How to make a planet-friendly coffee with your Lavazza A Modo Mio or Lavazza Blue machine

We all know that reusing is not only economical, but also helps us to significantly reduce the impact on our beautiful Earth. We're always on the lookout for ways to help our coffee loving community to reduce their waste, and our accessories for popular Lavazza® machines do just that. 

How do I reuse my Lavazza capsules?

This hack is super simple! To get started, you'll need an empty Lavazza A Modo Mio or Lavazza Blue pod, and a My-Cap My-Foil pack.

Step 1. Fill the empty capsule with coffee (ground to a consistency between fine and extra fine), and tamp firmly. 
Step 2. Give the edges of the capsule a quick brush off to remove loose grinds, then place the foil seal on top, pressing firmly but gently around the edges. 
Step 3. Place the capsule into the machine and close the handle. 
Step 4. Brew and enjoy!

Why we think you'll love it

Where to start! Firstly, as mentioned reusing is far more sustainable that landfilling (of course), and even recycling. Minimising your consumption is a big factor when it comes to reducing your environmental footprint. Our reusable My-Cap accessories allow you to refill your Lavazza pods, substantially reducing your kitchen waste. 

Secondly, refilling with your own coffee will certainly save you some cash. Lavazza pods range from $0.69c-0.71c each. Cost per brew when using My-Cap is around 0.19c per shot (based on ground coffee at $28.00 per kilo). We've estimated that an average household could save roughly around $745 annually simply by making the switch from disposable to reusable.


And of course lastly, who doesn't want that fresh coffee smell back in their kitchen? The best espresso is always made with freshly roasted and ground coffee! One of the reasons we love refillable capsules is that fact that we can shop locally for coffee beans - you're free to use whatever brand you choose. Reusables mean that you can hit up your favourite cafe or roaster for your freshly ground coffee blend. Decaf, organic, single-origin, specialty or fairtrade - you name it!

My-Foil seals are compatible with Lavazza A Modo Mio, Lavazza Blue, Caffitaly, Keurig, Starbucks Verismo and CBTL capsules.
