Product DOES not work. Davide De Ruvo, prinicpal owner of Waycap refused to provide me with a full refund. Buyer beware. Months of arguing for my money, I am still being ignored. DO NOT purchase this product. My money was stolen. Buyer beware! Horrible company. Nespresso HQ will be suing.

@Sophie. Thank you very much for your support.
We tested the silicone o-ring gaskets, they are very resistant.
You can prepare a lot of espresso without changing gaskets. Inside the Waycap EZ pack you will receive, we provide 4 additional gaskets, as spare parts. In this way, everybody can use the capsule for many years before to need more gaskets.
When somebody will contact us to receive more, we can send some of them free of charge. Best Regards

Good morning. Yes, I confirm compatibility of Waycap EZ with Nespresso Citiz machine.
Thank you very much for your support and suggestion, appreciated.

Hi creator
Did you preform quality tests on the silicone parts to check how long they will last? Will you provide extra silicone rings with the waycap ez or will you sell them online and if sold online, which way (brand-owned website, amazon-like platform...) and at what price?
Michele
Sorry, stupid question, I saw it was specifically listed as a compatible machine.
And also I was thinking that a suggestion could be to design a way to avoid the waycap ez to fall in the bucket: in the nespresso machines, when you insert the second capsule, the old one will fall in the bucket, and maybe open it every time could be messy, annoying or just dirty. Could it be possible to improve the design by adding a chain or something that prevent it to be discarded? thanks :) Good job guys!
Michele
Hello! Great Idea! is it compatible with the Citiz nespresso machine?
Niven Prasetya
Hello,
Is there any updates?
Its been 13 days since your last update. Thank you.:)

We backed the project, are media too reaching millions at times, could you throw in an extra cap if we help bring exposure and do an article too? We are http://www.technewszone.com We help education and autism too.
Emanuele
Buonasera,
volevo sapere se compatibile con la macchina Nespresso kitchenaid.
Grazie, grande prodotto!
Nelly Mataragnon
Hello, will this work on the Breville nespresso creatista plus?
WayCap
@Nicholas. Thank you so much for your comment! We are glad to help environment and permit to save some money too.
About quantity of coffee to put inside the capsule.
You can put from 5 to 6 grams of coffee; it depend by the grinding.
Using a fine ground, you can put till 6 grams inside.
Using a course ground, close to 5 grams.
I hpoe I satisfied your question, please contact me again for any information you may need. Best Regards

Very excited to have bought a family pack of these, we have been using Nespresso for years and trying new coffee's and slowly becoming a tad concerned about the waste. To the point that we were about to give up on the Nespresso.
However, I did have a general coffee question.. Roughly how many grams go into one of these pods please? We are taking out a coffee subscription and I am not sure how many grams I need in a pack. This is all new to me.
THanks again though for enabling us to continue using our expensive toy.
WayCap
@Sophie. Thank you very much for your suggestion.
We are close to launch stretch goals, I think you will see something in a few days.
Thanks

Hi! I hope to see soon some stretch goals. A little tool to remove the coffee from the capsule and to help with the cleaning would be great :-)
WayCap
@Jason @Felipe. Many thanks Jason, it is correct. We will send an e.mail to each backer before to start shipments. Everyone will receive the survey to be filled and sent back to us.
Thanks

@David. There are some countries worldwide applying importation fees.
Each custom has its own law and procedure.
According to our past experience, during the first Kickstarter campaign, it seems very difficult for us to predict which fee and how much the customs could apply on imported goods. Best Regards
Giuliano

@ Felipe the creator will send out a questionnaire at an appropriate stage of the campaign where you will be required to fill out your details such as delivery address etc.

