Bluecup: create the best espresso with your Nespresso® machine: environmentally friendly, friendly for your wallet, and your choice of coffee.
Do you like espresso from your Nespresso® machine, but do you find them expensive and the amount of waste they are creating enormous?
Bluecup: the advantage
- Bluecup is your choice of espresso
- Bluecup is 99 x more environmentally friendly than prefilled capsules
- Bluecup is friendly for your wallet
Three years ago, we started the idea to create a reusable and refillable capsule for use in Nespresso® machines, for half of the price than bought within Nespresso® stores. We created the Bluecup system. The system is patented, fully tested and in production. Bluecup is ready for the next step, and we are proud to give you the opportunity to be the first one using Bluecup!
The Bluecup systems contains:
- refillable capsules
- replaceable aluminum foils
- a capsule creator
- a spoon (to fill capsules easily and efficient).
With Bluecup you can enjoy delicious cups of coffee made of your favorite espresso grind. You choose your own flavor: you can decide to make your own grind from fresh roasted beans, you can buy from your local espresso boutique, or you can finally use that fairtrade espresso coffee. You can let others benefit too by using Bluecup!
Bluecup: unique combination of benefits
We think you'll love Bluecup for different or any reason. We tried to mention the benefits in any order, of which we believe together these will make Bluecup a unique concept:
• Best Coffee: use your own coffee.
• Less costly: merely one-third of the price of a normal capsule
• Unique: patented, tested over 10.000 times, never watery coffee.
• Environment-friendly capsules can be reused over and over again (over 100 times).
Bluecup: how it works
To create your Bluecup capsules is very easy:
- Simply take a capsule and click the capsule in the spoon.
- Fill the capsule with your espresso.
- Place the capsule into the cupcreator.
- Then put a foil on top of the capsule.
- Press and turn the cupcreator, and your capsule is machine-ready!
In less than 25 seconds you create your own Bluecup, faster than the machine creates an espresso.
Bluecup makes no deformations to the machine nor the capsule itself is damaged. We tested the extraction process to make sure the capsules will fit perfectly. Bluecup is compatible with stand-alone Nespresso systems produced after October 2010.

Bluecup: the team
Bluecup is an initiative of a bunch of passionate espresso aficionados with a love for espresso. Guys with a sense of flavor and taste, who like to live life to the fullest. In our opinion, Nespresso cups have issues regarding freedom of choice, environmental aspects and price setting. We wanted an espresso that was better for the environment and could be made using our own choice of coffee, whether they were ground or ready-ground. This desire led to an innovative search that ultimately resulted into the development of Bluecup. Bluecup is patented and undoubtedly revolutionizes the creation of a perfect espresso! So… espresso yourself!
