Belmio Coffee Capsules Review

Ad - Gifted

Those who know me well will tell you that I am a BIG coffee lover. For me, it's not all about the caffeine hit (I survived on decaf during pregnancy) but the taste. It's my favourite drink in the world and whilst I'm no connoisseur, I like to think I know a good cup of coffee when I taste one and these days, in my opinion, some of the best coffees come from the pods designed for home coffee machines.

Belmio is a brand I've recently been introduced to, which designs a range of luxury Belgian coffee capsules, compatible with most Nespresso machines. The line includes eight distinctive coffees, made from only the best Arabica and Robusta beans. Each coffee is encapsulated in a colourful aluminium pod, with the intention of preserving the coffee to the highest standard and allowing machines to consistently produce great tasting, aromatic and intense flavours.

I was sent over the Classic Collection to try, which contains 50 coffee capsules - 10 Allegro, 10 Largo, 10 Intenso, 10 Risoluto and 10 Origio. But as we do not yet have a Nespresso machine in the house (Dad's getting one for Christmas) I asked my other half and his family to help me taste test the capsules instead!

After sampling the different Belmio capsules, we found that you could really tell the difference between each blend. Some were much darker with really intense roasting flavours, whereas others were creamy and had a hint of sweetness. You can see on the packaging how strong the coffee is rated and pick accordingly. Whether you're after a strong pick-me-up espresso or a longer, more leisurely drink, there's something to suit all.

I think it's fair to say coffee is quite a personal thing - how you like it may be completely different to how someone else in your family drinks it and that's why collections like this one from Belmio are well-worth a try. They give you the option to sample each blend and find the ones that you like the best. Although I haven't tried the coffee capsules from Nespresso and therefore can't really compare the two, what I can say is that Belmio certainly offer premium coffee capsules that I imagine most coffee-lovers will enjoy.

The Belmio Classic Collection can be purchased from the Belmio website for £16.50. If you know someone who's getting a Nespresso machine for Christmas, Belmio is a fantastic coffee brand to introduce them to and one they probably haven't heard of. We'll definitely be picking up a pack to use with the new Nespresso machine after Christmas!