Hi! This is my first sponsorship. My question is, how do you know where to ship the product? P.S what an amazing product!!
Sophie
Hi creator
Ok waiting for your tests and feedbacks about Le Cube ;-)!
WayCap
@Sophie,@Loupe
The capsule is working with Nespresso Cube, but there is a resistance when you close the lever, as Teng said in his comment.
This is why we prefer don’t give the compatibilty at the moment.
We are working on this, we hope to solve the issue soon. Best Regards

Dear Felix, I saw you live in Chile, it is difficult for me to suggest a brand of coffee in Chile. Anyway, I should not mention brands of coffee, in general. Waycap EZ, with the three interchangeble tops, allows you to use a large range of grinded coffee you can find in markets. Best grind is fine, but don’t buy the finest (turkish coffee).
Use the top with 21 slots for fine coffee, you can use the others with a coarser coffee grind. Or, you can use a coffee grinder at home, setting it on the grind level you prefer. You can make some experiments with the three tops, and choose the right balance between grind level and Waycap top, according to your taste.
You also can buy grinded coffee in a roaster coffeeeshop. (Torrador en espanhol).
Here, I beleive you can find the best quality coffee. Please contact me again for any information you may need. Best Regards

Loupe System, are u referring to Le Cube Nespresso? Worked for Le Cube (which I am using). It will be a little tighter (resistance) when pulling down the lever as compared to Nespresso capsules.
Loupe System
Hello.
Have you been able to test these capsules on a Cube Nespresso machine?
Thanks
Sophie
@Jerry yes :-) I get it now ;-) thank you so much for the detailed explanation! Still thinking it would have been easier (for nice explainers who helped me especially) to have a 3D or drawing from the creators but the target (me understanding :-p) is reached :-)! Have all a nice day.
Jerry
@Sophie - You have an inquisitive mind which I appreciate since I am the same. You wondered why water doesn't "go around" the capsule when it is stainless steel and not punctured by the needles. The reason is the Nespresso machines "clamp" onto the top rim so the only way for water to go is through the capsule (since there is no way to go around the capsule). Have you ever noticed these is watery coffee in the drip tray? This is because if some water does try to go around it only gets as far as the rim (so no watery coffee gets into your cup) - but when you eject the capsule this watery coffee goes into the drip tray. The new gasket WayCap is using between the lid and the top rim (kind of like an Oreo cookie with SS on top and bottom and o-ring in between) will allow the clamping mechanism enough flexibility to make a good seal. This is a major improvement since a rigid rim was used on the prior version: 1) capsules that Nespresso makes are aluminum (which is soft and malleable) so they clamp well even if the clamping mechanism is a bit tight, 2) a hard metal like stainless steel doesn't give at all so on some machines using the prior version the lever could be hard to close, 3) on this latest version the gasket inside the rim provides flexibility to allow the lever to close and make a good seal even if the mechanism is a bit tight. Does that help?
David
@WayCap : VERY nice product if it works well ! I'm living in Canada, will I have to pay additional shipping fees for customs ? Thanks !
gryphonent
@WayCap... thanks for addressing my question. Too many Kickstarters these days that fail to deliver.
WayCap
@Teng San Soo Hi Teng, many thanks for your appreciation. WayCap Ez is an evolution of the first one. Now you have 3 interchangeable tops to choose from, each one with a different number of slots and targeted to a particular coffee grind.
The thinner the grind, the bigger number of slots you should use,
and vice versa. By switching them you will easily find the one that best suits your tastes. Now it will be much more easier to get a perfect extraction for your espresso. Many thanks,
Davide

