Lavazza Eco Caps Don't Work
We bought several boxes of eco caps to contribute in "saving the planet" for our Lavazza a modo mio idola machine. The caps did not work. The machine came to a grinding halt, with no coffee dispensed, and the low water light illuminated. We thought it was a fault of the machine as it was new, and sent it back. Bought another machine, and same problem!! Standard non eco caps work fine. Do not buy! These caps need redesigning.
These capsules need to be recalled!
These capsules can break your coffee machine. Firstly, they don't work properly - I've tried several times, putting the capsule in my Nespresso machine and they just block the flow of water. Took 10 mins to fill half a cup. Then, I couldn't get it out of the machine! I had to forcefully pry the lever open every time, which almost broke it. Firstly thinking it was my machine, I used my regular brand and they worked just fine. DO NOT BUY THESE CAPS, THEY DO NOT PIERCE PROPERLY AND CAN GET STUCK IN YOUR MACHINE
Poor quality replacement produce
Eco capsules do not work they fail to deliver coffee and stops the machine.Have to lift leaver on the machine more than twice to get coffee to start running. Capsules is very often damage by the rubber button on the pump head. I believe this button allows machine to pump when depressed correctly by capsule Removing capsule is also more difficult. Spoke to manufacturer they are sending some more capsules for me to try. But I am not hopefully. My machine is still under warranty so will return if problem not solved.
Great idea. Sadly they don’t work. They melt inside the machine and get stuck, exploding coffee everywhere inside the unit. We have had 3 success coffees from a whole box.
They don’t work, no water pumps through them. I co
They don’t work, no water pumps through them. I contacted Lavassa and they stated they had not received any complaints so please contact them. They are sending me some free boxes to see if it’s batch related, but I don’t think it is ☹️
The new eco pods explode in the machine
Since changing to the eco caps I have had nothing but trouble with these pods. The water flow is very reduced causing a build up of pressure in the machine and then the pods explode in the machine leaving a bitter, grainy, undrinkable coffee. I will be returning them.
Really nice coffee, they don't always puncture pro
Really nice coffee, they don't always puncture properly, but there's an easy fix, just pierce the top with a sharp knife first. Small price to pay time wise for such an eco friendly idea.
These need to be recalled immediately. They simply don't work, no coffee comes out and you end up with a cup of hot water. I get the eco bit but come on guys I expected better.
Great idea, if they worked....
It's good to see more companies try to veer away from the plastic pods and the compostable ones are a great idea, but they just dont seem to work. As everyone else seems to have discovered, they dont seem to pierce the 'mesh' properly and so gives barely any coffee and ends up building up pressure in the machine. In summary: I wouldnt buy these, am going to look for a refund. I do recommend the L'or ones as at least they are aluminium and you can sneak them into the official nespresso recycling bags :-)
They don't work!
The water wouldn't filter through the pod, so just little drops. Thought it was that my machine needed descaling, so did that and the same thing happened. Tried a different non-Lavazza Eco pod and it was fine. Looks like it's the mesh type lid on these pods that just isn't functioning right. I'll be returning these.
