What can I do when I run out of aluminium lids?

You can support us and order new lids on our website or make new lids from kitchen aluminium foil.


Which coffee should I use?

You can choose your favorite ground coffee, grind your favorite coffee beans yourself or ask your local cafe or roaster to grind the beans for you.

Grinder: We recommend using a burr grinder for the best results.

Grind size: a medium-fine grind that slightly coarser than regular espresso.

My coffee is too watery

If the grind size is too coarse or you ran too much water through the capsule, you may experience watery coffee. 

We suggest: 

  • Applying more pressure when tamping 
  • or The coffee may need to be ground more finely
  • or Add more finely ground coffee to the capsule
The water don't go through

If the grind size is too fine or there is too little water running through the capsule, the water might not be able to go through.

We suggest:

  • Apply less pressure when tamping
  • or The coffee may need to be ground more coarsely
  • or Put less ground coffee in the capsule
