Top 5 FAQ
The 23 Grands Crus and Limited Editions do not contain allergens, including gluten, lactose or nuts. The Nespresso Grands Crus 23 blends are made of 100% pure coffee, and hermetically sealed to avoid being exposed to air, moisture, or any contamination. Any reference to "malt", "milk", or "cocoa" are components of the flavour profile (naturally occurring in the grain) and do not indicate physical presence in the capsule.
The Grands Crus of the Variations family are 100% allergen free. Based on our current intensity of 6 of the Grand Cru, Livanto, the variations are exquisitely made with naturally extracted ingredients, without added sugar or preservatives.
The caloric content of freshly brewed coffee is negligible. There are 1260 KJ (300 kcal) in 100 grams of roast and ground coffee. Each Nespresso espresso capsule contains about 5.5 grams of coffee, and Lungo capsules contain about 7 grams of coffee per capsule.
Considering the fact that the coffee beans are not consumed as a whole, but rather their content dissolved in water, the amount of calories is even less. A 40 millilitre cup of espresso coffee contains approximately 0.6 calories, while 110 millilitres of Lungo coffee contain 1.0 calories.
Nespresso recommends you descale your machine on a regular basis, every 12 months or every 600 capsules.
Over time, water used during brewing may cause internal mineral build up, which can affect the flow, temperature and overall performance of your machine.
Nespresso has a descaling kit available for each machine model. Each kit contains two packs of lactic acid solution good for two cleanings and costs $120.00 MXN. Descaling kits are available for purchase by toll-free phone or online and in all our Nespresso Boutiques.
The amount of caffeine in a capsule depends on the green coffee varieties used on the recipe. The Robusta origin contains an average of 2,4% of caffeine, whereas the Arábica origin contains approximately 1,3%. The classic Nespresso capsules contain approximately 5 grams of grain coffee, whereas the Lungo capsules contain approximately 6 grams of grain coffee.
For example, a pure Arábica coffee in a 5g Nespresso capsule contains 65 milligrams of caffeine.
For Nespresso, the most important priority is the supply of the highest quality coffee beans and unique espresso blends to provide to our members worldwide. Currently there are no plans to add hot tea or chocolate capsules to our selection of Grands Crus. We are constantly making available Grands Crus and Variations limited editions with new scents.
