Coffee's not just for Christmas
04 Jan 2017


Research from The Grocer* shows that nearly one-third (30%) of Brits now own a coffee machine and even more coffee lovers will have received one for Christmas.
 
But, what happens after Christmas, once the festive novelty has worn off and you have to fund the coffee pods yourself?  
 
Fear not, discount supermarket Aldi has launched its own-brand coffee pods, so whether you’re into Espresso, Lungo or Ristretto, Aldi’s Alcafe Coffee Pods are all priced at just £1.79 for 10 servings and produce a high quality coffee to kick-start your day.
 
Available in store and online (aldi.co.uk) Aldi’s Alcafe pods are compatible with Nespresso© machines and Aldi’s own brand Ambiano Coffee Capsule Machine, currently available online at aldi.co.uk for just £49.99.
 
What’s more, Aldi’s Alcafe pods are 42% cheaper than the market leader, Nespresso pods**, and 28% cheaper than Sainsbury’s and Waitrose own-brand pods, a saving that is worth waking up for!
