At Gourmesso you will find the larger selection with over 25 varieties! Especially flavored coffee lovers will find what they are looking for: with eleven different flavors – from chocolate to brittle – we are superior to Café Liégeois.

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 also offers the largest assortment of Fairtrade pods on the market.

With an average price of $0,60 per capsule, Café Liégeois pods are cheaper than the Nespresso originals, yet still costlier than our Gourmesso pods. Gourmesso coffee capsules are available from $0.46 to $0.56 each. On average, you save up to $0.11 per capsule when ordering with us.

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 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.
