  1. 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 with hot water. I was introduced to the Aeropress by a work colleague in the office (Trying to get a private electrical appliance PAT tested in a big office is impossible), so got one myself. To partner this after much research brought a Knock Feldgrind. (I've since added the aero grind). I now use th
  2. 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? Please justify your opinions to help me make up my mind! Thanks in Advance!!
  3. 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 right hand side. My problem is that the coffee does not stop pouring even when it overflows the cup. When i press the cup button it starts to pour and when i press the same button again it stops pouring. I have tried to "program" it to only pour a desired quantity then automatically sto
  4. Hello, I need to buy a coffee machine for a (very) small office. It is important that it can serve cappuccinos. What matter is: reliability, easy of operation, quick (i.e. not requiring an employee to waste much time). Thus, an espresso machine + grinder is not an option. I have read through dozens of topics on this forum, but none of them has really addressed my questions. What options do I have and what are their pros and cons? The following are my thoughts. Do you agree? (1) All-in automated bean-to-cup machine The easiest solution, but also the most expensive and most faul
  5. My wife and I love coffee, especially flat whites but we are both students and will leave the UK in 2 years. Around a year ago we bought De'Longhi ec330 and had a terrible experience. We went through 3 of them before giving up. They simply wouldn't last. We just came from visiting friends in Spain and having a coffee after every meal was really nice. All of our friends were using Nespresso pods and the coffee was consistently good and so convenient. My wife and I are looking at the Inissia models with the Aeroccino and I'm a bit confused. KRUPS and MAGIMIX seem to make identical mode
  6. Hi All, I love single origin coffee from independent roasters. My office desk is full of various coffee paraphernalia v60, areopress, scales etc. (the list goes on) I've read the James Hoffmann blog on Nespresso Nescafe and cant wait for a Part II - if it ever happens, and I think I have already lowered my expectations for what to expect from the standard "Dolce Gusto" pods from the supermarkets. However the boss man has just brought a Nescafe Dolce Gusto pod machine for the office. I would like to buy some refillable pods from Amazon and try to fill with some HasBea
  7. Hi all just a quick hello, currently pondering shifting from nespresso tosome form of expresso machine. Just seem to think that nespresso lacks something. have posted a couple of questions on the kit forum. Cheers jon
  8. First post in these here forums, but have been reading a while. My back story is that I've had a pod machine (nespresso) for a couple of years and have got to the stage where I am a getting a bit bored with the flavour, it just seems to lack something, and I find buying more pods is difficult to work up the enthusiasm for. As a consequence of this I started looking at getting a machine, probably a used Gaggia classic. While ruminating over this with a friend in the pub he mentioned that his parents had a Gaggia coffee deluxe that had been living in a cupboard for a few years, and I should be a
  9. Hi everybody, I'm really glad I found this forum. I'm a little bit confused... Let me begin by saying that I'm an Italian living in London, we share the same passion for some good coffee My current coffee machine doesn't satisfy me anymore (Krups F880). I use Illy ground coffee (black label) but it seems that the quality of the coffee my little Krups produces has been decreasing over time. In these days it tastes like dirty water...I descaled and took care of this little coffee machine, it's 5 years old and I live in London. Perhaps the hard water has taken its toll?!? I
  10. Hello, This is my first post on this forum, so I hope I am doing everything correctly! I currently own a Nespresso Citiz and Milk machine and I love it very much and naturally as this is my first machine, I want to experiment and try lots of different recipes. It would be a fair comment to say that at the moment, whilst I do love a cup of coffee I am no taste professional. I am learning! What I am wondering though is. Does anyone here reading this add any sugar or sweeteners to a freshly brewed short or lungo espresso? In some ways I feel this is not normal, I do l
  11. Hario Skerton Grinder £20 I've only had half a bag of beans go through it (approx 125g). I bought this back in May and has very little use. I would prefer this to be picked up. I live near the tube station in Victoria (London). Nespresso Cups (170ml) - SOLD ACF Cups (160ml) - Withdrawn
  12. So, I'm a complete newbie to coffee (making). Love drinking coffee so thought I should save myself time driving to/fro multiple times a day. I was initially thinking of going straight into espresso as I normally drink lattes or macchiato. However I was on r/coffee and came across this in their crucial guide "Espresso: Espresso is a monster of the coffee world and is very much so for only those who are very dedicated to good coffee and are willing to invest a lot of money into this passion. Beginners should not start out with an espresso machine. It is just too advanced. I’m sure
  13.

