Ours vs. Theirs | Waycap: A Refillable Nespresso Capsule

Any product that can curb the amount of plastic that we dispose of is a winner. More and more these types of reusable products are finding their way into daily life. And with Waycap, the refillable Nespresso capsule, that includes your morning espresso.

Meet Waycap: The refillable, stainless steel espresso capsule

If you have a Nespresso machine, you know how quickly those little pods can pile up. Waycap co-founders Davide De Ruvo, Matteo Pibiri, and Matteo Rossi sure do. They noticed just how many they were burning through at their band practices and decided to do something about it.

Waycap is an eco-friendly way to enjoy a cup of espresso. Each refillable Nespresso capsule lets you choose whichever type of coffee you’d like and even lets you achieve your preferred grind. They’re easy to fill and just as easy to bring on the go making it a delicious and portable way to buck the “throwaway” lifestyle.

Is Waycap Really Eco-Friendly?

As far as eco-friendly ways to make coffee, pods are actually pretty green compared to other methods of brewing coffee. But most caps can’t be recycled. While their aluminum construction allows Nespresso® refillable pods to be recycled, you have to find the proper receptacles or send them back to Nespresso. In other words, it’s not as easy as tossing them in a blue bin.

Waycap’s refillable capsule eliminates the hassle of tracking down the right bin or even mailing back the pods. And nothing is being thrown away when you’re done using it. So, why not opt for one pod for life instead of one every day.

I’ve read each review here and all over the web before buying this capsule: there is not another product like this one! I can prepare my creamy, creamy coffee every day. I can feel better thinking there are less disposable capsules in the ocean. Such a good and green coffee, well done!

What a Nice Surprise!

I’m very happy with my brand new capsule, I’m using my favorite coffee from my roaster, a single origin from Guatemala, and the results are great.

    I wish they would have made the bigger size (Vertuo) also. I don’t have the machine that uses the smaller capsules.

    Which Nespresso coffee pot models work with this refillable capsule??

    1. Mike Lovett

      Hi there, Waycap is compatible with 12 versions of Nespresso Machines: Pixie, Inissia, Essenza, Essenza Mini, Lattissima, U, Citiz, Expert, Prodigio, Maestria, Creatista, and Nespresso by KitchenAid. It’s not compatible with Vertuo or Vertuo Deluxe models and some older Essenza models. These models are easy to identify because they have a metal lever versus a newer model with a plastic lever.

    PLEASE…….any plans for one to fit Keurig coffee makers – would really like to replace the plastic cups I use – I do not use the prepackaged cups – only my own coffee……….

      As soon as we find one, we’re launching it!
