More and more families are choosing to make infusions with their capsule coffee maker. Apart from coffee capsules, you can buy tea capsules, chamomile capsules, herbal tea capsules, in short, capsules of all types of infusions.
The reason? Basically, because the way capsule coffee machines work fits like a glove in the preparation of infusions: this type of coffee machine allows you to have hot water ready in a matter of seconds, just like a kettle.
Is the result of making infusions with the coffee maker the same as preparing them the traditional way? Not exactly. Coffee machines are designed primarily for making espresso, and this means that the hot water comes out at a specific pressure. But well, this is something that the consumer of infusions does not care much about (if it were the other way around, another rooster would crow).
In short, if you are one of those who take advantage of their capsule coffee maker to enjoy instant infusions, this is your page. You only need to buy infusion capsules that are compatible with the format of your coffee maker. Here we present the most popular ones:
Infusion Capsules For Nespresso
By far the most popular on the market are the infusion capsules compatible with Nespresso. Surely because of the enormous popularity of these machines in our country. You know that the official Nespresso capsules only offer coffee (espresso), so you have to look at other brands if you want to buy infusion capsules for Nespresso. On Amazon, we find all of these:
As you can see in the gallery, the variety is enormous. More than any other brand of the coffee maker. Apart from everything you can find in the Pompadour infusion capsules, which is no small thing, you can also buy Nespresso-compatible herbal tea capsules, teas of all flavours, mints, camomiles or lime.
As it is the format of coffee machines with the most users, it is also the one with the most manufacturers who bet on Nespresso infusions – good news for users!
Infusion Capsules Compatible With Nespresso Cuida Té
Of all the brands of infusion capsules for Nespresso coffee machines, we wanted to highlight these from Cuida Té (an excellent play on words) because of their variety. There we find a green tea, an infusion of berries, a Mediterranean green tea and some new camomile capsules, which for Nespresso are quite rare.
They are presented in boxes of 10 units at a price similar to the official ones (between 35 and 40 cents per cup).
Infusion Capsules For Dolce Gusto
Unlike Nespresso, Dolce Gusto-compatible infusion capsules are not so standard. We can find a couple of varieties – no more – in the official capsules. But then we will have to go to Origen & Sensations (one of the Dolce Gusto compatible brands with the largest market share) to find new flavours, such as fruit tea or Marrakesh tea.
Apart from these two options that are usually available in physical stores, if we want to buy Dolce Gusto infusion capsules at Amazon, the only thing left to do is to find little known manufacturers that occasionally launch some variety of infusion in this capsule format. MyRistretto is one of them, but you will only find them online.
Tassimo Infusion Capsules
The users of this brand of coffee machines have it more accessible. As there are no capsules compatible with Tassimo, the only varieties available if we want to buy capsules for Tassimo infusions are those found in the official catalogue. Here below, you have them.
As you can see, there are four varieties of tea from the Twinnings company: an Earl Grey blend, a green tea with mint, a forest fruit blend and a typical “English breakfast“. When it comes to buying tea capsules for Tassimo, these are, at the moment, the only alternatives on the market.
Delta Q Infusion Capsules
The Delta Q capsules are the only ones you can use in the Delta Qool coffee machine. Users of this brand who are infusion fans are in luck because although the number of alternatives is not very large, the variety is more significant than in other formats.
If you want to buy infusion capsules for Delta Q, you have these three options in the official catalogue: a rooibos tea, an infusion of chamomile, and an initial infusion of fresh ginger and mint.
Infusion Capsules Soria Natural
Soria Natural is perhaps the best brand of infusions, or at least the one with the most excellent variety of references in its catalogue. The fact is that Soria Natural’s infusions are counted in dozens.
Unfortunately, until recently, the only way to enjoy the best Soria Natural teas was with traditional bags. But, as it could not be otherwise, the firm has also jumped on the bandwagon of capsules and has put on the market a selection of capsules of Bio infusions compatible with Nespresso. These are the ones:
- Green tea.
All varieties are presented in cases of 7 capsules each.
Unfortunately, Dolce Gusto users cannot yet enjoy the infusions of Soria Natural in their machines, but everything will work out.
