Can't believe the difference in taste between these OEM capsules & 3rd party capsules. As many other reviewers have noted, the 3rd party capsules (and I've tried 5 different 3rd party brands now) are weak in taste & flavor. I have the DeLonghi Lattissima Pro machine & with an OEM Nespresso ristretto capsule, the latte & cappuccino are just magnificent. With the 3rd party capsules, they're both mediocre...at best.
PROS: The best flavors & taste. Wide choice of coffee types.
CONS: VERY expensive compared to other types/brands of capsules or pods.
