Would also like to know how much he charges anyone know?
OK, I got in touch with him. His name is Gewirtzman, and his cell phone number is [ETA: Redacted. Please PM for his number]. Charges $20, takes him around 10 min while you wait in his house in Coventry, usually does bein hasedorim or nights, call to find a good time.

I will report my experience after I use him.

It was very intentional that I didn't post his number online in public

I understand, but I asked him and he said “Please!”

Still, I’ll modify the comment and make it available via PM to placate you :)

I was told from one the Vaadim in South Florida its not recommended at this time.
kinda looks like a magnifier glass?
Whats the product, maybe it doesn't need a hecsher at all?

Any update on this? Is the cof inside a magnifying glass reliable?

It’s bread from Walmart

Thanks
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Posted this in the Nespresso master thread, but not much luck, so reposting here:

http://pressogno.swiss - Nespresso Pods. On amazon they say that they have Kosher Certification. I didn't see any symbol on the product, but I asked and they said they're certified by the Chief Rabbi of Bologna Italy - anyone know if these pods are okay? Anyone know about who that Rabbi is and his Hashgacha?

Did you get a name of a Rabbi?

As I pointed out in the Nespresso thread, the question is about the packaging process. If that is potentially problematic (with flavor cross contamination) then you might need Hashgocho (and the Hashgocho on the original Nespresso pods isn't really reliable). If that process doesn't need Hashgocho, so as long as it's unflavored coffee, there's no issue.

So your homework is to:
1.  Get a name for the said Rabbi.
2.  Find out about the process of having the pods filled and sealed.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

ExGingi - the didn't come back to me with a name. google search turns up little and nothing useful. I am just being lazy - hoping that someone has more actionable info.

FWIW - these are all unflavored coffee, and I don't believe that Pressogno sells flavored capsules

So what you need to find out is if the facility that packages the capsules does only unflavored coffee. If that is the case, I think you should be safe, but as usual AYLOR.
