The My-Cap cap allows you to reuse your pods. Refill them with your favorite coffee or tea and recycle them many times before throwing them out. Reuse lowers the cost to brew each cup and also gives you better brews each time. In addition, you will reduce your environmental impact (see more info here). Each time you reuse a pod, you reduce the cost even more on a per-cup basis. The more you reuse your pods, the cheaper they get!
The single serve brewer standard approach involves the purchase of pods with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, etc. These pods make excellent coffee. But they each cost anywhere from $0.35 to $0.80 per cup depending on the quantity and place of purchase. If you like to drink coffee, this can add up to quite a large bill very quickly.
We recommend that you buy a bunch of caps. The main reason most people buy the single serve brewers is for convenience. When you buy just one cap, you are forced to wash out the pod and cap each time you use it defeating the convenience of the single-serve system. If you buy many caps, then you can make up a whole box of pods in advance and still have the convenience you originally were looking for. Just store the pods in some air tight container to keep them fresh.
I wanted to write and say how superior I've found your My Caps over other generic copy cats. You must be using a better grade of plastic and I've learned the hard way. After using your caps for a few years, they began to crack so I decided to purchase more. Unfortunately I was lured by a lower price and purchased generic ones only to find them all cracking within a few months. It's true. You get what you pay for! 12/2018
Questions and Answers:
Q: How many times can the cap be reused?
A: If you are careful with them, forever.
Q: Will the cap work with any pod?
A: No. You must reuse pods with filters in them to make coffee. Please note that some pods like Hot Cocoa do not have any filters in them.
Q: What is this cap made of?
A: The caps are made out of acrylic and are BPA-free.
Q: How many times can the pod be reused?
A: 10-20 times are possible. The paper filter in this pod is very durable. Wash it out every time and you will get many uses.
Q: Will my brewer be damaged?
A: No. Your brewer will not be damaged.
Q: Is the cap machine-washable?
A: Yes. It is very durable and is dishwasher-safe.
Q: How much coffee should I put in the pod?
A: Fill the pod about 3/4 of the way. Make sure you use a fine grind.
Q: What coffee grind should I use?
A: In general, very fine. The coffee used in the pods is almost an espresso grind. When you clean a pod after using it the first time, feel the coffee between your fingers. Remember that sensation - that is how the grind should feel when you grind your own coffee. Ultimately, the strength of the brew is a matter of taste, so experimenting is good. In the end, if you like it, then it is the right grind.
Q: Is there a way to use a fresh filter each time I make a pod?
A: Yes. You can purchase unformed and formed filters on our web-site. This will allow you to remove the filter that comes with the pod and insert a new filter each time.
Q: Will the cap work with 2.0 Brewers?
A: Yes. Just place our My-Cap 2.0 Ring on top of your pod with the colored portion in the 9 o'clock position, and this will allow you to brew. NOTE: If you have already installed a third-party freedom or liberty clip, it should work well without using the My-Cap 2.0 Ring.
Q: Why do the caps sometimes leak?
A: A number of issues cause leaking. Please go to our web-site at www.My-Cap.com and search on “Stop Leaking”.
