Click or tap on one of the questions below to see the answer:
Do All Capsules Fit Into Any Machine?
No, there are different types of capsules which will only fit the type of machine they are produced for. Therefore, you can only use the capsules that match your machine.
You need to check the compatibility of your machine to see what capsules best suit them or if you have a favourite coffee capsule purchase a machine to suit those capsules.
Here at Capsule Pack, we provide two different types of capsules:
- Nespresso Kitchenaid Machine Green Ring BioCap
- Nespresso Lattisssima Machine Green Ring BioCap
- Nespresso Pixie Machine Green Ring BioCap
- Nespresso Inissia Machine Green Ring BioCap
- Nespresso Expert Machine Green Ring BioCap
- Nespresso Citiz Machine Green Ring BioCap
- Nespresso Creatista Machine Green Ring BioCap
What Is The Best Before Date For The Capsules?
For Nespresso Compatible we recommend capsules are used within 12 months of being produced.
For Lavazza Blue Compatible we recommend capsules are used within 2years of being produced.
Is The Blend The Same In The Capsules As What I Use In My Café?
It could be but not necessarily. We will need to test your blend in a capsule to advise whether any adjustments are required to suit a capsule format.
What Is A 'Protective Atmosphere'?
The packing room is considered a protective atmosphere because it is climate controlled between 22 and 23 degrees at all times.
The room has been set up and approved to meet food safety standards. Any coffee received is subsequently packed and stored in this environment to ensure the quality of the coffee is not compromised.
Can I Use My Own Bag Or Box For The End Consumer Pack?
Yes, you can source your own consumer packs but we will need to work with you on what is written on your bag or box so it complies with food safety standards.
Can I Print My Logo On The Capsule?
No, unfortunately, we do not support the printing of logos onto Nespresso compatible capsules at this time.
How many grams of coffee is in each capsule?
The number of grams per capsule is determined at packing time and is based on the coffee performance in the capsule format.
Capsule dose and grind is based on best performance in the Nespresso capsule machines
What Is The Best Way To Store The Capsules Once I Receive Them?
Capsules are best stored in a cool, dry place once packed. Capsules compatible with Nespresso coffee makers that have been packed directly into a retail bag need to be stored in an air tight container once opened.
For best results when using our Biodegradable & Compostable capsule in your Nespresso® machine
- Please check that the capsule container and drip tray are not full. If so empty.
- It is recommended to flush your machine prior to inserting.
- Ensure that the previous capsule has been correctly evacuated before inserting a new capsule.
