Sit down, relax and enjoy a nice cup of Espresso while you soak up this news.

A ruling by the French watchdogs against Nespresso (owned by Nestlé) has said that Nespresso must share more information about its machines to enable coffee pod providers to make pods more easily. Nespresso has agreed to comply not only in France, but worldwide.

The French authorities also ruled that Nespresso were using misleading wording in its warranty that encouraged customers to only use their pods. This wording has now changed and Nestlé has confirmed that as long as users meet the terms of the warranty it won’t matter which capsules are used, your warranty will remain valid.

This is great news for Nespresso fans who have previously paid premium prices and had limited choice.

Nespresso pods now cost up to 39p, so a household drinking three cups a day would be spending up to £600 a year for their caffeine hit. The new ruling means you can now choose an artisan coffee roaster, and make great savings.

Caffè Ottavo’s small-batch roasted coffee is now available in 31 countries. Our artisan Italian heritage and delicious range of coffees are a major hit with Nespresso lovers.

Caffè Ottavo’s pods are up to 50% cheaper than Nespresso, meaning a household drinking 3 cups a day could save £300+ a year!

Many Nespresso customers are also concerned about recycling. Nespresso pods are made from aluminium and need to be recycled at special centres. Our coffee pods are recyclable along with all your other household plastic waste, through normal collections. The advantage with this is that you’re not having to ship it especially for recycling.
