Nespresso touches up its Lattissima range

Nespresso’s brand of instant espresso sure does attract a lot of attention, but if you’re after more than an espresso — say something with milk in it — you have to do it yourself, pouring the milk separately.

Tea pods for Nespresso machines: yes, they’re real, but are they any good?

Good news if you’re a tea drinker, because the encapsulated coffee machines can now make tea with specialised tea pods. But with teabags being dirt cheap, are these capsules even worth it?

Simply U: we review Nespresso’s UMilk

There are plenty of coffee pod competitors out there, but only one Nespresso, and this year the big N plans to show how it can improve its entry-level U machine, by cutting out one cord and combining two devices.

Nespresso connects the frother for the UMilk

Encapsulated coffee machines have never been hotter, much like the beverages they dispense, and now to make things easier, Nespresso is connecting its Aeroccino milk frother for a more seamless cappuccino experience.

Different strokes: a cup from the Nespresso pod on the left, a cup from the Piazza D'Oro pod on the right.

Piazza D’Oro fills Nespresso pods: is this better than the real thing?

Nespresso may have the edge on coffee pods and capsules – hardly surprising, since it practically defined and created the industry – but it’s not the only company making them, with an Australian brand trying its hand at making a pod range.
