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 coffee flavour is great but the pods don't seem to fit properly in my machine, not getting punctured well and causing the hot water to leak onto the worktop when th edrip tray gets full(very quickly).

The coffee is not of the same quality as similar products from other suppliers. It lacks intensity, being somewhat weak, which you do not expect of Italian blend.

Not to my taste. I find the taste weak and insipid compared to Lavazza brand. Some people will like it, I'm sure.

I had the impression that it was going to be a really strong coffee. I now realise that I had ordered the wrong strength, it only being strong if I had a tiny cup of it. I want a bug cupful of it for my breakfast. Having so many pods, I can't justify ordering more until these are used up.

After a week or so trying your espresso dolce gusto equivalent pods, I unfortunately find that they are rather weak and slightly insipid.I don't think that I will be reordering with you and I intend returning to my previous supplier.

Paid extra for courier delivery, was given a midday time slot by DPD, waited all afternoon and then got a msg that their driver couldn’t find us (despite delivering to us numerous times before). No more info until the next day when we were given a new time slot after we had left the house for the day. A good product let down by the delivery service. Wasted money paying for it!

Quick delivery but unfortunately I found the coffee I ordered dark roast and expresso too weak and lacking in flavour and unable to use them. Personal taste I suppose

Coffee is good but packaging poor: misprint on the foil wrapper that is difficult to open without tearing the pod itself. Have to use scissors to open safely. When mentioned to customer services told that I would get use to it !

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.

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.?

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.
