My local Starbucks reserve store gave me a nitro brew in a cup with a straw instead of the sip cover.   I don't know if all stores changed to this or just the reserve does this but the nitro brew should not be drunk from a straw.  Somehow ruins the bubbles IMO.  Same way you wouldn't drink beer with a straw. 



It's a pretty cup but agreed

Maybe you should just ditch the lid & straw

Lol.. yes. I was walking and quickly and didn't want to spill. But yes, I hope not everyone is following suit. I much prefer their regular nitro brew lids.

Are there other pods besides coffee, e.g. cocoa, tea? Also, what's the best current deal on pods?

For tea & cocoa look on amazon, there's options there

nespresso pods are very expensive, for compatible coffee pods on amazon bestpresso is the highest rated & half the price with a hechsher from the OU.

I'm still debating what to buy

They claim any off brand is a waste:

DW says not nearly good as the real stuff.

I recently got a couple chances to taste from the keurig brand. It doesn't even come near the ballpark of Nespresso.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Yeah I'm not understanding this. The only reason I (and I thought everyone else) bought the Nesspresso machine is because their coffee was far superior than other brands. Why would I then go and buy an off brand to use in my Nespresso machine???

Not me.

I and many other people I know bought their nespresso machine because it's a great product.

As far as pods go there's better ones than nesspresso fyi

I don't like to say it this way, but you're objectively wrong.
You won't find any brand that has reviews of tasting anywhere close to Nespresso.
Live forever or die trying.

In the USA you might be right, but in Europe there's a huge variety of quality compatible pods
