“Gourmesso - a super Alternative to Nespresso Capsules”

Written on: 24/11/2014 by Marysmark (1 review written)

While in Scotland, the hotel we stayed at had a Nespresso machine. We fell in love with the simplicity of the machine and the espresso and coffee it made. When we returned one of the first things we did was order one. To our surprise was the cost of the Nespresso capsules. We researched capsules produced by other companies. One of the comments made regarding all of the Nespresso-compatable brands were they did not work well and that the flavors were not that good. To the contrary, we… Read Full Review

“The worse coffee ”

Written on: 29/09/2014 by Fran99999 (1 review written)

I never ever had such horrible coffee in my entire life. I will never buy it again, it's like to trash your money. For who loves coffee try it and you'll see if I was right or not. I wonder how they can sell such "thing" as a coffee… Read Full Review

“Try the vanilla flavour!”

Written on: 07/02/2014 by aaruto66 (1 review written)

Although my boyfriend says I am only spoiling the taste of a good espresso, I like my coffee with a bit of extra flavor: chocolate, cocoa, vanilla etc., pretty much everything that can make its taste a bit more "exotic". I completely understand this does not apply to everyone, but if you are like me then read the next couple of lines! A while back I used to buy a vanilla flavored instant coffee and I absolutely loved it! Unfortunately, at some point it became too hard to find, so I had to go… Read Full Review

“Loved it!”

Written on: 22/01/2014 by jamesonnatalia (1 review written)

Placed a small sample order at first to avoid disappointments, such as the ones I had with other Nespresso alternative brands.I liked the product from a visual perspective while going through the website, which was otherwise full of useful information: detailed coffee description, list of compatible machines, as well as some recipes. My coffee arrived in about 5 days and just confirmed my initial expectations. The sample blend I chose was Ristretto Blend Forte, as I wanted to directly compare… Read Full Review

“Highly reccomendable”

Written on: 20/01/2014 by mike_smith668 (1 review written)

If you are having a hectic life style and time is a valuable resource for you, then capsuled coffee machine is definitely the right choice. Thankfully, unlike 5 years ago the market is now full of Nespresso compatible capsules. Bear in mind though that not all of them are keeping up with the Nespresso standards. This was not the case with Gourmesso - the company offers a large variety of coffee blends, including both mild and strong variations, as well as some flavored ones - truly something… Read Full Review

“Extensive choice, some really nice blends”

Written on: 15/01/2014 by dobson.ellinor (1 review written)

What I was most impressed about Gourmesso is the extensive coffee range the company has. If I have to be perfectly frank not all blends match my taste, for example the weaker ones (intensity 1-3). However, there were some exceptional ones such as the Etiopia Blends Forte - strong and intensive, paired with great crema. Highly recommendable to all coffee drinkers who like their coffee short and strong such as myself… Read Full Review

“Loved the flavored blends”

Written on: 13/01/2014

Contrary to most espresso drinkers, I have a long-going passion for flavored coffee variations. I love the strong espresso kick in the morning, but if this can be combined with a slight flavored note, then the coffee gets simply magical. At least to my knowledge Gourmesso is the only company offering flavored blends apart from Nespresso. I dare saying that the excellent characteristics the Gourmesso espresso has, combined with the appealing low price turns it into my favorite brand and… Read Full Review

“Great price, great coffee!”

Written on: 10/01/2014 by daviesst1958 (1 review written)

I am really glad the market for coffee capsules got so radically changed over the past couple of years. This allowed some smaller companies to emerge and as a result you can now find compatible coffee capsules from at least 5 different suppliers apart from Nespresso. With that in mind I dare to say I have tried pretty much all of them and while they all had advantages and disadvantages, none of them really lived up to my expectations. All this changed after I tried Gourmesso - this lovely… Read Full Review

“Excellent value for money!”

Written on: 09/01/2014

While I can spot a difference in taste between Gourmesso and the original Nespresso capsules, I would say this isn't necessarily a bad thing. On the contrary, I quite liked the slightly spicy flavor of Tarrazu Forte, which stood out as my favorite so far. Coffee is conveniently categorized according to its intensity in a scale from 1 to 10, similar to the one Nespresso has. Bearing in mind the considerable number of flavors and blends, especially for such a small company, as well as the… Read Full Review

“Very pleasantly surprised ”

Written on: 08/01/2014

As a dedicated Nespresso customer I have to admit I was quite skeptical at first about the quality of all sorts of alternatives to my beloved companies. The only thing able to change my mind was the really positive review in one of my favorite mummy blogs. Gave it a try with a small order of 3 Boxes (1 Decaf, 1 Flavored and of their stronger blends). All of them were simply amazing! Nice and consistent crema, combined with strong aroma. My husband did not particularly like the the flavored… Read Full Review