  14. 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 system as well, which seems less used in the UK than the rest of Europe. A Modo Mio has better and cheaper coffee so should be a simple decision? Or not? I read that Nespresso compatible pods don't work too well because they adjusted the puncture system to make it less sharp, and the originals rem
  15. 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 settings and a shot came through in about 10 seconds. Also has anyone got anywhere near microfoam with the Aerocinno? Thanks
  16. Interesting idea from Rave, only just saw the email about it. https://ravecoffee.co.uk/products/nespresso-compatible-coffee-pods-signature-blend
  17. Just like to say Hi to everyone here. I would just like to say really nice forum, looks helpful. I've been drinking and tasting coffee for a good few years now and i enjoy various types and flavours. I recently found Nespresso coffee after watching their T.V ad. I bought my first machine and after a couple of years i still love it. I love the various capsules. Now though i found that Nespresso themselves aren't that big on press releases and there were know other websites which dedicate themselves to Nespresso, so i thought I'd have a go at making an Unofficial Nespresso blog site w

    Hola a todos! New member here from Spain. I started with a... ahem.. Nespresso... Right now I have a Duetto and a K10 Fresh. Cheers!
  19. Just started my journey looking at a nespresso u for £90. After a day of reading about doing my own espresso and latte and seeing the excitement people have for this now looking at a classic with the silva wand and a magnon grinder. That's a 400 % increase in costs if I get second hand gear. Excited about learning how to use the kit #excitedaboutcoffee!
  20. Hi friends, I hope everyone is doing well. This is a great forum! Thank you for hosting and contributing to it. I just moved to Oxford, UK from USA. I am a Graduate student at University out here, and will need to stay awake for many long hours, studying! I am thinking of buying a Capsule/POD coffee machine, e.g. Nespresso, Tassimo, Krups. I am not good in the kitchen, and looking for a simple solution to make some great tasting coffee, and maybe even tea/hot chocolate at times. If the capsule/pod machines are not recommended, then what is another good alternative?
  21. I'm a first time coffee machine buyer, and am looking for a coffee machine in the price range of £60-£80. I'm an espresso man but occasionally like the odd americano. What advice would you give me as to what to buy? I'm considering a nespresso but it seems expensive to buy the little nespresso pods. Any advice would be gladly taken. Thanks.
  22. I was given a Nespresso machine a few years ago and it did what it said on the tin, but I wasn’t upset when it went bang a couple of weeks back and I happily binned it. Wanting to enter the world of proper espresso I naively replaced it with a Delonghi bean to cup machine, which didn’t really deliver. This in hindsight is hardly suprising. Fortunately it developed a fault and it was returned. What it was useful for was to help me figure out what I wanted, which was a more hands on, learning new skills, kind of approach. Starting from scratch and doing what I should have done before,
  23. Hi I currently have a nespresso which is fine for an espresso but not great when trying to make a proper mug of coffee which i prefer first thing in the morning. I have just bought a steel french press and used it with ground coffee which tastes ok. I am thinking about buying a Bodum Bistro burr ginder which i think will be fine for french press coffee. My question is regarding beans, i am sure everyone will tell me that i should buy beans online so they are as fresh as possible. But they are twice the price of supermarket beans. Would supermarket beans be any better than
  24. 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 tend to drink a sort of poor man's flat white: 1 or 2 short shots with half a cup of lightly microwaved milk. I also think it can be improved by stopping the shot short. I've used loads of nespresso's own branded pods and not felt much love for any of them, frankly, so I haven't noted down wh
