The first time I saw a tray of Nespresso, I mistook them for chocolates and exclaimed, "What a beautiful collection of milk tray chocolates !" proceeding to help myself to one. Finally realised that these colourful capsules or pods were actually filled with coffee which can only be bought through Nespresso boutiques or via mail, phone or internet. What's more, they can only be made on a special type of coffee maker -a Nespresso coffee maker. By buying the system, one is committed to only using the Nespresso capsules and this means that the prices of the pods are pretty controlled. Each colour pod indicates a variety of coffee and there are 16 different types altogether, each with its own grade of fineness and aroma. Gourmet coffee taken to the next level.
