Nespresso coffee pods

helou | Nov 19, 201205:58 AM     8

Does anyone know about the kashruth status of Nespresso pods (sort of like K-cups, but specific to their machines)? I got an answer on Wiki which stated that only those manufactured in Orbe and Avenches, Switzerland, are kosher. The Nespresso website states that they are all manufactured there, but I'm not about to use Wiki as a certifying agent. When I called Nespresso the person I spoke to wasn't able to help me. I'll try calling again and maybe I'll get someone who's got more on the ball.

For myself, I don't think coffee needs a hechsher, although I believe some flavored ones may be dairy, which I'd need to know if I'm serving coffee after a meat meal.
More important, however, I would like some information about this for my guests. I know it's popular in Israel and I've had the coffee there in homes of frum people.

Has anyone looked into this?
