Re using Nespresso Capsules is great for the planet and this video shows you how it is possible. I do think however that using a capsule or pod made for the purpose of reuse is better for our health. Thin aluminum designed to be used once is probably not the best alternative. Using a capsule that has been designed to throw away more that a few times is good however I think it is better to use some of the alternative bpa free plastic capsules available today that are made specifically for reuse.
Lets face it, if you caught with no nespresso capsules at home this could be the perfect solution for a coffee craving. It will also reduce your nespresso waste by the amount of times your reuse your capsule.
New U nespresso machine and refillable reusable coffee capsules are compatible. Yes! They do work.
The refillable reusable pods also work in pixie, citiz, essenza, lattisma and are also compatible with the new U nespresso.
With the new U machine usually retailing for approx $249 its my best value nespresso machine pick! I know I want to replace my pixie machine with a U Nespresso. I have a perfectly good nespresso machine although when I looked at the U machine in store and the new inbuilt features I wanted one.
What is New With U Nespresso
I discovered there is no a great deal of difference in the coffee. It uses the same coffee pods and capsules. The big magic for me for me is all in the new slider mechanism at the top of the machine, the 3 programmable coffee sizes , the automatic capsule injection, its swivel water tank space saving, plus magnetic drip tray are all worthwhile improvements.
The tray removes really easily because of its magnets…this is so cool. Of course the trays remove relatively easily on the citiz and pixie but it’s just not as smooth as the versatile tray that you can simply remove and even store on the side of the machine, as a space saver when not in use.
U Triumphs Citiz and Pixie
So with this little feature alone it triumphs the citiz and pixie in my view but that is not the most enticing feature . The U machine although larger than the pixie a great space saver because you can easily swivel the water tank around to fit a variety of spaces for storage or use. You have 3 different brew sizes as opposed to 2 brew sizes on the citiz and pixie and you have buttons which are touch sensitive instead of physical push buttons, which is nice.
Favourite New U Nespresso Feature
The most important change in this new machine is what I love. The new slider mechanism with automatic capsule injection is by far the best thing about the new U!
It means that when I make my nespresso I don’t have to release the nespresso coffee pod after making the coffee. This is wonderful! Why…because I usually want to make my nespresso fast and the problem with that is I often tend to leave the capsule engaged rather than eject when finished. What I discovered is that if you do this regularly with your machine it can start to rust the piercing needles of your machine These needles puncture your nespresso capsules when making espresso. You will avoid this problem totally with the new U Nepresso Machine.
In 4 Easy Steps Save Money, Never Run Out Of Nespresso Again & Enjoy Unlimited Choices with your family and friends..
It’s really quite simple…
Step 1 Check your nespresso machine date
if your machine is build pre 2o1o take off the red seal on your refillable capsule. If it is built after 2010 leave on the red seal.
Step 2 Refill Nespresso Pod : Fill with espresso coffee…a fine grind of espresso can
work well but it can take some experimentation. Try a loose fill, I usually find that works well. If you like really strong coffee you may want to use 2 caps for one coffee.
Step 3 Wipe off excess coffee grind from the edges & just notice the level you have filled your pod to. You may want to try filling to the top or just below the top and see what your machine likes best.
Step 4 Place your filled nespresso pod in your machine it should sit at the same angle your nespresso capsules do.
most machines have a little runner or guide that it slots into. Now your ready to have start the coffee making button.
Tip:I found I was drinking so many nespresso coffee’s per day and my body didn’t like all the extra milk I was having, so
I now just add a little milk to a large size nespresso and I still enjoy…
You will either love use these little refillable nespresso compatible pods or you just won’t! It is as simple as that…I have sold lots of these and the feedback is always the same… Love or not what expected. Fortunately it is only a very small percentage of customers that don’t like them. The only way is to just to get some and try them out.

I have been up to no good – designing a stainless steel refillable Pods compatible with Nespresso.
Stainless Steelnespresso nespresso compatible Refillable Coffee Pods.This might sound strange but it is just a way of describing the end result of our efforts.
Here is our story….It all started with an idea!
You know how tea always tastes better if made in a metal tea pot, for some strange reason I thought coffee would taste better in a stainless steel pod rather than a plastic refillable.
So I went about finding someone to manufacture a stainless steel refillable coffee pod compatible with nespresso. As good as my idea was in theory the practical side didn’t really measure up.
