Healthy: The iCafilas™ Capsule is made of stainless steel, without bisfenol A (BPA) nor aluminium, which makes it non-toxic when hot, contrary to the classical one-shot capsules.

Easy to use. The capsules are very easy to wash, by hand or in the dishwasher. We also offer you a little brush to wash more efficiently the capsule.
Flexible: You will be able to choose any coffee. Either from the supermarket or, the best option, from a local roaster (that will for sure have some special coffee that would never be available in regular capsules 😉 ).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Why are the single-use coffee capsules a real problem?
In 2018, more than 15 billion single-use capsules were thrown away, amounting to more than 100 million kilograms of waste! Help us put an end to this environmental disaster.
The machine pierce through the classic capsule, how does the Evergreen™ capsule not get damaged?
The capsule is designed so that there are holes placed that let the water pass through without any trouble. It is made of stainless steel and therefore is not damaged during the process.
Won’t this damage the machine?
No, many tests have been done and we made sure the pressure points of the machine did not receive any excessive force.
How long do they last?
If you take care of them and wash them after each use, they will last a few years. the ones we are using in our offices have more than 1 year and they still work as if they were new.
Can i use them for tea?
Yes! You can put tea bags or dry tea in the capsule. Fill it in half and you will get at least 2 cups of tea in a questions of seconds 🙂 (Use the lungo button). Depending on the tea you use, you can even get yummy foam on top!
Doesn’t Nespresso recycle their capsules?
First of all, we want to remind you that reusing is always better than recycling. Recycling requires a lot of energy and still has a negative impact, even if lesser than just using a capsule once and throwing it away. That being said, Nespresso® recently decided (was forced to?) put in place a recycling program. However, they recycle only 24% of their capsules to produce energy. Since the aluminium in their capsules needs a special alloy, only 0.1% of their capsules are made from other recycled capsules. You can get more info by reading our blog post here.
Will my machine lose its warranty if i use your capsule?
Absolutely not. Using our capsule is the same as using a compatible capsule from a brand like Lavazza® or L’Or®, the only difference is that our capsule do not create any waste.
Won’t the capsule get too hot after each use?
The capsule will indeed be hot after each use. You should wait 1 or 2 minutes before grabbing it with your hand. You can however grab it with a tool and place it under water to speed up the process. To make things easier we recommend you chose one of our discounted packs with several capsules in case you are planning to make coffees for family and friends.
