In recent times, single-dose capsules have become so popular that we can find capsules of anything now (including soup capsules for Dolce Gusto, yes, no kidding). And it was only a matter of time before you could buy milk capsules for Dolce Gusto and Nespresso, especially.
And what is the point of making a single-dose milk capsule alone if you can serve the milk directly from the milk bottle? Well, this question has several answers:
- To make a hot latte. Yes, you can add the milk later, but either you heat it before, or the coffee will be cold right away.
- Because there are systems in which there are no official single-dose milk capsules. For example, many people decide to buy single-milk capsules for Nespresso, because in this brand, all capsules are made of espresso coffee: there is no such thing as a latte or cappuccino by itself.
- To enjoy an instant drink in the form of a cocoa shake, chocolate or any condiment you want to add to the hot milk.
- To try strange combinations in your capsule coffee maker (mixing the single-dose milk capsule with other varieties of existing capsules).
Below you can see a summary of the best single milk capsules that can be found right now on the Internet:
And of course, the next question is where to buy milk capsules? In the supermarkets, you rarely find them, as they are not yet a top-rated product. And, of course, not all private labels of capsules market this variety.
Now we will take a closer look at some of the milk capsule varieties most sought after by consumers on the Internet:
Milk capsules for Nespresso
Are there milk capsules for Nespresso? Yes, there are. Not in the official catalogue, but among the full range of compatible capsules for Nespresso, we can find some varieties like this one of milk capsules Nespresso of Mocava:
Other Nespresso-compatible milk capsule options include CabuCoffee milk capsules, available on its website, which is sold in packs of 25, 100% compatible with any Nespresso coffee machine. In general, there are not as many varieties as for Dolce Gusto machines, but little by little, some are coming onto the market.
Milk capsules for Dolce Gusto
This famous brand has the most significant number of varieties currently on the market. These are all the Dolce Gusto compatible milk capsules that can be purchased right now on Amazon:
As you can see, there are several brands that market Dolce Gusto Nescafé milk capsules. It is almost always evaporated milk or powdered milk, similar to that used in mixed capsules (for example, the white capsules of the Cappuccino variety).
That usually varies in the price and quantity of Dolce Gusto capsule milk units that come in each package.
Tassimo Milk Capsules
Tassimo is the only one of the great brands of capsules that officially markets, within its corporate catalogue, single-dose milk capsules. However, you must be careful with the shipments, because many times they are imported.
According to the manufacturer, it is not just milk but rather a layer of cream designed to give you that extra creaminess you are looking for in your Tassimo drink preparations.
If you are going to buy capsule milk for Tassimo, you can see its current price below (another option is to buy them on their website). The packages are 16 units or T-Discs, like any other variety.
Milk Creamer Capsules
Milk creamer capsules are a different thing from the rest of what we are dealing with on this page. They are individual tubs or portions of creamy milk (not milk as such), which is served next to the coffee just so that each consumer can pour the amount they want into their cup.
If you look for them in Europe, they are prevalent: they are Coffee Creamer pods. To buy cream capsules on Amazon, you can do it in big packs, like these:
Evaporated Milk Capsules
Evaporated milk capsules are a similar concept to the previous one: they are not single-dose milk capsules to be used in your coffee machine, but you pour the milk you want already inside the cup of coffee.
The capsules are not very large, but you can still choose whether to serve them whole or to pour just a little bit.
You can, for example, buy evaporated milk capsules from Ideal, which is also from Nestlé (like many others, come on).
