Pod n Save capsules are reusable, ecological and are compatible with Dolce Gusto®. Don't think twice about purchasing one of our pods! Save money and at the same time help save the planet from the waste of single use coffee pods.
We bring you a unique product that allows you to use your favourite coffee in your Dolce Gusto machine. Our product is tried and tested and has a 10+ year lifetime which works out to be less than $0.48/per time you use it v.s. your standard off the shelf options of $0.625 per use.
The kit includes a scoop and brush to help you during the filling of your pod and it also comes with a tamper specifically designed for use with our pods to allow you to get the perfect coffee consistency every time you use our pod.
Our most common pain point with our pods is that people find the strength doesn't match what they are used to with their disposable pods. This is because strong disposable pods use a stronger Robusta coffee bean to create a stronger blend than if you simply use Arabica coffee beans. To find out more about this check out our blog here.
The other issue people experience is the consistency of the flow. This comes down to the grind of the coffee. For some machines espresso grind from the supermarket will work. For most, especially smaller Nespresso machines, a coarser grind is required. We recommend a grind at about 70 to 75% of espresso grind if espresso grind is 100%. This may take some trial and error with your home grinder or with your local roaster/store where you buy and get your beans ground.
To aid our customers we set out to create a coffee blend that enables you to have a strong coffee with a great flavour too. This process took a bunch of trialing before we settled on our current blend that we are happy to drink day in day out. We sell it either as beans or pre-ground to our recommended coarseness. Check it out HERE.
Even with shipping it is cheaper per use than disposable pods and we package it in compostable bags so it is better for the environment than the average off the shelf coffee you will find in the supermarket.
We stock our coffee capsule kits right here in Tauranga, New Zealand and so we are able to commit to shipping you your coffee capsule kit within 3-4 working days from the day that you make your order.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are single use coffee capsules a problem?
In 2019, more than 20 billion single-use capsules were thrown away which is more than 130 million killograms of waste EVERY SINGLE YEAR. If you choose our pods you are taking a step towards stopping this ecological disaster that is only growing the by year
How long does each pod last?
Our pods are designed to last over 10 years.
What if the pod doesn't work?
We are so confident in our product that we offer a 30 day money back guarantee.
My machine is designed to pierce the capsule, how does the Pod n Save capsule not get damaged?
Our pod is designed with a lid with hole that lines up with where the lid would usually be pierced. When using our pods make sure to line up the lid correctly.
How long should I wait between each use?
The capsule will be hot after each use so we recommend waiting 1-2 minutes before picking it up to wash and re-use it. If you are planning on making multiple coffees in a row then choose one of our discounted multi-pod packs so that you can make plenty of coffee for your friends and family.

These pods work... but they can be difficult to align. We have practiced having experienced no flow to escaping flow of the pressurized water.
I really want the pods to work and I am sure once we are used to positioning them they will be good.
One thing is sure, the coffee we purchased is excellent
Reusable Stainless Steel Dolce Gusto Pod Kit
They work well, got to get used to filling them, tamping the coffee down and making sure they are inserted properly into the coffee machine. I did get used to the convenience of popping a 'normal' one in, but of course the non recyclable aspect of them is a pain. So all good with the new ones.
It works very well on my Infinnessima machine, and happy with it. Not perfect as sometimes the lid comes off but I still get a good cuppa, but that's probably my own fault. Happy that I no longer have to put endless pods in landfill!
Not that easy to use with decaffeinated grounds. Lids don't attach properly which in turn means plenty of mess. Will look for other Lids maybe stainless steel.
