Stainless Steel Refillable Capsule for Nespresso
it requires try and error to figure out the best amount of coffee to use. It is good to use "fine" coffee in order to get more "cream".
Please try again with slightly less coffee and an espresso grind making sure first that there is a silicone ring around it. And do not put too much coffee in. Tamp twice max.
You can fill each capsule with about a scoop and a half of coffee, using the tamper to press it into the capsule. Do not overfill, you need to leave a little bit of space between the coffee and the lid. I then place one of the aluminum caps on the capsule and then tap it a few times to make sure it is not pressed in too tightly. So far, it produces nice espresso.
You can try to use the Illy or Lavazza coffee grinds.
Plastic Refillable Capsule for Nespresso
This capsule makes a good cup of espresso if you do these:
1.Use Good Grind
They are very picky about how the coffee is ground. It requires try and error to figure out the best amount of coffee to use.
You can use Lavazza grind coffee, fine used the scoop amount and tapped - 90 to 95 percent as good as the nespresso, tapped it down with the scoop, closed the lid, popped it in the machine, lovely coffee, had a good cream on top.
2. Tamp down well
When you tamp properly, you'll see that caramel colored cream coming out of your machine.
3. Clean the lid after every use. Otherwise you will get a tiny cup of weak coffee.
After you use them, soak them in a glass/container/bowl/whatever-and let them soak for at least 10-15 min. This ensures ease of cleaning them. Make sure you open the top first, then run water for about a minute. This loosens the used grounds before soaking.
Or you just used hot water, dish soap and a toothbrush for the top screen and it cleaned right up.
Plastic Refillable Capsule for Dolce Gusto
Please double check if our capsule can work for your coffee machine, we have stated it clearly which Dolce Gusto Machines compatible with the capsule.
Few things to be aware using it:
1) When using 1st time try to find the point where needle goes in to the capsule. DO NOT FORCE CLOSE
Than just mark the point (position) with white marker for future use.
2) Sometimes you might dispose the bottom mesh with the coffee - ALWAYS CHECK
3) If by mistake happens to make an extra hole (with the needle) on the cup just cover with scotch tape and you can still use the capsule.
4）Use Espresso grind for best results with cream.
You are careful not to over fill them and it took quite a few tries to find the right grind for your taste. You just don't want to use too fine a grind. You will get good strong coffee and a full 8 oz mug, and you use espresso grind and packed it down a little.But once you figured everything out, it works perfectly every time. Yes, it may be a bit of a hassle at first to use them but it will get easier and faster.
You should clean them after each use. Especially the extrusion on the cap. Coffee grounds accumulate in it.
Plastic Refillable Filter for Keurig
It Requires Try and Error to Figure Out the Best Amount of Coffee to Use. It is Good to Use "Fine" Coffee in Order to Get More "Cream".
And this filter is easy to use and clean. Just flip open,tap on the bottom of the pod and coffee falls out. Comes with a convenient scoop to fill pods. Two full scoops fills pod. About 10-11 grams,tap on pod to level out making sure the top of the grounds are below the top seal area the flip lid down. I usually fill them about 3/4 of the way. If they are full, to the top, the water goes through more slowly.
Make sure to line up the two holes or notches with the piercing part in your coffee maker or the reusable cup will not sit down properly in the chamber.
If you have a problem with the coffee being watered down, you need to do is hit “strong” when you brew it so the water runs through a little slower, then the problem should be solved.And you also have to almost fill a pod with grinds to brew one cup vs actual coffee machine where it is like a teaspoon per cup.
It's fantastic! You must, however learn how to use them properly. This includes the degree to which the coffee is ground, how much/tightly it is packed into the pod, etc. Once you have mastered this (only takes a couple trial and error), you will find that the coffee you make in the pods is better than the other one.
The quality of the coffee used affects the quality of the result. You should have lots of trial and error when learning to what consistency the coffee needs to be. Do not over grind the beans too fine as the coffee will come out diluted. Same goes for should you not grind them enough.
Pack them appropriately.Once you've filled your base, place the silver sticker in the middle and press down along the flat rim of the pod before folding the foil over the edge. This will keep unnecessary air out.
Any questions, let me know.
Our capsules can work for Dolce Gusto Machines.
As far as people having trouble with the cup and the needle. If you line it up properly you will have no issue.
The gusto takes some good pressure to close on any cup so I see it would be easy to punch a new hole in the refill cup thereby ruining it. If you can carefully line it up successfully once and carefully close it with gentle pressure and if you have too much resistance you may want to stop and look to see if the cup has a gouge mark on it as the needle is sharp.If not then proceed, test this a few times and when you do finally close it fully- don't just run the machine- check to make sure so you don't make a coffee mess in case you did punch an extra hole in it.
Any questions, let me know.
