Nespresso Expert offers an impressive range of settings. Just rotate the buttons to adjust the camera settings to your personal preferences.
You can choose from 4 cup sizes: Ristretto, Espresso, Lungo, and the new Nespresso Americano – for a light, long-lasting coffee experience.
You can also choose to extract only hot water while at the same time being able to choose between 3 temperatures: warm, hot, very hot.
Nespresso Expert offers a uniquely innovative design as it is inspired by the world of barista and is designed to fit perfectly to the wall.
Nespresso Expert handling is straightforward and user-friendly. It also features a powerful espresso extractor and a rotary dial for coffee and temperature settings. All these are sealed with a flawless aluminum finish.
The Nespresso Expert machine raises the bar to a new level of culinary experience and specialization. We recommend the new Nespresso Americano mug size, which is now added to the Nespresso vocabulary.
The setting for Americano will give you a large and delicious cup of coffee, made from 25ml of coffee and 125ml of hot water. The result in your mug is a smooth, sweet, and full of coffee but at the same time, retains its distinctive character.
Preparing a larger mug of coffee, adding 125 ml of hot water to 25ml of espresso, delivers sweet notes reminiscent of nuts or honey while at the same time providing freshness and balance. A thin layer of cream will adorn the top of your coffee. All American Ristretto and Espresso Coffee Varieties, including Variations, are recommended for the Americano recipe.

- Easy to use and clean
- 3 temperature settings
- Bluetooth technology integrated
- 4 cup sizes available and 1st time Americano is included

Nespresso Machine- Guide of Purchase
Nespresso changed the whole scene when it comes to espresso. Also, we admit that it is not an easy thing in the world to make your choice. You may get confused in product features and specs. Not to mention that not all of us have the luxury of time to learn about the details of each Nespresso machine. So, we are here to help and enlighten you to pick among the top list of choices for a Nespresso machine.
a) How much money do you wish to spend?
Well, Nespresso devices start from $50 and may exceed the $500 so you can imagine that first, you need to define your budget. We must say here that when your need is just to have multiple shots of Espresso within a day, then you the low-priced Nespresso machines can suit you just fine. If you are a “Cappuccino” type or you prefer a latte or any other coffee that requires frother or Aeroccino, then you realize that you need to spend more than $50.
b) Coffee preferences
It is suggested to have a look at the sizes of brewing. If you are a fan of lungo espresso coffee, then you should check if your favorite Nespresso machine can brew it. Then you have to decide if you wish to have a milk frother or not with your espresso machine or not.
c) Storage, Nespresso machine size and style
The majority of Nespresso machines are sleek and compact. When you decide to purchase a more expensive machine, which will offer other features than single shots, then you should check your kitchen counter space before buying.
Take a look at the Nespresso machine’s dimensions and figure out the counter space that the device requires. Most of the buyers find the design of a Nespresso attractive and will not have an issue when matching with their kitchen other appliances. But you could take notice of the colors available and overall design to find the perfect Nespresso option for your taste.
d) Machine easy to use, clean and maintain
In the morning the time for most of us is quite limited and especially if you are not a morning type like me. So you need a push-a-button solution rather than to figure out the available options that you have. Regarding the cleaning part, I think that you do not have to worry about since all of the Nespresso machines are easy to clean. You may need a little more time for cleaning if you prefer cappuccino in the morning.
Maintenance is easy for Nespresso, and you need to purchase the Nespresso descaling kit approximately every 6 months and follow the simple instructions. Nespresso machine descaling actually is a brewing procedure with the kit. If you are a heavy user of the Nespresso machine, then you should consider descaling more often. By doing this, you remove contents of mineral to your water tank and sanitize the Nespresso machine. This will ensure the same quality, flavor, and aroma of your Espresso shots.
e) Warranty and coverage
We couldn’t ignore the warranty terms when purchasing any product or service. The same stands for a Nespresso machine as well.
Various Nespresso Machine Options
- Essenza – This is an entry Nespresso machine with a limited selection of characteristics and compact dimensions that lets it match on most kitchen counters. Additionally, it has an ergonomic design to make it simple to use. However, it’s not the same fast as other types like the Pixie and does not include a cup warmer.
- CitiZ – This type also features three models, including the regular type, the Nespresso CitiZ&Milk, and the CitiZ & Co. The Nespresso CitiZ&Milk comes with an “Aeroccino” milk frother while the CitiZ & Co. consists of two different espresso machines departed by a shared water tank.
- Pixie – This range is well known for its simplicity and low-price of the Nespresso Essenza although it can give brewing temperature in about 25 seconds. Nevertheless, it does not become with a milk frother which cappuccino lovers may desire.
- U-series – This option is offered with three different classifications – the standard, the U Milk which becomes with a milk frother, and the U Mat, which has the identical characteristics but with a premium matte surface. All of them have robust and adaptable features.
- Latissima + – This type has created to brew milk-based beverage and is equipped with a milk carafe and a milk steamer. Apart from just making latte, cappuccino or shot of espresso, you can also make adjustments to the flavor with the additional set of control buttons on the front of the Nespresso machine.
- Maestria – This type is for experimentations and helps you to become a barista expert. It provides a set of additional option in brewing your espresso. It comes with a steam pipe that allows you to control the warmth and form of the milk. You can add as extras a shaker, Cappuccino and Barista Kit that you can find available online.
What to look for in a Nespresso Espresso machine?
With what criteria do we evaluate and review Nespresso machines?
Being a single brand, Nespresso, we consider that the most essential value is that of differentiation. Most of the Nespresso espresso machines shown in this article have very similar qualities: 19 bar pressure, automatic shutdown system, energy saving, size adjustment capacity, etc.
And, although we value them very much and consider that they are more than enough to give us our vote of approval. We believe that the real detail is the difference. Is the difference in the design? In size? In the taste? That is at the discretion of the consumer. For me, the difference between Nespresso machines is the quality, innovative features, and exceptionality.
A little more information about Nespresso ...
As a promoter of the quality product Nescafé, belonging to the Nestlé group, Nespresso is a brand that creates alliances with different coffee houses. These coffee houses are of national and international design to take to all corners of the planet, the versatility, and freshness of a good coffee. In this post, we saw some design alliances with Krups and De’Longhi, faithful companions of the well-known Nespresso capsule pods and espresso drinkers.
Conclusion: What is the best Nespresso espresso machine to buy?
I believe that by reading this long post you should feel confident about what is the best Nespresso machine and how to find what is the best Nespresso machine for your needs.
If you are now entering the Nespresso coffee world, then you should spend a little in order to get an entry level espresso machine. If you love the quality of espresso beverages, then you should keep this entry level as your second machine and get a primary one with more features.
With a high-end Nespresso machine you could enjoy more variables in coffee volumes. You could extract single shots of Espresso or even an Americano. When adding milk to your Nespresso coffee options, I believe that you will love your Nespresso machine.
