I don't know if we are allowed to use brand names on here, so I'll try to avoid doing so.
I have a coffee pod machine which is designed to take a well-known brand of coffee. However, there is a firm which makes a perfectly good substitute, which I have been buying as it is £1 cheaper than the branded one. At the moment, there seems to be a campaign to put this firm out of business. The supermarkets have stopped selling their coffee and for a brief period, had dropped the price of the well-known one. Now, of course, the price has gone back up. I hope other customers will do the same as me and refuse to play ball with the supermarkets. It is possible to buy the substitute on-line at the same price as the supermarket and post-free, and this is what I shall be doing. I hope others do the same.
