DeLonghi adds an LCD to Nespresso to make espresso really easy

Like most Australians, our love affair with coffee is a constant one, and partially thanks to the caffeine injection we just had, we’re buzzing about a new Nespresso machine DeLonghi has engineered.

Consumers have quite a few choices when it comes to trying out one of the encapsulated coffee machines that make up the Nespresso range, and they’re about to get one more, with Breville adding a newbie to the mix.

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.

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.

Start with the coffee

GadgetGuy Asks: can Nespresso pods be used and reused with other coffee?
