I would like to grind fresh coffee beans to use in my WayCap Dolce Gusto®* capsule, what kind of grinder should I use?

We recommend using a burr grinder for the best results, as blade grinders may create too much dust. Or alternatively, check out our delicious Bespoke Blend, ground specifically for use with your reusable pods!

Can I get some tips on improving my cuppa now that I'm brewing with real coffee?

Sure thing! Your brew results will vary, dependant on which coffee you use, and how you use it. You can check out our top tips here.

How do I remove and clean my capsule?

After each use, we recommend waiting 10 minutes before cleaning - this will allow the capsule to cool, and the pressure to return to normal (allowing the lever to be opened easily avoiding damage to the Silicone Cap). Ensuring the capsule is cool, remove the Silicone Cap, and remove the coffee grounds with the handle of a teaspoon. Rinse with water, and wipe with a soft, dry cloth.

Can I get detailed instructions on brewing with WayCap for Dolce Gusto®*?

Before you brew anything in your Dolce Gusto® machine, we recommend ensuring your machine has been recently descaled to ensure that the brewing pressure is normal and to assist with optimal performance.

Step 1. Prepare the capsule
Remove the Silicone Cap, ensure the components are are perfectly dry, and place into the Dock. Select your Filter, and place in the base of your Capsule.

Step 2. Fill with coffee and tamp
Using a teaspoon, fill with around 7.5g-8.5g of ground coffee. Press lightly with the Tamper, filling the capsule to two-thirds capacity. Please note: Over-filling or under-filling may cause the cover to open during the brewing process. *Overfilling the capsule may result in incomplete closure of the Cap, risking damage to the machine.*

Step 3. Place the Silicone Cap on top of the Capsule, pressing until it is completely closed.

Step 4. Place the Capsule into the capsule holder of the machine
Align the front of the Silicone Cap (where the small hole is located) with the centre of the machine's capsule holder. If the machine lever doesn't close, double check that you have aligned the capsule correctly.

Step 5. Brew!
