How to use My-Cap accessories
My-Cap accessories are compatible with capsules for Nespresso® VertuoLine machines, including Vertuo and VertuoPlus models.
If cared for correctly, your My-Cap silicone components should last for at least 100 uses.
We recommend using a burr grinder for the best results, as blade grinders create an inconsistent grind, as well as too much dust.
We recommend coffee ground to espresso for optimum results. Or you can check out our delicious Bespoke Blend, developed specifically for use with capsule machines!
1. Carefully remove the pierced foil covering from capsule.
2. Wash the empty capsule base in warm water with a little dishwashing liquid, rinse and dry.
3. You're done, your capsule is now ready for reuse!
All My-Cap components are made from food-safe materials, and are BPA and BPS free.
VertuoLine capsule bases vary in size. The barcodes on each capsule dictate the volume of water flow, temperature, infusion time and speed of capsule rotation. The type of brew you make is determined by the capsule base you reuse. For optimal results, we recommend using the Short Espresso base. If using a larger size, run a 40mL shot, then press stop. This provides the ideal amount of water to extract the best elements of the coffee.
The Paper Filters are biodegradable and compostable. These are optional, and can be helpful if you are finding coffee grinds in your cup, or to brew a richer coffee and crema. We suggest running a shot with the Filter, and a shot without the Filter to see what works better with your machine! Simply place the Filter on top of your coffee, before closing with the My-Cap Silicone Cap.
Before you brew anything in your Nespresso® machine, we recommend performing a thorough descale.
Place an empty Vertuo capsule in the Capsule Holder and fill with coffee, leaving a very slight space for the Silicone Cap, and tamp firmly. Give the edges of the capsule a quick brush off to remove loose grinds.
Place the Paper Filter on top, followed by the Silicone Cap. Ensure the text side is facing up, and the Cap is pressed evenly into the capsule.
Place the capsule into the machine and close the handle. (Note: If there appears to be resistance when closing the unit, reopen it and try again.)
Brew and enjoy!
Always have a fresh coffee pod ready to go by filling multiple capsules in advance. Simply fill as usual, top with the Silicone Cap, place the Silicone Lid over the top and store in a dark, dry place.
