Nespresso Club - Page 66

post #976 of 1019
After 50 tanks of water it will still have the taste in it. I am considering getting a new machine every time it is time to descale.

Is the inissia a good intro model?
post #978 of 1019
My machine seems to be on its last legs. Furst cup is always lukewarm. After wasting a lot of capsules, I finally learned to run a blank or old capsule first before trying to make something to drink. That works fine for now, but I am concerned that eventually the second cup will also be room temperature.
Has anyone experienced this before? Is it a recognizable fix or should I just leave it be and replace it when it stops working for real.

The temperature has always been a complaint with Nespresso machines as far as I remember.

I always run one cup without a capsule after the light stops blinking. Then I make my double Nespresso. Then I run a double cup without a capsule to clear the machine. Seems to work for me.

That is a lot of effort and hadn't seemed necessary before. I guess I will just run a clean cup each time first for as long as that works.

Heads-up for anyone interested:

The Nespresso website (at least in Canada) has a promotion starting 06-November-2015, where if you purchase a machine for a minimum of $199 CAD you receive a $100 rebate a week later that can be used on accessories and coffee...!

Should I buy the Inissia w/ milk frother for $199? Or the Pixie for $249? The Pixie doesn't seem to do much differently, and it's bigger/heavier?

How often do you clean (ie de-scale) your machine?

 

If you haven't done it for a while, it could be worth doing so as that could be the root of the problem.

 

If it doesn't fix it, then it's probably a more serious problem.

just fwiw if you like milky drinks then do the former. I have a lower-end machine (i think it's the most basic) and for my three-or-so cups a week it works without any hitches. I would imagine the bigger machines are quicker and might have marginal improvements on texture etc but I wouldn't know.

That said... wow, that Milano is good. It's supposed to be a ristretto but as a full espresso it's wonderful. Really well balanced and flavorful, just gets under the line for too intense for me.

A new limited edition should come early next year the salesman told me.

I also picked up a pod of alternates last week because they were like $4. All the flavors were good but man... they're all kinda watery and not in a good way.

Oh, yeah, meant to mention those... they are all Christmas-themed and I didn't even waste a pod to try any. Palermo is sold out but I was told it is essentially a more intense version of Milano. Never got a chance to try Palermo. Milano is almost sold out!

I mentioned the Malabar Monsoon and the sales rep (Frenchie) got all sad, dipped his head and went "yes, that was a very successful one."

BRING BACK THE MALABAR!

Palermo was still available at my local Nespresso store this past Saturday. I bought 12 sleeves.

Thank all for the advice. There definitely seems to be some kind of mechanical failure looming. Yesterday, he machine made clunking, grinding, hissing noises and drained the reservoir into the catch basin with each clunk/hiss but wouldn't work at all. By chance it worked today. I looked at replacement models and I think I would rather get it repaired. Has anyone any experience with long out of warranty Nespresso repairs.

I had the same thing happen to a Keurig machine once, but not with my Nespresso. I would suggest reaching out to Nespresso tech support to see if they have any suggestions.
