We’ve partnered up with Specialty Coffee Collective to help create the ultimate coffee pod for your Nespresso® compatible machine.
What type of coffee is in each pod?
Great question! The coffees in these pods are premium grade specialty coffees, which have been roasted specifically for pod extraction. Each pod is filled with freshly ground coffee and instantly sealed, creating a time capsule for the coffee's flavour to ensure a real-time, delicious espresso from your machine.

How should I prepare my coffee?
To achieve the best possible extraction from these pods, we recommend that you purge your machine and heat your cup before making your coffee. This is easily done by pressing the normal shot button on your machine without a pod in place, this process will heat the machine and cup while removing any leftovers from previous extractions.
Will they fit my machine?
The Specialty Coffee Collective pods have been developed to fit and extract beautifully in Nespresso® compatible machines. However, as new machines are being released fairly frequently, Specialty Coffee Collective can’t be 100% sure that these pods will fit your machine due to the different fitment and/or extraction perimeters some new machines have.
If you are having any issues with the pods fitting your machine, please ensure the machine is clean and that there’s not another pod stuck in the machine. Please do not force the machine lever if the pod doesn’t seem to fit well.
If you have any concerns or questions, please contact us for further advice.
For older machines, over time the prongs within that are used to extract the pods can dull which can result in poor extraction and fitment.
Please note that we have experienced some customer feedback related to
incompatibility with the Breville Nespresso® Creatista machine and we are advising customers not to purchase these pods for that machine.
If you are unsure, please contact our friendly customer support team who’ll be more than happy to help!
