CDR wrote:TomC, I just placed an order for these refillable capsules. I have a Nespresso Citiz D110, and I'm wondering if, when you use the refillable capsule in this machine, do you have to "orient" the plastic capsule in any way--or do the multiple small holes in the narrow end of the capsule automatically line up correctly? In other words, do you just put the plastic capsule in any way and it works, or do you have to position it in a certain way? Thanks! Just curious!
CDR wrote:Hi, Tom! Thanks for asking! I did receive them and tried two or three times so far. The first thing that I noticed was that the capsule seems to load into the "firing chamber" in a somewhat "rough" manner. By that, I mean that when I close the lever, I think the plastic capsule exterior is a bit rougher than the factory ones, so there seems to be some friction. I have to admit that that worries me--I wonder if the plastic ones will produce excessive wear on the mechanism. Secondly, the first shot I tried to make using some coffee that I had ground was much too "short," and the second one I tried, with coffee that I had ground for another machine, really struggled to produce any coffee! The coffee was ground too fine! So, I'm holding off on experimenting any more for the time being and focusing on cycling through my other brewing devices. Eventually, I'll come back around to experimenting with the ECO caps. Has your experience with them continued to be good, or has it evolved in any way? Thanks for the input!

thanks for your help..
