Hard to find the Nespresso pods (capsules) in local stores, but easily available online
Capsules are expensive
Summary for the Nespresso C100 Espresso Machine: Overall the vast majority of users loved the lattes, cappuccinos, and espressos that it made. The cost and availability of the coffee pods were an issue though. But then pods are always more expensive than whole beans or ground coffees. The pods can be purchased online or at Nespresso store fronts. Some stated that the coffee was weak, but the vast majority thought it was good coffee. In conclusion this is a very good machine for the price and users had very few complaints. Customer service replaced broken frothers at no cost and replaced them quickly.
