Just to be clear, because your post wasn't - I'm looking cheap, genuine nespresso pods.

I just buy the Taylor ones from Amazon. If you buy 60 at a time they are reasonably cheap, taste fine and unlike some of the other 3rd party pods actually work well with the machine.

Tell your employer that Nespresso pods are environmentally unfriendly and they should invest in a proper coffee machine.

And that they should not expect you to supply your own coffee, the fvcking cheapskates. Where do you work, the public sector?

okay, can we rewind this. I appreciate the rof response to any question is to answer a slightly different question. It's why clients really appreciate the off-point advice they get constantly from lawyers...

All I wanted was info on where I might get a slightly better deal for genuine nespresso pods. that's it. Nothing else is required. If you don't know, please don't waste valuable finger energy typing.

My finger energy is not that valuable. Probably because I work somewhere I have to supply my own tea/coffee. What's your excuse?

a useful precedent for a response is:[I]

I buy genuine nespresso pods from [INSERT NAME OF RETAILER/WEBSITE] in pack of [INSERT NUMBER OF UNITS] at a unit cost of [INSERT UNIT COST].

my employer is cheap, but even they supply the pods (an dispose of them for recycling)!

tell your employer you didn't sign up to ryan air employment conditions.

I work from 3 offices. One has genuine nespresso flying saucers (free), one is my home (better coffee, self-financed) the other is a serviced office where there is a pod machine but no pods.

hah. No, I'm not actually cranky. I am attempting humour by

(a) pointing out the lawyer's normal reaction to a query isn't "sorry, don't know" but to explain why the client asked the wrong question before re-casting the question as something they do know about; and

(b) drafting a precedent.

I am willing to bet that any coffee forum has much stronger and more nastily-expressed views on nespresso pods...

50 genuine pods for £29. Isn't that about twice the price of the Nespresso shop?
