Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where can I buy the capsules?

    You may buy the CBTL capsules from most of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® stores, or you may order directly from Next Coffee Frontier, Inc. (
  • Can I use the capsules more than once?

    To ensure the highest quality product, it is recommended that you use a capsule only once.
  • What kind of coffee and tea do you use for your capsules?

    We use only the best quality coffee and tea harvests from small artisan farms and private estates around the world. We select the top 1% Arabica beans from Latin America, Asia Pacific and East Africa, beans that are grown at high altitudes (3,500 – 6,000 feet), because cooler temperatures slow the beans’ ripening time and create more concentrated, flavorful coffees. Each batch of espresso and coffee is hand-blended and hand-roasted with care and precision to ensure that it’s done to perfection.

    Our whole-leaf tea is cultivated in the world’s most exclusive growing regions and hand-plucked, using only the top two leaves and a bud. It’s then hand-blended and hand-flavored to ensure the highest quality and consistency.

  • What capsule varieties are available?

    Multiple varieties and blends of espresso, coffee and tea. See all our capsules here.

    No, other capsule brands are not compatible and might damage the CBTL machine.

  • How do I clean the machine?

    1. Turn off the machine. Lift the lever to empty the capsule chamber, then return lever to down position.
    2. Empty and rinse out the capsule drawer thoroughly, then return to machine.
    3. Fill the water tank with the prepared descaling solution (following manufacturer’s directions) and place a cup or container on the drip tray directly under the dispensing spout.
    4. Press the small cup and medium cup icons simultaneously, while turning on the machine. The red and yellow lights will blink, indicating the machine is in descaling cycle. Press the medium cup icon to begin. The descaling solution will run through the machine in approximately 10-minute intervals for a total of approximately 30 minutes. Remember to empty your cup periodically as it fills to prevent overflow, then return to the drip tray. Once the descaling cycle is over, the medium cup icon will blink.
    5. Carefully rinse out the water tank and fill with fresh drinking water.
    6. Empty and rinse out the capsule drawer and drip tray, then replace in machine. Place your cup or container back on the drip tray.
