We are aware that customers have different tastes. It is rare that our customers order only one type of espresso, lungo or flavored coffee. A survey has shown that 60% of our customers prefer to drink different types of coffee and different intensities of coffee at different times of the day. We are able to offer you over 25 varieties of coffee capsules filled with the finest coffee from a wide range of cultivation areas, which is uncommon in the compatible capsule market.

Gourmesso Intensities!

In order to make your choice easier, our coffee pods are based on the intensity scale, which many customers already familiar with from Nespresso's website. Our 25+ coffee varieties offer a range of intensities from 3 - 12, where 3 is a rather mild coffee and coffees with the intensity 12 are very strong. The intensity of the coffee is influenced not only by the origin of the beans, but also by the roasting process. Many of our customers prefer the varieties with higher intensities. Our Espresso with the lowest intensity is the Brasile Blend Dolce. In 2014 it won the WDR Nespresso machine coffee taste test competition. 

Compatibility With Nespresso Machines

Concerning compatibility, there shouldn’t be any problems with products explicitly declared to be compatible with Nespresso machines. However there are several customer reviews complaining about this particular problem. Problems can occur during the brewing process or even beforehand. The material of some capsules are too rigid to work properly in OriginalLine Nespresso machines. Compatible coffee capsules for Nespresso machines made by Gourmesso are tested with all available OriginalLine machines throughout their entire development process to ensure their functionality.
