Pro Tip: You can find a good selection of Nespresso capsules on Amazon.com. Since free shipping is usually included, it’s not a bad deal if you need Nespresso pods right away.
So, you have a shiny Nespresso machine sitting on the counter and need new capsules? I don’t own a Nespresso maker myself, but used one for quite some time at my office (I hate K-cups). Although meant for home use, Nespresso is perfect for the office because you don’t need to worry about who made the last pot of coffee. I use my French press occasionally but don’t always have time to clean it.
Buy Nespresso Capsules in Stores
What retail stores sell nespresso capsules? The easiest option in my city was to visit the local Nespresso store in Berlin (or boutique, as they call it). There, I could buy as much or as little as I wanted and try a shot before buying. Boxes of 10 Nespresso capsules start at just 3.50 EUR. Sadly, they’re nearly twice the price in the United States. The issue of where to buy Nespresso capsules becomes more complicated if there’s no official outlet in your area.
A few high-end stores also have Nespresso capsules for sale. Other than that, good luck finding the pods at any retail location. Even stores such as William-Sonoma that sell Nespresso machines don’t sell the capsules. A quick trip to the grocery store is also out of the question.
Order Nespresso Capsules Online
Unless you live in a big city, you’ll have to buy Nespresso capsules online. The price comes out to around $0.70 per capsule from the official online store– sign up and register your machine to get access. You’ll have the chance to buy an introductory “Welcome Pack” containing a wide range of capsules at a discount price.
You can also order Nespresso pods on Amazon.com and eBay, though they’re often more expensive on these sites than from the official store.
