Lavazza compatible coffee pods are a great alternative to use with your Nespresso machine. However, using compatible coffee pods raises questions. Why would you want to use compatible coffee pods? Will they be as good as the original pods? Are they cheaper than the original pods? Are they compostable? Are there as many flavours available?
These are just a few of the questions people that are new to compatible coffee pods might want answers to. Below, we’ll try to answer these questions and provide all the information you need to make an informed decision and continue to enjoy your favourite beverage, whether that’s a flat white, straight up espresso, or a cappuccino.
As Ireland’s premier supplier of great quality Italian coffee, we’re perfectly placed to answer all your coffee related questions.
Why would you want to use compatible coffee pods?
If you’ve invested in a Nespresso coffee machine and you want to try a little more variety, use different coffees, or simply save some money, then compatible coffee pods can offer all the variety you want without having to invest in a different machine.
Some people will use them to offer a wider variety of flavours, while others will exclusively use compatible coffee pods. Trying other compatibles in your Nespresso machine is the best way to discover what you like.
Are they as good as the original pods?
The type of coffee you prefer is often a very personal choice. However, with Lavazza compatible coffee pods you know you’re buying a quality product that will get your taste buds tingling. As Italy’s favourite coffee producer, Lavazza has over 120 years of experience producing coffee. We’ve also benefitted from the Luigi Lavazza Innovation Centre since 1979. The Centre’s dedicated to researching coffee, it’s consumption, and the effects it can have.
With all this history and experience you can rest assured every product that comes out of Lavazza is of the highest quality.
Are Lavazza’s compatible coffee pods compostable?
Lavazza was one of the first companies to introduce compostable coffee pods. They have been committed to ensuring economic and environmental responsibility is at the core of the brand. In 2004 they started the Giuseppe e Pericles Lavazza Foundation, which is a non-profit organisation that works to improve the standard of living and economical prosperity in coffee-producing countries.
The Lavazza a Modo Mio capsules all feature the Eco Caps lettering, as do the Nespresso compatible pods. The Nespresso pods are 100% compatible and 100% compostable. When aluminium coffee pods are estimated to take between 150 and 500 years to break down, the need for compostable pods was great.
They are safe to put straight into your household food waste bin and don’t need any special treatment, like some other pods do. In fact, Nespresso estimates that only a little over 20% of their coffee pods are currently recycled, which is bad news for the environment. With Lavazza you’re guaranteed premium quality coffee that is also guilt-free.
Are there as many flavours available?
Lavazza has created 5 carefully selected blends for their compatible coffee pods, and the range will expand in the near future. As well as all being Eco Caps, they also utilise Lavazza’s ‘aroma safe’ technology. This system ensures no oxygen enters the pods, which keeps the coffee fresh and guarantees the best in-cup results for the entire shelf life of the coffee.
