Nespresso should think of a recycling plan for these pods so that eco-conscious consumers would give their thumbs to this great invention Exclusivity. Nespresso pods are only available online or in Nespresso stores Pods usually contain a blend of Arabica (usually 95%) and Robusta; some purists will gripe about this More expensive at (around) $5.50 a sleeve, which contains 10 pods The quality and durability of Aeroccino can be improved Aeroccino oftentimes just warms the milk; the temperature is not hot enough for some Nespresso C100 Review Summary: Overall, the tandem of the Nespresso c100 and the Aeroccino is the best marriage of convenience and quality.
