  • How often should I clean my CoffeeSock filter?
    Rinse as soon after use as is convenient and hang to dry. Oil build-up will increase with ground contact time. To remove oil build up, we suggest boiling your filter every 6-8 weeks (or as is necessary) to remove any oil build up. Boil for 10 minutes in fresh water. Repeat if build up is heavy. Add a teaspoon of baking soda or distilled vinegar to the boil to freshen, as is necessary.
  • Can I wash my CoffeeSock filter in the washing machine?
    We don’t recommend it, as detergents will flavour your brew.
  • Can I use dish soap to clean my CoffeeSock filter?
    We don’t recommend using soaps because it will leave a soapy residue and end up affecting the flavour of your brew.
  • Are the CoffeeSocks bleached?
    No, the fabric is unbleached. CoffeeSocks are made of 100% organic cotton.
  • Is my filter compostable?
    Yes! You can add to your compost bin. Cutting filter into 1 inch pieces will hasten decomposition.
  • My CoffeeSock seems clogged, why is the flow so slow?
    This may be a result of a change in grind sizing. We recommend medium coarse to coarse grounds. Alternately, this may be due to oil build up. Over time your filter will begin to develop an oil build up. This can result in a slower flow. To remove oil build up we suggest boiling your filter every 6-8 weeks (or as is necessary). Boil for 10 minutes in fresh water. Repeat if build up is heavy. Add a teaspoon of baking soda or distilled vinegar to the boil to freshen, as is necessary.
  • How long will my CoffeeSock filter last?
    Your filter can last up to a year or more. We typically suggest replacing your filter after 9-12 months.
  • Does the CoffeeSock remove oils?
    CoffeeSock filters will remove more of the coffee oils than you would find in a French Press brew, but less than paper. This is based on observation and taste tests. Lab testing has not been done.
  • How do I clean my Loca filter after use?
    After every use, gently remove the used coffee grinds and rinse the filter with hot water until the water runs clear. We don't recommend using detergent or soap of any kind.
  • My Loca appears to be clogged. How do I fix this?
    For a deeper clean (after approximately after 10 x uses or if you notice your Loca is clogged, affecting the flow rate) you can boil your Loca in a pot of clean water on the stovetop, with 2tsp of baking soda/baking powder. Do this for approximately 10mins. Once cool enough to touch (your Loca will be incredibly hot after being boiled*), rinse with warm water to ensure all baking soda is removed. *caution- rapid cooling of your Loca may cause it to crack. Let it cool down naturally- don't put it in a fridge/freezer or straight under cold water.
  • What grind size do I use for my Loca?
    Loca recommends using a grind size as course as possible. The grinds should be the size of a pen tip.
  • Do I need to have the Loca Stand to be able to brew coffee with the Loca?
    The Loca Stand is a beautiful accompaniment to any Loca filter however, the Loca filters can be used without it.
  • How do I clean my AeroPress/AeroPress Go?
    After each use simply rinse your AeroPress or AeroPress Go with warm water and allow to dry. You can also put your AeroPress in the top shelf of the dishwasher, but a simple rinse is sufficient because the plunger wipes the chamber. If your chamber ever gets sticky, wash it with vinegar. We recommend occasionally removing the seal from the end of the plunger for a good washing inside and out with warm water and dish soap. The AeroPress Go mug and lid can both be washed in warm, soapy water.
  • Can I buy replacement parts for the AeroPress/AeroPress Go?
    All components for the AeroPress and AeroPress Go can be replaced and many of our stockists carry these spare parts on hand. The components are available to all of our stockists, so if they don’t happen to have them in stock, simply ask them if they can order the part or parts in for you.

  • What grind size do I use for the AeroPress?
    There is no simple answer to this question as multiple different factors will always affect the end result.

The Picopresso is a speciality coffee brewer and takes some practice to extract the perfect shot. Variables such as the beans used and the grind size will effect how the end espresso shot is extracted and tastes. Therefore, the warranty does not cover user error.
  • Does the pumping require a lot of force?
    At the max 18 bar pressure (261 psi) you will need to press the knob with a force equal to 13 kg (28.66 lbs). To easily apply that force, we recommend to hold Picopresso with two hands as instructed in the user guide.
  • The water is not pumping through the coffee grinds. What do I do?
    STOP PUMPING IMMEDIATELY.* If you find that the water is having difficulty getting through the ground coffee, it could mean that the coffee grinds are too fine. Ensure that your ground coffee is as recommended by Wacaco. Also, ensure that you are tamping correctly. As per the included instructions, tamping should be done with the dosing ring in place, as this helps to eliminate tamping too heavily. *Continuing to pump the Picopresso when the water is having difficulty passing through the coffee grinds may result in damage to the Picopresso unit. This kind of user error is not covered under warranty.
  • My Picopresso case is not zipping up properly. What do I do?

  • Why am I getting burned or scalded milk on the bottom of the FlowTip jug?
    Burned or scalded milk on the bottom of the FlowTip jug may indicate that you are heating the milk too fast. Due to the small size of the pot and the speed at which it can heat up, it's important to always heat up the milk slowly or on your stovetops lowest setting. This should only take about 2 minutes to warm up to 55-65°C. Avoid heating up a second batch of milk without cleaning in-between as that will be more prone to burning.
  • Can I use the FlowTip Jug on an induction cooktop?
    The FlowTip jug is compatible with induction stoves but many models need to detect a minimum pot size in order to turn on. The FlowTip jug has a bottom diameter of 83mm and may not be detected by all models. An induction diffuser may be needed if your cooktop does not detect the FlowTip Jug.
  • Can I use the FlowTip Jug on a gas cooktop?
    The Flowtip jug is compatible with gas stoves. Use it on the smallest setting and make sure the handle is not directly over the flame. Note that the black model will discolour a bit at the bottom if used directly on an open flame. Using a stovetop diffuser may help to prevent this.
  • Can I use the FlowTip Jug on an electric cooktop?
    Yes. Place the Flowtip offset from the center so the handle is not directly above the heat source. Be careful with the highly abrasive electric stoves such as the models with exposed coils or rough metal surfaces as they may scratch the black finish. If your electric stovetop is not the glass/ceramic type, we recommend selecting the stainless colour jug or using a stovetop diffuser.
  • Can I use the FlowTip Jug in the microwave?
    No! Both FlowTip Jugs are made out of stainless steel.
  • How do I clean the FlowTip Jug?
    The FlowTip Jug comes with a mini cleaning brush to help remove any milk residue at the bottom and can be washed in warm, soapy water. Avoid using abrasive scourer pads on the black FlowTip Jugs as this could leave scratches. For an easy clean, rinse jugs after each use and avoid leaving any milk sitting in the bottom of the jug.
