We understand that it may be a little intimidating to switch over from the plastic, single use pods. That's why we have put together a little guide to explain how simple they are to use.
How to use
Careful when removing the pod, it can be hot
How to clean
Cleaning is the easy part, all of our pods reusable coffee pods are provided with a little cleaning brush to use. Can be washed just like any other utensil either by hand or in the dishwasher.
Coffee too watery?
Your first couple of coffees may not be the best unless you have done this before, but with a little practice you will barely notice the difference to your disposable pods. Not to worry, it will become part of your muscle memory before you know it.
These pods work best with fine and medium coffee. Try to avoid the coarse and extra fine brands, we suggest referring to the guide below on which types of coffee to use for optimal taste
If you are still having the issue, this means that the water is running straight through the pod, so you will need to pack the coffee into the pod a little firmer.
Water trickling out?
This is the exact opposite problem with the above and you have packed the coffee too much. In this case the water is unable to pass through the pod sufficiently. Just give it a little less pressure next time.
For the optimal coffee
It is advised to frequently clean out your machine with the machines recommended cleaner, this prevents residue build up and provides the optimal conditions for the perfect coffee. Additionally, letting a water cycle run through once in a while also helps, your machine will thank you for it.
