WayCap - Refillable Coffee Capsule for Nespresso® Machines.

€234,407

WayCap capsules are compatible with Nespresso®  machines and solve the waste production problem present with disposable pods, because they can be reused as many times as you like. 

Moreover you can save up to 85% on disposable espresso pods, as they work with any coffee blend on the market.

With WayCap capsules, you can finally kiss goodbye to the millions of disposable espresso capsules that accumulate in landfills, to huge amounts of packaging, and to the tons of carbon dioxide generated for the production and distribution of the pods worldwide.

Thanks to WayCap compatible and reusable capsuless, a family of four can save more than 1,000 Euro per year, without sacrificing the taste of a fabulous cup of home-brewed espresso

WayCap works with any blend on the market, but also gives the ability to create your own personal blend. Taking advantage of the possibility of purchasing coffee from all sorts of different places, from the coffee merchant next door to the supermarket and from the organic foods shop to your favorite local café, you can save up to 85% compared to the average cost of traditional disposable capsules.

Finally, you can be in command of your own choices once again.

WayCap is also highly practical. Thanks to the dispenser provided, you’ll be able to refill your pods in less than 30 seconds.

Its unique shape has been perfected to allow for easy and quick refilling of the pod with powdered coffee without making a mess and with the ability to use a uniform pressure, thanks to the handy coffee press.

Take a look to the video below to understand how:

The dispenser allows you to bring your favorite pod with you and enjoy the taste of your coffee wherever you are. Take a look how:

The unique shape of the exit system “by slot” together with the arrangement of holes through which the water flows, allows you to obtain a perfect espresso with the vast majority of the blends on the market.

After countless tests performed over a period of almost two years, we determined the correct number, shape, and distribution of the exit slots and the entrance holes that allow the water to flow inside the pod in the same way as in a traditional espresso.

Risks and challenges

If the WayCap is successfully funded we are extremely confident we will be able to produce the capsules and have it sent to backers by June 2016.

In the last two 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!
