Our Favorite Caffesso Capsule: Chelsea Light Roast (Intensity: 4/10) is a high-altitude roast from Guatemala with notes of cinnamon, citrus, and blackberry. HiLine is the best Nespresso-compatible roaster because of their dedication to freshness, and I can’t recommend them enough.
A UK-based company, Caffesso launched in 2012. They tout the 3 C’s that define their company:
Coffee: Caffesso capsules truly are no muss, no fuss and yield a solid coffee beverage with a decent crema. Nothing great, but definitely good considering their price.
Club: If you purchase your capsules through Caffesso’s website, you’ll automatically be enrolled in their Club where you can earn points to redeem for Caffesso products.
Compatibility: Caffesso has gone the distance to ensure compatibility with a wide array of Nespresso machine models. You can read here to see all of the machines they support.
I’ll add a 4th C.
Cost: Caffesso is a touch less expensive than other Nespresso-compatible capsules. While I advocate trying all brands to see what you like, there’s no doubt Caffesso pods are pretty easy on your wallet.
Price Per Pod: Around $0.35
