Stainless Steel Refillable Coffee Capsule - Zurich and border with Aargau

Hi,


I ordered online 2 stainless steel refillable coffee capsules compatible with Nespresso system: Essenza, U, CitiZ (Not Turmix 170- my machine), Gran Maestra, Creatista, Maestria, Pixie, Prodigio, Lattissima+, Concept, Le Cube, Inissia, WACACO Minipresso.


Please check the attached photo.



I have to give up on them as they are too small for my machine.



Price: CHF 8/ piece. Most items like this cost CHF 25-30/ piece.


If nobody claims them by the end of this week, I will send them back to where they come from.



Pick-up in Zurich city or in the bordering Aargau villages (bus 231, PostBus 215, 245).

The model of these ones is NS. On capsulone.com, this model doesn't show anymore. On the Intructions paper I received, it says the capsule is compatible with Nespresso machines released after 2010.

Re: Stainless Steel Refillable Coffee Capsule - Zurich and border with Aargau

Quick question please. Did you buy these from the ads seen on Facebook? If so, what's the quality like? I've been looking at getting one for our Tchibo.

Yes, from FB ads. My first time buying, so because I cannot use it cause it's too small, i cannot give feedback.

Why is it too small? Is your machine not among those listed, or indeed not actually a genuine Nesspresso one at all?

The model of Nespresso Turmix I have was released in 2009 or 2010 (I've been using this machine since end of September or beginning of October. I tried so many times to put the metal capsule in and it just slipped through without me opening the lid of the machine. If you look closer at the pic I posted, you'll see the comparison. The other capsule in the picture is 1 that fits my machine. I have plastic refillable ones, however I'm looking for a stainless steel capsule. I prefer fresh coffee prepared fast.

Re: Stainless Steel Refillable Coffee Capsule - Zurich and border with Aargau

Nespresso capsules have never changed in size. Originally the seal was in the machine, now it is incorporated into the capsule.


Compatible doesn't necessarily mean they will work, as you have found out

A lot of different capsules will fit in all machines but will not fit in the older piston driven Nespresso models like some Jura and Turmix models.

Mistake easily made, not all sellers give proper info, but for example even Denner states it clearly that capsules do not fit all Nespresso machines.

(Besides that we also have Nespresso Vertuo which has its own size today.)

Original Nespresso capsules made by Nespresso are standard size and have never changed and fit all Nespresso machines.


Nespresso also make 3 different types of capsules now, original capsule, pancake capsule and the new Vertuo capsule, they too have never changed in shape and won't.


The machines were re-engineered about 10-15 years ago in an attempt to protect their patent by moving the seal from the machine and incorporating it into the capsule which is needed as their is 19 bar pression comming from the pump.


This movew was not entirely successful for Nespresso and since have given up protecting their patent against copies, prefering to highlight the quality of their product.


The sales are down from the peak times before the competition entered the market.


At one time, Nespresso accounted for 3% of Nestle's total turnover and about 30% of their total net profit !!


The cost price of a Nespresso capsule is between Chf 0.08 and 0.12 per capsule.

Nothing of that changes the fact that many of the non Nestle capsules will not fit all Nespresso machines since they simply are not the same.

Re: Stainless Steel Refillable Coffee Capsule - Zurich and border with Aargau

I eventually got a refund and gave them for free to someone. The website I ordered from did not accept product return.


Then I ordered something else from the same website and this one is compatible with my Turmix machine: iCalifas brand (attached)
