It turns out that Tesco did print my PMID on the label, so I don't know what went wrong there. I had to chase it up via email. That's -1 for Parcel Motel.

Not impressed with the coffee either (Douwe Egbert's medium)

I don't use the coffee duck, but lots of people rave about them.

3 other options:
Pods in Tesco (About €3.50 for 18)

I odered two of them and the 2 together mean an over-sized box so have to pick it up or pay an extra €10.50 to get delivered (on top of the €7 for oversized). pain. Parcel motel won't open it and deliver the 2 boxes separately...

The Blue Mountain Blend is my favorite at the moment.

Senseo Coffee Pod Sample Pack (54 Pods) is not a bad option to find out which you prefer.

Free delivery when you spend over €50

picked this up. had bought medium roast (not Egberts ones) in Tesco just to test. Very underwhelmed with what came out of the machine - tell me that a good coffee makes all the difference....?

I haven't tried the medium but I find their dark roast to be not particularly strong (but still quite tasty), so I'd imagine the medium is quite mild.
