You can explore any of the Pods further by clicking on the name of the Pod you so desire. Enjoy :) 


10. Tre Venezie Arabica

A classic flavour of espresso, this Pod harmonises the stoic taste of dark chocolate alongside aromatic citrus fruits. When it comes to intensity, this is one of the gentler pods, but that does not mean it is not a superb flavour. This chivalric espresso can liven up any Americano, cappuccino, flat white or latte.


9. Dolce Gusto Cappuccino Ice

This superb flavoured Dolce Gusto pod is, as it’s name suggests, made for iced pick-me-ups! From iced Cappuccino to iced latte, the choice is yours. With this sweet and creamy summer treat you are all set for the hottest of days. When it comes to Dolce Gusto compatible  pods, this one is a star among any good variety pack!


8. Tre Venezia Ginseng

One of my personal favourites. I really love the taste of ginseng and the synergy it creates with coffee. For those who wish for something a little herbier but not missing out on a great flavoured coffee pod, this one is truly a hero. This magnificent pod is what I would consider a strong coffee pod due to its unique taste as well as the lift it can give. The ginseng also synergises really well when being used as a base for either hot caramel lattes or iced caramel lattes.


7. Dolce Gusto Grande Intenso Dark Roast

Now on to some more strong Dolce Gusto coffee pods. This pod is definitely on the list for it’s heavy lifting abilities when it comes to the caffeine department. Deliciously bold on its own, this pod can be used to make an iron-hearted flat white, or a commanding Americano.


6. Café Royal Brasil

When it comes to strong dolce gusto coffee pods, a great addition to your rotation is this beauty from Café Royal. The intensity is well balanced with its savoury toasted nut hints and chocolaty notes. The espresso from this pod can be enjoyed as is, or added to a vivacious cappuccino.




5. Barista Italiano Delicate Arabica

A more 'delicate' touch in the Dolce Gusto compatible coffee pods world is this classic delight. This traditional Delicate Arabica is a strong but smooth Dolce Gusto pod and is superb in an Americano, hot or iced. It is fragrant and makes a fine addition to any coffee pod repertoire!


4. Starbucks Caramel Macchiato

One should not be too surprised to find the American Coffee giant on our list of the best of 2019! Because, well, they make some good coffee! This pod is superb and makes for one mean macchiato. The cream of this espresso pod is delicious and akin to a dessert. And the caramel flavour cannot be passed up!


3. Dolce Gusto Espresso Intenso

This pod is a real titan among the best. But this strength does not deny taste. A nutty aroma, and spicy hints of fruit make this espresso pod truly versatile and delicious. The espresso’s cream is a treat in and of itself, and I highly recommend it as a base to a cappuccino, flat white, and for an exotic addition to an iced latte.


2. Café Royal Espresso Forte

We are nearing the top of our list of the best Dolce Gusto compatible coffee pods of 2019! And once again we have another great strong pod for you. This heavy-hitter can be the hero of any variety pack! From the fruity aromas to the dark chocolate notes, this espresso pod is a superb example from Café Royal. It is a full bodied pod that will wake you up and get you ready to fly.


1. Barista Italiano Creamy Espresso

And the moment you have all been waiting for! Our best Dolce Gusto compatible coffee pod of 2019! This pod is special. And for what reasons? First, it is a stronger pod in terms of its intensity, but as any good coffee pod, the flavour of the noble Arabica bean is not squelched by its power. It balances bolder tastes resulting from a robust espresso, with gentle and pleasant notes of comforting toasted bread and cocoa. What separates a good pod from a truly great pod is, it can be enjoyed solo or prepared as a coffee drink. This pod, with its gourmand-pleasing flavours and powerful intensity, is peerless in a caramel latte, macchiato, cappuccino, Americano, flat white, lungo or even a doppio. In short. It rocks!
