The Easiest Way to Clean a Nespresso Machine (Original Line)

gourmesso cleaning capsules compatible with nespresso original machines

Coffee is a delectable treat that many people consume at least once a morning if not two or three different times a day. That is why many people have taken it upon themselves to avoid having to make those early morning trips to the local coffee shop by getting themselves a Nespresso machine for their home. This allows them to make their coffee / espresso / lungo just the way that they like it each morning.

However, Nespresso consumers may start to notice after a while, that the coffee being produced by their Nespresso Original machine starts to lose a bit of its taste quality. This is not an issue with the coffee itself, but rather a result of a lack of machine cleaning of particularly the brewing chamber of their OriginalLine machine. When it goes too long in between cleanings, or when heavily used, the machine begins to develop buildups of dirt, calcium, and lime from the water and coffee that travels through it. If these deposits are left to fester, they can begin to affect the taste and appearance of the coffee that the machine produces. The machine lifetime may actually get reduced when not cleaned regularly.

This why it is so important that homeowners learn how to clean and descale their Nespresso machines, so that they can keep their coffee tasting as fresh as always. Luckily, we are here to break down the easiest method of descaling Nespresso machines as well as cleaning the brewing chamber for coffee-at-home drinkers.

Use Gourmesso or KleanPerk Cleaning Capsules

While there are multiple ways to clean a Nespresso machine, there is none easier than using a cleaning capsule. These unique cleaning capsules are capable of bringing many benefits to a Nespresso machine.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of them all is that the cleaning capsules remove bitter coffee oil residue from the brew chamber, exit spout, and nozzle. When this bitter residue is allowed to remain, it can actually alter the taste of the coffee. No one wants to take a sip of their morning coffee only to find that it tastes far too bitter and has wasted an entire coffee pod.

Another great benefit of using these cleaning capsules is that it extends the lifespan of the Nespresso machine. When machines are not taken care of, they tend to break down much earlier than those that are taken care of.

    How To Use Our Cleaning Capsules

    Using these capsules to clean a Nespresso machine is easier than ever. It starts with the homeowner putting the cleaning capsule into the brewer. Then they tell the machine to brew the largest cup size twice. After that, the calcium and lime build-up will have been eliminated and the owner can take the capsule out of the brewer. Then they just need to brew the largest cup size two more times to thoroughly rinse out the machine.

    How Often Should The Cleaning Capsules Be Used?

    Using our cleaning capsules at the appropriate times is an important part of keeping the Nespresso machine in good working order. For daily drinkers, we recommend to use our cleaning capsules once a week. If you are just occasionally enjoying a cup or two, adjust your cleaning habits accordingly and reduce to a bi-weekly or monthly cleaning pod use with the machine.
