Frequently Asked Questions

How to make great coffee

  1. Fill your pod to slightly more than full and then level it off with handle of the scoop.
  2. Tamp the coffee down gently.
  3. Put your pod in your machine and press the short button for a few seconds to pre-infuse the coffee. We find this gives better crema
  4. Press the short button again for your shot.
  5. If you want a longer coffee drop the pod into the tray below, close the lid and either press the short or the long button again to add more water
  6. Depending on your machine Espresso ground coffee may work however you may find the flow isn’t consistent. If this is the case then either on your home grinder or at your local store grind to about 70% of an espresso grind. Getting the grind exactly right for your pod and machine may take a bit of trial and error.
  7. In terms of strength for those who like a medium strength you should be able to find a blend/roast that works for you from the supermarket or your local roaster.
  8. If you are used to a strong coffee flavour, such as 9/10/11 you will find it difficult to find a blend/roast that gives you the exact same strength. Something like a extreme dark roast will do okay however it may give you bitter flavour.
  9. So due to popular demand we have launched a coffee blend that gives a strong flavour without any of this bitterness and tastes super yummy. You can find it under coffee on our products drop down menu above.
