Italian espresso

Fortune favours the brave and the fed up. After an almost transcendental experience in a Florence cafe, we decided we couldn’t handle another day of the rubbish pod coffee we’d been drinking in our kitchen in Melbourne. We wanted authentic Italian coffee. They stuff the Italians drink in bars and cafes. So we went to the source and got our hands on the best coffee pods we could find. Then we brought them back, mostly for ourselves, but also so you can drink incredible Italian-made bar coffee in your Nespresso® coffee machine at home… no foreign language skills required.

Compatible with all Nespresso machines

Why pods you ask? Why not buy one of those Transformer-like machines you see rich people with? Because that’s not what Italians drink at home. Those machines are only good in bars, where they’re used by expert hands. Capsule coffee is not just about convenience. Our capsules create an oxygen and moisture-free environment, so your beans won’t lose their flavour like loose coffee does. And they produce the perfect authentic Italian espresso every time. Not to mention, these babies are compatible with all Delonghi/Breville Nespresso® pod machines. They won’t break your machine or void your warranty. For more on that, read this article in The Telegraph.

Just so we’re clear, you can use our pods with the Nespresso® coffee machine you have at home. And no, they won’t break it. They’re made to be compatible. So you’ll be drinking authentic Italian coffee shipped straight to your door without having to get a new machine. Our blends are made from beans sourced fairly and directly from all over the globe and roasted in small batches on Lake Como (that’s where George Clooney lives). The best part? They cost less than the coffee pods you’ll find at the supermarket. And those pods aren’t even made in Italy! It’s bananas.
