I like a latte

Both flavours are OK when made black but I think the Rhodes could be boosted a little. I add a little milk to the glass when making latte and the taste is a little bland. I also heat my glass for 30 Seconds in the microwave to boost the temperature.
Packaging is excellent.


Great taste, not too strong

Sydney for the Lactophiliacs (Milky Maniacs')

Look I'm not much of a coffee with milk guy as I really think a great coffee can only be judged by tasting it black, but this has all the elements to make it a superior milky moment. It's strong, it's bitter ... exactly what you need to add an alkaline to and get the best pH balance to your taste buds. If you're not at the stage of 'once you go black you can't go back', then this is the pod for you ... Drink it in!

Venice is velvet

Wow talking about a super smooth roast.
This is not for the strong at heart, it's for those that enjoy Tea more than coffee.
It doesn't hit your tongue and say look here buddy it's time to wake up ... it's a sipper's coffee, a conversations coffee. You slowly enjoy this coffee and savour it as you go.

Venice is smooth like velvet and goes down just the same.


I have tried heaps of pods at AirBNB's, work, people places and they have all been disappointing. I recently tried some from another SA-owned company [PCR] of whom I love their normal beans, but they also had that god-awful pod taste.

So I tried PodLife and look I'm not gonna lie I know these guys and I should have just got these sooner, but I'm a sh!t friend (sori guys).
These pods are the best coffee pods ever (period), they are actually like a take-out coffee.

The intensity of Rhodes immediately made me feel good, what a great flavour and after taste!

Thank you guys wish I had tried these earlier ... I'll make up for it though through word of mouth :)

Best Pod coffee I’ve ever had

I love the new Sydney podlife coffee, it has to be my favourite one yet.
I have my coffee with oat milk and it is so smooth, creamy and delicious

Best pod coffee I’ve had!

I’ve tried a few different brands of pod coffee and felt they all tasted the same until I tried this one! It’s so hard to choose a fave but I am currently loving this one. It’s so smooth and fresh. I am hooked 😍

Love it Strong and Smooth

No greater way to start the day! Sydney is a strong coffee which is really enjoyable with almond milk. Cost effective and great for the environment, which is always a plus. Very satisfied customer.

My Favourite Pod

Venice is my Favourite Pod Life Pod - I have it everyday with my almond milk in the mornings and sometimes in the afternoon too :-)

Very Nice and Smooth

I really like this coffee - it's so nice and smooth! I use the Sydney pods when I feel like making a coffee that tastes a bit stronger than the other pods and it suits my regular way of drinking coffee too (I always have the coffees with almond milk and tastes so much better than buying coffee out).

Great coffee

I liked Sydney because it was strong enough with milk and wasn’t acidic for my stomach. Highly recommend😊


We buy these pods for our office team and they are amazing. We require coffee fixes throughout the day and we are hooked on PODLIFE. The quality is smooth and full-bodied. Thank you for delivering such a great and environment friendly product, keep it up. 😊💕

Venice Pods review

As advertised the coffee doesn't taste burnt at all, I have a Breville Creatista Pro machine and was finding all other pods had a burnt taste to them, not the Pod Life !

Nice coffee but...

The coffee quality is good overall. However, I noticed the coffee flow is slow and sometimes just dripping. It has caused my machine stop once.
