How to use Bluecup capsules
Bluecup coffee pods work with Nespresso® machines manufactured after October 2010. To double check whether your machine is suitable for the Bluecup, ensure the sleeve that holds the capsule when you close the machine is made of black plastic, not aluminum. Please note - we do not stock capsules that are compatible with VertuoLine / Pro-series machines.
Your Bluecup can be used in your Nespresso® machine at least 200 times.
Use the Spoon Holder to easily fill your Bluecup with ground coffee, then place your filled capsule into the Cup Creator, put a Bluecup Lid on the pod, press and turn and voilà - your capsule is machine-ready!
Simply rinse the capsule with water and wipe dry with a soft cloth. All the components of the Bluecup have been tested for durability and food safety, and are also completely Dishwasher safe.
A grind size slightly coarser than regular espresso is best for optimum results.
Try tightly packing the Bluecup capsule with as much ground coffee as possible. If this doesn’t produce the desired result, use coffee ground to a finer setting.
Try filling the Bluecup with a little less coffee grounds, and tamping more softly. If this doesn’t produce the desired result, the coffee may need to be ground more coarsely.
A Bluecup can hold around 5.2 grams of ground coffee.
