Gourmesso vs. Pelini – The fact-check


Pellini currently offers its customers 7 different types of coffee, all of which are espressos (one of them decaffeinated). At Gourmesso, you will find the larger selection with over 25 varieties! Apart from espresso, we also offer a selection of lungos, as well as different decaffeinated varieties. Especially flavoured coffee lovers will find what they are looking for: with eleven different flavours – from chocolate to brittle – we are superior to Pellini.

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. Pellini cannot compete with that – while their assortment does include one organic coffee, you will not find capsules with Fairtrade certification here.

With an average price of $0.39 per capsule, Pellini capsules are even more expensive than the Nespresso®* originals. Gourmesso coffee capsules are available from £0.24 to £0.28 each. In a direct comparison of the varieties you can save up to £0.15 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.
