How to choose the right compatible coffee for you

As the proud owner and diehard fan of branded capsule coffee, you have probably only so far used the brand name capsules that go with your machine. You not may have become aware that there are compatible capsules available, which means you can broaden your taste a bit and source much more than the branded options. Compatible capsules by their very definition are designed to fit and work absolutely beautifully in your branded machine.

OK, having coffee choice is fantastic, but how do you narrow down your choices? Here is a list of things you should consider when trying to choose from all of the compatible capsule options out there:

Look for what you love. Whether you like your coffee light and fruity, or dark, strong and bitter, you will always want coffee that is rich and smooth, with a lovely crema and silky finish. You may have to try a few until you find the taste you are looking for.

There are a few factors to consider here. First of all is how good are the beans used in the first place, then how well are they blended and roasted, how freshly are they captured and stored, how smooth and rich and creamy do they come out once poured? Where are the beans sourced from and where are they roasted, how experienced are the handlers who roast them? Look for traditional recipes, tried and true blends and renowned coffee suppliers such as those found in Italy.

Maybe think of this as value for money. If you are looking for the cheapest option in coffee, it is not to be found in capsules, but in the jar of instant grounds at the supermarket. However you get what you pay for with that. With capsules its best to look for the best quality for the most reasonable price that you are willing to pay for that good coffee. Well priced compatible capsules for instance can be bought for around 40 cents a cup, and when you taste the coffee, you will find what great value for money that is.

This covers a few things. Can you browse and order online? Can your order be delivered quickly? Can you order in convenient amounts? Can you get a number of varieties and blends from one provider? Can you get other hot drink options to cover the whole family’s needs with one order?

Can your compatible capsules give you the variety you and your family need? You might be looking for a mix of strong, energising shots to get you started, delicate fruity blends in the afternoon, something new and surprising on lazy weekend mornings, or something sweet, like rich mocha to warm you at night. Look for a supplier that can meet all of your needs, and also keep you on your toes with new blends to try.

That certain something
This one is hard to put your finger on, but is basically that special something that a coffee has when it hits you inside perfectly and fills you up and gives you everything that you’ve been craving. It’s what makes you stand out in a crowd, what makes your friends ask in delight and surprise ‘What coffee is that?’ It’s individual and rare, and once you find it, there’s no going back to another brand.

It might take a little bit of research and investigation to find the compatible capsule that’s right for you, but at least it’s an enjoyable investigation process; it’s not like trying to find new health insurance or a dependable kind of bin liner!
