If you experience any issues at all, we recommend to stop using the pods and reach out to us,
Please descale your machine at least once a month.
Our capsules are made from biodegradable material, they may expand when they heat up.
This won't damage your machine but may cause the capsule to get stuck in the chamber.
Gently push it out with your finger or use a fork until it falls out.
You can also just run some more water through by pushing the button which should create enough pressure to release the capsule.
This is a small price to pay to save the environment.

Composting takes time and geat so it is possible to dispose of our pods in your home compost however the time it will take the pods to breakdown will vary depending on the conditions of your compost.
In commercial composting, our pods will breakdown in around 90 days.
FOGO - We recommend also checking with your local council to see if they will accept the pods along with food scraps in your green waste bin.
Our capsules & specialty coffee deliver a classic espresso shot.
It is advisable to extract a 25ml shot of coffee.
For milk coffees we recommend the following :
Piccolo latte: start with one capsule at 25 ml coffee and add 120 ml of milk.
Latte: use 2 capsules for 50 ml coffee then add 210 ml of milk.
For larger coffees and more milk, you may need to use 3 capsules.
There are 2 options, you can program your Lungo button on your machine to extract additional water up to 120 ml. This will change the intensity and the taste profile of the capsule.
We recommend the coffee shop method of running a normal shot of coffee and topping up with hot water. For stringer long blacks use 2 capsules which will yield 50 ml coffee, poured on top of 180 ml of hot water.
Yes, that is completely normal. Our pods do extract slower than Nespresso®* pods. We aim to create authentic espresso characteristics. Extraction time can be up to 20 seconds depending on variant & extraction volume.
Our coffee is very finely ground. Occasionally a few of the very finest particles of coffee may get past the filter plate and extract along with the coffee into the cup.
Press and hold the espresso button.
Keep doing this until you’re happy with the amount of coffee in your cup.
All our specialty coffees are free of defects and have a distinctive character in the cup, with a score of 80 or above when graded according to SCAA Standards.
By lightly roasting the coffee we maintain the characteristics of the bean as defined by the varietal, terroir, and climate.
We slowly develop the bean and bring it to a gentle drop just after “first crack”.
This allows us to maximize the natural flavors of these high-quality beans.
