Tips til at brygge på nespresso maskine - ønsk kaffe

1) Setting the cup size

  • Turn on the machine and fill the water tank with filtered water
  • Insert a coffee capsule into the machine
  • Press the button (espresso or lungo) that you want to set
  • Hold the button until you reach the desired amount

We recommend brewing an espresso in 10 seconds, equivalent to 22 millilitres.

We recommend brewing lungo capsules in 30 seconds, equivalent to 80 milliliters.

2) Use fresh and filtered water

A cup of coffee consists of 90% water.

Therefore, the quality of the water of course also means a lot to the taste. In fact, much more than most people think.

In Denmark we have a lot of lime in the water, especially in and around the big cities. The hard water corrodes your nespresso machine and has a negative effect on the fine aromas of the coffee.

Especially the fruity undertones are very fragile to lime.

We therefore recommend a filtration jug , which removes lime from the water and adds magnesium. The result is the perfect water for one of a flavored cup of coffee.

3) Rinse with water before inserting the capsule into the machine

A super easy and good tip to get a better taste is by rinsing some water through the nespresso machine before you put your coffee capsule in.

To do this, press one of the brew buttons – it does not matter which one – before inserting the capsule.

This helps to remove old coffee residues that are stuck in the brew head and the pipes.

When the coffee grounds and its oils sit in the machine for too long, you will get some bitter tastes that you do not want to have in your cup.

4) Descale your machine

You should descale your machine approximately every 2-3. month, depending on how much you use it.

When the taste becomes flat or the machine does not brew at a stable temperature, it is time for descaling.

How to descale your nespresso machine

  1. Fill the water tank with descaling liquid, or a vinegar mixture consisting of: 1 part household vinegar
    1 part water Make a total of 500 ml vinegar mixture.
  2. Turn on the machine
  3. Empty the drip tray
  4. Place a large container under the brew head
  5. Initiate descaling
  6. Hold down the espresso button and the lungo button at the same time for 3 seconds.
  7. The two buttons will start flashing. Then press the lung button and the descaling will begin.
  8. When the descaling liquid has run through, use the same liquid again and fill the water tank – and run the same program again.
  9. Cleaning
  10. Fill the water tank with fresh water and run a descaling program in the same way as before.
  11. End the descaling program by pressing the two buttons for 3 seconds.

That’s it.
