  • How to do an Espresso with your pods?
    1 pod represents single shot espresso. Larger coffee drinks will require double shot to enhance authentic coffee flavour. Most Nespresso® machines have buttons or dials to select the desired espresso size. Typically, you can choose between a single (about 1 ounce) or double (about 2 ounces) shot. Each capsule represents a single shot of coffee 35 to 40 ml.
  • How to prepare Americano or Long Black coffee?
    After your espresso is brewed, add hot water to the cup. The ratio of water to espresso in an Americano can vary based on your preference but a common ratio is 1:1 (equal parts espresso and hot water). Adjust to your desired strength by adding more or less hot water or brew one more espresso to increase the flavour. ☕️
  • Can I use pods for a "White Coffee" (Flat White, Cappuccino, Latte)?
    Sure thing! 😋 While the coffee is brewing, prepare the milk. You'll need to steam and froth it to create a creamy texture. For the best experience use around 6 ounces for a single shot and 8 to 10 ounces of milk for a double shot. Feel free to add an extra shot to a smaller drink if you prefer a stronger drink. All good coffee shops base their milk drinks on a double espresso. You can use a steam frother or milk frothing device for this. Pour cold milk into your frother. Froth the milk until it becomes creamy and velvety. Aim for a microfoam with fine bubbles. The milk should be silky in texture, not too thick. Be sure not to overheat the milk; it should be warm but not scalding. Once your coffee is brewed and the milk is frothed gently pour the frothed milk over the espresso. Voila! ❤️

  • Can I make milk foam on my Bean To Cup Machine at home?
    Steaming milk on a bean-to-cup coffee machine can vary slightly depending on the specific make and model of the machine. 1. Start with cold milk. Note that whole milk, 2%, and skim milk / alternatives produce slightly different textures and flavours. 2. Let a small amount of steam escape. This clears any residual water from the wand. 3. The steam wand has to be be properly positioned - just below the surface of the milk but not touching the bottom of the container/pitcher/jug. 4. Immerse the wand into the milk, open the steam valve and position the wand to create a whirlpool effect. 5. Keep an eye on the milk's temperature. You want to heat it to around 150-160°F (65-71°C). Aim for a temperature where you can touch the pitcher but can’t hold it for a long period of time. 6. Once you are happy with the temperature and froth, turn off the steam function. 7. After use, wipe the steam wand with a damp cloth (or use the steam wand cleaning function if your machine has one). 8. Pour the steamed milk into your drink and enjoy. Always refer to your machine's user manual for detailed instructions.
