Recommended Posts

First of all Nespresso cups can just be ordered online, there is an official website, just google, about 20 baht a capsule

The quality of these original capsules is very good, better then most of the Thai coffee brands in my opinion, and it's very easy to use.

Thank you for all the replies and suggestions.

Yes, give me a 'real brewed' cup of coffee any day, but it's the simplicity and the convenience of plopping in a capsule and in less than a minute I have my morning fix almost instantly!

Yes it would be hell if you had to take 7 minutes to do a few simple steps to make a cup of coffee in the morning.  Speed freaks even without the pills.

Yeah- I bet he buys his chicken from Tesco rather than raising his own and throttling/plucking/eviscerating  them himself when he's hungry...

My only waste is a recyclable paper coffee filter. Nespresso will create a mountain of empty plastic pods. That really puts me off.

As always Google is your friend: cafecaps.com in Bangkok.

Very good quality, close to the originals and way cheaper.

I buy them by the hundred.

Wrong. Nespresso capsules are aluminum. 100 % recycle friendly. 

 

The OP has been advised the capsules are only available by online purchase or at Siam Paragon. Every post following #3  personal options, buy from Hillkoff, take a Moka pot, get some of the cheapest  imported blecch from Makro you can find , buy a completely unrelated capsule product and maker from Dolce Gusto, etc., and of course the thinly veiled passive aggressions  and accusations.  So typical.  

 

The entire subject could be avoided using the search function as the question where? to buy Nespresso capsules in Thailand has come up several times recently in various places on TVF.

Threads seem to be annoying you, it may be better you only use the search and give up on threads

Thanks for putting me straight on that. I've looked on Amazon and Lazada and there seems to be a wide range of prices for the machines. Any recommendations for a good basic machine. Another thing on weighing up the cost. When I have a coffee in the morning it's a mug size which is equivalent to two coffee cups. Does that mean each cap produces a single coffee cup amount.

The various capsule variations are flavor maximized for a lungo or ristetto/espresso pull.

I have the Pixie,  step up from the base model. It has two buttons that are factory set 

at say 40 ml (espresso, shorter higher pressure pull) or Lungo (longer lower pressure pull). Think it is 150ml.

You can also self adjust the pull time/volume somewhat for each button by holding whilst brewing. Off course hot water or milk can be added to make a Americano or other beverage.

 

I'm all for expensive imported machines, getting into brew and pressure settings and self grinding but I have given up in Chiang Mai due to impossible to maintain. Maybe if you buy from a local supplier of Cafes here like the one on Nimmanhemin that will back up their product. Particularly I don' think you can get a decent grinder for less than $500 that works more than a few month, but that is just my opinion. 

 

It's a wonderful product. If the Pixie breaks Nespresso says will send you a new one and you return the broken Machine in the box but I have not had to take them up on that. And no more spilled grounds. Just did that here in Japan today...nice having somebody to clean up after oneself.

 

I really like Darkhan, Kazaar, and Roma. Usually brew capsules into a pyrex beaker and pour directly over ice.

Does any one KNOW if the Nesspresso and Dolce Gusto 'Capsule' are interchangeable, that is work in each others machine ?

Hilkoff repaired my machine when the circuit board failed on site for a few hundred baht. I didn't buy it from them.

 

They will grind the beans to whatever grade you want for free when you buy them. This way you know they are freshly ground at purchase.

 

Fresh coffee vs pods, a no brainer for me.

I've heard of people recycling the pods by making a slit and putting new grounds in.

 

This would require a work permit... :coffee1:
