Nespresso, one of the world’s most popular capsule coffee systems, recently made its way to Thailand after years of being unavailable.
In this post, I want to give a quick rundown of the availability of Nespresso in Thailand, as well as the best shopping options for Nespresso machines and capsules.
Nespresso machines in Thailand
There are two ways to buy Nespresso machines in Thailand. Nespresso Thailand’s official website lists a variety of machines available to order online, although prices are somewhat inflated compared to what you’d pay in the United States.
For example, the Nespresso Pixie, which barely costs $100 in the USA, is priced at the equivalent of almost $300 in Thailand. Other machines are similarly expensive when purchased from the official Nespresso website.
At the moment, the cheapest Nespresso machine available in Thailand is the Inissia, which costs 6,500 baht.
Another way to buy Nespresso machines in Thailand is by using Lazada, which is Southeast Asia’s local Amazon/eBay copycat. There are several Nespresso compatible machines available from 2,000 baht, which is a fraction of the price you’d pay for the authentic model from the official Nespresso website.
Finally, Nespresso has a boutique in Siam Paragon that sells both the machines and capsules, although the prices are similar to what you’d pay on the official website.
Nespresso capsules in Thailand
Nespresso capsules are available from the official Nespresso website for 22 baht each, which is relatively similar to international pricing. This guide to the best Nespresso capsules is handy if you’re searching for information on which flavor to try first.
You can also buy Nespresso capsules from the Nespresso boutique in Siam Paragon for the same price as the official website.
At the moment, we haven’t seen Nespresso capsules for sale in any supermarkets. The larger Nescafe Dulce Gusto capsules are widely available, as are Dulce Gusto machines (almost always at far lower prices than their Nespresso counterparts).
