Dolce Gusto reuseable pods?

paora-tm, Aug 3, 5:01am
As seen on aliexpress. There are two types - some for a couple of dollars each and others a little more expensive. Have you tried them? Are they any good?

Do they grow under the sea?

paora-tm, Aug 3, 5:56am
Odd question. Why would you ask that?

Isn't great? Perplexing people is a rare and entertaining skill.

You would be the most perplexing person on the whole of the message board. I seem to annoy you. good!

rainrain1, Aug 3, 6:34am
I don't know what they are . sorry !
And it was a bit of tongue in cheek.
I have since googled :-)

I didn't even mind. Just joining the fun. lol

PS. For the uninformed - Nescafe Dolce Gusto machines are coffee makers which use prefilled disposable pods. The machines should be given away - Nescafe make a killing by selling the pods. They're a bit like printers where we get stung with cartridge prices. :)

Now you are just reverting to ordinary. You never annoy me. I find you very entertaining when not being ordinary. However, your reactions to me are always unpleasant. Maybe I annoy you.

No, I think you're probably luffly, but it's hard to tell on the message board.

Don't know about reusable but they can be recycled.I agree about the printer/cartridge analogy! I buy most pods from the supermarket at a little under $10 per packet and the Cortado (which are not sold in NZ) from They sell boxes of DG compatible capsules at $56.65 for 96 capsules, including delivery from Australia.

Thanks for that - I think. Personally I'm stuck with buying genuine capsules as I like Mocha, Cafe Au Lait and Latte Macchioto . and occasionally Chocoletto. Someone else however likes Americano, Americano Intenso and Expresso Intenso. Which of these compatibles would match those?

Sorry I only buy the Cortado so can't help with the Americano/Expresso question.

Just realised they're not much cheaper anyway. Was probably thinking about the price of the ones which require two pods for a cup.
