So we’ve opened your mind to how good capsule coffee can be and now it’s time to take it to the next level.

In most cases, we recommend brewing our capsules as a 25ml shot - this creates the perfect ratio of ground coffee to water and will deliver the best flavour.  Most regular capsule machines are pre-programmed to 25 ml and 40 ml, but if your machine is not you have some work to do. Don’t worry, it’s easier than you think.

Step 1: Fill your machine up with filtered water and bring up to temperature.
Step 2: Load an Allpress Specialty Capsule and arm the machine.
Step 3: Place a 25ml shot measure under the brewer (you can also use an electric scale - the brew weight for 25 ml is 25 g)
Step 4: Push and hold the small shot button until you reach your desired volume and release.

Congratulations! You have reprogrammed your machine. Told you it was easy! Now your machine is set up head over to our brew guide to learn how to make your favourite cafe coffee. 

*This method for reprogramming your machine might look a little different if you’re using another 3rd party capsule machine. In these cases, it’s always best to check your owners manual and follow the manufacturers' instructions.
