Cafe Pod

My love for coffee is growing, I look forward every day to a milky frothy coffee and the hardest decision I have to make is which flavour and strength do I choose. I have been trying out CaféPod coffee recently which are Nespresso compatible coffee pods in five different strengths and flavours. I have to say I am mightily impressed with these coffee pods. The water flows through easily, I don’t have to jiggle them about to fit in my Krups Pixie and there is no grainy residue left around the cup which I have found with some other Nespresso compatible brands.


I don’t tend to have a favourite for different times of the day although usually prefer something milder in the morning and building up in strength throughout the day. However you may notice there tends to be a theme in my photos that I have been veering towards Ristretto which has a strength of 10 the most! Hmmmmm.


The coffee comes in strengths of 4 to 10, with Arabica Lungo & Decaff at 4, Smooth at strength 5, Intense at 8 and Ristretto at 10. There is a chocolate theme among Smooth, Intense and Ristretto but as I like my coffee with lots of milk I can’t say that I have noticed it too much. Also the decaff, Smooth, Intense and Ristretto are espressos and the Arabica is a lungo but I like milk with all of them. I don’t find any of them too overpowering or strong.
