When it comes to Nespresso-compatible capsules, we mainly look for those brands that offer us the best coffee, the one that pleases our palate, without ruining our pockets. In that sense, Gourmesso capsules are excellent candidates.
The capsules for Nespresso of the Gourmesso brand stand out for their excellent value for money, but also for offering a wide variety of coffees of different intensities and an excellent selection of flavoured coffees.
Gourmesso is a German gourmet coffee company that has been awarded several distinctions and is unanimously considered the highest quality gourmet coffee company of all Nespresso-compatible capsules on the market. As with all gourmet coffee companies, Gourmesso roasts its own beans and produces its coffees from Arabica and Robusta varieties from the most select plantations around the world. Gourmesso’s coffee has origins as diverse as India, Africa and South America.
The Gourmesso brand may not be as well known as other brands we have talked about on our website, but it is one of the best options for those looking for cheap Nespresso-compatible capsules without giving up good taste. They have a clear vocation as “premium capsules” and try to bring new varieties and aromas that do not exist in the official Nespresso range.
They are fair trade coffee capsules, and that is always a plus for the consumer. They are not satisfied with simply being a “cheap alternative” to the official Nespresso capsules.
Gourmesso was born in the year 2.013, with a very clear objective, to allow us to enjoy the best coffee at an irresistible price, as irresistible is its flavours. How would you like to start the day with an intense coffee from Arabia, flavoured with citrus fruits? Or enjoy the moment after dinner with a decaffeinated coffee with cookie flavour?
So wide is the selection of Gourmesso capsules for Nespresso that you won’t know where to start. Fortunately, all Gourmesso coffee varieties include a number that identifies the level of intensity of the coffee, so you can choose those you like best.

Gourmesso Capsules: Prices
What’s the price of Gourmesso capsules? Are they really as cheap as they say?
As far as the price of Gourmesso capsules is concerned, we must point out that this type of capsules designed for Nespresso coffee makers are offered in packs of 10 units, except for those special packs where you will find a selection of Gourmesso capsules in various flavours, consisting of 100 or 120 capsules.
In the official Gourmesso capsules shop, you can find coffee capsules cases starting from £0.22 per capsule or what is the same, cases of 10 capsules at a total price of £2.15 each Gourmesso capsule contains 5 grams of finely ground coffee. Logically this price can vary according to the market.

How are the Gourmesso Capsules for Nespresso? Opinions
Now that you know the price of Gourmesso capsules, I’m sure you’re interested in knowing what Gourmesso coffee is like. What do those users who have tried it think?
For all those who want to enjoy an excellent coffee without spending a lot of money, the Gourmesso brand is an excellent option. But that’s not all, because the Gourmesso capsules brand, in addition to quality and good price, also offers us an exquisite selection of coffees of diverse flavours, from classic flavours to those that bet on innovation with aromas that will surprise you.
And if at some point, you don’t feel like drinking coffee but are looking for a hot drink, you can opt for the tea capsules of this great brand. Within the selection of Gourmesso tea capsules, you will find teas with classic flavours, such as green or black tea and other drinks with fruit flavours.
The Gourmesso capsules present their coffee in 21 different varieties, which we summarize below. In brackets, we indicate the intensity of each one.
- Ten varieties of espresso: Ristretto (10), Ethiopia (10), Brazil (3), India Pura Mezzo (6), India Forte (8), Messico (9), Tarrazu Forte (8), Nicaragua Mezzo (7), Bolivia Pura Mezzo (7), or Colombia Arabica Mezzo.
- Three varieties of lungo: Lungo Arabica Forte (9), Lungo Italico Forte (10) and Lungo Latino Mezzo (7)
- Six varieties of coffee with flavours, all of them of intensity 5: vanilla, chocolate, caramel, coconut, hazelnut and almond.
- One variety of decaffeinated coffee (intensity 3)
- One organic coffee (8).
All these varieties retain the same scale of intensities as the official Nespresso capsules (from 3 to 10, from lighter to more intense). As you can see, in some cases, they even improve the Nespresso range (especially in terms of the range of flavours).
Compatibility of Gourmesso Capsules
A concern of all users of Nespresso-compatible capsules is whether there is a risk of damage to the coffee machine (as Nespresso insatiably repeats). Well, logically, this is not so. In the worst case, what you can damage is the compatible capsule, which you’ll have to throw away and find a new one, but the coffee maker is totally unaware of this process.
But Gourmesso goes one step further and even manages to solve this problem and ensures the compatibility of all its capsules with any Nespresso coffee machine.
The Gourmesso capsules have even been tested with the latest model of Nespresso Inissia, which, as you know, incorporates a stricter security system than other older Nespresso coffee makers. The only thing you can notice is that the pressure you exert when poking the capsule should be slightly higher than with official Nespresso capsules because the plastic they are made of is a little more flexible (according to Gourmesso, this is an improvement over Nespresso capsules because they are easier to recycle).
