#2 Greenwich Village By HiLine – Runner-Up!
This coffee pod, Greenwich Village by HiLine will provide you with an amazing cup of coffee that you will absolutely enjoy. It is a dark roast coffee from the Latin American country that is best known for coffee – Brazil. Notes of vanilla, orange and fudge come through, making it very enjoyable and very tasty.
The coffee pods by HiLine all contain coffee from Africa and South America, the best known, places to find great coffee and where coffee is mostly naturally processed. What I find very interesting about this coffee company is they have no physical stores – all their business is conducted online, which means they can keep the price down and pass the saving on to you.
The caffeine content by HiLine is slightly less than what you would expect, with an average of 60 to 70 milligrams of caffeine per pod compared to the average 70 to 80 milligrams for a shot of espresso.
#3 Costa Rica By Café Joe USA
This coffee pod, Costa Rica by Café Joe USA is a top coffee from Central America with subtle but vibrant notes of fruitiness. It is an intense coffee with a balanced sweetness that is well-rounded.
Despite their name, which is ever so slightly misleading, Café Joe USA is not at all based in the United States Of America, they are based in Israel. They may appear to be a new coffee company for American consumers, the fact is they have been one of the leading coffee companies in Israel for nearly 30 years.
#4 Elevate By Jones Brothers Coffee.
Elevate by Jones Brothers coffee does not quite fit into the category of flavored Nespresso Pods as it is not a flavored coffee as such, it is a great tasting medium roast coffee with a light, soft and lemon zest and sweetness.
Like Café Joe USA, Jones Brothers Coffee are not based in America. They are a Dutch coffee company that is best known for their coffee shops and café in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam.
#5 Biscottino By Gourmesso
This coffee pod is a blend of dark roasted Asian and South American coffee beans with cookie flavor that has buttery biscuit notes and hints. Very nice, and certainly worth trying.
#6 Belgian Chocolate By Lavica – Best Chocolate Flavored Nespresso Pod!
This coffee has a worthy place, and rightful place on the list of the best flavored Nespresso pods. Coffee and chocolate go hand in hand like, well, pop corn and a good movie, and there are very few chocolates are better than Belgian chocolate.
This pod is a medium roasted blend of Arabica and Robusta beans. It’s smooth, lovely and with an amazing chocolate flavor.
#7 Caramel By Caffesso – Best Caramel Flavored Nespresso Pod.
If you love exotic coffee, caffesso will hit the spot for you the majority of their coffees come from Central America and South America which is two great places for top class coffee.
Their caramel coffee is a medium-roasted blend of Asian and South American coffee beans, with smooth tones and very subtle notes of caramel.
#8 Leggero Lungo By Lavazza – Best Italian Coffee.
There are few Italian coffees that are better known than Lavazza. The Nespresso coffee pods that they produce are of the highest quality and the standard that you would expect from this company.
The Lavazza Leggero Lungo is fruity, floral and rather light tasting for a medium roast – this is the most enjoyable of their pods.
#9 Napoli By Il Caffe Italiano – Best Robusta Coffee Pod
While not quite 100% Robusta the Napoli is 95% Robusta and has a chocolate and hazelnut flavor. The coffee is intense and has a serious caffeine kick.
Il caffe Italiano has been making and roasting coffee since 1870 and are not getting with the trend and making pods and capsules.
#10 Vanilla By Caffesso – Best Vanilla.
The vanilla flavored Nespresso pods by Caffesso is, in my opinion, the very best tasting vanilla Nespresso flavored coffee pod that you will find. It combines two great tasting medium roasted coffees from India and South America.
Other great vanilla pods that are worth trying are Greenwich village by HiLine – which made our spot as the runner-up. I am not listing this one as the best Vanilla flavored Nespresso pod as it has hints of both orange and fudge and is not uniquely vanilla.
The Best Decaffeinated Flavored Nespresso Pods
#1 Central Park By HiLine – Best Decaffeinated Coffee
The Central Park coffee pod by HiLine dispels the myth that decaffeinated coffee does not taste as great as regular caffeinated coffee. Expect a nutty chocolate taste from this 100% Brazilian coffee.
#2 Decaf Vaniglia By Gourmesso -Runner Up, Next Best Decaffeinated Coffee Pod.
This decaffeinated coffee, is on par with the best vanilla tasting coffee listed as #10 above, with the exception that this one contains almost no caffeine.
As a note on caffeine and decaffeinated coffee. The term decaffeinated means the beans have had their caffeine removed but not all. Trace amounts in the range of 2 to 4 mg per cup remain on average.
#3 Decaf By Café Joe USA.
This tasty decaffeinated coffee is lightly acidic, fruity and has a rather curious honey aftertaste. The flavor profile is a complete replication of their “Joe” coffee pod except it is decaffeinated.
#4 Decaf Cicocolate By Gourmesso – Best Organic Decaffeinated Coffee Pod.
This is a great tasting organic decaffeinated organic Peruvian coffee that is blended with great chocolate flavors. Given that chocolate itself contains caffeine and the process of removing caffeine often reduces the flavor of coffee, it is a credit to this coffee and all the ones that are listed in this decaffeinated coffee section that they remain so tasty.

No, there is no sugar added to flavored Nespresso pods, to be super clear on this point I’ll re-emphasise it – a flavoured Nespresso pod does not have any added sugar. Also, regular unflavoured Nespresso pods do not contain any added sugar. This is true for all pods regardless of the manufacturer be it Nespresso, Gourmesso, BestPresso, Caffe Joe, Starbucks, Peet’s or whoever! The flavor is achieved by adding powder to the coffee grounds.
