About this project
WayCap Ez is a reusable capsule for Nespresso systems that protects the planet, allowing you to stop wasting tons of disposable pods. One that allows you to save up to 1 thousand euros on coffee per year for a family of four. But, most importantly, one that puts you back at the center, allowing you to use mostly any grind and kind of coffee available on the market, whether it’s from your favourite brand or your local coffee shop.
Last year you helped us make WayCap a reality. Today we’re back to introduce the result of all the hard work developed thanks to your precious feedback: WayCap Ez.
Waycap Ez widens the grind range to almost any kind of coffee on the market. Here’s why we’re equipping WayCap Ez with 3 different interchangeable tops, each targeted to a particular kind of coffee grind. The thinner the grind, the bigger amount of slots you should use, and vice versa. By switching them you will easily find the one that best suits your tastes.
Thanks to you, we’ve also changed the way the capsule opens and closes, to make refilling it even easier and faster. You now simply snap the top, and unsnap it.
Each WayCap is produced entirely in Italy, in timeless stainless steel, and just a bit of FDA compliant high quality silicon in the new external ring, that makes WayCap Ez even more compatible.
In order to add to your reward one of the following add-ons, please selected your pledge and add 6€ for Scovolino, 9€ for Glass Kit and 25€ for Ruvidock at your pledge amount.
Since WayCap Ez works with mostly any bland on the market, the savings can be up to 85% compared to the disposable capsules. A family of 4 can save up to 1000 Euros per year.
WayCap capsules are made of stainless steel. They're designed to last and to be refillable, so they can be reused as many times as you’d like. They don’t produce any waste except for the coffee grounds and their environmental impact is minimal in every stage of production.
Now you can finally kiss goodbye to the millions of disposable pods that accumulate in landfills
Every part of the pod, including the seals, is manufactured in the immediate vicinity of the warehouse and makes only one trip before arriving at your home.
WayCap can be refilled in 20 seconds, just enough time for the machine to warm up, using the manual dispenser, that leaves no trace.
The manual dispenser can store up to two caps that you can bring with you anywhere you go, for example at office.
WayCap is compatible with the following Nespresso® machines:
- Kitchen Aid

Risks and challenges
Last year you helped us make WayCap a reality.
It was a hard working summer and we ended up delivering our product in perfect time to all our 4 thousands backers around the world.
If the new WayCap Ez is successfully funded we are extremely confident we will be able to produce the capsules and have it sent to backers in time by June 2017, like we did in our previous campaign.
In the last three years, we have been working around the clock refining our designs: numerous prototypes have been developed and countless hours have been spent making sure the capsule will be as good as we intend them to be. After extensive research, we have also established a good relationship with a/some manufacturer/s that has many years of experiences in the field of stainless steel and is able to work to our exact specifications. But as with ANY new product, timeline is always the biggest risk. We will make every effort to deliver on time, and could even deliver the product before expected. However, there could be unforeseen circumstances that may present themselves during early production. We ask for your patience, and promise to deliver a quality product to each and every backer as soon as possible.
In any case, we will keep you informed of any changes.
Thank you for helping make this product a reality!
