Top 5 FAQ
If you press a cup button and no water comes out of the spout, it is possible that the machine has an air bubble which most often occurs when the tank runs empty or after a period of non-use.
For the Essenza and Le Cube machine, simply lift the coffee lever and push it away from you. While applying pressure, press either cup button until water appears in the capsule chamber.
CitiZ, Pixie, and Lattissima owners can fill the water tank, eject any capsule in the chamber, close the coffee lever and press the large cup button. The auto-prime function will push the air from the circuit. When water begins to flow through the spout, the air bubble has been released.
For owners of machines with steam arms (D290 Concept), it is best to activate the steam/hot water function. The lower pressure this function operates with allows the air to be released with greater ease.

Nespresso removes over 99.9% of the caffeine from green coffee by using water as solvent. This is known as the Swiss Water® Process of decaffeination. Green coffee grains are soaked in hot water in order to dissolve the caffeine. The decaffeinated beans are then dried while active carbon is used to absorb the caffeine from the water. The dried beans are soaked again in the water now free of caffeine. This process is repeated until the beans are 99.9% caffeine free. Finally, the green coffee beans are dried, roasted and then ground.
The residual caffeine content in Nespresso decaffeinated blends is below 0.1%, in accordance with all regulatory requirements. Nespresso currently offers three varieties of decaffeinated coffee (Vivalto Lungo Decaffeinato, Volluto Decaffeinato, Ristretto Decaffeinato and Arpeggio Decaffeinato). The water extraction process maintains the aromas and flavors of the bean. The decaffeinated Nespresso varieties undergo the same quality controls applied to all Nespresso Grands Crus blends.
The calorie content of a brewed espresso is negligible. There are 1260 Kj (300 Kcal) in 100 grams of roasted and ground coffee.
Nespresso espresso capsules contain 5.5 grams of coffee on average, whereas the lungos contain approximately 7 grams of coffee per capsule. Taking note of the fact that the coffee grounds are not consumed whole but rather their contents are dissolved in water, the calorie count is even less. A 1.35 oz/40 ml cup of espresso contains approximately 0.6 calories while a 3.75 oz/110 ml lungo contains approximately 1.0 calorie.
