Gourmesso vs. Nespresso® * – The fact-check


CaféPod offer their customers 11 different types of coffee: 4 espressos (one of them decaffeinated) and 7 lungos. At Gourmesso, you will find the larger selection with over 25 varieties! Especially flavoured coffee lovers will find what they are looking for: with eleven different flavours – from chocolate to brittle – we are superior to CaféPod.

If you like extra-strong espresso, you might want to take a look at our Nite Edition – fans of caffeine-free coffee will enjoy our decaf blends! You do not want to commit yourself and would rather try everything out first? Start by ordering one of our numerous trial boxes.

We are particularly proud that our range includes a wide selection of organic coffee. In addition, Gourmesso offers the largest assortment of Fairtrade pods on the market. CaféPod cannot compete with that – you will not find capsules from fair trade or organic labels here.

Do you already have a favorite strain at Nespresso®*? Whether espresso, lungo, decaffeinated or flavoured – here you will find the perfect equivalent:

With an average price of $0.29 per capsule, CaféPod capsules are less expensive than the Nespresso®* originals. And still, they are costlier than our Gourmesso pods. Gourmesso coffee capsules are available from £0.24 to £0.28 each. In a direct comparison of the varieties you can save up to $0.06 per pod when ordering with us.

And the best part: Not only are our pods cheaper, we also pay a lot of attention to where our coffee comes from. This is why all our capsules are Fairtrade certified, meaning we are supporting coffee farmers all over the world. Fair trade strengthens the rights of farmers and workers, and promotes humane working conditions on plantations in developing nations and on emerging markets. Also, certain ecological and economical standards have to be fulfilled in order for a product to receive the certification.

When buying Gourmesso coffee capsules, you save money while contributing to the protection of our environment, and to the improvement of living conditions in the countries of origin.
