Excellent personal service. I used to buy ESE pods from The Coffee pod for many years but after switched to “Dolche Gusto” machine I stopped. I recently saw and advert for them and when I saw they sell pods for my machine I jumped straight back in and ordered a couple of boxes. I’m now coffee aficionado but I know what I like. Great choices, great coffee and the icing on the cake the customer service. I got a phone call from Anne saying one of the coffees I’d ordered wasn’t due in stock for a week did I want to wait or have something else. She asked if I wanted to choose or let them pick an alternative I let them choose and I’m so pleased with it I’ll definitely have some more in my next order. And there will definite be more orders as apart from the great coffees the price is so much cheaper than the alternatives!

As for your reply to my previous review, let me make myself perfectly clear so that you are not unsure anymore. I selected the Slovak Republic as the country of delivery only because the drop-down list of countries of delivery let me select it. Regarding the shipping method, in my first order I chose “International Courier Tracked” (see the first screenshot attached). In my second order which I placed because you had rejected the first one – without contacting me (I did not receive any message from you on PayPal), nor replying to my e-mail sent to you using your website contact form – I had no possibility to choose the shipping method, i. e. the “Courier Delivery Sunday (uk Mainland)” shipping method (see the second screenshot attached) was pre-selected and there was no option to change it to another method. It was, however, still possible to select the Slovak Republic from the drop-down list, and thus, I supposed that I would be charged with the shipping costs later on. It is just as simple as that – plus, on your homepage you state that you “ship worldwide to most countries” (see the third screenshot attached). However, the drop-down list of countries of delivery consists only of 9 countries at the moment. For your information, there are 195 countries in the world. I hope that everything is understandable to you now and I wish you good luck with your “true customers” as you called them on this site in another review reply.

The last delivery had a large number of broken pods, not something that I have been used to over some time. I have bought some more, the first two are OK so I hope that the rest will be good.

If you want cheap coffee pods that are poorly manufactured, melt and separate in your machine and cause damage to it then these cheaply made pods are just what you've been looking for! I can't comment on the flavour as it was undrinkable on each occasion we tried to use them before giving up. On top of this you get Bob from the Coffee Pod company suggesting it's your fault and that there can't possibly be anything wrong with their product. I hesitate to call it customer service as i was made to feel like the villain under email interrogation and there was no service. I sent photos clearly supporting my problem but all to no avail with Bob. It was me or my machines fault and that was the end of it. Refused to send me a returns label to get a refund. I would have left zero stars but it wouldn't let me. My machine works perfectly with every other pod brand I've used including Nespresso, M&S, ALDI & Morrissons. These pods from The Coffee Pod are really poorly put together. Be warned. Buy at your own risk.

We do all we can, but sometimes customers just want to do what they want to do, they don't want to use the product correctly, they don't want to use it in a proper machine, they don't want a refund, they just want to blackmail a business into doing what they want. It takes a temperature of over 200' C to 'melt' a capsule, a coffee machine should NOT have a temperature of more then 95' C I trust that our true customers will see this review for what it is...................................................................

I have enjoyed the regular capsules in the past However I now need to drink de-caf for health reasons When I came to order, the first option that included de-caf read Mixed Box of 50 Compatible with Decaf. Lavazza A Modo Mio' capsules I ordered this box and then found that it only contained 5 de-caf capsules I have not been able to convince the firm that this description is misleading so I have now had to bear the cost of returning them which I feel is unfair. Otherwise everything about the product itself is excellent

Hi Rick, as we said there is no problem in exchanging the items and US paying the postage to send you the goods. There is a complete list of what the box contains on the web, so that customers know what they are ordering, but still not sure why 'Mixed Box with Decaf' is misleading? as we also have a 'Mixed Box' available without DeCaf.?

The foil wrapper tends to get caught up with the coffee pod and tears when openening

Coffee is good and I liked being able to order various flavours in one pack. Each pod makes a small espresso - no possibility of making it into a lunga but they are espresso pods after all. So far flavour is good. Only issue is that each pod is individually wrapped. As I’ve gone over to an espresso machine to be environmentally friendly (I was using plastic pods before) it is a real waste to have wrapping on every pod. They were also delivered in larger plastic bags. I’d rather buy in larger packs of maybe 20, and store in an airtight container at home or simply stick to ground coffee.

Hi, the problem with coffee is that it is one of the hardest products to keep fresh, the enemy of coffee is oxygen, which is why each ESE coffee pod is individually wrapped in a protective foil, and filled with Nitrogen so that there is no oxygen in contact with the coffee. Oxygen will make coffee louse its flavour, and also have a bitterness to the taste within hours, so keeping coffee in an 'airtight' container would be great apart from the fact that there is already air inside the container when you put the lid on first time, and each time you open the lid its fresh air being trapped inside each time, so at the moment it is the only way. We have trialed compostable materials but the materials only have a short shelf life before the oxygen barrier breaks down, but we keep on looking.

I ordered some coffee pods on Sunday 8 August, but they were not delivered until Saturday morning (14 August). Normally they would come in 1 - 2 days.
