A little shot of coffee heaven, Ristretto is definitely not your average espresso. Bold and intense, this short espresso pod coffee has a delicious lingering taste, with a roasted, woody aroma.


A little smaller than an espresso, Ristretto is also known as ‘corto’, the Italian way of saying ‘short’. Compact, yet full-bodied with hints of black treacle, Ristretto is made by passing less water through the coffee, resulting in an intense shot of espresso that’s delicious morning, noon and night.One of our stronger coffee capsule varieties, Ristretto is a brilliant choice for those who love to savour an espresso, or coffee lovers who want to try something new and exciting.


Making a delicious Ristretto couldn’t be simpler using our stylish coffee machines. With the rich coffee blend in our Ristretto espresso pods, and the maximum 15-bar pump pressure in our machines, it’s easy to make a coffee shop quality drink at home. Complete with a silky layer of crema, these fabulous capsules make great tasting espressos from the comfort of your kitchen. We think your Ristretto is best served in an elegant espresso cup that shows off your masterpiece at its very best (why not give one of our espresso cups a try!).


And if you love the toasted taste of our Ristretto drinks, you’ll love our Ristretto Ardenza pods, our most intense pod coffee variety yet!

Very nice, but so often OUT OF STOCK!

A great tasting espresso, but the summary says it all. Same goes for the Barista version

Great for afternoons

This is my go to espresso for the afternoon as it's not as strong as some of the others.

Best espresso pod

The best micella of coffee I’ve tasted so far, if you are looking for an real italian espresso taste than this is the one!!! The real coffee lovers know what I mean

Rich and strong

I use this either as directed or to make a slightly larger cup of coffee. Either way, a nice strong rich coffee without any unpleasant bitterness or back taste. A firm favorite.

Espresso blando

No character. Too strong / bitter for my taste. Added more water, warm milk and brown sugar to make a longer (100 ml) drink that suits me. I'll stick with Espresso Macchiato (Cortado) and Americano black in future.

Review by David (Posted on 22/01/2016)

Just tried for the first time this beautiful espresso. My favourite in the range so far is Barista, but this one comes an extremely close second. Full on flavour, without a trace of bitterness, everything an espresso coffee should be. I seem to like the espresso range, far more than all the others, but why oh why are the major Supermarkets so iffy about stocking them? I can only find Barista in Waitrose (and only then sometimes!) and Ristretto only slightly more often. Perhaps if more people would ask for these two incredibly lovely coffees, they would then become more accessible. I would have no hesitation in buying Ristretto if Barista was unavailable, but why should I not have the choice? Who is it in these shops that decides which ones out of a range should be stocked and which should be omitted? They should stock them all. Clearly, the best sellers will always have more shelf space, but the others should still be there. Try these two lovely coffees and then voice your opinion next time shopping!

Tastes like freshly ground heaven

I love this little espresso, it is full on flavor rich and warm yet it still retains its smoothness, keeps me going all morning it really is a great taste and would definitely recommend