I ended up with a stainless steel pods that would cost approx $150 au to make that did not produce a better crème than the plastic version of refillable we now have available at our website .
I call it mischief managed because after great trial and error I managed to come up with a result – “No Good” Our engineer Richard was terrific and helped with idea after idea and Joshua spent many hours turning out prototypes. It made us really appreciate the BPA free plastic version so much!
Here is what happened – Refillable Coffee Capsule Prototype A
We tried drilling larger holes in an under performing capsule:-
This capsule fitted in the machine but it felt like a squeeze.. we had to adjust the capsule to go in to our pixie,I think we shaved off some plastic in our nespresso machine trying to line up the corrugated sides with inside the machine and the angle was just slightly funny. Even though this design did work with smaller holes the coffee didn’t flow very well.
What we tried were larger holes! The idea was that it would provide a better flow through. We were disappointed that there was no improvement on flow or the creme.
We shortened the capsule and drilled lots of tiny holes in the base
and the lid. This once again did work however didn’t produce
much creme. The problem with this capsule was that it took ages
to produce, broke heaps of drills and cost about $150 to make because of
the time it took to drill the tiniest small holes.
It was just not commercially viable to produce for our customers
Next up we put a different lid as per the photo above…We found that using this style of coffee pod at the base with the new open lid and some foil wrapped over the whole lid at the top created a good creme.
Actually it was one of our wonderful customers who suggested this…Thanks Roy the foil trick
it did work! It just cost too much to drill the tiny holes in the base.
So after much ado and many cups of coffee in a hot little kitchen at the back of the industrial site,
we tried make the holes slightly larger on the base and the lid…with different sized drills.
Next up was the idea….
We thought trying a capsule with a very fine stainless steel filer at the base or at the top could reduce
the manufacturing expense. It was a good idea in theory…here is what it looked like.
Alas…the outcome was very disappointing. Although the flow rate was great there was
absolutely zero creme that came through. Even though we tried micro mesh sizes and larger
sizes we had to let go of this idea totally. Disheartened we kept going…trying larger holes
at the base and the lid there were so many trials we lost count.
Testing the stainless steel versions of coffee pod seemed to be very hard on my little pixie machine.
There was one design that worked but it just didn’t seem as good as the plastic emo4 version with twin filters one at the top and one at the base.
All the testing Lead to Our Conclusion:
The new Emo4 Refillable Nespresso Compatible Capsule Pod available on our website now is a winner in our book!
Please leave us some comments and tell us what you think… We have decided it best to let the idea go…
UpDate 1:- Thanks to all the wonderful people who wrote to me saying they want stainless steel aldi capsules or nespresso capsules much appreciated.
Update 2:- There are no refillable aldi capsules in the market place and the best refillable nespresso pods we think in the market place are EMO4T see what I have to say about them here…(link to new article coming soon)
What is the Best Coffee to use in your refillable nespresso pods is a frequently asked question.
Experimenting with refillable coffee pods is the best way to great value from your nespresso compatible coffee pods and all hinges on the type of coffee grind you choose.
Because refillable nespresso pods are a relatively new concept it can take a few trys before you get your coffee mix the way you want it.
I found that once I started using a coffee I liked I saved a lot on nespresso capsules. I didn’t stop using them altogether, just a lot less frequently.
I even mixed it up with a few nespresso capsules as well. One of my favourite was a Roma capsule with my favourite refillable filled with Italian espresso. I found it was stronger and full of flavor, even better than some of my local café espresso. Try it… and you will know what I am saying.
If you use a grind that is not suitable then you may not have the right amount of water flow in your nespresso machine. It is important to avoid coarse coffee bean grinds that won’t allow enough water to flow through and make a great tasting espresso.
Most espresso blends work well. If you open the inside of a nespresso capsule you find a very finely even ground coffee. You won’t be able to match that completely but to get similar results you will need to use a similar grind.
I have found that espresso ground specifically for espresso machines to work quite well. The crème is not exactly the same but makes a great change from nespresso capsules in my machine.
Here is a Video of what your coffee should look like:-
One of our customers, and well you know who you are recommends Buzz Coffee Grind 4.
He has a Lattisma machine and initially had to experiment before he found a blend that would flow well in his machine. I use a pixie and I found that other blends worked fine but did not taste as nice as an espresso coffee blend.
