiting my response.

      •  

        Just got the email, accepted without issues I’ll get it within 15 days. I used the amazon PDF invoice as well.

            •  

              @LycanP: The extra 10 pods don't show in the offer, they show when you add the "Welcome Offer" to the basket. Not sure what you mean by $10 discount ? The price is still $99.