I really will love a list of coffee brands that work, Im new in the coffee world
Sophie
Hi Jason Lowe
Yes that is what I saw but in this case, how does the coffee not spread outside the waycap once the hot water under pressure (needed for an espresso / 19 bars) :-)? Still seems dark to me ;-)
Jason Lowe
@ Sophie if my understand is correct, the Waycap will have holes on the bottom of the cap designed into it, so doesn't require the machine to punch the holes. That must then allow the hot water under pressure into the capsule.
Teng San Soo
I can vouch for that. This is one of the few projects that delivered on time (at least as far I remembered). Am also happy with the quality though need some form of experiment and getting used to, to get the quality of espresso (alot depends on the beans and grind). Got myself 2 of the previous version and now pledged for 2 of v2.0 :).
WayCap
@gryphonent Hi gryphonent, during our previous campaign we delivered in time to all backers who answered the survey we made through the kickstarter platform. Unfortunately a few of them didn't answer the survey and we managed them one by one as soon we received the info needed for the shipment. Many thanks, all the best, Davide
Sophie
Hi Jerry thanks for the detailed explanation
:-) Hi creator
I'm probably not awaken enough or my English is to poor but I do not understand how water under pressure can go through the waycap without machine needles to touch it - the machine capsule chamber is not designed to create the pressure by itself, only the capsules... could you make a video with some kind of a 3D vision of water flow? Or at least a video with drawings / sectional views explaining water flows in the waycap?
Also, my limited edition Cube by Nespresso is indeed a Cube by Nespresso - can you answer then about waycap compatibility with it?
WayCap
@jerry Hi Jerry, we thank you so much for your kind words. The success of the previous kickstarter campaign has enabled us to continue to invest in R&D, and has allowed us to develop an improved product. But surely the most important thing for us has been the feedbacks from our backers, who have charted the direction of this improvement. That's why we say and mean that WayCap Ez is 'made with you '. You backers supported us in so many ways!! Thanks!
Davide
WayCap
@jerry, @jason, @daniel, @sophie Many thanks Jerry for your fast answer. We wouldn't have been able to explain it better. You're a WayCap Master now!! Davide
WayCap
@sophie Hi Sophie, unfortunately we didn't test WayCap with that limited edition machine, so we cannot give you the full compatibility. Very sorry about that.
Davide
Jason Lowe
Jerry*** sorry!
Jason Lowe
@James thanks very much for the detailed explanation! :-)
Jerry
@Jason, @Sophie, @Daniel - I have version 1.0 of these and people asked the same question about hole punching for that campaign - these are an upgraded version but the principle is the same. The Nespresso machine punches three holes in their aluminum capsules on the bottom (narrow end) to put the water in and then pressure builds up inside the capsule and balloons out the foil which gets pressed on a square grid pattern which tears the foil to let the coffee out. The WayCap capsules are cleverly designed so they work without needing to be punctured either on the water input side or the coffee outlet side of the capsule and they do this without risking damage to the needles or grid and without needing to align the capsule in any particular way so as to avoid damaging the needles: 1) on the narrow end of the WayCap capsule there is a depressed area the shape of a ring so no matter how the capsule is inserted the needles don't even touch the capsule, and 2) on the wider output side of the capsule the flat filter disc is depress slightly back from the rim so it doesn't touch the grid (and since it is rigid and already has openings it doesn't balloon out like the thin foil on Nespresso capsules. Bottom line: just pop it in, close the lever, and you have espresso without worry of damaging the needles and without risk the needles with damage the capsule!
Jerry
@WayCap - I'm really glad to see you're back with another project. I backed your last campaign for version 1.0 which I thought were terrific (very high quality and easier to use than other competing stainless steel capsules) - frankly, I didn't think there was room for improvement but it looks like you proved me wrong. The ability to vary the flow rate through the capsule by choosing a different filter plate depending on grind size is a killer idea - no other capsule that I've seen offers this feature. The other thing is your using the push on top instead of screw-on top will make it even faster to refill. Lastly, since you are using a gasket between the top and the body of the capsule this means the capsule will have some "compressibility" instead of being totally rigid - I suspect this feature is why your latest capsule will be even more compatible. Congratulations on so many excellent improvements!

@Creator: Looking at your previous Kickstarter's comments there seems to be a lot of backers who never received the product they pledged for. Care to explain?
Daniel Suliman
Hi, do I need to put in certain ways or direction when I put this into the Nespresso machine remembering the cover lid is made from stainless steel and there is certain holes pattern? Also, how long can I reuse the top lid part as it's made from stainless steel?
Sophie
Hi creator
I have a limited edition cube (americas' cup in carbon fiber) from Nespresso and wanted to know if waycap will be compatible? Also, same question than Jason Lowe ==> what about the wholes the machine is doing to original capsules? What does it do to the waycap? And will it damage this part of my machine?
Jason Lowe
Hi Davide... thanks for the confirmation! How would the spikes inside my machine that punch holes into the normal disposable pods not be damaged by your stainless steel ones? Sorry about all the questions, just trying to get an understanding of how these work! Thanks!
WayCap
@jason Hi Jason, yes WayCap is compatible with Magimix Citiz. Many thanks for your support! Davide
Jason Lowe
Hi, this product looks really great. However after pledging I've read a comment stating that the Waycap isn't compatible with all Nespresso machines? I have a Magimx Citiz that I've had for about 2 years. How do know if the Waycap would be compatible or not? I believe Nesresso don't actually endorse any capsules other than their own? My machine punches holes in both the top and bottom of the Nespresso capsule, how does the Waycap get around this? Thanks for any help and advice!
