  • ​Why Reset your Nespresso Machines

    Some people may be questioning why you would ever want  to reset your Nespresso machine in the first place. Well, there are several reasons you might want to do this.


    Some nespresso machines allow for you to program your machine exactly how you want it. This includes several different aspects including cup sizes and the amount of water you want to use when making a certain type of espresso. After a while of use, you may have forgotten the original settings that came with the machine. This means you might not be able to make a certain type of drink anymore. Resetting your entire machine is very helpful in this situation. Just make sure to record some of the programming you already have on the device before resetting.


    Another great reason to reset is when you no longer want your Nespresso machine. When giving your machine to another person, they may find themselves confused with the custom programming you have done. Resetting your machine will remove this confusion and allow for others to use the machine as if they just bought it.
