Great idea. Sadly they don’t work. They melt inside the machine and get stuck, exploding coffee everywhere inside the unit. We have had 3 success coffees from a whole box.

They don’t work, no water pumps through them. I contacted Lavassa and they stated they had not received any complaints so please contact them. They are sending me some free boxes to see if it’s batch related, but I don’t think it is ☹️
The new eco pods explode in the machine
Since changing to the eco caps I have had nothing but trouble with these pods. The water flow is very reduced causing a build up of pressure in the machine and then the pods explode in the machine leaving a bitter, grainy, undrinkable coffee. I will be returning them.
Really nice coffee, they don't always puncture pro
Really nice coffee, they don't always puncture properly, but there's an easy fix, just pierce the top with a sharp knife first. Small price to pay time wise for such an eco friendly idea.
These need to be recalled immediately. They simply don't work, no coffee comes out and you end up with a cup of hot water. I get the eco bit but come on guys I expected better.
Great idea, if they worked....
It's good to see more companies try to veer away from the plastic pods and the compostable ones are a great idea, but they just dont seem to work. As everyone else seems to have discovered, they dont seem to pierce the 'mesh' properly and so gives barely any coffee and ends up building up pressure in the machine. In summary: I wouldnt buy these, am going to look for a refund. I do recommend the L'or ones as at least they are aluminium and you can sneak them into the official nespresso recycling bags :-)
They don't work!
The water wouldn't filter through the pod, so just little drops. Thought it was that my machine needed descaling, so did that and the same thing happened. Tried a different non-Lavazza Eco pod and it was fine. Looks like it's the mesh type lid on these pods that just isn't functioning right. I'll be returning these.
Do not buy
Do not buy. These are not fit for purpose and potentially damage your machine - they do not pierce the pods properly which causes pressure to build up and only a half shot of coffee to come out.
Not a good buy
Don’t buy. Machine pierced pod but coffee not released. Pod full off water but no coffee is no good to me. Happened to most pods and wary of damage to machine so won’t buy again.
