Product Details
    Two years ago, we had an idea to come up with a coffee product where consumers can extract great tasting espresso by the press of a button. We have tasted coffees from different regions of the world, cupped with various grind settings, tested thousands of capsules to replicate our café experience in your home. After years of trials and planning with coffee experts, we have finally landed a product with the highest quality coffee in capsule format.

    Coffee is great, capsule design not so much

    We normally use 49 Parallel coffee in our espresso machine but aren’t able to use the machine for about 3 months so we purchased a Nespresso machine to bridge the gap. The capsules from 49th make much better coffee than the propriety capsules from Nespresso but are very fussy to use as you have to really fiddle with them to get them to fit. But the end result is worth it.

    So Much Promise - A Big Let Down

    I was so excited to be able to have 49th Parallel for our Nespresso machine, however these use a really strange foil that doesn't seal properly and leaves a very weak coffee output. Very, very weak. Even on the smallest brew size, and especially compared to the normal strength of Nespresso capsules or even a normal espresso brew. Unfortunately, I don't forsee there being any resolution to this so long as they use the foil style seal.

    Poor Design

    The capsule uses foil which mates poorly with the machine and doesn’t push the water through properly. This results in really weak coffee. And this is not even compared to Nespresso coffees which are generally quite strong, this is compared to a normal super automatic americano with fixed dispensing of water. It’s a flawed design, unsure why they didn’t use a proper design, patents perhaps?

    So happy you have these!

    I was excited to find that 49th Parallel has nespresso pods! We recently bought a nespresso machine to use at our cabin and were searching for a good pod. These are great. Delicious coffee in a convenient format.

    Great product

    We have been ordering Common Ground, Nespresso compatible captures for the past several months and the ordering/delivery processes couldn't be any better. We enjoy the coffee and the recycle capsules. We would like to see more choices including decaffeinated capsules and darker, more robust tasting full caf capsules. Keep up the great work!
