What Pods Are Compatible With Nespresso Inissia
As I stated in the section above, Nespresso Inissia is an OriginalLine machine. That’s great news, because it expands the variations of coffee pods you can use. Here are the pods you can use for Nespresso Inissia, as well as other Nespresso OriginalLine machines like Citiz, Pixie, Lattissima, Creatista and more…
Nespresso OriginalLine Pods
Nespresso OriginalLine Capsules are widely available online or in-store. You can buy your capsules locally by visiting your nearest Nespresso boutique (visit Nespresso.com for locations), or you can buy them from Nespresso’s online store.
Generic (3rd Party) Nespresso OriginalLine Pods
Third party brands for OriginalLine machines, like illy, Lavazza or Starbucks, are easier to find as they are available in supermarkets as well as online stores.
Do Illy Pods Fit in Nespresso?
Illy does make Nespresso compatible capsules that will fit in any Nespresso OriginalLine machine like Inissia. You’ll find an Illy pod for Espresso, Lungo, Intenso Espresso and Decaf.
Illy Pods are not compatible with Nespresso Vertuo.
Do Starbucks Pods Work in Nespresso?
Starbucks makes Nespresso OriginalLine-compatible capsules that are officially licensed by Nespresso. You’ll be able to find most Starbucks blends in the form of a Nespresso capsule. The great news is, Starbucks pods are also available for Vertuo.
Can You Use Lavazza Pods in Nespresso?
Yes, Lavazza is one of the brands that makes Nespresso OriginalLine capsules. These capsules should fit your Inissia as well as any other Nespresso OriginalLine machine. Lavazza pods is not compatible with Vertuo.
Here’s an important note regarding Lavazza capsules. When buying Lavazza OriginalLine capsules, I highly recommend that you buy the Aluminum pods instead of the older plastic pods which produce horrible coffee in comparison. Lavazza aluminum pods make high-quality coffee and are recyclable.
What Is The Best Reusable Pod For Nespresso Inissia?
There are many reusable pods compatible with Nespresso Inissia as well as other Nespresso OriginalLine machines.
Although reusable pods are my least favorite way to enjoy coffee, because they take the convenience out of your Nespresso experience, it’s something many people like.
Reusable Nespresso pods are great if you want to save on your pod expenses, too. But do make sure you use the correct coffee to fill them. You’ll want to use FINE GRIND coffee made for ESPRESSO. The roast or blend does not matter, the grind size matters %100, if you use coarse or medium grounds, you’ll either get terrible coffee or the pods won’t work correctly.
Are All Nespresso Pods the Same Size?
As you might know, there are now two types of Nespresso pods:
Nespresso OriginalLine Pods and Nespresso Vertuo pods
Nespresso OriginalLine Pods are all the same size and should fit all Nespresso OriginalLine machines equally.
Can Dolce Gusto Pods Be Used in Nespresso
No, you can’t. While, at a glance, the shape of the Dolce Gusto pods are kind of similar to Nespresso’s, there are not the same at all. Nespresso’s capsules have a different design, are made of recyclable aluminum. The Dolce Gusto pods are a little bigger and are made of plastic.
Has Nespresso Inissia Been Discontinued?
Is Nespresso Discontinuing Original Line?
Since the start of rise of Nespresso Vertuo machines, the question of ‘Is Nespresso discontinuing Original Line‘ has been more relevant than ever.
Nespresso is not discontinuing OriginalLine. They will continue to produce Original Line capsules and keep their OriginalLine machines. They’ve just shifted their focus to Vertuo because it’s exclusive to them, which means, they make more money from their Vertuo systems than OriginalLine.
