Questions & Answers

Q:Can you steam/froth 1% milk? Also, the instructions say it takes about 6 minutes to produce enough steam to froth milk and then as soon as I turned the dial to steam, it steamed all over my countertop. I guess you have to have the milk and cup under the steam nozzle immediately?

        A:  If the pod will fit in a holder that is only 2 inches in diameter then you could probably use them. Another option might be to cut open the pod, pour in the grounds and tamp them down with the tamper that comes with the machine.

          A:  In theory it should work. As long as the pods fit inside the GA-125 Stainless Steel Filter Basket it will brew, but the strength of the coffee may be affected. For best results the coffee grounds should be removed from the pod and placed directly in the stainless steel filter basket.

            A:  This machine does not grind coffee beans. You will need a separate machine for grinding beans.

              A:  No it doesn't grind your coffee. You have to do that yourself. It is a great machine for the money though and it seams to hold up very well.
