Have you noticed your espresso machine is not working like it use to? Suddenly you only get half a cup of coffee instead of a full cup. Did the problem still persist after trying our Caffenu® Cleaning Capsules & Descaler?

Well, we have some good news! There’s no need to throw out your Nespresso® machine and replace it. This one is an easy fix! If your Nespresso only gives you half a cup, its most likely that you accidentally reprogrammed the pour volume. This can happen when you push the button to start and then push it again to stop before it has completed its pre-programmed pour.

A factory reset is really easy to do and will take you back to the original pour volumes (40ml, 100ml and for some machines, 25ml). We have compiled a list of how to program or reset some of the most popular Nespresso® machines. Find your machine below and simply reset its pour volume to factory settings or to your desired preference.

 

Nespresso® Pixie®

Did you know that your Nespresso® Pixie® is designed to remember your favourite cup size?

If you mainly use the espresso function, then your Pixie® automatically selects this function the next time you make a cup of coffee. It also allows you to set the desired amount of water precisely according to your preferences.

Here’s how to set your desired amount of water:

  4. Insert a coffee capsule into the capsule compartment.
