"Although simple in design, the Nespresso Inissia functions as a top-quality coffee machine."
The Nespresso Inissia Coffee Machine is one of the most affordable and simply effortless coffee makers on the market. Priced at between $110 and $150, the Inissia is an excellent investment if you’re on a budget, or if you’re looking for a straightforward coffee machine that serves delicious coffee. The Nespresso Inissia is a single-serve coffee maker and is manufactured by De’Longhi, renowned for producing high-quality small appliances and is a well-known brand amongst coffee connoisseurs. The Inissia is automatically operated and measures 12.6 x 4.7 x 9 inches with a weight of just over 5 lbs, so it’s easy to move around and sit in the perfect place for you.
The overall design of the Nespresso Inissia is sleek and straightforward. The Inissia is compact and comes in a choice of two finish options, either black or silver. So, there’s no doubt this coffee maker will fit into the style of your home, and it certainly won’t take up much countertop space thanks to its small size. The Nespresso logo stands out on the front and side of the coffee machine, with the water tank located at the back to be discreet. This works well, as from the front of the coffee machine you wouldn’t be able to tell the water tank is even there. The Inissia is fully functional and benefits from a smart energy saving mode, so it switches off automatically after 9 minutes. Even though it could become irritating if you use your coffee machine quite often throughout the day for refilling purposes, it’s advantageous from an efficiency perspective, particularly as the Nespresso Inissia is rated A in the energy consumption class.
Although simple in design, the Nespresso Inissia functions as a top-quality coffee machine with a variety of features to keep even the biggest coffee lovers happy. With just a simple press of a button, the Inissia heats the water to the optimum temperature in only 25 seconds, so you won’t have to stand around waiting for your coffee. This is one of the quickest heating times of any espresso coffee machine, so the Nespresso Inissia is certainly up there in terms of efficiency. The water tank itself can hold up to 24 oz in one go, so it’s easy enough to make up to 9 single-serve cups of coffee before having to refill. Although some customers have noted that the water tank is quite small, when you consider how compact the machine is anyway and how quick it is at heating up, this is really a non-issue.
There are in total, two coffee options available on the Inissia, either Espresso or Lungo (long black). These come in the cup sizes 1.35 oz and 5 oz respectively. The overall feedback credits the quality taste of both coffee options, with bitter tasting coffee being a thing of the past. The high-pressure pump on the Inissia comes with a patented extraction system, meaning delivery of up to 19 bars of pressure to produce a barista-quality cup of coffee you can only get from the Nespresso Inissia. There is no option to make milk-based coffees such as cappuccinos and lattes on the Inissia, but you can warm milk up separately and add it to the espresso or lungo to create a deliciously milky coffee.
This espresso coffee maker is only compatible with Nespresso compatible capsules, so you can’t use ground coffee in this machine. The capsules are recycle-friendly and come with an aluminium seal to keep the coffee as fresh and tasty as possible. If you’re looking at how to make your coffee-making routine straightforward, this machine is for you. Put in the capsule, press the button and it’s that simple.
Ease of Use
With such a compact size, the Nespresso Inissia coffee machine is easy to clean. Although there is no automatic cleaning option, this coffee maker’s size and simple design mean it doesn’t take long to clean. The used capsules are dropped into a compartment underneath which is easily removable, and they can be emptied into the recycling. Also, the water tank can also be removed and cleaned with ease. Other than that, it’s very easy to maintain cleanliness.
To make the Inissia as easy to use as possible, De’Longhi has included effective functions to make it as user-friendly as possible. For example, the two option buttons of either espresso or lungo flash while the machine is getting the water up to temperature, and once the perfect temperature is set, the buttons will stop flashing and light up in a green color. This makes it easy to know when the machine is ready to start making your drink and remember, this is all done in less than 30 seconds! The Inissia also comes with a folding drip tray to make room for larger cups when the lungo mode is selected. It’s a very easy-to-use machine, with many customers praising this aspect of the Inissia. There is a manual if you want to investigate making different versions of coffee, but it’s ideally suited to the espresso or long black coffee drinker.
Overall, the Nespresso Inissia Coffee machine delivers in its prime function of making great-tasting coffee at a great price. This machine comes with a two-year warranty, so you know you’re getting excellent customer service from manufacturers De’Longhi. Although there is a lack of technical features on this coffee maker, it makes a fantastic cup of coffee and is one of the most user-friendly coffee machines available to buy. If you’re looking for a coffee machine that’s simple to operate in a sleek design that makes a fantastic coffee every time, the Nespresso Inissia is the one for you.
