Subject: illy pods vs. Nespresso capsules
 

Did anyone here tried both and would like to comment which of them seems better ?
I have been using the Nespresso capsules for few years, but now needs to buy a new machine

Are pods better or worse than capsules or are they similar ?
Are pods as easy to use as capsules ?
Do pods come individually packed ?

As for pods any machine recommendations ?
I saw illy it taking most the price off with F!F!5 if you commit to using their coffee, is the FF5 any good with pods

Thanks in adavnce

Hi there!

Yes, I have tried both, but I have not been pleased with either.

My experience is that thay are (even) worse.

gabi Said:

Yes.

Some of them do - depending on the brand and where you buy from. You have more choice with pods, thought (especially in terms of where you buy from). If you go for pods, do not go for anything else than individually packed ones.

I hope this helps.
