    The coffee pods don’t seal properly and it seems to be because the o-rings are not sufficiently sized to seal against the plate when used. The replacement o-rings also don’t seal well and you need to constantly slide them up before reusing. It means the water often goes down the side and not through the pod. You need larger profile o-rings. Your replacement o-rings are very expensive.

    I too have had the same issue as Jenny’s post with coffee only filling the catcher and not the cup. I’ve tried with and without paper filter for the same result. I am disappointed this ain’t as easy as it should be. Do I need to use a course grind or ultra fine to resolve this?

    Not a problem at all, Jenny! We have some great tips that should assist with this!
    One of our team members will be in touch with you today :)
