How to choose the right Nespresso machine for you

Nespresso offers consistently top notch coffee at the touch of a button. The secret lies in their 19 bar high pressure extraction system, that releases the fresh aromas and rich coffee blend flavours. We love their innovative designs and ease of use of each machine.

Nespresso’s range of automatic espresso machines come in a variety of styles and colours to suit both your kitchen and lifestyle, from the Essenza Mini to Creatista Plus. But, with so many beautiful machines and options, how do you choose a Nespresso machine that’s right for you?

Nespresso Automatic Espresso Machine Range

Before making your purchase, there are a few factors that you may want to consider. Answering these simple questions will steer you in the right direction.

  1. What style of coffee do you enjoy?
  2. How many cups of coffee do you drink per day?
  3. How much counter and storage space do you have in your kitchen?

Nespresso Beverage Options

Café au lait or espresso?

Whether you enjoy a straight espresso shot or a rich, milky latte, there’s a Nespresso machine for every preference. Prefer a small or larger cup of coffee? You’re able to create your favourite style coffee — from ristretto, espresso, lungo and long blacks, to cappuccinos, lattes or even iced coffees.

Prefer straight espresso without any milk?

Short or long, strong or decaf, Nespresso delivers a consistent espresso, layered with creamy, dense crema.

Prefer lattes and cappuccinos?

Choose from Nespresso’s range of milk and latte machines that include either standalone or integrated milk frothers. The Creatista and Lattissima models feature versatile settings that allow you to create a variety of coffee and milk recipes using barista-like customisation through sophisticated one-touch systems.

How many cups of coffee?

As Nespresso machines come in a variety of sizes to suit your space and style, some machines are able to hold more used capsules than others (from 6 to 13 capsules). If you need to make several cups in one go, choose a model that has a rapid heat-up time (some as fast as 25 seconds) and larger water tank (up to 1.5L).

How much storage space?

Really, this comes down to the size of the machine. The Essenza Mini models are sleek, slim and ultra light, so they’re able to fit into any space. CitiZ & Milk are between 15.4cm – 19.4cm, while the Expert & Milk and Creatista Plus models are the largest in the range.

Whichever model you choose to go with, Nespresso machines all deliver on the promise of what they’re designed to be — stylish, simple, efficient and very easy to use.
