    Hi All.Newbie here, so please be easy on me. After drinking mainly instant then Netspresso for many years, Ive decided to go for an espresso setup. I mainly drink tall (not too) milky coffee but used heated miIk rather than frothed. (I'm a bit non plussed about the foam)., and then topped up...

    Yes a cartoon, but far to serious for the 'Funnies' thread. And to keep Lord Gnome happy..... Taken from Private Eye 1517, available from all good newsagents for £2 or cheaper by subscription! Google is your friend.

    Before I throw this away, if anyone needs any internals from this Nespresso Pixie machine let me know. It was dismantled because it stopped pumping water, so you won't want the pump but everything else is fine. It's going to go to the tip otherwise :)

    I'm spending a month working in Portugal where the local coffee is dreadful, bitter, UHT milk etc. I'm desperately missing my daily latte but have a Nespresso machine and an Aerocinno in my villa. Has anyone any tips for achieving best extraction from the Nespresso? Yesterday I used factory...

    My old Nespresso machine packed up last November so my family bought me this spanking new Sage Nespresso Creatista Royal Champagne Coffee Machine, thought I would get it out and try it out this week, fabulously good looking machine, Now I have a Profitec 600 Dual Boiler and have struggled to...

    The interesting fact at nespresso is that - despit it never tastes really great - it also never tastes really bad. How do they do that? You can use the same capsule and let the machine run 20 seconds or a minute or even pause the extraction it for 15 seconds and then continue (in which the...

    I have a nespresso machine at work. I don't much like the coffee I get out of it but needs must. It's time to place a new order so I'm going to test whether I can improve things by changing the pods. Does anyone have experience with alternative brands of pod? It's a basic nespresso machine and...

    I'm new to pods, but getting excited waiting for a Nespresso Inissia to arrive. In the meantime my research is telling me that the Lavazza A Modo Mio system brews better coffee, so wondering about a cheap Minu machine. There's also the Dolce Gusto system to complicate things, plus the Caffitaly...

    Hi all, Question I couldn't see as asked yet (forgive me if I'm wrong). I've recently started off my at-home brewed coffee journey with a Nespresso Inissia and their "Aeroccino 3" milk frother. Now, the frother works very well, heats it and produces plenty of nice stiff silky microfoam...

    I have a Nespresso Maestria bought 4 years ago. Always good. Now when turned on espresso and lungo lights flash rapidly, on a 3-4 time cycle and then lights go off (main switch still on)..won´t work. I´ve tried, descaling, emptying....everything indicated in the manual and...nothing I filmed...

    Hi, I am buying my dad a Nespresso Machine for Christmas. A couple of questions: 1. Do I get Dad an Inissia (currently on offer for £49 with a free Aeroccino) or a citiz and milk? 2. Do I buy myself a Inissia for work, or take my Dad's old Dolce Gusto to work once he gets his new Nespresso...

    I have this machine model, but the online manuals refer to a slightly different machine (possibly a newer model) The manuals refer to a machine that has a expresso cup button and a lungo cup button. My machine has a power button on the left hand side which illuminates and a cup button on the...

    hi all I know the title may make aficionados cringe, but bear with me... got a nespresso machine and bought a steel pod to save wasting plastic but also, to put in better quality espresso coffee. my question is - when I fill them, I either don't "tap down" the coffee much and it flows fine...

    Yep, as the title says. Time to say hello and introduce myself. It's nice to have a good coffee forum here in the UK and I've enjoyed reading many, many of the posts as I try to gain more knowledge and better my Barista skills. I know the US has the two big forums but I find them very US-entric...

    Recently got a Nespresso machine, an entry-level Inissia which was just under £50 - obviously Nespresso as a concept is not for most of us on this forum and I've been on here long enough/appreciate good coffee enough to fully understand why that is (I didn't drink coffee for 20 odd years because...
