Default Coffee Pod Things

Ladies and Gents,

I am in need of some help.

I recently bought myself one of these (I've now officially made it in life):



But as nice as Carrefour were at flogging me it and chucking in some of the free pod / capsule things, I've now run out. They appear to not bother selling them either....or I can't find where they are.

They come in boxes like this:



The pods themselves look like this:



Now you're all up to speed, I have two questions:

1. Does anybody have this machine and know where I can buy more pods?

2. If anyone sees some will they buy me several boxes of the plain Americano pods please? You will be rewarded with a tip of no more/less than 5dhs.

Thanks in advance

Take it back and get a Nespresso. Far better and can get the refills in MoE.

I know Virgin in MoE sell the Nescafe machines, not sure about refills.

Virgin? ****ing bizarre. I'll check.

Thanks pal.

Won't take it back, it's quality and wasn't too expensive.

Quality might be stratospheric but if you can't get the pods it's all a bit pointless..

I'm seeing your point.

I haven't trawled the city for them yet but was amazed that they weren't in the obvious location in Carrefour.

Actually, scrap that, I wasn't amazed, I did the classic Dubai sigh and shrug... before lambasting myself for being foolish enough to think they'd be in the coffee / tea aisle.

That link gives Carrefour as an outlet...so maybe asking on a forum is the better option?

You make a good point, but if I just googled it myself, what would you do all afternoon

You see that's where you went wrong. Now if you'd looked in the toilet cleaning accessories you'd probably have found them. Or next to the frozen chickens. Or CDs, basically any and everywhere but in the coffee/tea aisle.

Actually, thanks. Union Co-Op is a good shout that I hadn't considered.

You look all useless and mean, but you can be helpful sometimes

I know, I know. I did go round Waitrose with only them in mind. Ended up forgetting ham for my sarnies which was disappointing.

I even looked amongst the kettles and bins and crockery.

I definitely didn't ask for them either. Young Filipino bloke having an even younger fat white Brit asking him where he can find the capsules for his coffee machine.....I'd struggle to not feel like such a massive bell end.

Can I do that on my iPhone? If I just start a voice recording? Or will it only record my end of the call?

If I can do it, I will, then we'll worry about how to upload it on here.
