For a custom amount of coffee, press and hold either of the brew ratio buttons until the machine has outputted your desired amount of coffee. The memory function on each button will remember your set preferences for next time.
To change back to the original brew ratio settings, perform a factory reset.
How often you should descale your machine depends on the amount of lime in the water in your area. For a moderate amount, we recommend descaling at least twice a year. For areas with mineral-rich water, it should be up to once every third month. Watch here how to descale your machine.
Turn the machine ON and fill up the water tank. Have the capsule inlet lever in its upright position and push it slightly further back towards the back of the machine until you hear a sound. Run a cup of water through the machine before brewing a cup of coffee by pressing either the espresso or the Lungo button. Your machine is deaired when water comes out of the nozzle. Watch here how to de-air your machine.
Turn the machine OFF. Press and hold the Lungo button and turn the machine ON while still pressing the button. Here you can watch how it is done.

Coffee & Capsules
The Sjöstrand Coffee capsules are made of starch and plant-based materials such as sugar canes.
Our capsules can be used in all Sjöstrand machines and in Nespresso machines that run with Nespresso-Original capsules. Please note that we cannot guarantee flawless functionality with other brands, even though they might be built to run with Nespresso-Original capsules too.
All Sjöstrand and Nespresso-Original capsules work in our machine. This means that these are the capsules we do testing and we can guarantee compatibility for. Please note that Nespresso offers several different capsules that would not work as they are not similar to our capsules in shape and size. Even though our machine is designed to work with other Nespresso Original compatible capsules we can never guarantee the product quality of another company. Variations in material or coffee grind may affect performance and results when used in our machine.
Our capsules are made for industry compost, meaning that they cannot be thrown in the bag for food waste in most Swedish cities. In many places the capsules can be thrown into the organic waste bin. To be completely sure, check what applies where you live.
Yes, however it requires certain conditions for the degradation which is why the capsules are not made for home composting. An industrial composting facility can easily decompose the capsules in 12 weeks. Here you can read more about our capsules.
