Cup size programming on your Nespresso® machine

How to set the amount of water dispensed from your Nespresso® machine, and how to return to the default settings.


To consistently get a great taste from your coffee capsules, you can program how much water is dispensed each time. At Real Coffee we recommend an espresso size of 40ml, with a lungo of 100ml. If you prefer your coffee extra strong, adjust the size of your espresso to 30ml and your lungo to 80ml.
You can also reset your Nespresso® machine to its default settings. This means your machine will make an espresso at 40ml and a lungo at 110ml.

 

Setting the cup size for Nespresso Pixie®

Did you know that your Nespresso Pixie® is designed to remember your favourite cup size? For example, if you primarily use the espresso function, then your Pixie automatically selects this function, the next time you make a cup of coffee. You can also set the desired amount of water precisely according to your preferences.

 

Here's how:

  1. Make sure the machine is turned on and the water container is full.

  2. A button will flash for 25 seconds until the water is hot.

  3. When the light stops flashing, the machine is ready.

  4. Insert a coffee capsule into the capsule compartment.

  5. Press and hold the button / function you wish to program.

  6. Release the button when you have brewed the desired amount of coffee

 

You have now set the desired amount of water and the machine is ready for use again.
