Will WayCap capsules damage my machine?

WayCap capsules are designed to fit perfectly, and will not harm the machine.

Is WayCap easy to use?

The manual Dispenser and Press have been perfected to allow for a quick refill of the pod without any waste. We estimate that you'll be able to fill your capsules in about the same amount of time that it takes for your machine to warm up.

What kind of coffee can I use when brewing with WayCap?

When purchasing from a local coffee shop or roaster, ask for a grind between moka pot and espresso for optimum results. When buying pre-ground coffee, try to find coffee ground for moka pot, which is slightly coarser than coffee ground for espresso. When using this grind, the best result is obtained by applying considerable pressure when tamping. If using an espresso grind that is too fine, we suggest beginning with a small amount of pressure when tamping.

Can I get a little more info on the Stainless Steel Filters/Tops?

Each WayCap comes with 4 interchangeable Steel Filters - each one suited to a particular grind size. This means that you can enjoy an excellent, creamy espresso with whichever coffee you choose to brew. For a very fine grind, use a filter with more slots. For a coarse grind, a filter with minimal slots is best.

How sustainable are WayCap capsules?

WayCap capsules are made entirely of stainless steel, so can be reused infinitely. Aside from the spent coffee grounds, they don’t produce any waste. Their environmental impact is also minimal at every stage of production - every part of the pod is manufactured in the immediate vicinity of the warehouse, and the packaging is made entirely of recycled materials.

Are WayCap capsules easy to clean?

Simply remove the coffee grounds using the end of a teaspoon, rinse with water and wipe dry with a soft cloth. To clean your coffee pod in your dishwasher, remove the o-ring seal under the cap first. We also recommend using an eco-friendly limescale remover periodically.

What is the capacity of a WayCap capsule?

WayCap can contain up to 6g of coffee.

My WayCap top has come off in my machine, what can I do?
This can happen on the odd occasion. To remove the cap from inside the machine, remove the drip tray first and approach the cap from underneath. To avoid this occurring in the future, we recommend the following: Ensure you are using an approved compatible machine, ensure the inside of your machine is clean / recently descaled, ensure your capsule is not overfilled, and lastly ensure your WayCap is clean / dry (particularly around the silicon ring area). If you've tried the above and are still having the issue, please get in touch with our team!
